Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
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.
