I didnt really know what to expect. I saw a sold out Groupon and called in. The staff were happy to match the deal. I spoke to several staff members who were all very helpful and polite. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room and furnishings. Very comfy blankets and pillows. I was gone most of the day, but the grounds were pretty for what I could see. The lobby was an obvious place for social gatherings, there were always people there drinking the complementary tea, coffee, cider. The Oaks restaurant is walking distance and was nice although was very busy and I wished we had made a RSVP so that we didnt have to wait. $12 Chicken alfredo was excellent, premier beers were $5 and not bad either. It was nice coming into the hotel from the freezing outdoors into the warmth of the fireplace in the lobby. We just plopped down on a comfy leather couch and had some champagne that we brought. We had a quiet night sleep for sure. All in all, there is a lot to do nearby, since we only had 1 night we left much to do on the next visit. We will be happy to stay at The Ridges again. Thank you!

I'm glad that we were able to "pleasantly surprise" you during your visit with us. We wish you could have stayed longer! I'm delighted that you enjoyed the quality of our accommodations and that you were able to relax and enjoy the Lodge common areas and the warmth of our fireplaces during these winter days. Thank you for patronizing The Oaks as well. We do have a steady flow of business and, though reservations are recommended, we are always happy to accommodate our Lodge guests so I'm glad you joined us and enjoyed your evening. Please plan to stay longer next time so that you can enjoy many of the other activities and amenities we can offer you!

Our stay at the Ridges was very nice. The lobby will take your breath away! It is fabulous! Views of the Lake are gorgeous! The rooms are very clean, but no cable channels. (no big deal, usually nothing on anyway). There is a movie theater across the street , if you start to have withdraws. Very cozy on a snowy weekend ! They also have a bon-fire with Smores each night!!!

Room Tip: it was only a $20 upgrade to get a room on the lake, worth it !!!

I'm glad you were able to capture one of our rare Groupon offers to come and enjoy The Ridges over a snowy weekend! We love that we can provide such a cozy setting on a winter day - we strive to make our guests feel at home, with numerous activities and amenities, such as the theater you mentioned, very close by. The s'mores have become a nightly favorite for our guests. We hope to see you back again very soon!

very relaxing place, lodge area very homey. staff friendly. we had deluxe room facing lake, what a view. this lodge has spent alot of money on the interior of the rooms. each bed had many layers of pillows, etc. the lamps,and decor were all upgrades. nothing "standard". even the bathroom fixtures were the newer "dark bronze" including the towel rack. This lodge has gone out of their way to provide a "quality" package to their guests. The inn had fireplaces downstairs as well as a cozy fireplace upstairs that you could read, play cards or just relax. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone. It's close enough to several hiking areas, and if you're lucky enough to plan around the Georgia State Fair you will love that as well ! Beautiful town.

Room Tip: choose room facing lake if possible.... plan ahead this place books up quickly !

Quaint, beautiful, and cozy. Warm and friendly. Quiet and peaceful. Even in the dead of winter it was beautiful. I hope the lake waters rise as it was crazy low while we were there though still very pretty.

We are glad that you enjoyed our cozy and inviting setting! We all agree that, even in the midst of the winter season, it is a wonderful time to enjoy the lodge and the beautiful views. Lake Chatuge is managed by the Tennessee Valley Authority, and they intentionally lower the lake levels in the winter, via the Chatuge Dam, so that dock repairs and maintenance may take place before the boating season begins. As we move into the spring season, the lake levels will be restored. I hope that you will have the chance to come back and see us again as the weather warms up, so that you can also enjoy the spectacular other seasons and some time on the lake.

Our group had five families needing to make immediate accomodations due to a funeral. The Ridges had a 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom villa available which also happen to be in the same unit. The villas were very clean and spacious. The 4 bedroom villa had a large upstairs bedroom/bath which also worked as a spacious game room (pool table included). The kids were teenagers which allowed them a place to sleep and hang out. The living space in the 4 bedroom was ample in allowing us (15) to gather and visit with each other.
The continental breakfast at the Lodge is just that - continental. The area was also a little crowded with people coming down and making there way through the breakfast area. We preferred staying in our villa and do our own breakfast.
Vickie, at the front desk, was wonderful and made sure our stay was enjoyable. If back in the area, we will stay here again.

I am so sorry that your reason for visiting The Ridges Resort was for a funeral service, but am so glad that we had the Villas needed to accommodate all of your family's needs. We are fortunate to have a nice variety of two-four bedroom Villas for guests who need that added space, kitchen areas, etc. It sounds like it worked well for your family. I will certainly share your kind comments with Miss Vickie as well. She and all of our Guest Services team strive to assure your stay is wonderful, no matter what the occasion. I do hope that you will be able to return under happier circumstances soon so that you can relax and enjoy some of the many amenities and services that we can provide for you.
