About Ed Pitchford

We designed and built this home as our primary residence. We have a 2nd home in Verdi, NV where we spend 1/2 of the year.

Ed Pitchford purchased this house in 2002

Why Ed Pitchford chose Nevada

We enjoy being out of the summer heat in the Verdi area and enjoy being out of the snow in the winter and golfing in Boulder City instead of shoveling snow

What makes this house unique

This home is located in a quiet, established neighbor hood in the small community of Boulder City, NV. Several local restaurants are 2 miles away. Hiking and biking trails are right out the front door. The Las Vegas Strip is 1/2 hour away.

PERFECT Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Even though I grew up in Boulder City, I did not realize the extent of the beautiful views of Lake Mead that were available there. This house provided them in a very big way with very big windows all along the kitchen and living room. I wanted to have my Portland girlfriends visit Nevada for our annual girls getaway. We have rented houses in various locations for the past 10 years, but this house takes the prize! Add the big horn sheep, and it was constant entertainment of nature. The house is quite lovely, the deck was perfect for early mornings and evenings, and three bathrooms for four women works beautifully! It also sits in a very nice neighborhood which provides great hilly hikes for daily exercise. The owner was especially nice to work with. We hope to return when we can.

Outstanding location and views

  • 5 of 5

As repeat visitors, we spent another wonderful month in Big Horn House beginning mid-April. The house is unique and beautifully appointed. The first level has two comfortable bedrooms and two baths. Downstairs is an apartment-like area with a hide-a-bed couch, which would provide privacy for any visiting guests or for sharing with another couple. The kitchen is the best I’ve encountered in a vacation rental, with nothing spared in the quality of appliances, cookware, dishes, cutlery. There is a large pantry with plenty of space for groceries. Downstairs, the oversized garage has plenty of room for at least one large vehicle; many garages in the neighborhood have boats or other watercraft parked in them. The added attractions, and what keeps bringing us back, are: the view from the back deck – a breath-taking panorama of Lake Mead surrounded by mountains (we almost wore out our arms taking “selfies” our first few mornings at breakfast), and the parade of big horn sheep we watch from our rockers on the front porch. The sheep reverse their journey in the evening and climb back on the mountain. Since they are wild animals, we felt fortunate to be there when they chose to make their way down to greener pastures at nearby Hemenway Park. Boulder City is a charming town with an iconic main drag. There is a festival or celebration of some sort on the town green most weekends…usually motorcycles, antique or classic cars, crafts and artwork and food are involved. Great hiking, biking and boating in the area. The month went by much too quickly, but we’ll be back!

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Big Horn House and it was perfect! House was amazing, beautiful views, shaded decks, fully stocked kitchen, nice big garage. We brought our boat and spent the week on the lakes. Owner was very nice. Only complaint is that we didn't stay longer! Thank you!

Post Christmas Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Thanks partly to the beauty and pristine condition of this lovely property; we enjoyed a fantastic week with our family. Because we are a family that loves to cook, we so appreciated the fully supplied kitchen with every pot and pan and utensils we needed to do so. Of course the twice a day viewing of the Rams and Ewes that graces the property was totally unique and entertaining. We also appreciated the gorgeous view of Lake Meed from the living window and the close proximity to the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas.

We would highly recommend this property and certainly consider a return visit!

The Big Horn House

  • 5 of 5

We regularly rent homes on and have not had a bad experience. Locations have included California, Nevada, Arizona (for a memorable Barrett Jackson week) and Oregon. That said, the Big Horn House had been by far the best. The view of Lake Mead is spectacular and the house is spacious, clean and comfortable. The big plus for us was the large attached boat garage that, as far as I know, is not available anywhere else this close to the lake. Further, the owner is really accommodating and our stays have been completely hassle free. This was our second rental of the house and we will definitely be back.

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We've used VRBO to rent vacation homes for more than 10 years. This home is by far one of our overall favorites: an ideal location with a daily parade of big-horn sheep at our front door, and a back deck panorama of Lake Mead. Mark, the local manager, dropped by shortly after our arrival to answer any questions. The home itself is very nicely furnished, beds are comfortable and the kitchen had everything I needed to pump out our meals. We could walk right from the house to the hiking trails, or drive a mile west for more challenging adventures. Boulder City itself is a charming, welcoming town. We've already committed to return next year.
