An Inspirational Experience


A Unique Historic Estate

Lakewold Gardens differs from other properties in the Puget Sound area because we offer comfortable accommodations in an inspirational and relaxing environment. We offer a unique and serene property for meetings, corporate retreats, presentations or to celebrate your social occasion. Amidst the garden sits the historic Wagner House that offers a variety of rooms that can be utilized in many ways – from a small staff retreat in our upstairs boardroom overlooking the gardens, to an evening gala under our wisteria draped verandah – an event held at Lakewold is unlike any other.

We are located on the shores of Gravelly Lake in Lakewood, WA and just minutes from I-5 and downtown Tacoma. Although we are near the hustle and bustle of the city, it feels worlds away.

Please note, our facilities are not available for rental during the month of May, on federally observed holidays, or between December 15 and January 2nd.
