The Ridge View Motor Lodge was built by the previous owners, Martin & Shirley Beyer, in 1988-1989, on what was a grazing pasture for cattle from their 250 acre Dairy Farm. After selling their herd of dairy cattle, they turned their eyes toward a new venture. After a great deal of research and investigation, they found a serious need for more overnight accommodations in the Lewis County area. Martin & Shirley began plans to construct the Ridge View, whose name comes from the Ridged area that can be viewed from the back of the Motor Lodge. After numerous set backs, including the original contractor going bankrupt, Martin took over as the contractor of the building, hiring the original crew from the now defunct construction group that had begun the project. That was not the end of the troubles though. During a powerful windstorm, 314 of the rafters were blown down, after just having been set the day before. Discouraged, but yet determined, they picked themselves up, re-set the undamaged rafters, ordered more, and continued on. Through a snowy and blustery winter, the men worked on using torpedo heaters inside to keep the building warm. After many months and a great deal of hard work, the Ridge View Motor Lodge opened for business in May of 1989. That Thursday evening, the Ridge View had its first guests, two employees from the Kraft Food Company, in town on business.
