Interaction with Guests
I would be there when you arrive and when you leave. I also have a bedroom of my own I will be using.
Living on the escarpment is very quiet and it's great to listen to the birds and the wind in the trees. It is rare to hear any traffic as it is a very small street and not used except by the residents living on it. A 10 minute walk down the hill will bring you right downtown and all the amenities you can imagine.
This is a non smoking household, so please smoke outside if you so desire. Use of the kitchen is permitted and is equipped with microwave, toaster oven, fridge and gas stove, we also have a propane bbq for your use. A room key will be provided to secure your valuables. Many maps and access to tours are at your disposal. We have a small very friendly poodle that does not shed.
We had a nice time at Ruta's. We enjoyed the hot tub during the day and had a bon fire at night. The house was in a good location in Owen Sound very close to the trail entrance and downtown. Ruta greeted us upon arrival, was very friendly and made us some breakfast the next day. The house was full of art and her dog was super cute. The bed in the room was small for two people. It's either a single or a very small double. Good for a single person or small adults who like to snuggle.
Ruta was a wonderful host who knew the area very well and gave us many ideas of what to do on our visit. Her house was in a great location and only a short walk down into owensound. Also very close to multiple waterfalls that had beautiful trails. Overall a great experience and place to stay!
The host is friendly and helpful. This is a unique home, filled with art and knickknacks.
I am a fun loving, energetic individual. My friends always say I am the hostess with the mostess as I accommodate their wishes and always keep things lively. If you are looking for a quiet escape or something a little bit different I aim to please.. Let me know what your favourite foods are and perhaps I can prepare one of my many special dishes for your meal.
