Our Mission is to provide inviting spaces, new opportunities and lasting memories.

The Stargazer Inn and Bristlecone General Store are in Baker, Nevada, the gateway community to Great Basin National Park. Our 10 room hotel and general store have everything you need to insure cozy, nourished, and fun adventures in Great Basin National Park and Beyond!


Great Basin National Park is one of the most remote parks in the country with the oldest trees (Bristlecone Pines), the longest caves (Lehman Caves), the tallest mountains (Wheeler Peak, 13,061ft), the quietest trails and the darkest skies. Your adventures will lead you to new heights and fill you with awe & wonder.


The Stargazer Inn & Bristlecone General Store are also a perfect destination while driving or biking through the great American West. Nevada's stretch of Highway 50 is called  The Loneliest Road in America. For hundreds of miles it is likely you will see more mountain peaks than cars. The open road is waiting for you!

Stay and Play Under the Milk Way!


Owner & Chief Enthusiasm Officer

The idea of owning a general store and small roadside inn has been a dream of mine for twenty years. My husband, James, works for the National Park Service and we have spent three decades exploring our country's natural and cultural wonders. When we are in remote areas we love finding local shops and quaint places to stay that offer the goods and services we need. They are often lifesavers!

Twenty years ago I had a vision that when James retires, we would open a business at a crossroads of outdoor recreation opportunities that would offer travelers and local residents the most pertinent needs for daily living and adventures. It would be a hub of local information and community building; a place of comfort, coffee and conversation; a showcase for local artisans; and outlet of outdoor gear and clothing; and an oasis for travelers along their journeys.

We moved to Baker, NV, three years ago and it instantly felt like home. The community is small but robust and the Nevada landscape is stunning. We found our crossroads. Recently, when a downtown Baker business announced they were putting the property up for sale, I knew the timing was right to make my dream a reality.
