Women played an important role in the literary career of Juhan Smuul, the most famous resident of Koguva village. Our only room with king size bed is named after Smuul’s mother Ruudu. She was one tough Muhu woman. She was 40 years old at the time of Johan’s birth, and in addition to her own son, she also brest-fed two other babies while their mothers were working on the fields. Juhan Smuul wrote about her mother that she was a great storyteller and lived her feet firmly on the ground but head always turned towards the sun.
The room Ruudu is the only one to have a private balcony overlooking the pastures, the village and the harbour. Naturally Ruudu’s guests may also use the sundeck at the seafacing end of the house with a view to the sunset.
