We have four absolutely amazing sons and two precious grandchildren. Their favorite place to be is on the island with Mimi and Geepa. Cooking and spending time with friends and family are our passions...and maybe a little Tampa Bay Rays baseball and NFL games.

Ruth Lyerly purchased this cottage in 2011

My husband's work takes him all over the world and nothing is more relaxing for him than to drive 20 minutes from home and feel as though he's on vacation. Our middle son is a charter captain on the island, Captain Josh, which comes in quite handy for a fishing outing or supplies for a Friday night fish fry. We will retire on this island.

All of our out of town friends and family who have vacationed on AMI enjoy the quaint feel of the island and the ability to walk almost anywhere.....we couldn't agree more.

RUTHIE'S RETREAT IS THE BEST!

We arrived on June 9th and were delighted to see such a cute, well decorated cottage. The proximity to the beach, just 2 short blocks was wonderful, and we could walk to the Sandbar restaurant and Ginny and Janes. The small fenced in area outside was the favorite spot for our two small dogs! The cottage is very charming and very, very comfortable. We will be back as soon as we can arrange the time! Thanks for such a wonderfully relaxing place to spend our vacation!

RUTHIE'S RETREAT HAS IT ALL.

Ruthie's Retreat has it all.
  • 5 of 5
Ruthie’s Retreat was the key factor in our wonderful stay on AMI. Its location is perfect.The Gulf, the shops on Pine Avenue, City Pier and lots of great restaurants are all just a short walk away. In addition to being as cute as the photos suggest, the cottage is amazingly well-equipped and offered plenty of space when our family grew to five during one week of our stay. I can’t think of a single thing we needed that was not provided. The owner even found us a ‘pack n play’ when she learned our granddaughter would be visiting. We really appreciated having the use of the bicycles and a full complement of beach accessories. The weather was perfect and we used them every day. The property manager and owner could not have been more helpful in making sure we enjoyed our stay. It was hard to leave. Ruthie’s is truly a gem.

CHARMING AND COZY BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my partner John and dog Max for the month of February. The cottage offers everything you will need for a fabulous stay on Anna Maria Island. It is nicely decorated (beachy themed), extremely clean and well-stocked. We used the beach chairs, beach umbrellas and wagon. The town, the beach and great restaurants are just a few blocks away. No car needed. Free trolley service is also offered on the Island. We loved our stay on Anna Maria Island and especially in Ruthie's Retreat. Our only regret was that we could not get it for the following year.

CHARMING, COZY, COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed the last week in October at Ruthie's Retreat... it was a PERFECT getaway for two... or three or four since there is a "bunk room" which will sleep children comfortably. The "beach" theme can be seen throughout the home with cute sayings, lovely original artwork and shells to remind you that the beautiful gulf sands are only three short blocks away.... what could be more convenient! The local shops and restaurants were just around the corner .. a convenient bike ride away.
Everything in Ruthie's Retreat was immaculately clean... kitchen, bath, no dust or sand to be seen anywhere! It is, by far, the cleanest and most lovingly cared for home in which we have ever stayed. The kitchen cabinets offered an array of staples and was well-equipped with appliances and table service items. I especially liked the dining table on the porch giving an "al fresco" feel to meals without pesty bugs! We appreciated the high-speed internet connection and my husband loved the big-screen tvs with hundreds of channel offerings! Wait... I didn't mention the DVD library, books and assorted games to wile away the time on a rainy day!
I cannot say enough good things about this adorable home... it truly offers all the comforts of home and will definately will be on our list for a future stay in Anna Maria Island. I cannot close without praising Lin, the property manager, who kept in touch with us before, during and after our stay. She offered numerous suggestions about restaurants,shops and attractions on the island and was always available to answer questions. Her thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated and made us feel right at home when we arrived and throughout our stay.
