Located near the banks of the St. Joseph river, amid the trees and rolling pastures, Niles township has gained one more point of interest. The Minisee Bed & Breakfast. Certified Raw Vegan Chef Ruby Minisee has converted her home into a Bed and Breakfast. This rest stop sits on two beautiful acres, about 30 miles South of Highway 94. The home boasts 5 guest rooms and a cozy family room heated by a wood-burning furnace. There is plenty of space to stretch out for the evening and relax. But this is no ordinary place to lay your head for the evening. Guests at this Bed & Breakfast are treated to delicious raw vegan meals. “You won’t get fried eggs here” says Ruby with a chuckle. The super energetic entrepreneur takes pride in serving guests healthy, raw vegan cuisine for breakfast. She also cooks conventional vegetarian food and is very careful to take special eating requirements into account when preparing her menu. For example, if you have gluten allergies or any other condition, that is no problem at all. Having practiced as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years has helped Ruby to gain a keen understanding of the various health conditions and how to cook healthy food that addresses those conditions.

Me and my hubby and three kids stayed here, and it was wonderful. Ruby and Robert are very nice people. The Education you get while staying here about food, nutrition is priceless. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The house is quiet and the atmosphere is very inviting and you feel at home. It was a wonderful experience and I recommend this place for everyone!! We will return again and again!

Traveling to see the fall leaves, we stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast for a night. We were so pleased with the experience. Stayed up late enjoying Ruby's wisdom around eating raw and vegan, and tasting some delicious samples of nut milk, vegan ice cream, and kale chips, that she whipped up on the spot. Everyone there was so kind and knowledgeable and warm and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was out of this world, probably the best i've had in years. The quiet and cozy room let us relax in peace. I couldn't recommend it more. Lesley Kartali

Ruby and Robert are wonderful hosts. Ruby is a vegan wizard in the kitchen and makes everything from scratch - buckwheat waffles, homemade oven fries, applesauce, peach butter and more! You will feel like one of the family here. They have a lovely home and a nice front porch with chairs. They also sell home grown produce. We stayed with our kids and small dog and our stay was wonderful, and a great value also. The rooms have attached air conditioners and there are not TVs in the rooms so it's nice to get out and about to St. Joseph's and some of the other nearby towns. If you want caffeine in the morning bring your own.. that is the only downside - but we recommend Ruby's Inn especially for those interested in healthy living.

The bonus of staying here was the education that we received about food and nutrition. Ruby is a Live Food Consultant. She is an advocate of a raw and living plant based diet. We learned first hand that meals prepared in this manner are flavorful and delicious. One breakfast consisted of a slow cook breakfast cereal and the other was a grain and nut based waffle served with homemade fruit jam. We know that her plans for weekend retreats focused on health and nutrition will be very successful. She is an enthusiastic educator with a delightful sense of humor.

Gardening, we have a fruit & vegetable roadside stand that we operate during the summer and fall at the entrance. Natural health is a passion for Ruby. We built our home as our 5 children left one year after the other. He now drives truck over the road and is home on weekends. He loves to cook and I prepare raw food.
