Maybe it's the sleek geometric lines, the blend of natural textures, the open layout, the amazing views, or the high end amenities, but The Gardner Retreat is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. It's got everything you need for a great getaway: location, amenities, and plenty of space for your family and friends. But, let's face it. This house is special because of the way it makes you feel: a little bit richer, more stylish, and sexier than ever. And that's worth every penny.

Perfect fit

The Cabin was perfect for our family gathering. The home was very roomy with plenty of room to walk around in the Kitchen. Nice back yard view, plus a open trial to hike outdoors. Perfect get away home for the family.

Beautiful home!

Great location. Easy to find. Very spacious. All beds were very comfortable including the bunk bed. Kitchen had everything as far as utensils, appliances, glasses, etc. such a wonderful experience. Great memories created. This home doesn't have A/C, this is the only reason I would rate it less then a 5 star. Kate from InvitedHomes told me about the A/C before hand but I really think this house needs it, at least when we were there. They do have fans though. Overall great place! We would stay here again.

This house was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay there.

We really didn't care for the living room sofas that were uncomfortable for us taller people since it sits low and the backs keep falling off the sofas easily. Other than that the house was super!! Many thanks!!

Lake Tahoe's Apres-Ski Scene by Personality
February 17, 2017 Living and vacationing in Tahoe requires a lot of physical exertion.
