A gem in Madisonville, KY

My daughter and I had a "girls stay" at the Lake House at Ruby Lodge. It was such a beautiful surprise in the middle of downtown! We took a long walk on the 70 acre paradise, saw a beaver, an indigo bunting, four deer, a groundhog, and a Robin with new babies on the porch. We have stayed at B&B's all over the country, and this one is really special. The linens were divine, the breakfasts the best I've ever had (the ham and onion quiche was to die for), and the peace and solitude unrivaled. The room was so nice and clean and the beds were perfect for a good nights rest. Shirley and Joe and Emma made our stay seem almost like family. Will definitely return when we can !

Innkeeper Response

No food was served, coffee maker was okay.

Innkeeper Response
. . .what she didn't note was that as a business traveler, she had to be on the job much earlier than our breakfast hours.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our get-away weekend at the Ruby Lodge/Lake House B&B. The breakfasts were delicious, nutritious and filling-- more then enough to give you a great start to your day. The property is so gorgeous, even in late March when winter is till hanging tough you want to be outside. BTW -- Shirley brews a GREAT pot of COFFEE, hot, no bitterness, nice and smooth on the palate!

Sweet Surprise at Spring Lake

My only experience with a bed and breakfast in the past was a tremendously overpriced place in Charleston, South Carolina. Staying at Ruby Lodge for less than the price of a room at the Hampton Inn has changed my mind about staying in these establishments. The location is gorgeous, the house was a piece of architectural history, the food was delicious, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. We definitely will send our family and friends there when they are in the area.
