I pride myself on being a sweet, accomodating and attentive hostess...or simply in the quiet background if you prefer.
Ruth & James were wonderful! I was in the area for parents weekend at Susquehanna University. It was a wonderful drive to and from the University. Ruth & James were quite accommodating - I did not arrive in until after 10:30 both nights of my stay and they were to greet me! Their home is beautiful – this was my first time using Airbnb so I’ll admit, I was a little nervous, but I can’t wait to do it again! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to enjoy the deck out back…was hoping I would have had the time considering there is so much less light pollution in New Berlin than there is in King of Prussia! :)
Good and timely communications with Ruth. Her home is clean and very attractively appointed. I felt welcomed and comfortable. The hot tub was an added bonus after a long drive.
Within 5 minutes of my arrival, Ruth felt like an old friend. She is warm and welcoming...and an excellent baker. The bedroom was very comfortable.
Spent an [all too brief!] night in Ruth's home and company--a way point on a recent trip. That stay can be described-all too inadequately-as a step back in Americana to a simpler and more elegant time. Ruth's home is a wondrous American tapestry of elegance, both in its' architecture and its' appointments. And to her role as hostess Ruth offers a delicious charm and unending attention to comforts. I would wish to return to Ruth's home again simply for the enjoyment of spending time there.
My stay here was wonderful: first, there is the hostess Ruth Mythinger, charming, funny, friendly, and generous almost to a fault. She has deep roots in the area and it is worth the time to hear a story or two and get the local scoop on the best and most scenic attractions in this, one of the more beautiful states in the States. The accomodations themselves are first-rate – my room was comfortable, well lit (in case I wanted to read which is always the case), and clean. The house itself is, as advertised, a beautiful Victorian, set in a lovely grassy lot with a spacious deck to enjoy the fresh air. It would be remiss of me not to mention the great beauty of the surrounding area: from New Berlin one can head north, south, east, or west and find much worth doing and seeing in the bucolic surroundings of central Pennsylvania.
Thanks Ruth!!! I loved staying with Ruth, I felt at home. Her house is warm, clean, safe and inviting. I wish I had stayed longer. The best overnight travel experience. I will be back!!!
Ruth's hospitality and accommodations exceeded my expectations. Daily breakfast and coffee were great and the vibe was relaxed and welcoming. I highly recommend staying in her home.
Ruth est une hôtesse exemplaire qui a été très attentive et paciente (nous avons un niveau d'anglais très juste) durant notre séjour. Séjour extraordinaire chez Ruth, nous aurions aimer rester toute une semaine ! Superbe maison, j'ai adoré le Jacuzzi, le chat et le chien ont été adorable ! Le petit déjeuné était merveilleux on s'est régalés ! De très bon conseils pour visiter autour de New Berlin. Que dire à part... réservez !
Ruth's home was lovely and her breakfasts divine. She was the perfect host - gave us info about the area, shared a self-guided driving tour of the county which was great, and made us so, so comfortable and welcome in her home. I'm just sad we didn't have time to try the hot tub!
We very much enjoyed Ruth! She was so pleasant and easy to talk to. We felt comfortable having her in our home, and would love to have her and her companion visit us again. It would also be delightful to visit her B&B in Pennsylvania! Lovely lady!
Ruth and James were excellent guests. Unfortunately, I was not here to meet them personally but the entire experience of working with Ruth has been fantastic. I was disappointed when I had to go out of town as I really looked forward to getting to know them. They left my home in excellent condition and I would love for them to come back and visit sometime. I can highly recommend them to anyone who is lucky enough to host them.
Ruth is extremely pleasant and enthusiastic. It was a pleasure having her and her friends as guests.
Ruth is truly a delightful guest! We are so glad they Chose the Empire House for her birthday weekend getaway. Good communication, she kept us posted on her arrival time. Everything was left spotless and in order. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Interesting, well traveled, and curious I have travelled with Ruth and find her to be great company.
