We purposely traveled over an hour off our route to our final vacation destination to stay here. All we were looking for was a place to sleep and a good meal. The food was excellent; Kathy and Mark were delightful; and the quiet and lovely scenery we've come to expect from staying at locales in the Champlain Islands didn't disappoint.... More

Incredible view across the Lake right from your front door. Just steps away from the best (only)restaurant on the island, the food was great whether it was a simple breakfast or a late dinner. The owners, Mark and Kathy, are so pleasant and accommodating. The grounds are well kept and the rooms, while small, are cozy and comfortable. We had... More

We loved our stay here... our room was simple but immaculate with stencil borders on the walls and other unique touches... very comfortable beds and bedding. The views are fabulous and the experience restful and relaxing. We rented bikes and toured the small island area. This is a place to come and get away from it all. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

The location of this lodge is beautiful - right on the edge of the lake. You walk right out of your room onto the small lawn which is in front of the rocks and the water. Keep in mind there is no beach area, so you can not swim right there. There is a dock near the restaurant that you... More

We stayed at Ruthcliff Lodge from September 1 to 3. The lodge is perfectly located on Lake Champlain. All rooms are lake front. The nights were quiet and peaceful. "Zen" is the first word that came to our mind. Mark and Kathy, the owners, are really kind and helpful, making us feel at home. Diners was top quality, like a... More

We were in Isle La Motte to visit St. Anne's shrine and stayed at the lodge for 2 nights. If I could, I would give this lodge 2.5 stars, as we felt the accomadations were somewhere between adverage and poor. But as I can't do that I have rounded the rating up to 3. First the possitives - as others... More

We stayed at Ruthcliff Lodge from Thursday, July 12 through July 16. Despite the hot weather in Vermont - we truly enjoyed our stay at Ruthcliff. My husband and I are active people and we loved being able to rent kayaks and bikes from the lodge. Since the lodge is right on the water, we could launch and paddle all... More

Quiet location (no noise at all from the campground next door) located directly on Lake Champlain. We could walk out of our room and were just a few steps away from the lake. Perfect place to sit and enjoy the view. Our room and the bathroom (and the shower) were small - but all that we needed. Breakfast was good... More
