We spent four nights at the Lake Ripley Lodge and loved it. We were looking for a nice place to kick back and relax, and relax we did! The home was welcoming, clean and comfortable. Our hosts, Jim & Jan, were wonderful and helpful, recommending many area restaurants and things to see/do in the area. We took their advice and... More

Had a great weekend and loved the location, with sunsets across the lake. Our hosts were very accommodating, supplying plenty of info on area dining and points of interest. Our room was very clean and the bed very comfy. We will definitely be back.

We discovered the Lake Ripley Lodge in the fall of 2008 and made our first visit there in late October that year. Our intention was to escape the nearby Chicagoland NW suburbs for a weekend in Wisconsin checking out the fall foilage. We accomplished our goal, and then some. Our visit to LRL was so enjoyable last year that we... More

Life is crazy. Hectic schedules, dealing with deadliines and the "real" world. When I need a place to get away and step back from it all, I never hesitate to come to the Lodge. This is my third stay this year, and I am never disappointed with the accommodations, the friendly confines, and the ability to kick back and relax... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Lake Ripley Lodge B&B, and both times have been wonderful. Jim and Janice are great hosts and provide a comfortable stay. My room was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is always a treat. I've been there twice with family. The first time there were 10 of us, and this last weekend, five of... More

We are sorry to score lower then previous reviews but feel we must report our own experience and you can draw your own conclusions from that. We arrived at 3.00 o’clock and were told to come back at 4.00 as we were an hour early. There was no offer of sitting in the lounge but still we were early! We... More

This Bed and Breakfast Lodge is an absolute delight. The hosts Jim and Janice were so helpful they really have the balance right between engaging their guests and leaving them to relax. The atmosphere of this place is just so relaxing and calming. It overlooks the beautiful lake. The rooms were immaculately clean as was the shower room. The bed... More
