Lodge Retreats

Our peaceful and relaxing space makes River Ridge Lodge the perfect setting to retreat for self-care. With plenty of indoor and outdoor space, you’ll be assured privacy when you need it. Perfect spots for reflection surround you at our dock on the river, trails in the woods, fields, or the picnic table on the hill. We offer kindness,  space and company if you want it.
