Best bet may be to call the realtors in town and see if they have anything to rent. Elko is really crazy at the moment. There's very few rentals at the moment and if you do find something they will want crazy money for it. All the motels are full of people who cant find rentals. Some of the out of the way mines do bus workers to the mines from surrounding towns. See if his mine does that. Some of the surrounding areas may have housing. Carlin is about 25 miles west and Wells is about 50 miles east. Commute on I-80 wouldn't be bad from either town, except in extreme weather it may be closed.

New2elko~ Nice to meet you! I was actually thinking of typing a post similar to yours. My husband got a job at one of the mines and he will be leaving for Elko on March12. Once he is out there he is staying with a friend that already lives there. I am staying behind til our kids are out of school and our current lease is up, so I wont be out there til August. Anyway, please keep me updated on what you find out. It would be very helpful! Thank you!
And I home there are responses from people whom already live there? :-)
