Most apartments in Gardner are clustered near the city center just south of Crystal Lake-West. The neighborhoods further into the outskirts of town are dominated by homeowners, so renters shouldn’t even bother scouring these ‘hoods for a humble abode of their own.

Several landlords in the city are welcoming of furry four-legged roommates, but they also tend to charge a bit more ($25 or so) for pet-friendly rentals. Also, apartment managers usually demand an upfront security deposit/cleaning fee from new tenants. Of course, it can’t hurt to haggle, so bring your best negotiating skills to the table, as leases in Gardner are hardly set in stone.

Most apartment complexes, townhouses, and rental homes in Gardner are on the older side, but they also tend to serve up some of the best amenities you’ll find anywhere in the Bay State. Whether you’re in need a furnished interior, modern appliances, in-unit washer/dryer room, gym, clubhouse, covered parking space, or apartment that offers free Wi-Fi and some utilities included, you’ll find a plethora of options in Gardner. Also, waiting lists are pretty much unheard of, and apartments almost always have vacancies, so do your homework and don’t jump into an apartment in Gardner until you’re sure it’s perfect for you.

Gardner is a quiet little city inhabited mostly by married couples, families with kids, and French Canadian senior citizens. If you’re looking for a bright lights/big city ambiance, you’ll feel out of place. If, au contraire, you want to escape the hustle and bustle of a place like Boston (about an hour’s drive to the east), you’ll soon be falling in love with the city’s idyllic atmosphere.

Quick question: Do you like chairs? Um … of course you do! Fortunately for you, Gardner, aka “The Furniture Capital of New England” or “Chair City,” is home to a number of furniture manufacturers that offer interesting tours. The city also has its own community college, state park, golf course, and plenty of historic sites, open spaces, shopping hotspots, and eateries.

There’s no such thing as a “bad” part of town, exactly, but some areas have a more run-down look and feel to them. Just be sure to visit the city and its neighborhoods in advance to see which is best for you before signing a lease. After all, one person’s idea of “run down” is another person’s idea of “has character.”

And now for our favorite part: using the power of the ‘webs to score you the perfect apartment in Gardner, Massachusetts! Best of luck and happy hunting!
