11015 Bolzano Lo Res-1

11015 Bolzano, Tahoe Donner

If you are a sun lover like I am, you will love this home.  This property is south facing and both front decks are drenched in sun.  As well, the builder was very thoughtful with the window placement.  There are lots of windows.  This home sits on a lovely, level lot that backs to greenbelt for extra privacy.  It’s also located in the lower section of Tahoe Donner so less snow and easily accessible.

The great room is warm and inviting with vaulted wood ceilings, woodstove on slate rock hearth, wood floors in the kitchen and wonderful light throughout.  This split level design features the master suite on the upper level with the two guest bedrooms and full bath downstairs. Additional features include log accents inside and out, private rear deck which looks out to the greenbelt, deep garage and lots of good storage.

 Owning in Tahoe Donner allows you to enjoy all the amenities.  From downhill skiing, the tennis courts and pools, to the workout facility and private beach at Donner Lake there is a lot to do.  If you would like more information about this property please contact me.  I will be having an open house on February 21st in the afternoon.  Stop on by!

Tahoe Rim Trail: Hike it all at once   Leave a comment


By Tim Hauserman

The Tahoe Rim Trail is a 170 mile trail that circles Lake Tahoe. It passes mountain lakes, crosses high alpine passes, and runs for miles through deep forests of red fir, hemlock and majestic white pine…but most importantly, it gives you miles and miles of opportunities to gaze down into our favorite big patch of blue.

The trail is divided into eight sections of between 15 and 32 miles. These bite sized chunks give TRT hikers and mountain bikers, regardless of their physical condition, a chance to enjoy the trail. But have you ever thought of becoming one of the few who have thru-hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail? Here’s a few reasons why you should:

-The trail circles the entire lake. Which means that if you hike it all you can start out in one place and about two weeks later end up right where you began. What is especially cool about this is that for much of the journey you can gaze across the lake at where you have been, while also envisioning where you will soon be.
-If you join one of the annual thru-hikes put on by the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, someone else will handle much of the logistics and provide you with food and water at key points. You will also have a group of companions that are sure to become great friends, and you will be supporting the TRTA in it’s mission to maintain the Tahoe Rim Trail. For information go to
-Make no mistake about it. Thru-hiking the TRT is not easy. It’s a tough, bucket list challenge…but it is one that normal humans who hike about 13 miles a day can do in two weeks, as opposed to hiking twenty grueling miles every day for four and half straight months to conquer the Pacific Crest Trail.
-When you finish, you will have the pride of becoming one of the heralded members of the Tahoe Rim Trail 165 mile Club, and obtain a number. Mine is #11.

Need more information? Pick up a copy of my official guidebook to the Tahoe Rim Trail, now in it’s 3rd edition. Its’ available at local bookstores and outdoor shops.
