Lake Ripley Lodge Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 4 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 20, 2008

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 was comfortable. The guests have use of a lounge are and the rocking chairs on the porch. we also enjoyed walking on the private jetty to the little bench where you could sit and watch the water.

Free internet connection was provided.

I wish we had booked two nights on our touring journey.

We were looking for a place to have a "get away weekend" where we could enjoy a quiet atmosphere, relaxation, and good food. We found the next best thing to Heaven. Jim & Janice Hoiby, the inkeepers of Lake Ripley Lodge, have just that place. Their lodge is beautiful, the accomodations are superb, the food is fabulous. Just a few steps from Lake Ripley - the unobstructed view of the lake makes the whole picture complete. We were very pleased with our first ever stay at a bed and breakfast. The location is perfect, just a mile from the quiant village of Cambridge, WI or twenty minutes from Madison. Our plans for the day were easily determined. Cambridge is a quiet town with great restaurants and fabulous small town shopping. They know how to keep visitors coming back time and time again. Janice introduced me to a local massage therapist so we could start the weekend out "all relaxed"! Thanks Tina! We loved it and will return!

Loved the lodge and the owners. Great location, wonderful atmosphere and welcoming staff. You can not go wrong with this historic, scenic bed and (way to much) breakfast.

What a delightful time my siblings and I had at Lake Ripley Lodge. Janice and Jim Hoiby (the Inkeepers) were a delight and made us feel like we were family. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful. Just a few steps outside to enjoy the lake view and a few more steps and you were in the water. Janice and Jim have done a fantastic job fixing up this Lodge that was built back in early 1900's. This was a family reuinion with my siblings and only made our time together more enjoyable. I don't think anyone would be disappointed at staying here!
