We had a quick stay with Ruthann, but everything was exceptional, especially the mountain views and the world famous steam shower.
We had a wonderful stay with Ruthann. Her house and view are simply gorgeous. We just loved sitting out on the back porch and taking in the scenery. The room was great and the breakfasts were very nice also. We also enjoyed talking with Ruthann. The only thing I'd suggest is that if you like softer/feather pillows like I do, you should bring one along as her pillows are kind of fat and hard. We hope to stay with Ruthann again in the future.
We had a wonderful time staying at Parker Mountain House with Ruthann - she is an absolutely gracious host. We were out and about for the majority of the weekend, but completely enjoyed every moment at the house! An immaculate and beautiful property (inside and out) with lovely space to sit outdoors and sip coffee. A wonderfully comfortable bed, amazing spa like bathroom, delicious coffee and muffins!
Ruthann's daughter even joined my boyfriend in a Sunday morning jam! She was on fiddle, he played guitar. What fun! Truly an experience that you will only find through Air BnB. We would absolutely come back to stay with Ruthann again.
Parker Mountain is only 10 minutes from skyline drive. Set amid stunning scenery and great views from the house and the bedroom. Very comfortable bed. Steam shower and soaking tub were great perks. The breakfast was delicious. Best of all Ruthann is a great hostess, interesting to talk with.
My husband, our baby and I spent a long weekend with Ruthann at her Parker mountain house. It was truly a spectacular weekend. Ruthann was the best host and was so warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived until she sent us on road with her famous delicious muffins! The home is so beautiful situated on several acres of nature- grazing cows, sound of the creek, magical fireflies in the night! All this with a stunning view of the Parker mountains.
This is a great place for anyone looking to get away from the fast paced city life or just to visit the area for its vineyards which Ruthann has a lot of recommendations for!
Nothing but great things to say for this property and the host and we will certainly be back in the fall to spend time with Ruthann and see this place turn into heaven!
My husband and I booked this listing with Ruthann for our 3rd wedding Anniversary trip. Ruthann was so gracious and helpful! The room is beautiful, and the view from the back porch is breathtaking! If you are considering a visit here, we definitely recommend it!
We had a wonderful time staying at Parker Mountain House. The bed is very comfortable, the steam shower is amazing, the views are gorgeous, and Ruthann is extremely helpful and a great chef :) We will be back.
About the Host, Ruthann
I love living on the outskirts of Charlottesville , allowing quick and easy access to the city while having the quiet and privacy of country living. Meeting new people on their own adventures is great fun for me. This is how I traveled in my younger days and most memories are laden with the people I've met along the way. And so I'm available to chat or to give you your space, either way works for me.
