The power is on @ the most unique house in Tally. Lakeview, woods, abundant nature and privacy, all in a spacious, light, art and music filled artist's home. Close to the airport, I-10, restaurants, shopping, art and culture, stadium, parks, and city center. You’ll love my place because of the serenity, beauty, views, gardens, and amenities. Great for couples, friends, small - med groups. It has many levels & open spaces, so adults only. Please know that there is mature themed art in home.

The space

This home is beyond words... truly a beautiful and unique experience. There are up to 3 bedrooms available, all on second story-- One queen, one full, and two twins. Light pours in through cupola and huge windows, and beautiful figural and abstract art and views abound. Decks, screen porches, ping pong, hammock, hot tub...

Guest access

Guests have access to entire house except for owner's private quarters.

Interaction with guests

I am always available by phone/text if I am not in town.

Other things to note

Because the house is on a hilltop, the driveway is sloped. There are two fairly level parking spaces available at the top. Please know that there are stairs and multi-levels throughout. This is a unique home, not a sterile hotel experience. Expect to find evidence of art and life in progress. Please bring curiosity, open hearts, and positive attitudes.

Ruth home was an oasis! You are transported away from you what you think Tallahassee is to this lake side forrest retreat. The home is within close proximity to everything. She is extremely responsive and courteous and we enjoyed exploring her home and relaxing in the hot tub. It is the perfect listing for families or groups of friends looking for a getaway.

We would stay here again. Ruth has a very nice quiet home nestled in the hills over looking a large lake. She has a good balance between modern amenities, like on demand hot water for coffee or tea, WiFi, Jacuzzi, and Netflix, but also simple things that make the house a home creating a warm feeling not found in a sterile hotel, like old wood floors, fresh flowers, unique art, antique furniture, and a gas cook top.

Our gang of travelling librarians needed a place to stay for two nights while we attended a wedding, and this beautiful purple paradise was honestly more than we ever expected. It's beautifully decorated, so you could just spend a whole trip checking out the neat things on the walls and shelves, the neighborhood is beautiful, and it's convenient to many stores and restaurants. Ruth made her home exceptionally comfortable for us (she even laid out breakfast!) and was in constant contact. Downsides? Hmmm, the driveway is on a big old hill, and the house has stairs everywhere - no problem for us, but I wouldn't being my godmother who has mobility issues. Otherwise nothing that we encountered. We had a wonderful stay, and this is a really cool house.

Response from Ruth:
Thank you for the stellar review, Elizabeth. Yes, the house is on a hill and has multi-levels. These factors make the design very unique and create a beautiful view of the lake. It's definitely not the best choice for the mobility impaired or small children (although I did raise a family there and managed several months with my foot in a cast) -- but hopefully the descriptions on my listing are clear about this so no one is surprised :) I hope you and your friends will visit again!

Ruth has a beautiful home and it is described exactly the way it is. A little bit rural great view and quiet neighborhood. The Lake View from the front patio is lovely. There was a chill in the air and hot coffee. My sister and I enjoyed a few moments of connection at this beautiful home.. It was very clean and pretty much exactly what you see. The house is decorated very artsy and creative early. We never had time to even turn the television on or really have extended relaxation on the lovely sofa in the living room. I will say there was not a ceiling fan in the bedroom as I am used to, and I had to keep the thermostat a bit higher because my 84-year-old mother was very cold. I did not anticipate these differences. There is nothing negative to say truly about this lovely home and th extremely talented artist that owns it. She was so kind and sweet I wish we had met four years ago when my son was just starting college at FSU. This would've been fantastic for longer parent weekends etc. My only negative is the driveway is extremely slanted and doesn't farewell with women In high heels. Nor elderly people and babies as she suggested. She was right on with that recommendation. I don't know if using the garage was even an option, but if I ever stay there again, I would request use of the garage for a flat surface to enter and exit my car. Other than that it was great!

Response from Ruth:
Thanks for the feedback Diane. I learn something new every time I host. No one had ever mentioned it before, but I will place a personal fan in that one bedroom. All other rooms have ceiling fans. Yes, the driveway is sloped, but it is the tradeoff to have a hilltop lake view. There is a nearly flat parking area for two cars at the top and I am always amenable to sharing the garage for parking upon request. Thanks again. Happy holidays! Y'all come back again!

Ruth was great, she stayed in touch before and after check in. Her home is lovely and she is a very thoughtful person. She was unable to greet us at check in, so left a basket of wine, fruit, and snacks. Also written instructions of everything we needed to know. We will definitely book again.

The Purple house is fantastic! It is kept up very well and very well appointed. Very accessible to get into town, but also far enough away from the action to relax. The house has a fun and energetic feel to it that our guests found fascinating! We'll definitely return for our next reunion in Tallahassee!

I love having friends share my beautiful home, bringing music into my living room, and creating art that makes the world a more beautiful place.
