A last minute decision that it was too hot for a beach weekend brought us to the Ridges Resort; what luck that we found such a great place thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. Loved our lakeview room on the ground floor. Easy access to the lake and s'mores and a perfect spot for reading every afternoon. The resort staff was... More

Twenty years ago, on October 31, 1994, we desperately needed a haven to find solace, comfort, relaxation, peace of mind, enjoyment of nature and the comforts of home! Our friend and neighbor, Shirley, a nurse, recommended a wonderful place that she had visited. At that time, it was called the Fieldstone Inn! We took her advice, traveling 110 miles from... More

Grounds are immaculate. The view is spectacular. Location enables day trips into mountain attractions with only short scenic drives. Rooms are well appointed. Front desk personnel are courteous and efficient.

We spent the weekend of July 18th at the Ridges along with some friends of ours. Though it was raining most of the weekend we still had a great time. We attended the North Georgia Festival and Vickie (front desk) recommended a great steakhouse (The Copper Door) when we wanted to venture out. Saturday night we hung out around the... More

The location of the Ridges is outstanding but they desperately need to upgrade the rooms (especially the mattresses),bathrooms/balconies. Until that time, they should not charge over $ 200.00/night. From a luxurious resort we would expect that the wallpaper in the rooms do not peel. Also the ripped furniture in the lounge should be replaced. The front desk staff is pseudo-friendly... More

Thank you for your review. I was unaware we had a problem with the lobby furniture and I will have my team look at it! As far as updating the rooms, they were redecorated 4 years ago. We are in the process of replacing the matresses this year. We hope to have them all replaced by this time next year.... More
