Property Details

Updated: Apr 17, 2015
5 Bedrooms, 4.5 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 4 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 4 King size beds, 1 Queen sofa bed, 3 trundles with twin mattresses, and 2 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 an one more on the way. 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.

Perfect Place to Enjoy Family and Friends

If you don't enjoy Bay Ridge Lodge, it's not Randy and Becky's fault! The place is fabulous, the property spectacular and your hosts make you feel welcome as soon as you step foot on the grounds. Made some everlasting memories with my 4 boys enjoying fishing, hiking, go karts and bonfires. Thanks Randy, it was awesome!

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
  • 5 of 5
One word, amazing! This tranquil yet adventurous utopia is exactly what we needed to get away from typical flow of city work. We took our parents for their 43rd wedding anniversary and had the time of our lives. From the paddle boat on the lake, touring the chicken coup with the kids, relaxing in the Jacuzzi, or walking the beautiful mountain-side trails, the lodging here is fantastic. The cabin itself is very spacious housing 20+ of my family members in which our favorite room was the kitchen (we love to eat)! Owners, Randy and Becky were very hospitable as well and are two of the kindest people you'll ever meet. Can't wait to return this summer!! Thank you!

Home away from home!

Could not have picked a better cabin to spend quality family time and celebrate parents 43rd anniversary. More importantly, we could not have chosen a better couple who shared their home with us. Thank you Randy and Becky for going above and beyond to ensure we had a memorable weekend.
