Description & Details of Ruah Bed & Breakfast
RUAH BED & BREAKFAST received six pages in the March 1996 issue of "House Beautiful" magazine and was also featured in the September 1996 issue of "Forbes FYI".

RUAH is located on the northern end of Lake George where the simple pleasures are paramount. It is owned and operated by Judy and Peter Foster. Peter is a landscape architect and the spectacular gardens reflect his passion and talent. Judy is a floral designer and her touch is evident throughout the elegant home.

The stately home was built by Harry Waltrous in 1900. Mr. Waltrous was a well-known turn-of-the-century artist. (It is reputed that Stanford White was the architect). Harry was a colorful character and his most famous prank was his Lake George Monster hoax in 1904, newsworthy enough for the New York Times. The "Monster" now resides in the Lake George museum.

Prior to the Foster's purchase, the home was frequented by many sports and show business personalities, including Jack Dempsey, Arthur Godfrey and Bing Crosby.
