Carson Valley, Nevada, prides itself on being a “rugged, relaxed, and reachable family destination.”

On our recent trip, we found it to be all these things and so much more. We were glad to have found such a nice place from which to enjoy it all.

DestinationReviewThe Historian Inn was an immaculately clean and very family-friendly lodging experience within the heart of the Carson Valley. Its location is central to shopping gaming, hot springs, the V&T railroad and much of the valley’s history. We did not have our dog with us on this visit but pets are very welcome, with a reasonable pet fee of only $20 for the entire stay.

Upon checking in, we were welcomed into a roomy lodge-style great room that was a relaxing place to read, snack and play games. A Market/Cafe coffee shop and Salon were also nice bonuses on property, convenient for the kids to nosh a bit, and we especially appreciated the lack of the cigarette smoke and gaming noise so often found in Carson Valley properties.

Historian Inn Offers Space, Quiet for Families

For a family always on the go, we appreciated that our room was spacious, neat, well-decorated with western decor and quiet. We enjoyed the historic art and artifacts blended with modern niceties.

Parking was easy and quality amenities like robes and teas and excellent toiletries and snacks were furnished along with extras that were available for purchase. The proximity to dining and recreational activities made it the perfect hub for exploring the area by car or foot.
