About Bauback Safa

We are the Ruskins/Safas, a large family on both coasts with 8 children and 11 grandchildren, so we enjoy the mountains a lot year round. The home is rented for stays up to 2 weeks when not being used by family. We hope you will enjoy and care for our house as much as we do.

Bauback Safa purchased this house in 2005

Why Bauback Safa chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We chose Tahoe Donner because of its proximity to several ski areas, Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. Our location near the rec center is important in that we can walk to it. The large tennis center and golf course are nearby and we are avid about both. The private beach at Donner Lake is great for swimming, water play and has a boat launch and rental boats of various type.

Very clean, spacious, and modern home!! Perfect stay for a family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a very pleasant stay and great time at this home. Was very spacious and clean to accommodate two families. Our kids had a fun time playing outside in the snow where it was very open and had a beautiful scenery. Great entertainment system. Kids loved the movies that was provided through amazon prime. Had a spacious kitchen with updated appliances which allowed us to make cooking meals easier. Very easy and smooth communication with the owner for any questions or concerns that we had prior to and during our stay. Plan on booking this home again on our next stay.

Great Location

The owner was responsive to our inquires. The home was lovely and spacious. There was enough room for the kids and adults to be in the upstairs kitchen and living space. We will definitely come back again.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I am so grateful that we found this cabin. It was so comfortable and roomy enough for our family trip. I was able to prepare each meal ( Including an early Thanksgiving Dinner) and had plenty of room and counter space to do so. The kitchen was almost completely stocked with everything that we needed for prep and the only thing we had to provide were the serving platters. The oven is a bit tricky and made me say a few choice colorful words a couple of times, but once I got the hang of it, all went smoothly. They were missing a knife sharpener for their knife set, so I left mine there for the next visitor :)

The bathrooms were fully stocked with toiletries, shampoo, body wash and towels and we were able to wash the towels as needed during the stay.

Let me just tell you how wonderful it is to sit in the hot tub with snow all around you!

The beds were very comfortable and aside from a few spiders who wanted to snuggle with us , which is expected as you're in the forest, it couldn't have been better.

There are portable cribs, safety gates and a high chair for the little ones which was GREAT and extremely convenient!

Snow shovels in the winter might be a good idea though as we had to dig ourselves out of the driveway, but it gave us time for a snowball fight. So can't complain.

The upper level having the majority of the accommodations and the master room was a life saver as we had parents in walkers that were able to have a comfortable stay because they could stay on the same level the whole visit. Getting them up the stairs was a little more difficult and so once they went up, they stayed upstairs for the remainder of the visit.

All in all, this place was amazing. Beautiful. Comfortable. And it felt like home while we were there. This is the perfect cabin for any family. You'll love it and I can't thank this family enough for sharing it with us.
