Ruth and Skip are great hosts. There were 7 of us staying with them and our every need was met. The kids loved the bicycles, kayaks, and especially the tree swing. I've been missing the breakfast ever since we left. Ruth bakes the most delicious treats. And let's not forget the chocolate biscotti - a to die for treat kept in a cookie jar tempting you all day long. The recipe is in Skip's cookbook.
The rooms were clean. The beds slept very well. There were plenty of clean towels. I can't think of one thing that I could complain about. We stayed a week this time and I have booked the 7 of us for 2 weeks next year.
