About Ruby Montana

Ruby Montana migrated to Palm Springs, Ca. in 2000 after purchasing a small boutique hotel called Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Inn. Prior to living in Palm Springs, Ruby was a resident of the wonderful Seattle, Washington, and had a store there for some twenty years. Ruby Montana's Pinto Pony in Pioneer Square was a kitsch Emporium that held everything from a Corbusier sofa to an invisible dog leash. Whack and wonderful. Ruby sponsered the National Spam Contest in Seattle for 10 years and was featured in People Magazine and on Jay Leno with regard to it...interviewed every February by 100s of radio stations internationally about the whacky contest. Ruby went to The University of Michigan and received a degree in Music. She majored in the French Horn and it managed to pay her way through college. Ruby was born in El Reno, Oklahoma, and is a pie baker. Ruby has a deep regard for animals and a passion for rescuing small dogs. In April 2013 Ruby formed a 501(c)3 called Ruby Montana's Pie in the Sky Animal Rescue. She saves 100s of dogs a year from certain death by fostering them and then placing them in homes. Ruby began baking pies for Trio Restaurant in order to meet the costs of rescuing a dog from a shelter. Each dog costs in the neighborhood of $200 to rescue. Her pies were always in such demand at Trio that she started Ruby Montana's Pie in the Sky Pie of the Month Club. Ruby had 50 members at last count. Her Let the Sunshine Lemon Meringue Pie is so popular at Trio Restaurant that it is generally sold out before 7 p.m. Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Inn sits close to Rancho Las Palmas and they work beautifully for hosting larger groups of people...reunions, weddings, retreats, golf name it. Ruby loves the Old Las Palmas neighborhood that Rancho and The Coral Sands are located in. They are situated just around the corner from Liberace's first home where one can still find the original grand piano mail box.

A Great Place for a Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We gathered here with our children for the holidays and had a wonderful time. The house is great for entertaining with several places to gather and visit. Ruby has put her special touch in the decorating with an emphasis on Old Hollywood. We enjoyed staying there and the friends who came to visit thought it was amazing. A great place!

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Ruby was a fantastic hostess, she answered all of our questions and was always available if we needed further info. This property was perfect for our family, we had 3 adults and 2 kids. The house is laid out for lots of privacy and yet also has rooms to get together, if wanted. We loved the location and walked to a great Mexican restaurant that Ruby suggested at least 3 times during our one week stay. Everything was provided, linens, appliances, kitchen items, etc. were in excellent condition. The house has a amazing DVD collection which we enjoyed several nights. The yard is huge for the area and is landscaped in natives. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, we really liked it and so enjoyed the unusual furnishings and decor. We were the first renters since the house was remodeled and felt privileged to stay there, hoping to return again in 2015! We appreciated the inclusive price, many places charge an additional utilities fee, we liked the one price fits all approach! Thanks Ruby, your property is lovely and we enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again! Lucinda Borchard
