We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay on 09/13/2014. The inn was amazing to see, and beautiful to look at. The food was awesome, and the company that we were able to share it with was equally entertaining. We hope to someday come again!

We only spent a night, but I definitely recommend the place. Even though we had to be on our way at 6:30 the next morning, Lorraine and Richard prepared a full breakfast for us! If you're looking for a quite, nice cosy place to stay around the Champlain Lake, this is definitely a great spot.

We just stumbled upon the ransom bay inn last night. It was close to 9pm on a friday night and everything was closed in the champlain islands. We were warmly greeted and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. We ordered rib eye steak rare and it was and very big portion served perfectly rare which is a rare occurrence! We also had the lamb which was divine. They baked their own bread too.It was a good value, great atmosphere and friendly service. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much

Ransom Bay Inn is a very beautiful place to have your meal, the dining is fantastic and the staff is very friendly. We were a big party so they gave us a private dining room where we had a great time. Overall, a very lovely place.

I'm a francophone from Quebec,,so my review will be in french. Un accueil courtois et en toute simplicité. Le repas du soir était excellent. La sélection des vins, parfaite. Excellent service. Une nuit paisible comme à la maison de campagne de mon père. Un déjeuner sublime. You have to taste the french toast. It's a must! Un gros merci à Loraine et Richard. Nous reviendrons, c'est sûr!.

A beautifully renovated 200-yr old inn with all its original charm yet with all the modern conveniences (except TV.) Plenty of space in the wicker room and the bathroom was great: tiled shower and white art deco floor. Rick and Lorraine could not have been friendlier or more accommodating hosts, providing Inn history, lots of local info and excellent meals. Their pride in their accomplishments and enjoyment of their work was quite evident. Will go considerably out of our way to return when in the area again.

My wife and I rode our bikes from Brooklyn, NY to Montreal. On the afternoon of our 4th day we found ourselves in a bike shop in Burlington, VT asking the friendly mechanic how much farther to Montreal. It was already 2:00 pm, so he quickly looked up some lodging options on our way north and gave us the phone numbers. Once we finally got to the Champlain Isles, we realized it was getting late and we should find a place to stay. We called the Ransom Bay Inn and they had one more room. We pedaled up there through some very pretty farm country, but I didn't expect much from the Inn, especially after seeing many of the lake-side motels we passed. We arrived exhausted, parked our bikes and couldn't believe our luck. The Inn was cozy and beautiful. The food was outstanding. The room was really comfortable. The inn keepers were terrific. The breakfast both big and delicious, and because it was held in a communal room where you got to meet other guests (as opposed to dinner the night before, which was more romantic), we were able to meet other travelers, including a young couple from Montreal biking south. The Ransom Bay Inn will remain a high point of our whole trip.

My daughter and I had the good fortune to book an overnight stay at the Ransom Bay Inn on our way from Montreal to New York City, in November. Rick and Loraine are the Inn Keepers from heaven, and their hospitality abounds! Not only did they prepare and serve us delicious culinary delights for dinner, and breakfast, but they offered these things with a generosity usually reserved for family. The two hundred and eighteen year old home, in which this Bed and Breakfast resides, has a lovely atmosphere, and furnishings, which instantly make you feel as if you've stepped back in time to simpler days. Rick and Loraine were more than willing to share the history of their charming Inn, and of the surrounding Isles and Lake Champlain as well. We will definitely return to Ransom Bay Inn, and highly recommend this B and B to everyone. Thank you again Loraine and Rick for making our first trip to Vermont a very special one!

This jewel is a real DIAMOND of an Inn/B&B, and is the BEST you will find at very reasonable rates in this area. If you want the charm, elegance and flair of European style throughout your stay, choose Ransom Bay Inn B&B (or just stay home). Rick and Loraine, you are the best, and Leslie and I will be back very soon. (twice more at least; on her birthday and for Blake's Xmas day surprise) in December 2011. Rick, how would Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal be on "you know what?" Here's a little Tidbit: The von Trapp Family Lodge "Austrian Tea Room" 'secret' bar mix ingredient now revealed here first!! :) and also, Did someone say that the USA's First President: General George Washington MAY have slept or camped out here? (For REAL!!) (oh, I just did! Oops!) We love you both! Bob C, Leslie E., and Blake E., from Andover, Massachusetts. (soon to be Mr. and Mrs. C. - April or May 2012 - will see you then, too! ) ~ciao~

Our recent stay at Ransom Bay Inn B&B was a great addition to our Northern Vermont/Canadian vacation. The meals were spectacular and cooked to order when we arrived in the dining room. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful with local suggestions and accommodating to all our needs. Can't wait to return...
