Amicalola Falls lodge description

When completed in 2007, Bear Ridge Lodge was appraised for over 2.5 million dollars. Nestled in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, the home is located only two miles from the spectacular Amicalola Falls, which is the largest water falls east of the Mississippi and cascades 729’. This 7,000 square foot luxury cabin home located on 25 acres of secluded forests is the ultimate setting for your next family vacation, corporate event or romantic get-away. This home was built in 2006 and is the perfect blend of Rustic Mountain living combined with the latest in luxury comfort. This lodge has everything from a fully stocked lake loaded with Bass and Bream (catch & Release Only), tree house, canoeing, pedal boat, hiking trails, WIFI open broadband Internet, a championship pool table and a 73” HD TV with satellite.

The lodge has 5 spacious bedrooms with 3 1/2 baths. The master bedroom has a spa shower with 6 massaging shower heads and the Lodge also has an infrared sauna with room for four. In all there are 3 King size beds, 1 Queen, 3 trundles with twin mattresses, and 3 inflatable Queen air mattresses. The lodge also has a portable 'pack and play' crib available for use.
There is a 7 person Hot Tub located on the deck outside the Master Bedroom for your enjoyment.
The great room has 20+ foot ceilings with open beams, a 53” fireplace and magnificent views of the falls. The gourmet kitchen has plenty of workspace and can seat 20+ people.

To make your stay even more special, there are covered decks that wrap around the front of the home with fantastic views of the falls and an outdoor fire ring to enjoy those wonderful nights. We include camp fires on your visit at no additional cost.

We provide a 'Pirate Treasure Hunt' for the kids that is fabulous. They walk all over the 25 acres solving clues to where the treasure is buried. They love it!

While this amazing home gives you all of the seclusion you could ever want, it is conveniently located just 2 miles from the Lodge at Amicalola Falls, which has a fantastic buffet 7 days a week. For the serious shopper, the North Georgia Premium Outlets are just 20 minutes away!!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: Hello! This is Randy Harris. I met my childhood sweetheart Rebecca Alisch when I was in the 10th grade. We married on my birthday in 1973 and also the same day when Becky graduated from Auburn University. We have been married for 40 wonderful years and blessed with 4 terrific children and now 4 fantastic grand children. It has been said, “If you count a man’s value in life by his family, then I am a billionaire!” I am living in the closest place to Heaven on Earth that I can imagine. We have 25 acres of mountain land located in North GA with a 3 acre lake looking up at a 700+ waterfall. We are surrounded by National Forest and have a beautiful log home. I also built a 1500 square foot barn with all the “man” toys that a guy could want. My philosophy in life has always been, “To treat the other person like you wanted to be treated.” To always tell the truth and there is right and wrong, good and evil and a Good Lord above us that one day we will answer to!'

We provide a 'Pirate Treasure Hunt' for the kids that is fabulous. They walk all over the 25 acres solving clues to where the treasure is buried. They love it! The kids can catch fish as fast as they can bait the hook. Catch and Release Only. Pedal boat and canoe are available for your enjoyment. We have had 43, 5 star reviews. Come see why!
