Small but really cute

  • 4 of 5

Great stay. Hosts were wonderful. Adorable little cottage. I'm 6'2" and my head hit the ceiling in the shower. Not for anyone really tall. It is right next to the road, but the noise was not even noticeable. We had fun looking at all of the wonderful antiques in the suite. Thank you for a great weekend!

A cabin built with the joy of the craftsman

  • 4 of 5

Tim and Joanie are wonderful hosts. The Enchanted Garden property is whimsical and full of sweet delights. We were in town for a wedding and were grateful to have a cozy home base. I can only imagine what it would be like in warmer weather to take advantage of being in the garden. As another reviewer noted, you are situated on a thoroughfare so if you are sensitive to road noise, use earplugs or a white noise machine. As my husband is tall (6'1") he needed to sleep on an angle in the bed so slept in the loft and I slept downstairs. The beds are very comfortable! Raley's Market is very close for any provisions.

Quiet cabin minutes away from the river and downtown!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend came to Reno to experience the beautiful outdoors of the surrounding area, but when we got to Tim and Joan's enchanted garden, it was hard to leave the city! The cabin was hand-built by Tim with predominantly recycled materials, and houses an incredible antique collection that really adds to the rustic feel. With hiking trails along the river only minutes away, and downtown (for those visiting for the night life) so close, it felt like we were in the heart of the city, while still having the quiet small-town vibe of cities like Bend or Ashland. Other reviewers have written about Tim and Joan's hospitality, and for good reason. They are some of the sweetest folks I've met in a long time, full of good recommendations and pieces of the regions history. All in all we loved our stay and are planning on coming back soon!

Simply enchanting stay!

  • 5 of 5

Tim and Joan were the ultimate hosts. We loved every minute of our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. When you walk through the garden gates, you enter into another world... a truly enchanted world. It was a winter wonderland! I hope I can return to experience every other season on this enchanted property. Thank you so much, Tim and Joan!
