Our family reunion at Lake Ripley Lodge B & B was perfect in every way, including beautiful Wisconsin weather. The Lodge was welcoming, lovely, and very clean and comfortable, with a fascinating history that added to its charm. The Grand Porch -- one of several areas to socialize -- was an amazing gathering place for all 17 of us where... More

This was my first experience in a B & B and I was a bit hesitant, but once we checked in all my hesitations were put to rest. Lake Ripley Lodge was perfect as are the owners, Janice and Jim. The house is charming, historical, extremely clean and very inviting. Breakfast was delightful. Many homemade goodies. The screened-in wrap around... More

We had our family reunion at Lake Ripley Lodge and it worked extremely well for us. The cozy common room and spacious porch gave us plenty of places to spread out and socialize while the guest rooms were charming and comfortable. Janice and Jim, the owners, were very friendly and accommodating and put out a tasty breakfast each morning including... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
