What it's like

As you approach The Ruby Hotel, you'll notice the seamless blend of nature with this retreat. On the northern banks of Brushy Creek, cattle often roam, while water birds make their nests in the tall morning trees. Situated on the edge of a cliff, The Ruby Hotel boasts terraced gardens, creating a serene and scenic atmosphere throughout the property. Here, you can relax by the pool under the dappled shade of century-old live oaks.

Independent spirit

A boutique energized by the changing world.

Small touches

For a life well-lived, you need well-loved amenities. Sleep on a plush mattress with premium bedding and linens. Wake up and set the day's soundtrack with the Tivoli Bluetooth alarm clock radio. Savor freshly brewed coffee from an in-room Nespresso. Revitalize with luxurious aromatherapy bath products crafted from essential oils and shea butter. Lounge on the balcony, taking in captivating views of Brushy Creek or the property's gardens and pool. Elevate at the onsite fitness center or on nearby hiking trails. At The Ruby Hotel, amenities are simply done right.

Eat and drink

At The Ruby Bar, the food and drinks are as stylish and evocative as the property where they are served. This watering hole is a renovated 1960s house with a patio overlooking Brushy Creek and a living room-style lounge where you can enjoy custom cocktails, beer, wine, and appetizers.
