We were at The Ridges for five nights for the Moonshine Cruize-in at the end of July. It is one of the most hospitable hotels/resorts we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Vickie and the ladies at the desk are warm and friendly, the breakfast is always great, and those cookies in the afternoon are delightful! And, to... More

I can't say enough good things about the Ridges. From the moment we checked in until we left, we felt so welcomed it was like being with family. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful...we were traveling with small kids, so it was nice to have a great selection. The kids did use the pool which... More

The staff was so nice to us and very accommodating! Thank you, Teresa, for helping us with our reservation. The grounds were beautifully kept and Lake Chatuge is absolutely beautiful. After a long week of work, it was so nice to spend our weekend at the Ridges ... we will definitely be back

We recently stayed at one of the properties at the Ridges in Georgia. We brought a group and also reserved a meeting room. We had an extremely unsatisfactory experience, and I would like to speak to the owner at the earliest convenience. It took over an hour to check in because our reservations were not done correctly. The employee that... More

Beautiful facilities right on the water. At night they set out makings for smores around the fire pit. Be sure and confirm your room the day before you arrive as our room was given to someone else and the staffer we booked the conference through refused to take our calls since she was "having her hair did" that day. We... More

This resort hotel is in a perfect location: mountain and lake vistas with convenient access to a marina on Lake Chatuge. A limited breakfast is served, but they have a restaurant next to the marina that has excellent food and service. The hotel staff is very accommodating and very helpful in directing you to local attractions.

Really a great place, but lacking a few things to be a real "resort". We loved our two night stay and will return again in September. My wish list: -Please try to re-open the Oaks Restaurant; it is beautiful and relaxing. -The little "hole in the wall" attempt at a bar, with no one who knows anything about bartending just... More

During our stay at a VRBO house in the mountains, we learned we couldn't extend our visit, but we weren't ready to go home. We drove around a great deal of Lake Chatuge looking for a place to spend the weekend. Nothing felt quite right and we were about to give up when we saw the sign for The Ridges.... More
