Savor the tranquility of Lake Ripley Lodge as you retreat to the porch swing, and feel as if you've taken a step back in time while you relax and hear the ripples of the waves with refreshing breezes of the lake. Stargaze from the pier, drift by boat, kayak the lake, or linger by the fire. Unwind and experience a lingering sunset dancing off the glistening water.

A Biking Retreat!

Thank you Jim & Janis, Your hospitality was outstanding, the lodge is beautiful and extremely comfortable. Those luxury beds make for a great night's sleep. We had so much fun riding our bikes around the area to see all the sights. Finishing our days with a swim in the lake was perfect. Looking forward to another visit.

"We recently spent four nights at the Lake Ripley Lodge and loved every minute of it! We were looking for a peaceful place to kick back and relax, and relax we did! The home is very welcoming, clean and comfortable. Being able to relax on the front porch and in the front yard as we viewed the lake was just what we needed. We would highly recommend the Lake Ripley Lodge as a getaway spot!… Sarah and Tom

Peaceful retreat!

Jim and Janice have a wonderful home! Rocking on the porch, watching the boats and the sunset, playing games, and reading on the screened in porch was so peaceful and relaxing. Janice was very accommodating and pleasant to visit with. Words cannot express what a greet time my mother and I had.

Thank you!
