We had a great time here. Ruth let us be flexible with schedule, which was crucial (her flexibility allowed us to be ahead of our packed schedule), and she gave us the space we needed on location, while still being easily accessible and quickly responsive to our needs. She also very accurately described the space before we arrived, which was crucial, since we were an out of town crew and unable to scout the spot in person beforehand. Other highlights include plenty of parking around the house, a very quiet location on a quiet road, and plenty of space. Would definitely book again – Ruth was great to work with.
