We stayed at the RipJack Inn the week of April 12-20. It was a fantastic experience. We rented the Deluxe Pool Suite for mom and dad and the Pool Suite #2 for our four boys. These rooms are at the end of the property so it was nice and quiet with no foot traffic. I highly recommend these rooms. The... More

We stayed in a family suite which was beautiful, clean and spacious.We loved the family-run feel of the Inn, and the staff was all friendly and helpful. They even offered to make us breakfast the night before our early-morning flight so we would have something to eat before we left! The restaurant had good, fresh food. The smoothies and fresh...

I always start by saying that I am a wedding photographer and I shoot a lot of weddings all over the world, so I don't get to chose the hotel nor do I pay for my trip, so its an unbiased review. OK, I stayed in room 1 right under the restaurant and right by the entrance, so it was... More

I'll start with the restaurant and their staff, for whom I give 5 stars in every respect.I have some food allergy issues (gluten, dairy, others) and got in contact with the hotel before I booked my stay. Management was very proactive and provided me with the planned menus during my stay before I arrived. When I arrived, the wait staff... More

We stayed at the Rip Jack for 4 nights in March and my only wish is that I didn't have to go back home tomorrow! I could easily stay another week and would highly recommend this spot to anyone but especially to families. We stayed in one of the suites by the lap pool and were very happy. Lots of... More
