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.
