About The Owner

Our custom built Tahoe Donner home was completed in 2002 and has proven to be a blessing for us, our children, grandchildren & friends! We savor our peace and quiet, but enjoy participating in the variety of year-round activities available in the immediate area. We want you to live the comfort, excitement and joy we've experienced over the years in our home away from home. Our belief is that once you've spent time at Hansel Mountain Home, you will want to return.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe is as good as it gets for outdoor family fun with all the mountain and lake activities – spring, summer, fall and winter! Tahoe Donner is centrally located, easy to get to, and, having a great time is a given! Yes, Tahoe Donner is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true!

What makes this house unique

The moment this custom built home was completed and furnished I knew we had created the relaxed atmosphere we had hoped for and felt our home would provide a great place to decompress. We have a hard time leaving every time we spend time in this fantastic house! In the Spring, Summer and Fall we love sitting on the deck looking at the beautiful pines and taking in the fresh mountain air! Our place is in a mountain wonderland and is only a few minutes from swimming/water sports, golf, tennis, shopping, a local wine bar and/or fine dining. In the Winter we love the ease and convenience of a short 20 minute drive to any of the five large ski resorts.
