Our visit was only for one night. Front desk was very helpful checking us in. The grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed the smores they had that night. Sitting out by the fire pit looking out over the water. Our room was very comfortable and we actually slept until almost 10:00. It is just an overall great place to stay. Will... More

The Ridges Resort & Marina had so much to offer. The view of Lake Chatuge, the mountains, and the grounds with so many flowers in bloom, are breathtaking. The rooms are very clean & the staff with their southern hospitality, make you feel special. We loved exploring the lake in their pontoon boat. The Blue Otter Restaurant at the marina... More

The mountains are so beautiful and the view was breathtaking from almost any place on the resort. The service was fantastic. There was always someone there to meet your needs. The food service at our meetings was very good and the set up was completed quickly and efficiently.

I stayed at the the Ridges for 3 nights for a business meeting. The location and scenery are beautiful and peaceful. My room was clean, but the bed and pillows were horrible. I felt like I was sleeping on the floor. Also, each time I flushed my toilet, the water ran in it for another 30 minutes. We had a... More

We choose our bedding trying to please the most people possible. You mentioned that the bed was hard. If you read through some other reviews you will see where guests said the beds are to... More

This is a beautiful property and the lake views are breathtaking. The staff were supper friendly and helpful. My negative is the sleeping room. The bed was HARD, the bathroom needs a major update, my bathtub had the old-school slip pads and it looked disgusting, like it was harboring all sort of bacteria. I suggest for the price, you put...

The rooms however need some TLC. For a resort that charges up to $$$+. The bathrooms really need some help (I have photos and as soon as I can figure out how... More

What an incredible time I had for my birthday. Beginning with the warm welcome from the staff and the beautiful lake view, many memories were made. Clean room overlooking the lake and a restful time relaxing by the fire. Delicious breakfast to start each morning, ending with our peaceful time by the fire pit enjoying s'mores!
