The historic ghost town of Cerro Gordo is now available by reservation. You and your group can now enjoy the 1868 townsite; including the 1871 American Hotel, the fully restored 1904 Bunkhouse
(accommodating up to 12), and the 1868 Belshaw House (accommodating up to 4). You will enjoy colorful history and artifacts in the General Store (now a museum, complete with viewing deck) an assay office, and numerous other remaining structures. Cerro Gordo, a museum in restorative
reuse, is billed as the only "bed and cook your own breakfast" ghost town in the world.
The townsite is perfect for photography clubs and workshops! Unlike Bodie, Cerro Gordo is privately owned and you set your own shooting schedule according to the light and not the clock. The photo opportunities are too numerous to mention. The views are truly spectacular. you can see the majestic Mount Whitney, the Sierras reflected on the Owens Lake playa, vibrant sunsets and beautiful pink and gold sunrises.
You and your group can be comfortably accommodated on site. However, if you require a little less "ambience" and more conventional creature comforts, the picturesque little town of Lone Pine nestled at the foot of the Sierras is only 20 miles away.
