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’.

The lodge was wonderful. Everything that we needed was there for the family. Great can't fire for roasting marshmallows. Randy Mbeki were great cious host. Anything with these as their. Definitely plan on making more trips.
Randy let me know about all the attractions in the area in advanced which helped greatly in our planning of activities. The home was beautiful and very clean inside. Even though the outside of the house looks like a cabin once inside the kitchen, bathrooms, living room, and bedrooms were very modern and spacious. The lake in front of the home and the rest of the property make for absolutely beautiful scenery from the porch in the mornings and evenings. Randy & Becky were awesome and made you feel like family. I would definitely recommend anyone with a large family to go see for themselves.
Our family recently stayed at Bear Ridge Lodge for our wedding weekend, and we could not be any happier with the cabin, surroundings, but most importantly our hosts! Randy and Becky really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay, including providing coffee from their own pantry for our caffeine deprived gang in the wee hours! Everyone loved the canadian geese, tom the cat, the baby chicks, goats, and naked neck chickens, such a cool and unique experience for us folks from the city. Accommodations were very clean, and the surrounding area and views are gorgeous. This place is a gem. Thank you Randy and Becky, we will remember our stay and your hospitality!
Our four families stayed at Bear Ridge Lodge last weekend for the peak of the fall foliage. The property is gorgeous. The views from the deck out over the pond and surrounding mountains provided a much-needed break from the Atlanta traffic and our otherwise busy lives. The overall layout worked well for our group- four bedrooms that provided each adult couple with their own space (along with some of the bedrooms having trundles for the little ones to stay with mom and dad without having to share the bed) and a fifth bedroom with trundles that worked perfectly for our four tween/teen girls. We are big cooks so the huge kitchen was a real bonus. The 73” tv in the main living space was wonderful for watching football; however, there was not a second common area for putting on a game so some of our party ended up watching their game in the master bedroom. The owners, Randy and Becky, live on site above the garage. This works wonderfully for when you need help figuring out how to work the grill/hot tub/fans/lights/anything! Randy was fantastic in that regard. Always helpful and offering multiple times to get us anything we needed. However, if you’re looking for a place with complete solitude with no owner on property this might not be the place for you. We didn’t mind but just thought it should be noted!
We hosted a large group for a college football weekend and absolutely had a blast. The lodge is fantastic with all the amenities you could ever want and masterfully decorated. The lodge was extremely clean and well stocked. The hosts, Randy and Becky, were great and made sure everything was going smoothly. We highly recommend Bear Ridge for large groups.
We had 10 guys up for a golf weekend and we loved the cabin. Owner helped with anything we needed. Would go back!
My wife and I decided to book this lodge during our wedding week in order to spend a few days with the family beforehand. Bear Ridge Lodge was the perfect location! Randy, the owner, was the life of the party and made the week even more memorable. He has taken such care in building the lodge, and has ensured that everything works well. There was more than enough beds for everyone, the jacuzzi was a big hit, the pool table was used extensively and the big lounge area was brilliant. We had a very memorable week here and hope to return for family reunions in the future.
We had a great time. The property and home are amazing. Host was very accommodating and helpful when needed. Home could use a good cleaning but overall we would not hesitate to stay here again. Overall it was a perfect accommodation for a large family vacation. Looking into planning another visit in the summer. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Harris!!!
This trip was fantastic. We took our entire company away on a retreat for 2019 planning and team building. Bear Ridge Lodge could not have been better. We did the Zip Line tours, went to a local winery and had a blast in the cabin. It was big enough for the whole team and had everything we needed. We would absolutely stay here again. Randy and his wife live above the garage, but outside of giving us a tour and helping with trash, we never saw them. They gave us space to bond as a team and were fantastic hosts! They are extremely helpful and its clear they love sharing their home with guests. Excited to go again soon!
We loved our stay in the cabin. The place was very nice, clean, comfortable, and roomy. There were 15 of us overnight, and we all slept comfortably. Plenty of stuff to do in the area, and a great view of the falls. Thanks Randy for such a great time!
