Property Details

Updated: Oct 2, 2014
5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 20) Fantastic Views.

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!! You are also only minutes away from some of the North Georgia Mountains premier apple houses and fun-filled pumpkin patches. You are just 90 miles north of Atlanta and 70 miles south of Chattanooga.

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 41 wonderful years and blessed with 4 terrific children and now 5 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!'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bear Ridge Lodge experience by Ron McNeil group: I am from beautiful Destin, Florida in the Panhandle and have a ranch near Tallahassee. Our group was ecstatic about the hospitality and beauty of Bear Ridge Lodge--and having the use of a 7,000 sq. ft. Log home. I have visited multiple times and the joy, relaxation, and friendly environment is always a pleasure. It is THE Mountain Retreat Experience. Randy and Becky are consummate hosts and a joy to know. What a beautiful setting for a vacation or conference--I have been there for both types of experiences. Fun and Laughter are in abundance every day as well as times of quite comfort and peace.

The BEST

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home expecting a nice view and enough beds to accommodate our large family for a wedding. We never expected the hospitality, kindness, peacefulness and beauty this home and owners offered. We can't wait to go back. Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough.

Fantastic getaway

I thought we were a millions miles away from everywhere, but we were only a short car ride from all the best in the north Georgia mountains. Four days of the very best that lodge and the mountains had to offer. Can't wait to go back!

Biking and Hiking

  • 5 of 5
Bear Ridge Lodge is the perfect place for a North Georgia mountain get away. The lodge has 5 bedrooms, with a master bedroom that is luxurious. Plenty of room for all 7 of us. The lodge is beautifully decorated in mountain themes, the kitchen has everything you need to cook great meals after hiking and biking all day. Randy and Becky are perfect hosts, providing answers to any question you can imagine. I can't forget about the firepit and sitting on the porch overlooking their lake, the mountains and Amacalola Falls. We will be back in 2015!

MUCH NEEDED FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was the most relaxing vacation we have been on. The property, amenities and the owners spared nothing. We have stayed at several vacation resorts over the years and WOW, this one was hard to beat. There were so many activities and attractions in the surrounding area, but we had a better time just sitting around the house, swimming, fishing, and becoming closer to Randy and Becky. You both were awesome. I loved the early morning coffee on the porch while watching the geese. Rest assured that we will come again in the near future. There were 16 of us on this trip and they all agreed, this will be our permanent vacation spot. That is if you will have us, lol. We also came to love their three dogs, Irwin, Lexi and Harley. While we were there the postman ran over Harley and he had to have surgery. Hope his recovery is a fast one. Thanks again Randy and Beck, and for better or worse, you two or stuck with us, and Hazel said she will be headed your way soon to pick up her big table. The Kersey Family.

Family Reunion Stay

  • 5 of 5
Great Experience. Recommend staying at least 1 week. There is plenty to do for all ages. We fished, hiked, went tubing, canoeing, exploring in the nearby towns. Be sure to check out Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville. We went there several times to race Go Karts (that run between 50-60 mph with good hills and turns. Randy and Becky were great and we enjoyed the campfire with smores. We also saw a bear across the lake on our first evening. A great stay and great location.
