Americana at its best – beautiful place with a rural feel, the town of Minden is located south of Carson City along the 395. Upon your arrival, you will gasp at the valley’s pristine glamour. Jobs Peak stand majestically at 10,638 feet separating Lake Tahoe and Minden/Gardnerville. It is flanked by the Pine Nut Mountain range on the east side. This area is known as Douglas County, one of America’s most beautiful places to live, just a hop over the mountain either by taking Kingsbury Grade or Spooner Summit, you’ll reach one of the 7 wonders of the world, fabulous Lake Tahoe. Minden is dear to my heart as I spent many years there raising my family. My sons went to Pinion Elementary School, Carson Valley Middle School and graduated from Douglas High School before going off to college. I loved the time I lived there and return frequently to enjoy a most delicious Basque dinner at JT’s.
