Wonderful place to just get away and relax....

5 on October 20, 2013

Lake Ripley Lodge Bed and Breakfast is a real find!! My husband and I could not have been happier to find such a great b and b!! Even thought the weather did not cooperate, the front porch with the view to the lake is awesome. Janice and hubby are the perfect hosts. The feeling of truly being at home is what you experience at Lake Ripley! The food, conversations, and the views all added up to a wonderful getaway!! We will be coming back and the next time we want to include our daughters in the next trip!! Thank you Janice and Jim for a truly wonderful experience!!!

Relax and Recharge

4.4 on September 10, 2013

Lake Ripley Lodge Bed & Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. We had such a warm welcome by the owner. She was very gracious and promotes local business. We had dinner in Lake MIlls one night and the other night in Cambridge. We had 5 in our group and we felt at home the entire time. We were there to visit the annual Quilt show in Madison. We will be back next year! My favorite place was the front porch sitting in the porch swing relaxing after walking around at the show. Others of our group jumped in the Lake and another was swinging on the patio. All in all it was an awesome place to relax and recharge.

Our first stay here - we found it a great place to get away for a few days. Our room was very nice with a great view of Lake Ripley. The food was excellent and our hosts were very gracious. Will definitely stay here again.

Great Escape

4.6 on July 24, 2011

Just returned from a three day weekend at the Lake Ripley Lodge. It's a wonderful place to stay. When we were not biking, we spent time either outside or on the large 1200 ft screened porch. We watched the sunset both evenings sitting on the pier. We also enjoyed both the porch and outside swings. Food was excellent!
