We just returned from a 3 day visit to the Ridges. As stated in other reviews I am not sure who is writing the negative reviews because we loved this place. I have pretty high standards and for a lake/lodge retreat this is what I would have expected. We had a 1st floor lake facing room at the lodge. It had a nice little balcony with chairs which you can walk right down to the pier from. The double beds were smaller than I am used to so we called the front desk looking for a roll away bed. They did not have any. We went out to the marina and to walk around the property and were surprised when back at the room there was a rollaway bed. The front desk found one for us which I really appreciated. I found this a great family retreat. They had lawn activities for the kids, a large pier to fish from, a small salt water pool and a wonderful marina. We found the boat rentals affordable (less than other places we have been) and Lake Chatuge is a fun lake to ride around. We had a pontoon boat. The next day we rented a jet ski and that was fun too. The complimentary afternoon fresh baked cookies and evening smores were a great hit with the kids! What is nice is they keep baking so they never run out :) We will be back in the future for more fun at the Ridges.
