Sheri's Ranch is a legal brothel, resort and spa in Pahrump, Nevada. Unlike many other brothels in the state, it styles itself as a "resort", with upscale rooms and furnishings, tennis courts, a spa and outdoor swimming pool. A sports bar is also on the premises.
Lora Shaner, a former madam of the brothel, wrote a book about her experiences there: Madam: Chronicles of a Nevada Cathouse (1999, ISBN 0-929712-57-9), later reissued and extended as Madam: Inside a Nevada Brothel (2001, ISBN 0-7596-0367-7).
In 2005, Sheri's Ranch sought local zoning changes in Pahrump in order to build a 700-plus residential subdivision on its 330 acres (130 ha) known as Mountain Shadows Resort.
Sheri's Ranch was featured in the BBC series Panorama about the importance of safe sex, preventative measures taken to avoid the contraction of HIV, and other STD/STIs by Nevada brothel sex workers. 
Sheri's Ranch was featured on the A&E (TV channel) show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels while Gene Simmons was performing research for an upcoming novel. Where he interviewed Scarlett and Tawny Brie.
