When Men were Men and Mice were Movies Stars…

[Editor’s Note: Because I know soooo many San Francisco residents love to visit Lake Tahoe regularly for any number of great things the Lake Tahoe area has to offer, and because I know you all love yourself a little real estate, I have found a talented writer/Realtor up there to share some insight. This is his first post. Please welcome him.]
Walt Disney slept here! Seriously. When I moved from Orange County to Tahoe, I thought I was leaving my Disneyland connection behind. But right here on the north shore is a little slice of Disney. Called the “Heigh Ho Lodge” because Walt himself was a frequent guest back in the day, this 1.6 acre lakefront estate includes over 280 ft. of south facing sandy beach along with 3 separate houses: a guest house, a caretaker’s house, and a 6 BR main house that sleeps 21. You could fit all 7 dwarves, Snow White, Mickey Mouse, and Walt himself and still have room for 11 more overnight guests!
At a touch under $9 mil, I only need to save $9 million more to afford it. But if you have ever spent any time at Buck’s Beach (a public beach just down the street from the Heigh Ho Lodge) you know why this property is on my short list of dream houses. The north shore enclave of Old Brockway is one of the most beautiful parts of the lake – granite boulder mini-islands dot the crystal clear, turquoise sandy bottomed shallows, beckoning anyone in possession of an inflatable raft and a couple cold Coronas.
Did Walt drink Corona? Maybe not, but I’m sure Mickey did.

    Stunning home …..I’m curious to know who owns it and why it’s back on and off the market. Any ideas?
