Nestled in the foothills of the Ruby Mountains is the picturesque ranch community of Lamoille.
The charming village lies in the center of lush green family farms and meandering country lanes.
The Lamoille Presbyterian Church, built in the prairie style, is a local landmark.
Just a mile beyond the turnoff to Lamoille Canyon, lies the town of Lamoille.
Although its population couldn't exceed a couple of hundred souls, the unincorporated village contains Lamoille Grove, one of Elko County's most popular picnic areas; a United States Post Office; Swisher's, a tiny general store with gas pump; two bars, The Pine Lodge and O'Carroll's, both known for excellent food; The Gallery, where antiques and fine arts are sold; Red Ranch, a conference hotel with helicopter pad for Ruby Mountain Helicopter skiing adventures; and Lamoille Community Presbyterian Church, a 100-year-old frame building with a tall Tiffany-type stained glass windows, favored by many brides, on their wedding days.
The Jaz Ranch, a few miles out of town at the base of Conrad Canyon gives guests a spectacular view of the valley below. In the summer, visitors can take advantage of daily horseback rides, fishing trips and catered parties.
An unused schoolhouse, now designated Lamoille Rancher's Center; Lamoille Women's club and a volunteer firehouse complete with amenities.
