The historic Ruby Ranch Lodge has been a weekend getaway destination for generations. It boasts many notable guests and was even a favorite relaxation spot for
the late president Lydon B. Johnson. Ruby Ranch is an event venue with lodging that hosts weddings, family reunions, corporate meetings and celebrations. The ties to Texas are seen throughout the Lodge with the use of local materials like cedar and limestone. With the main house and a private cabin sitting on 10 plus acres of land along Onion Creek, there is plenty of room to stretch out and settle into the beautiful Texas Hill Country. 


The house with both southern charm and serene atmosphere can accommodate as many as twenty-three overnight guests. The indoor-outdoor living space creates the best of both worlds with private and communal spaces. The Lodge creates an air of closeness that makes you feel welcomed right away. It isn’t a rare sight to see everyone gathered on the front porch, talking into the wee hours of the night. But for those quiet mornings, there are many comfortable nooks outside to sit and have your morning coffee or read that book you've been meaning to read.


If this sounds like the perfect weekend getaway for you, make sure to call and book lodging two weeks in advance to avoid conflicts with other booked events.
