We have just returned from our 3 night stay at Ripplewood Resort. We stayed in Cabin #14 which was behind the gas station and quite near the highway. We arrived after dark and when we entered the cabin it was quite disappointing. Very small room with very old dirty love seat , two hard chairs and a table. Most of the windows were painted shut. Overhead lighting was good, but not placed where you could read a book. As others have mentioned, there is no cellular reception or wi-fi or television. No games in the room either, so there was nothing to do after dark. Shower stall was so small that my husband kept banging against the sides, and the shower head was not adjustable so I couldn't shower at all without getting my hair wet which I chose not to do as there was no hair dryer provided.
The location is beautiful and the food at the diner was very good as was the service. Perhaps cabin 14 is the only cabin that is undesirable, but for nearly $200.00 a night it was very over-priced.
We'll look for something not quite so bare-bones next time.
