Ruby Lodge at Spring Lake Woods is actually comprised of two estate homes, The Lodge and The Lake House, overlooking the 100+ year old Spring Lake offering a total of seven guest rooms. Although only three blocks from downtown Madisonville in Western Kentucky, the Bed & Breakfast is situated on 70 acres of primarily wooded land, complete with lake and outdoor pool and hydrospa to be enjoyed in warmer months. Given its serenity and natural beauty, the facility is ideal for weddings and celebrations of all types as well as off-site business and sales meetings. A great value ranging from $95 - 145 depending on season, including full breakfast and WiFi. Our other property is a 6 bedroom Victorian on Main Street only 1/2 block from downtown and features a Continental Breakfast at a nearby coffee shop.

We came to the area for the total eclipse. Most innkeepers had raised their rates, but Shirley did not. She only required a reasonable minimum stay. The inn is set on 20+ wooded acres in the middle of town. No one would know it was there. Our room looked out on a lake, and we were visited by a pair of tiny deer. Totally serene. Shirley makes a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend.

We arrived early and was able to check in after a few phone calls. The home was so charming and the pool was just right after riding a motorcycle all day. We saw deer and lots of birds. Breakfast was delicious, we would definately go back

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.

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.
