About Larry and Amie Borgstrom

We live in the Bay Area. We love to use our vacation rental in Truckee and we love to share it with others. It is a beautiful place to go year round.

Larry and Amie Borgstrom purchased this house in 2004

Why Larry and Amie Borgstrom chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We chose to buy in Tahoe Donner for all the family amenities and its close location to Lake Tahoe and surrounding ski resorts. We use the home year round.

What makes this house unique

We use the Trout Creek Recreation facility (which is located 5 minutes from our home) for pools, sauna, spa, weight room, yoga, driving range, basketball, playground, and sledding. We use the Tahoe Donner ski hill and cross country ski trails. We hike and mountain bike the Tahoe Donner trails. We visit the equestrian center. We frequent The Lodge restaurant and golf course. A 30 minute drive away, we visit beautiful Lake Tahoe and its surrounding beaches, trails, lakes and tourist attractions. We use all the surrounding ski areas - Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw Valley, Boreal, and Homewood. We also love the historic town of Truckee and visit the ice rink, skate park, regional park, restaurants and shops.

Beautiful Large Home- Private Wooded Setting,HotTub,& Tahoe Donner Club Access
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Wonderful home, toasty hot tub and amazing snow.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. This home worked out perfectly for our family with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed. The separate TV room was a hit and the hot tub topped it all off. The neighborhood was very quiet and just a quick drive to downtown Truckee. We are all very happy with our experience. Many thanks.

Good Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Hansel House is great for large families - we had, at times, 19 people - lots of kids - and there were plenty of bed and bath rooms. The only knock would be the kitchen - a little light on large pots and pans when cooking for a large group. Also, the oven needed to be cleaned. Overall, however, we had a great time.

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

The house is great for large families or groups. We were in Truckee for the Tough Mudder weekend and we had our extending family joining us. The house is in a great location, near town, but far enough away for peace and quiet. We enjoyed drinks on the back deck and family style dinners in the large dining room. The only shortfall of the house is a shortage of pans - we have chefs in the family and we cook a lot - it would not be an issue with most folks. I will rent this property again if it is available for our next trip to the Sierras.

Comfortable and inviting

  • 5 of 5

Love our stay, had our dogs with us and enjoyed the snow. Lots of space for larger groups or families. The mud rooms next to the garage was great. Lots of rooms for kids to play in. Close to downtown Truckee and north lake tahoe ski resorts. Would definitely recommend and will use again.

Nice Place! Close to Tahoe-Donner ski area

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Stayed there with a couple of families with kids. Has a mud room at the entry way to put all your boots, jackets, etc. Empty lot next to house is nice area for kids to play snow, sled, etc. Tahoe Donner ski area is a 5 minute drive away so you can ski in morning, come home for lunch and ski in the afternoon. Wifi speed was good too. Plenty of parking for 4-5 cars in the driveway and garage.
