This place really is a magical place to unwind and just enjoy the company you have or to be alone. It’s not too far from Gainesville which is nice but it’s also secluded enough for some to unplug for some time. Ruth is also a very reliable very cool person and I’m very grateful f…

This was our fourth stay at Ruth's Cottage. So, we knew what to expect. It is most definitely a favorite place for us to stay in Hawthorne. We love the kitchen, and the open space, windows, and the lovely property. This time we were pleasantly surprised with a new shower head (…

The home is perfect for a quiet and relaxing getaway. My dog loved that he could actually run around, since we have no gated area for him now. The hammock was perfect for late nights reading. Ruth was also very responsive with communication. I'd definitely stay there again

Not that it's the greatest store ever... but there is a Hitchcock's Foodway supermarket five minutes from the house. Interlochen, 15 minutes up the road has several major supermarkets as well. There are farmers markets Friday and Saturday in Melrose about 10 minutes away. If you are looking for organic groceries or vast variety, Gainesville is definitely worth the the drive.
