GREAT HOME FOR UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA VISITS and more! Our beautifully furnished family home is located just above the University campus on spectacularly scenic University Ridge. It is next to UNR and Rancho San Rafael Park and close to downtown Reno and only a minute to the city-encircling McCarran Blvd with relatively easy access to shopping, casinos and all freeways. Mackay Stadium, Lawlor Events Center, the Fleischmann Planetarium, the School of Medicine, the Nevada Historical Society and the Post Office are all only 3-5 minutes away.
Our 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 3-car garage home sits at the highest point on the ridge and comfortably accommodates 6 adults sleeping on 3 full-size beds with additional capacity for 2 - 4 more children or adults sleeping on sofas and/or inflatable queen-size beds.

The city/mountain/UNR views from the park are exceptional and it is a popular panoramic photo location both day and night.
