MOST PLEASANT VISIT

4.4 on April 25, 2016

Steve and Phyllis Villines - Ocean Springs MS We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on 17-18 April 2016. The grounds and property are beautiful and quite well kept. The view of the lake is very pleasant and relaxing - especially while having morning coffee on the deck at the Lake House. Another plus is that the grounds are a haven for wildlife. We saw a muskrat, a heron, and numerous deer. Lots of songbirds as well. Very nice. Ms. Shirley Thomas is simply an excellent hostess; as well as quite the cook. We really enjoyed the breakfast both days. She has such a graceful manner; we feel like we have known her for years. We definitely plan to stay at the Ruby Lodge the next time we visit Madisonville.


Perfect!

My wife and I returned to Madisonville to attend a memorial service for my Mother. The serenity of the Lake House and wonderful breakfasts provided by Shirley were a great help through a difficult few days. We were also able to invite close members of the family to join us at a reception beautifully catered by Shirley--a wonderful opportunity to bring closure to the events of the week. Although the details surrounding our stay were undoubtedly unique, it seems to us that the hospitality and care for our comfort were clearly indicative of what all guests might expect at the Ruby Lodge.

Hidden Gem

4.2 on October 17, 2015

Charming and comfortable hideaway in a park-like setting. Feels like Grandma's house, if Grandma had her own lake and oodles of antique furniture and fine china. Delicious hot breakfast. If you are interested, hosts Joe and Shirley are happy to tell you the history of the property and its significance in local history. I would stay again.


Very Enjoyable

Great Weekend Retreat

4.6 on June 28, 2015

My husband and I recently went to Ruby Lodge for a weekend get-away. We stayed in the master suite of the Lake House. Both the lodge and the lake house were beautifully decorated and full of history. The scenery was serene and peaceful. Our hostess was very friendly and made an excellent breakfast. We hope to stay there again in the future.


Great Quiet Getaway Location

4.0 on May 26, 2015

We needed a quiet place to get away and unwind. This was perfect for that. If you're looking for lots of sight-seeing or night life, this is not that place. But it is just what the doctor ordered for unplugging. Interesting architecture of the facility, and some great family history.


Fantastic experience!

Greeted by two does when driving on the grounds, we knew we had made the right decision. Gorgeous property with all amenities. Lake was beautiful and we were sorry we couldn't sit outside because of rain. Hostess friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Would definitely go back again!


Great place to stay in Madisonville!
