This is our 2nd home that we've decided to make available on a small scale - as such, you will find that Hansel Haven has everything you need for a relaxed and luxurious vacation. Welcome.
Enter through the airlock front door into our inviting great room. The living area has plush carpet and leather seating, a wood burning stove, and a beamed open ceiling. The kitchen is fully appointed with microwave, ceramic glass top stove, the world's quietest dishwasher and all the cooking utensils you could ever need. There is breakfast bar seating for 3 and a massive dinning room table with seating for 12.
The Master suite is on the main level. It has a wonderful Eastern King covered with a down comforter. There is a private bath with dual sinks and shower, walk in closet (contains a roll away bed), satellite TV with DVD, and a private deck overlooking Prosser mountain. The view is stunning!
Also on the main level is the inside laundry room located next to the elavator (yes, the home has an elevator that can be used for a small fee - just ask) and another full bath with tub and shower.
The stairs up take you to the oversize loft. Here you’ll find the game table, library, TV and THEATER. The theater consists a high-definition projector, a drop down 120' screen, and full suround sound. Bring your favorite blu-ray movies and sit back and enjoy after a long day. You'll enjoy sitting on the massive leather sectional (our kids prefer to sleep here versus in beds!). The loft deck has a supreme view of the adjacent Tahoe National Forest with Prosser Hill in the distance.
The stairs down from the main level lead to two additional bedrooms. The “queen room” has the queen bed, a large closet and access to the lower deck. The “bunk room” sleeps four with a double bed, twin bed, and a slide-out trundle under the double. A full bath with shower is adjacent to the lower bedrooms. The lower level can also be accessed through the 3 car garage.
Hansel Haven is also perfectly located. We are on Hansel Ave very near the intersection of Landeau Lane. We back to the open forest with a slight downslope which gives us wonderful views. Only a few steps to the Hansel trail head that connects to the Tahoe Donner hiking trails. Hansel Haven is 1/4 mile from the Trout Creek Recreation Center and the Tahoe Donner Golf course. At the Rec Center, you will find 2 pools, 3 hot tubs, two workout rooms, a sauna and steam room. Adjacent to the Rec Center is the Golf course, driving range, and a wonderful nature trail.
Need more Recreation? Donner Lake is 3 miles away. Prosser, Stampede and Boca Lakes all have fishing and boating as well and are about 4 miles east. In addition to Tahoe Donner’s hiking and biking trails, the entire national forest is at your disposal (maps are in the kitchen). Horseback riding? The equestrian center is 2 miles away. Skiing? Tahoe Donner Downhill and X-country centers are about 2 miles. Depending on traffic you can reach North Star, Squaw, Alpine, Boreal, and Sugar Bowl in about 15 minutes.
Truckee boasts a score of diverse restaurants, many are award winning. In addition, Truckee has many quaint shops where you can spend your time considering local art, fashions and collectibles. A guide on the kitchen counter gives more specific ideas for activities in the area.
So make yourself at home. Hansel Haven is a great place to figure out what you want to do on your Tahoe/Truckee vacation.

About the owner: This is a mother/daughter owned homed (along with our husbands). The mother is a retired school teacher and her husband will soon retire from the same field. The daughter and her husband work at a major computer technology company. We all reside is the Bay Area of California - about 3.5 hours from our wonderful home.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner: We bought this home in this location NOT as a vacation rental property - but as a place where we could create and share fond memories with our direct and extended families. We love the mountains and the surrounding area of Truckee and sure you will as well. Since we cannot be there all the time, we make it available for rent during other times. This is our home first, and a rental second.
