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...

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...

Found Lake Ripley Lodge on the Glacial Drumlin Bike Trail Website. We do an annual Ladies Only Bike Trip. Couldn't ask for a better location! Just a few miles from the trailhead in Lake Mills. After biking you can come back and relax on one of the swings at the lodge or take a swim in beautiful Lake Ripley! The...

We were just looking for some time away from the kids and needed a place not too far away. This was our first time here and we loved our room and the great lake view, along with the excellent food and gracious hosts. The lodge is a short time away from nearby towns, where you can find shopping, hiking, and...

Janice and Jim are the gracious hostess/host of this wonderful lodge - Bed and Breakfast Inn. We arrived in the early evening and found our room to be delightfully clean and cozy; a lake view from the front window added to the charm. A quick ride into town for dinner at The Mill Restaurant (suggested by a local) was yet...

My husband and I had a wonderful time, enjoying the beautiful views of the lake, the large screened in porch and rockers, the dock and canoeing on the lake, and the clean and comfortable rooms. There was plenty to do nearby: hiking, biking, antiquing, touring a microbrewery. The only drawback was that breakfast is no longer being offered at this...

We rented the entire B&B for an annual family reunion and it was perfect! Enough bedrooms to accommodate all of us and between the kitchen and dining room tables we could even all eat at the same time. We have a mix of older (60s and 70s) and younger families (infants to age 10) and it worked out well for...

We loved the Ripley Lodge. The location is excellent - on the water front and in a quiet section of town. It realy feels like you're out in the country but then it's only 20 miles from Madison. The owners know the area and can really recommend where to go. Many parks are around for hiking and biking. The rooms...

We needed a much needed break and Lake Ripley Lodge was the answer! The hosts made us feel very welcome - including getting the canoe out for the season and storing our bikes. Smores around the fire were fantastic as was the conversation with the other guests. Our room was small but cozy and clean. Food was great and coffee...

Despite the great effort of the owners this place disappointed us. Yes, it is clean, and the hosts try hard to be helpful, but there are more important constituents of a good vacation then that. The biggest turnoff was a really moldy muffin for breakfast. Now, on to the general comments. If you have not been to Lake Ripley you...
