I found the Lake Ripley Lodge through a Google search...was looking for someplace quaint that was not a great distance from the Chicagoland area. What a absolutely charming lodge and lovely innkeepers! I reserved the Lakeside Lodge Room, which was perfect. The view... More

I was arranging a weekend with the girls. Since there was 3 of us, we wanted one room that we could split. The owner was VERY gracious about re-arranging her reservations to accommodate us,as there was a wedding party also staying and they were full, which was appreciated. When we arrived, we had a warm welcome and our room was... More
