Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: A brother and sister team with their spouses decided it was a great idea to have a place to have fun in all seasons and Twain Harte was it. The area is loaded with everything you could possibly want to do all within a short drive from lake activities, fishing to snow activities. There is so much history in the area that is a great place to bring the family, relax, have fun and explore when you need a break from our hectic paced life and Twain Harte answered that need.

Why the Owner Chose Twain Harte:
When looking for a house in Twain Harte, we wanted a place that was large enough to host our huge family and with land we could develop into the perfect place to hang out. Tanager house is a place we can grow into and create a vacation retreat for those times when we really need it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The great thing about Tanager house is that its open architecture is interesting and leads to wonderful gatherings from its ability to comfortably host a lot of people and entertain them as well to its amazing solitude and mountain views.
