Everything we could ask for

5 of 5
Our family stayed at the Gardner Mountain house and were so impressed by the attention to detail that the owner put into this house. From the beautifully landscaped front lawn to the pristine linens and cozy furnishings. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessities, the bathrooms have organic toiletries and the shower in the master has beautiful stone tile and a bench! You can tell that this house was built to be a home and not just a rental property. The house is large, very clean and fairly new. It's very well run by a great management company. We had to check in early to get to a wedding and they went above and beyond to clean the house as fast as possible so we could get in. It was in a great location to check out the sites in South Lake Tahoe whether it be skiing or going for a hike to Emerald Bay. Our kids loved the bunk beds and collecting pine cones in the yard and we loved the spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The Gardner Mountain house truly was a home away from home for us. We were sad to leave and plan on booking the house for a longer vacation in the near future.

Gorgeous home, good location, some significant problems with details

4 of 5
We spent four nights in the Gardner Retreat as part of a gathering to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. Our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 kids. This is a very nice house with many luxury touches—gourmet kitchen, beautiful living room, large windows, huge garage, gorgeous bathrooms, etc. However, there are serious shortcomings in this vacation rental considering the cost. The first evening, we could scarcely use the living room/kitchen on account of there being no window treatments of any kind. The sun was so bright and so totally unobstructed in the room with floor to ceiling windows that the sunshine was simply too hot and overwhelming. We could not use the dining area table, or if we did, only one side of it, as we had to face away from the sun. Add to this that the house does not have air conditioning, and this was a pretty significant disappointment for our group. It must be said that the company overseeing the property went out of it's way to deal with the problem—the following day they came out and put up temporary black plastic sheeting over the vaulted windows, and this did help with the glare and the heat enough for us to be able to use the room, relatively comfortably. The house still warmed up into the 80s, but it would cool off in the evenings once the sun set. We were told that the owners, for some reason vehemently opposed to window treatments of any kind, have now approved tinting for the windows. I hope this helps, but it will be a risk that future renters will be taking, especially during the summer. I don't think this is an issue in the winter (sun sets so much earlier, and bright sunshine is nice in the winter mountains!). Several other issues came up that make it feel like the owners must not spend much time in the house, as anyone would deal with these things if they were forced to endure them more than once or twice. The sofas in the living room are almost not functional—the back rest is basically a freestanding upholstered structure that is constantly in danger of sliding back and off of the base. Seriously, normal sitting on the sofa can lead to a sudden loss of half the sofa! Also, the hallway bathroom on the main floor—high quality granite, nice fixtures, very attractive—is more fashionable than functional; it has a trendy sink with fancy faucet but almost no counter space or place to put toiletries. Easily fixed with freestanding bathroom furniture, but a problem right now. This could be 5 stars if problems were addressed.

Best Family Reunion Yet

5 of 5
My family of 42 stayed at the Mountain Home recently in June 2010. The property was especially geared for a group of our size or larger. Mountain Home's floorplan is set up ideally with bedrooms in blocks, so we could put family groups in the appropriate areas (such as those with babies away from the pool table/hot tub areas) The location of Mountain Home was convenient to hiking, biking, the lake and activities we took part in including the Renaissance Fair, Miniature Golf, shopping. And speaking of shopping it was located less than one mile from a grocery store, drug store and coffee house, so if we ever needed any item it was just a 15 minute roundtrip back to Mountain Home. Even though the property is located near shopping it is also on the route up towards Emerald Bay and had the woodsy feel. The property was clean and organized. We used only the beds available in the bedrooms and did not need to use the futons in the common areas, but they were especially nice to relax in and maybe catch a wink or two while watching a movie. The website photos of Mountain Home were very accurate and we we only surprised by the large size of the rooms and property. Mountain Home has all the amenities to provide entertainment at their location. We played volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, kayaking and pool as provided for as well as lots of use in the hot tub. The owners provided 2 firepits for us to use on the patio in the evenings as well as 2 BBQs. There was an abundance of seating available both inside and out. We only encountered one issue with a broken washing machine which was handled almost immediately by the maintenance person Efrain. We can't speak more highly than of the service we received from Rebecca and Efrain. If there was anything that came up or we needed they were there in no time and or called back immediately. We would definitely recommend this property for any other groups, whether you are a family or not. Everyone in the family agreed this was the best reunion yet and the best part was we got to spend a lot of time together and didn't have to leave the property to find things to do. We look forward to returning in 2012.
