The Kit Kat Guest Ranch is a legal, licensed brothel located about 7 miles (11 km) east of Carson City[1] in the unincorporated town of Mound House, in Lyon County, at 48 Kit Kat Drive.[2] The ranch was owned by Dennis Hof until his death in October 2018.[3]

It sits along the east side of a loop at the south end of Kit Kat Drive, which also is the home to two other brothels owned by Hof: The Love Ranch and the Sagebrush Ranch.[4] The name of this brothel is often shortened to the Kit Kat Ranch.

History[edit]

The ranch originally opened in 1963,[4] and was first licensed (special use permit) in 1980.[2] The ranch came under the ownership of Jacie Caramella and her mother Shelia[5] in 2001.[2] Porn star Rebecca Love, who worked at the ranch as a guest celebrity at times, was named spokesman for the ranch in 2005.[6] At the time it was one of the few brothels in Nevada to regularly feature porn stars such as Dennis Hof's former girlfriend[7] Sunset Thomas.[8][9]

The ranch was brought from the Caramellas by Dennis Hof in October 2012.[2] Hof shut the ranch for an extensive multi-million dollar renovation. It reopened in May 2016.[10][4]
