I had a very enjoyable stay with Ruth, Ruth's house is a lovely old red brick home beautifully presented and in an ideal location - only minutes walk from the centre of St Arnaud. Ruth and I enjoyed a nice evening together discussing a broad range of subjects. On Ruth's recommendation I had tea at the Royal Hotel it was really good. I plan to stay again with Ruth.

Ruth's place is such a lovely home located opposite the Botanical gardens and a block away from the Main Street to explore. Ruth is such a lovely lady who will assist you in whatever way is can to make your stay enjoyable.

Ruth is an affable host. We felt relaxed and comfortable in her home. She is actively involved in the town; happily shared her knowledge of St Arnaud and her life there. After a good nights sleep, we strolled through the Botanical Gardens opposite. Ruth prepared a delicious continental breakfast including her home made preserves. We look forward to returning soon and would highly recommend Ruth's Airbnb.

Ruth's historic house was so interesting and a lovely place to stay, right opposite a park and a short walk to the Main Street. Breakfast was exceptional and a real treat too. I would recommend staying with Ruth in St Artaud any time for sure.

Ruth is an exceptional host and is indeed caring and genuine in her approach. We would recommend Ruth's accommodation unhesitatingly as home away from home . An exceptional rural Victorian experience indeed . Ruth has a touch of class that was warmly received by us gratefully. Thank you Ruth for your delicious baking and the morning breakfast was nourishing and wholesome.

Thank you for another fantastic stay. It even surpassed our last visit. The facilities are clean, private and well appointed and the host is delightful! We have many wonderful memories of St Arnaud and the district from our stay.

We really enjoyed our overnight stay with Ruth. She is an excellent host, made us feel very welcome, prepared a good breakfast, talked and shared experiences with us. Her home offers a real old Australian experience. The bedroom we had is spacious with a very comfortable bed. Ruth's home is close to all ammenities and opposite the Botanical Gardens in a quite Street. The off street parking is excellent. For those in search of an authentic Australian rural experience we definitely recommend a stay with Ruth.
