We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Our son was attending the Heartland Hockey Camp three miles away, so Ruttger's was very convenient. The food was excellent at all the restaurants, plus we loved Auntie Em's coffee place. I particular enjoyed the bike rentals - all the bikes were in good shape and there are plenty of safe places to ride. Four minor negatives: 1. The breakfast buffet was quite expensive if you didn't want to eat a lot. Most places offer a two-tiered breakfast buffet, with a lower price for a continental version. 2. The pillows were really bad in our room. when I tried our pillows, I immediately drove to Brainerd, went to Target, and spent $25 on a very nice down pillow, which I used for the whole week. Ruttgers should replace all those lumpy, uncomfortable, fake-foam pillows. It's one of those areas where a little detail like that can make all the difference. 3. Our air-conditioner was vintage 1970s, noisy and not very powerful. 4. The television set was also vintage - a small-screen CRT. Put flat screens with built-in DVD players in every room, please!
