Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Reno - The Enchanted Garden

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 or 3

Stay and experience a cozy little cabin/cottage....This is an authentic, reconstructed cabin for two...that will charm your socks off...not to mention the grounds of the Enchanted Garden. This is the sight where Jack Johnson trained for the fight of the century in 1910, against the Great White Hope, Jim Jeffries. Also, the site of the infamous WILLOW'S, one of the first gaming houses in Nevada in 1929. Today, it has been lovingly recreated. During spring and summer, as an english garden, the grounds are ideal for family reunions, wedding's and special events...history buff's, fishermen, boxing fan's and gardening affectionado's!

The tiny little cabin/cottage is located three blocks from the famous Truckee river with miles of hiking and biking trails. Fly fishing and rafting are popular activites found nearby. Small pets only please.

Once upon a time in Reno

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to vacation in Reno with three of our five fur babies. This was our first time in Reno and this place was perfect! The cottage certainly gave the feeling like we were living in a fairytale. Tim and Joan were superb hosts, ensuring we had everything we needed upon arrival. They generously accomodated our three dogs, especially because one of them (our Huksy) is huge! They were attentive when problems arose, and Tim came out to show us the breakers when the power went out (possibly due to the cold winter nights.. which also brought an ice cold shower the first night). We enjoyed sitting by the firepit welcoming the new year, but mostly we were just revived by the beautiful setting and completely peaceful atmosphere. This cabin has a great location to explore the area, but we never even left the cabin in the four days we were there.. it was that awesome! Just a warning to those light sleepers: this cottage is on a semi busy street, so you can hear traffic noise through the night. Our only regret was that we had just missed the snow showers (we wanted it to fall while we were there), but we still got to enjoy the snow. We also loved playing with the resident pooch, Vinny, who was always eager to play with us. So glad we found the Cottage at the Enchanted Garden. My fiancee and kids loved it, especially our Husky who finally got to experience the snow. We will definitely return.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Tim and Joan were fantastic hosts. They eagerly greeted us upon arrival and ensured we have everything we needed to ensure a comfortable stay. They have done a great job with their property and the little cabin was perfect for my husband and I. Their location is excellent, allowing us to be either at a trailhead OR downtown Reno within a 10 minute drive. Added bonus that we were able to bring along our dog during the winter months. Cant wait to return!

Enchanting & adorable!

  • 4 of 5

This little cabin is a work in progress and clearly a labor of love. Its like staying in a storybook cottage in an enchanted forest. And with urban amenities just minutes away, it was perfect. Hosts Tim and Joan were incredibly hospitable, engaging and eager to please. And my little dog and Vinny, the resident pooch made fast friends!

My only criticisms are that it sits on a busy road and traffic noise is a tad annoying at night and the interior has so many decorative items on every surface that its hard to find a place to put your own stuff.

The Hobbit Hole

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the most adorable little cottage you could ever hope to meet. Nestled in an enchanted garden beware you don't squish a faerie on your walk in. It's true that it is close quarters in the sleeping loft and you should know that, but everything else makes up for it. Lovingly crafted and cared for by it's most genial hosts. The location worked out wonderful for us also as it is not in the bustle of the casino area by close enough to do anything you want.

We LOVE this cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! The owners' Joan and Tim are great, warm, and welcoming, providing plenty of information on local history and places to visit. It's located right in Reno (though you would never guess it!), close to downtown/midtown restaurants and 45 minutes to nearby ski resorts, Lake Tahoe, and Pyramid Lake. The gardens outside the cabin are so beautiful and the cabin is such a quaint place filled with the character. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique, cozy experience with easy access to urban entertainment or outdoor recreation!

Reno's perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect little gem hidden in Reno. Incredibly friendly and hospitable owners. Tim and his wife were able to accommodate my last min vacation into Reno and it was quite the surprise. The hand built cottage built on historical grounds has tons of cool nick knacks and has a unique feel to it which made you feel like you were not even in Reno. Although you can just drive 10-15 mins to the Casinos or 30-40 mins to Mt. Rose or Northstar ski resorts. I would advise people that are 6' in height or not very mobile that it might be a bit uncomfortable. Might want to double check with Tim before booking. Thanks Tim for everything!
