We stayed 1 night at Ruthie's. From the first minute in, we did not want to leave. We were greeted with a hug and invited to take off our shoes and introduced to others lounging around on the deck. Ruthie offered some tea and offered to help with dinner reservations. Room was awesome, softest sheets ever! Everything is spotless. Breakfast... More

Felt like going home to your grandmas, big hug welcome from Ruthie when we arrived. We booked via text as international phone only, we wanted to go whale watching in our last night, Ruthie informed us total the company we were staying with her and we'd get 10% discount. Bedrooms clean and comfortable and breakfast freshly cooked. Would definitely stay... More

We very much loved this tucked away "home in the woods" and appreciated the fine treatment we received from the host. The pink room was kinda small and you have to share a bath, but it was well worth it as the price was great, the breakfast was plentiful and delicious and the host was super attentive. Ms. Ruthie gave... More

Ruth is an excellent host for her B&B. We loved the woods, the house, the rooms, the breakfast and her excellent service. Will definitely recommend this to my friends and hope to visit her again in the near future.

We stayed three nights at Ruthie's Roost and it was delicious! Ruth is very kind, interested and caring, giving you a feeling like home! She makes you the best breakfast you've ever eaten and was very talkative and sociable. The house is spacious and equipped with all comforts to relax. We would recommend anyone to stay with Ruth and we... More

Stayed for a weekend with four other women and we had such a great time. Everything was spotless and comfortable and Ruthie herself was delightful..we felt like family! The value here is not only good price but the warm welcome.

In a last minute frenzy to find a lodging for our trip to vancouver Island, I came across to Ruthie Ruth B&B. The first thing that made me stop was its high rating of near 5 stars from nearly 100 reviewers. The pictures of the house looked attractive and the price was very reasonable. Fortunately for us, there was a... More

We stayed at Ruthie's Roost in September with a large group. Honestly, I'm not sure how Ruth kept up with us all. When we first arrived she seemed a little 'short' but then again she is a senior and was getting ready for 21 of us for the weekend so I think I'd be short too! After everyone got settled... More

A few weeks ago, my school friends and I had a school reunion in Mill Bay, our 35th, and wanted to stay nearby. We had found Ruth's B+B through Trip Advisor, and IT WAS FANTASTIC!! We were shown our rooms (after taking shoes off at the door) which were spacious and very comfortable. I don't really know how Ruth does... More

Our 7 women cycling group had the pleasure of spending a night at Ruthie's Roost on our way up the island. Ruthie is very friendly and welcoming....like a family member. Rooms were cozy. Four bedrooms upstairs shared two bathrooms. Everyone was provided with their own towels with lots of facecloths available. A nice sitting area upstairs as well as downstairs... More

“No need. They are all quiet. You can also stay at her recently done barn, which sleeps 6-8 (guessing) and be self-catering.”
