About Tina Tankka

Our family has been enjoying Tahoe, now, for many years, always amazed at the magical feeling it delivers. We look forward to all its seasonal changes, the salmon run in the fall, the skiing in the winter, the water falls in the spring, the lakeside activities in the summer. Each time we ascend the mountain, we never tire of that magical feeling as the city falls behind and you enter into the big country.

Tina Tankka purchased this house in 2012

Why Tina Tankka chose Truckee

Having looked for many years and wishing a small piece of Tahoe to be ours, we very luckily stumbled upon Hansel Cabin. Newly remodeled and decorated with vacationers in mind who want to call a place a home, we would like to share with you a piece of Sierra paradise.

What makes this house unique

Modern amenities grace our cabin and Tahoe Donner, while Old Town Truckee whisks you back into the time when westward parties forged their mountain settlements. Relax in Tahoe Donner's spa, swimming pools and private Donner Lake beach or play hard and embrace the renegade in you.

Perfect house for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and it was the perfect sized house for our family of 6. The kids loved the bunk room and the games. We all loved hanging out in the very comfortable living room, and cooking meals together in the spacious kitchen. The house had every amenity we needed for our stay, and all of the beds were comfortable!

We hope to make this house a regular stay for ourselves!

Only snow could have made our stay better

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home with a great location. You’re close enough to town but still have the feeling of privacy because there are no homes behind you. Our in-laws were with us and the master suite downstairs was perfect for them.

We had a few hiccups that Tina promptly took care of. The only thing that would have made our Christmas stay better would have been snow.... maybe next year :)

Nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tina's home. It was perfect for two families and if we didn't have a conflict, would have asked to extend our stay. The house was nicely decorated, very clean, well furnished and in a great location. Tina was super responsive and very accommodating.

Beautiful, quiet, classy

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Quiet, very clean, away from it all but close to town. I wish we could have stayed longer. Easy check in and check out with clear instructions. I felt very pampered!

Perfect Home for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home worked out perfectly for our weekend company trip up to Tahoe. The house was clean and the location was perfect. The owner is very professional and organized and setting up our reservation was a total breeze. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in the area.

Perfect vacation home - kids love it

  • 5 of 5

This house is updated with modern amenities and tastefully decorated. It looks even better than in the photos! My kids loved the bunk beds. They each took one set and didn't have to fight who gets the top. We enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace and reading a book - Tina has a lot of good books!

The location is very convenient - less than 10 minutes drive after we got off high way 80. It is centrally located with short drive to Squaw and Northstar. There is a big open space in the back of the house and kids had a great time playing with snow and sledding. We didn't have to go to the paid snow play area nearby.

The owner Tina was very easy to work with and very accommodating. She was always accessible by phone when we had questions about the house. We're already planning our next visit. Thanks Tina for sharing your beautiful home!

Royal Gorge, next to Sugar Bowl, offers the largest cross country ski trails in America. For the little kids snow play or sledding is a walk away.

If casinos are your fancy, Reno and the Nevada gambling hot spots are but 45 minutes away. Kids will love coming in the fall for the annual Kokanee Salmon Run at Taylor Creek. Watch the salmon swim upstream back to their birthing grounds, where on peak days streams will be thick with spawning Kokanee. Come back, after a days activities, to the park like retreat of Tahoe Donner. It's Yosemite without the crowds
