The Ruše Lodge (Slovene: Ruška koča), or the Tine Lodge at Areh (Tinetov dom pri Arehu; 1,246 m or 4,088 ft) is a mountain lodge in the Pohorje Mountains (northeastern Slovenia), built by locals in 1907. It is open through the whole year.

Before World War II, three lodges – Ruše Lodge, Čander Lodge (Čandrova koča; named after an old Pohorje family Robnik–Čander), and Planika, together with St. Henry's Church (cerkev sv. Areha), formed a mountain resort. The lodges were burned during the war. The current lodge was built in 1946 and expanded in 1977. Due to the demand, a new Čander Lodge was also built.
