This was our first trip to Nova Scotia and we could not have stayed at a better place than the River Ridge Lodge. It's very well done, peaceful, quiet, and extremely convenient to the Mahone Bay area. Our room was excellent and the breakfast each morning was a great way to start off the day. Frauke is terrific at helping with wonderful recommendations for the area sites, activities, and dining. It was a very memorable trip and the River Ridge lodge was a key component.

One of the best B&Bs ever! The hosts, Frauke and Mike, are warm and friendly and helpful, with advice on local restaurants and places to visit. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts are delicious, with home-made granola, yogurt, toast, coffee, and more. Easy access from Halifax on the highway, but then driving distance to Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove, on local roads. The Lodge is on a beautiful piece of property in a quiet area, and you can even go down to the boathouse and sit by the river. I cannot recommend River Ridge Lodge highly enough, for locals on a weekend away, or travellers from anywhere.

Lovely, comfortable stay at River Ridge. Frauke and Mike were the perfect hosts. Their charming renovated historic farmhouse is a peaceful haven in the picturesque Mahone Bay, Lunenburg area. Beautiful property with lots to do in the area. Easy to find location. Clean, bright, friendly, great breakfast - you'll want to move in!

Our spacious room overlooked the beautiful grounds. Bed was most comfortable and everything was spotless. Breakfast had nice variety of fresh fruit, eggs, granola and much more (all organic). Great location to activities. The owners are friendly and well informed of the area. A must place to stay when traveling nearby.

Room was excellent, clean and comfortable. Home was set on beautiful property in a very peaceful area. The owners were very wonderful people. We stayed two nights and wished we had more time. Definitely returning next time we are around that area and would recommend it to everyone we know.

Highly recommend this wonderful B & B, with a location close to Mahone Bay. Room was on the ground floor with a very comfortable bed and huge on-suite. Continental breakfast was healthy and generous! Good parking, great WiFi, and location. Would stay again and again!

Lovely spacious room in a friendly environment. The tasty breakfast provided us with granola and a good selection of breads and jams. It is necessary to stay more than one day in order take the bike trail into Mahone Bay or visit the nearby beaches. The owners have numerous suggestions for places to visit.

River Ridge Lodge is a very beautiful place. Would definitely come back and would definitely recommend the place. The owners are very friendly and very helpful. It’s a very peaceful spot with beautiful scenery.

Peaceful surroundings, awesome and very friendly owners, delicious breakfasts, quiet comfortable rooms and a chance to meet outside on the veranda with other guests, or alone. if you wish. This is a wonderful place to stay and a great value for the money. Don't miss Charlie, a gentle gigantic black Newfoundland dog, but only if you wish his company.

We were referred to this spot by another B and B that was booked. I am happy to say it I was a wonderful stay. Owners were friendly, and they were a wealth of knowledge with places to visit in the surrounding area. Will definitely book again in future.
