When Robert Frost wrote those famous words, he may have been thinking about the Gardner Mountain Home's quiet, mountain cul-de-sac. Or, maybe he was contemplating about one of the nearby trails through the National Forest? Once you're here, you can choose your own path. Regardless whether you decide to relax in the hot tub or chill at the lake, choose your own path and it will make all the difference.

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.
Really enjoyed staying at this home. The bedrooms were perfect size. The upstairs bedroom was very large and the closet was big enough to put a porta-crib in for my grandson. (Door open of course) we enjoyed the beautiful backyard and jacuzzi. We also like the fact that it is close to Anderson's Bike Rental ( we rent from them every year) Pope Beach and Camp Richardson's famous Ice Cream Parlor. We have been going to Tahoe for almost 30 years now from the East Coast and we would rent this house again. The only thing I would recommend to the owner is have a vacuum available. I am a neat freak and would have loved to have vacuumed. . (We were there for 10 days). Other than that, the kitchen was stocked fairly well and they did have a broom. (Lol) Also, if you go out of the house to your right there is a great trail to either bike, run or hike. As you can see we loved our time in Tahoe and this house was very comfortable.
The house looks exactly like the pictures. It is very clean and as an added bonus, everything in the kitchen was labeled. We had a problem with one of the showers when we arrived and when I called on a Sunday evening, I received an immediate response. Matt, the local go-to guy, offered to have the repair made that night. As it was not an emergency, I said the next day would be fine, and the repair was made by mid-morning Monday.
The house's location is not close enough to walk to the beach, but a short drive takes you to the Lake and restaurants and shops. My children loved the foosball table and I loved the large capacity washer and dryer. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and enjoyed every minute of our vacation.
The only downside is that the house can get very warm on the main floor, as the beautiful floor to ceiling windows have no blinds. We stayed during one of the hottest weeks of the year, so this is probably not an issue most weeks and the house cools down quite a bit at night.
Beautiful Home! Spacious, modern and very clean. Everything was well stocked and thought out. It was close to the bike trails which was important to us as we were riding our bikes around Lake Tahoe. The hot tub was fabulous after our ride. There is a Raley's grocery store just 5 minutes away. Close to the casinos but far enough away to avoid the busy tourist feel. Loved the location! Would highly recommend. My only suggestion to the owner would be to add a blender to the kitchen (it was advertised that there was one and we came supplied to make smoothies).
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We look forward to returning.
This place was fantastic! The pictures online do not even do it justice. Usually pictures only show some the highlights of a rental, but in this case there was so much more to the house than what is shown. First of all, it is absolutely huge! At any given time there were 2-8 of us staying in the house and it accommodated everyone very well. The Master Bedroom was surprisingly enormous! The backyard and deck are huge too and nicely manicured.
The house is also very well appointed and the internet connection was quick (some of us worked quite a bit out there too). The property management and owners were very easy to work with and were extremely responsive. Even the cleaners and neighbors were great!
Not only did the house have everything we could possibly ask for, it was also very conveniently located. We could grab a bite to eat at a restaurant close by and we had access to gas and groceries nearby as well. Getting to the ski resorts was also easy from this location.
This place is definitely a must-stay, and we will definitely do so again!
I was looking for a rental property near ski resorts in South Lake Tahoe. I had never ever been to the area and did not have a clue as where we were going to stay. I decided on this property based on the overall description and pictures, as well as the extremely affordable price. When selecting rentals online, I expect pictures to be a bit nicer than what the actual property looks like. However, with this property, I was blow away to find that the pictures and description didn’t do this property justice, the property is even nicer than the pictures inside and out!
This home is absolutely lovely, beautifully maintained, with top of the line amenities and furnishings. It is perfect for anyone looking for a house for 6 people. It is minutes away from the lake, casinos, Heavenly ski resort, and so many other points of interest in Heavenly Village.
If you are looking for a beautiful, easy to get to, easy to deal with, and affordable vacation rental, I highly encourage you to seriously consider this property... and it has a hot tub! Perfect way to relax at the end of a fun filled day. I hope to rent this property again next winter and would recommend it to anyone heading to South LakeTahoe.
