After spending long days visiting with my dad in the "Eddie Ballard" Western Kentucky Veterans Center, it was so relaxing and peaceful to come back to Ruby Lodge. Shirley fixed the yummiest breakfast and I enjoyed just sitting and chit chatting about the history of the lodge and Madisonville. I definitely will be back and recommended that my family stay...

We get together every summer with a group of old friends and this place is perfect. We can use the kitchen if we feel like cooking or go out to restaurant. Large common areas make it nice to get together and large grounds if we want to play an outdoor game. Shirley is a wonderful host and after going there... More

Our stay was close to perfect. The great weather helped but the B&B itself, Shirley, the 10 acre lake, and lots of land for the kids to run around on made for an exceptional experience. We'll definitely be back!

a stopover in Madisonville, Kentucky at the Lake House, next to Ruby Lodge. I don't know how Shirley and her family do it, but we felt at home the minute we stepped inside the house. One of our daughters who stayed with us does not like dead animals on the walls, but she said, "i don't care; if I am... More

I think I was the only person n the building that weekend. It was nicely furnished and in great condition. Nice place. Only problem was coffee area - it needed care. Breakfast was about 1/2 mile away at Ruby Lodge. Food was good and owner was pleasant.

Our family stayed here twice on our way to and from Florida, and both times were excellent. We stayed in the Lake House which is charming, very clean, and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious--Shirley is a great cook! We had driven for many hours both days and were exhausted when we arrived--both times Shirley and her daughter were lovely and... More

It was fantastic. They helped arrange the flowers, the chocolates and our late arrival. I not only recommend the facility, but we will stay again. We are planning a group trip now with friends to the same location.

A welcoming B/B located near downtown Madisonville but isolated. Shirley and Joe are great hosts and very gracious and experienced. They make you feel at home. We stayed at the main lodge in the Doe room on the first floor. Joe and Shirley have additional facilities in a neighboring house(Lake House) and a Victorian house in downtown Madisonville. The rates... More
