About the property

6 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, 24 Sleeps / Beds 24

On top of the rolling hills of the Rich Mountains, overlooking the beautiful Blue Ridge Lake, you will find the welcoming serenity of the Ridges Over Lake Lodge. From the moment you drive up the paved driveway in the private gated community to see this impressive Canadian log structure with a welcoming willow swing on the massive front porch, you immediately know that a very special experience awaits you.

Ridges Over Lake is a place of rustic elegance and luxurious comfort immersed in the midst of peaceful and majestic beauty of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Here, you can find an escape in the healing serenity of nature and enjoy stunning views of the lake and the mountains from the comfort of your two-level deck. Let your eyes take a flight with the eagles or have them follow the intricate dance of the falling leaves. Gather your friends and family around the fire pit to roast the marshmallows, share music and stories, and enjoy the scenic views.

Take a nature hike on the extensive Appalachian trails starting literally in your backyard, and return to find the comfort of a luxurious hot shower, hearty meal, and a soft comfortable bed. Enjoy a variety of outdoor adventures such as helicopter and ATV rides, mountain biking and horseback riding, or take a zipline canopy tour in the midst of the world-renown ASKA Adventure Area.

The water sports enthusiasts can immerse themselves in numerous activities such as boating, rafting, tubing, canoeing, and kayaking. A number of flowing rivers, streams and lakes in the area of Blue Ridge offers plenty of opportunity for fly fishing in the Trout Capital of Georgia.

This private Lodge is located only 15 minutes from the charming town of Blue Ridge, where you can enjoy fast food or fine dining, antique shopping, and apple picking at the famous Mercier Orchards, visit a local winery, or take a train ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway.

Ridges Over Lake Lodge is a three level 6-bedroom,

As you head downstairs to the terrace level, you will find a room equipped with a 8ft rustic billiards table, another room with a ping pong table, and a Fireplace Suite where you can relax on a comfortable sofa, enjoy the crackle of fire in a remote controlled gas-stove fireplace, read a book or catch a favorite show on a flat-screen TV with satellite cable and external HDMI connection. The queen-size sleeper sofa can comfortably accommodate additional overnight guests if needed.

Pass through a small private hallway into your own separate bedroom furnished with plush king-size bed and equipped with a pull-out twin sleeper. The bedroom has a full bath, and a step-out access onto the lower level covered porch which makes for its own special area.

The entire terrace level is surrounded by open windows providing easy access to the expansive covered porch with large gas grill, and plenty of seating areas to welcome the togetherness with friends and family and to share the scenic views and many special moments.

Stepping down from the lower deck to the ground level, you will find a very special viewing terrace with a built-in fire pit where you can relax and enjoy the bird watching or star gazing under the open skies.

Second Year in a Row

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, we have enjoyed this Lodge. It's so spacious and warm. We lucked out this year (2017) and got at least 11" of snow. I guess you have to be careful what you wish for.

Thanks again for sharing your lodge.

Family Reunion in Blue Ridge

  • 4 of 5

If you want to wake up each day feeling like you are in a painting this is the place for you. The house is magnificent, and the owner is accommodating and very responsive. We had a Thanksgiving family reunion with 17 adults and 7 children, there was plenty of room (we did bring air mattresses just in case you should bring a pad for pull outs but you already know that right) They really thought of everything in terms of at the house activities -table pool, ping pong, board games, poker table, fire pit, air hockey, foos ball, ect...understanding since you are literally at the top of the mountain the drive requires you to have a car and nerves that are up for the task. Worth It!! If there is any downside it would be the cleaning not really up to par with a house rental, it was disappointing on many levels, so the owner might want to look for a different crew. The thing I personally am always concerned with is HOT WATER - No worries! The men in the group were concerned with the WIFI and TV situation ( Big Football weekend) but seriously don't go to the mountains of Blue Ridge to watch TV the surrounding area is much more entertaining. We had an awesome time at this house and sat around fantasizing about owning one just like it someday, but the location does lend itself to a group who is not looking to leave often (not that you will need to). The town is worth the venture out, but plan accordingly :) Highly recommend booking this home! The 4 stars just reflects cleaning otherwise 5 all the way.

Specatular Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay, with great friends and great fun! Spectacular views from the top porch! So much room in the house, with lots of things to do in the game room. Would not change anything, but would be nice to have more TV's, especially in the great room, as there was limited space for all of us to watch the football games downstairs. Also, couldn't find a hair dryer nor iron/ironing board - would be great to have at least one. Thank you!

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cabin secluded in the mountains look no further. This cabin is awesome for a large family. Everyone in our group absolutely loved it. There is something to do for all age groups and it was very clean and well kept. We cant wait to go back again next year. The owner is very responsive as well.

Amazing House for large families & groups

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this place. The house and the settings are spectacular. Lots of space for kids to play, the lodge has everything you can possible need to spend a great week. All in good quality and great look, with great attention to details. For such a large capacity, wi-fi connectivity was not enough but I consider that a minor issue once you have decided to get away from the city!

It takes a while to get to the property through the non-paved access road, but it is clearly worth it! Excellent for large groups getaways and nature lovers! Great house indications from the owner!
