Wirklich ein wunderbarer Platz um Urlaub zu machen. Etwas abgelegen, dafür extrem ruhig und entspannend. Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht. Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an sehr wohl hier gefühlt. Ruthie haben wir einmal kurz getroffen und fanden sie sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Wir können diesen Ort und diese Airbnb Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank!
Although we did not meet the host, we felt comfortable in the house: clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. We would gladly return.
Ruthie was a great host, she provided us with excellent local food and beach recommendations. The farmhouse did not disappoint, very clean and tasteful. Our only reservation is that we didn't book it for another night! Will definitely look to return and certainly recommend to anyone looking to get away in Maine.
Spectacular and wonderful!!
My stay at this beautiful Farmhouse was very enjoyable. The house and area are super quiet!! The room I had was so cozy, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I slept very good.
Ruthie & Jared are the most welcoming and friendly hosts one can meet. It felt as if we have known before, communication was very easy & pleasant.
We really had a marvelous stay with Ruthie and her family. We connected easily with them and had great conversations. They are open-minded and good hosts in any event. The surrounding was very beautiful, safe and quite. Our room was spacious, clean and cozy. We would definitely return to Ruthie and her family at the next time. Thank you very much Ruthie for a great experience!
Ruthie and Jared (and of course, Gabe) are a lovely family. They made our stay comfortable and without hassle. Ruthie was very attentive to our needs, and gave us great advice. The place is big and welcoming, and for only five minutes' driving, we are at a gorgeous beach. If you are looking for a pastoral getaway, Ruthie's is a neat choice.

About the Host, Ruthie
I love to create spaces for people to enjoy themselves. I enjoy sharing stories, making cups of tea and being warm. I keep busy by chasing around my two little boys, working on our home and being with friends.
