Already planning our next stay!
All I can say is, wow. We've done a ton of air bnb's, camping, and hipcamps and this one ranks at the top of my list! We travelled with 14 month old twins and two dogs and it couldn't have been more perfect.
The cabin for perfect for keeping babies contained when we needed and I love that the dogs were able to run at their heart's content. There was a full kitchen with running water, stove and grill on top of a really nice bathroom and propane fire pit that was covered.
There was plenty of seating for a large group, lawn games, and even toys for the littles.
We brought our giant camping box but didn't have to go into it once. You truly just need to bring food and clothes - everything else is provided.
Did we mention there's plenty of trails on site? And if you forgot your lifejacket or tent/kayak at home - no worries, they have ones you can rent!
Seriously, this place was amazing. The owner was incredibly kind and made our stay so enjoyable. We'll be back!

Beautiful. Peaceful. Unique.
Ruby’s Cabin is an absolute gem! From the main cabin and fire pit pavilion to the fully stocked outdoor kitchen and adorable outhouse, everything has been so thoughtfully considered. All structures were lovingly built by Jay with artful little details everywhere you look. We had such a peaceful, relaxing evening hanging out on the porch and even got to watch a herd of elk wander through the meadow below the cabin. We can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful Oregon cabin
This place was just what we needed for a couple days of tech-free fun by the river with the kids. The cabin and outhouse were all so beautifully crafted. Everything we needed was provided. The hosts even had a nice-sized pool blown up for my kids to play in on a super hot day. There was so much space, lots of places to sit and relax, very private and gorgeous. Thank you so much, this was a precious respite for our family. We will definitely be coming back!

Ruby's Cabin is absolutely amazing and so dialed in and organized and welcoming. The cabin itself is so comfortable and everything has been thought about. Sit on the porch and enjoy some peace and quiet. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and the out house! What!?? So incredible and clean and peaceful and well positioned. We will return to this little slice of heaven. Thank you!

Amazing location and the cabin is great! Stocked with everything that could need, just bring your own food and friends. Jay is an incredible host and everything was better than expected. We cant wait to go back!

We, six guys on a bike tour, stayed one night and really enjoyed our short time at Ruby’s. The overall accommodations were great. We marveled at the uniqueness and craftsmanship of all the facilities. The weather was nice and four in our group slept on the decks under the stars.

Ahhhhhhmazing weekend at Rubys cabin. So relaxing. Jay was great and helped us with a bit of camper logistics we had trouble with. Place is well stocked - they thought of everything. We’ve only just returned home and already booked our next trip back in early October.

Couldn't be happier :)
This place is a little treasure! We loved it and would definitely recommend staying at Jay and Tamara's place. It has everything you could ask for, and everything was picture perfect.

Solitude at Ruby’s cabin
We had a fantastic stay with Jay in Ruby’s cabin, easily one of the most memorable stays we have ever had. The cabin was basic, yet wonderful, and Jay proved to be a great host, helping us out with local tips to the area and being super sweet to our kids. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Ruby's Cabin is perfect in every way. Well built, well equipped, beautiful setting, private and lovely hosts. The cabin is a small jewel. We enjoyed it as a couple. The area around the cabin has several nice spots for tents. The whole place would be great for a family reunion or other medium size gathering.

Top 10 Hipcamp!
Top notch, from the moment we arrived till the moment we departed. Jay and his wife have created an experience. One I would not pass up. Great for families. Great for friends. It’s the kind of place you make memories at.

A very special glamping experience
The cabin was very comfortable and catered to my every need. I loved the wood burning stove, the covered deck, the well stocked outdoor kitchen. Even though it rained, I felt very cozy, warm and dry the whole time and enjoyed the green open space, the elk and the quiet. My dog enjoyed being able to roam outside too. Just wonderful!

Off grid Jem!
After our Memorial Day weekend plans got cancelled we got lucky and found Ruby's Cabin. A log cabin off grid on 200+ private acres. Jay has thought about everything and is continuing to make updates. There were two full day beds downstairs and two queen super comfy air mattress in the loft. We had a wonderful time relaxing, napping, playing games by lantern light, keep the fire burning and listening to the rain on the roof!! We will definitely go back!
A few things to note - Jay's upfront about poison oak on the property so be prepared for that - especially if you bring dogs. It also rained most of the time while we were there so the skeeters were plentiful. Don't let these minor things detour you.
Make sure to explore his beautiful property! Jay was also great to talk to. We were super impressed with his building skills and the beautiful cabin he built.

The best stay in Oakridge!
Truly a wonderful place! I have been coming to Oakridge every year, and have been trying to find the best spot that is a camp vibe, but has the amenities to make you feel at home. Ruby’s Cabin is the perfect place. The cabin is beautiful, and Jay built it from the ground up himself. The inside is extremely cozy and comfy for 6. Ideally you have 2 couples in the cozy memory foam beds in the loft, and 2 solo campers In the day beds on the main.
The porch is perfect for relaxing and taking in the views. The kitchenette is beautiful, abs fully stocked. The shelter at fire is perfect to hang while it’s raining and still have a fire. The outhouse is gorgeous and the sink is a perfect touch. The shower is brilliant, throw some hot water in the bags and you have a perfect little refresher after a long day riding.
You don’t need to bring anything but clothes, bikes, and bedding. Jay is a phenomenal host, full of local information and insight. He was kind enough to leave the hose out for us to wash our bikes on a very muddy weekend.
Ruby's Cabin is perfect and we will be back!

Extremely peaceful & private
My partner and I stayed for just one night- but we wish we could have stayed longer! This cabin forces you to unplug- no T-Mobile service until you're much closer to Eugene. The cabin is decked out with numerous places to sit. You definitely don't need to bring camping chairs for this listing. There is an awesome fire pit with covered seating a little ways from the cabin. While we were checking out this area at dusk, we actually noticed a bear walking on the other side of the large field that separates us from the RV camping. It was a safe distance so we weren't concerned, more thrilled that we saw some major wildlife! Especially since we knew we would be safe in our cozy cabin. The fire stove heats the place right up. It wasn't until the next morning that I really appreciated how stocked to outdoor kitchen is, made me wish we were staying for longer! Plus the running sink water was a luxury (with the cutest faucet, I might add). We came with takeout from the local Thai restaurant, but if we return we will definitely cook at the cabin. It is so well stocked that I could just bring ingredients and we would be set. One thing we also loved, as lifelong Oregonians, was the Oregon trivia book we got to read from! Hard to put down!
Only suggestions: A sign you can see from the porch that directs towards the outhouse (couldn't find it at first) and a hook behind the ladder for a lantern (wouldn't bonk your head if it was behind the ladder). But that's all! it's amazing!

We had a great time at Ruby’s cabin. Jay is a great host. The outdoor kitchen is really nice and the cabin even better. All the amenities are nice. Easy to find. Just would have been nice if the cabin had curtains to let us sleep in. We will be coming back in the future.

Absolutely Awesome!! The kitchen they have set up has everything you need. The outhouse is by far thee nicest outdoor toilet, ever! While we ate dinner, we got to see deer grazing across the meadow. It was awesome! 10/10 would recommend!

If you want to get away this is the spot! Very clean organized and well stocked!
