All you need
A great place to relax or enjoy the surrounding area and the local amenities. The spa bathroom is even better than the pictures. A great place to relax for the gals and there is a large TV for the guys.
You approach the front door through a small garden which entices a person to take some time and reflect on the day.
The spacious back yard is full of treasures of all kinds.
A get away property to return to again and again.
40th Birthday weekend away
This property is just as advertised or even better. Ruth has done a wonderful job making this rental feel like home. I will definitely be back!
Wonderful guests I look forward to having them return.
A delightful and welcoming home
We were two adults and one dog staying for six nights. We really enjoyed our stay here. This home is cozy yet has a light and airy decor. It was extremely clean, with a nice-sized, modern kitchen and a luxurious bathroom, complete with steam shower and soaker tub. There is a giant tv to enjoy watching Netflix, or a DVD player if you like to bring movies, they also have a selection of DVDs to choose from - I don’t think there is cable service, but not sure since we didn’t try to watch regular tv. Wifi connection was good and strong for our devices. There is a very nice private backyard that also has small deck off the back patio doors which is conveniently covered so we could still sit outside even if it was raining.
Info for travelers with a dog: we felt like our dog was very welcome here. The backyard is securely fenced and is a decent size with about half of it being a grassy area. There is also a doggy door you can optionally use for convenient access to the backyard for small/med dogs. They also conveniently provided dog-friendly paw wipes, poop bags and a water bowel, and for little dogs, a cute doggy chair in the living room.
We're glad to have found this place, and would be happy to return next time we're in the area.
The house is very clean and unique. The owner put a lot of energy into this house and we are pleased to be there. The bathrooms is little small for two bedroom settings. Overall, we had very good stay. Thanks
Joy and her group were very respectful of our home and we appreciate her feedback.
Our two bedroom home is designed with a half bath off the Master bedroom and a full bathroom with 4x5 walk in shower and large soaker tub.
We arrived to inviting spa music and a beautiful home. The gardens were amazing . Thoughtfully stocked with everything you could think of , including items for our pet. The location was convenient for exploring the area . Only downside is the busy road out front We would definitely stay again
What a lovely couple, It was was nice to hear they enjoyed there walks with there little dog, on our near by trails. We look forward to there return.
Our stay at Jim and Ruth's bnb was excellent. It was very welcoming with a relaxing ambience. The location is quiet and it is beautifully landscaped with attention to detail. Inside is also clean and quiet with modern decor as well as a fresh coziness; we found everything we needed to make ourselves feel at home. The beds were also very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again :)
I was pleased to meet Kim and her family when they arrived. Communication with Kim was very open and by the time they arrived I was completely relaxed and confident they would be wonderful guests! I was not disappointed! (5* guests !! All around.)
I look forward to their next visit.
