Gardnerville’s establishment began with Lawrence Gilman’s purchase of the Kent House in 1879 when he decided to move the property from its place in Genoa to a new home on seven acres of land near the Carson River. He converted the house into a hotel, a blacksmith shop, and a saloon. Gilman purchased his property from John M. Gardner, inspiring the name for the Gardnerville Hotel and eventually the town of Gardnerville. In 1899, the community became a significant trading hub in the Carson Valley, although it took time for Gardnerville to prosper into what it is today.

Gardnerville is only a few minutes east of Minden, separated by a “Welcome to Gardnerville” sign along the side of U.S. Highway 395. Lake Tahoe is on the opposing side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains west of Gardnerville. Stateline at Lake Tahoe is just a 30-minute drive from the town, providing the Heavenly Shops and the acclaimed Edgewood Tahoe golf course overlooking the shore of Lake Tahoe. Carson City is 30 minutes north of Gardnerville, full of rich Nevada history, like the Nevada State Capitol Building and the exhibits of the Nevada State Museum.
When driving along U.S. Highway 395, you’ll find the road lined with great restaurants unique to the area such as Overland Restaurant & Pub, J T Basque Bar & Dining Room, Cafe Girasole, Julio’s Restaurant, and Topaz Lodge Steak House.
Lampe Park is a 32-acre park divided by Willow Creek and is known as “the crown jewel of the Douglas County Park System.” Lampe Park features a full soccer field, three softball fields, two hardball fields, two volleyball courts, and two tennis courts. The Carson Valley Little League’s older division calls the park their home field. Additionally, the park features a playground, barbecue pits, and picnic areas.
Carson Valley Golf Course is on Riverview Drive off of U.S. Highway 395, minutes from the center of Gardnerville. The 18-hole golf course features a multitude of different golf leagues, a Pro Shop, and a footgolf course. Nextdoor, you can enjoy a meal at the Carson Valley Country Club restaurant. The Carson Valley Swim Center of Minden is a fantastic recreation center for both communities. The center offers swim lessons, water aerobics, plus lifeguard and CPR training. The swim center also features water slides, diving boards, a separate lap pool, a rock-climbing wall, and a fitness center.
The Gardnerville Skatepark is the only park of its kind in the community and is regularly filled with skaters and bikers on the weekends. The park is across Waterloo Lane from Lampe Park as well as across U.S. Highway 395 from the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market’s shopping center. That center also has a Raley’s, Smiths, Pho Chopstix, and Kim’s Donut. Down the street about a mile is a Walmart Supercenter near the Carson Valley Medical Center and Gardnerville Health and Rehabilitation Center.
Students of Gardnerville begin their education at Gardnerville Elementary School before entering Carson Valley Middle School. The middle school was the former site of Douglas High School, as well as the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center before the high school found its home today on Highway 88 in 1975. In 2015, Douglas High finished the construction of a brand new building for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, or STEM program. Gardnerville, Minden, Genoa, Stateline, Zephyr Cove, and Glenbrook are all served by the Douglas County School District.
