Property Details

Updated: May 26, 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.

Southern Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
With 10 adults and five grandchildren (5 and under) in tow, we converged on Bear Ridge for an extended weekend reunion. From the outset and Randy's entertaining "campus tour", we were treated with old fashioned southern hospitality, and it continued throughout the weekend. The nightly campfire was a treat, and our hosts went out of their way to make sure we were well cared for - and showed grace & patience necessary when you open your beautiful home to young children. The chickens, feeding the fish, and the treehouse were all smashing hits with the little ones. Picturesque, restful, quiet - wonderful memories... We're already making plans to come back...

Favorite Georgia Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Driving up to Bear Ridge Lodge, we were impressed with a breathtaking view of both the lodge and all of its surroundings. Becky and Randy were absolutely amazing hosts, and our kids loved the time that they spent with us showing us the baby chicks and ducks. They were also very helpful in starting a fire for us each night, and helping us with anything we could need to call them for. We definitely hope to be back again soon! Already missing it!

Southern comfort at it's finest

Southern comfort at it's finest
  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a weekend roughing it in the woods, with no running water and questionable sleeping arrangements, this is NOT the lodge for you. Randy and Becky have created the perfect place to indulge in all of the beauty of the outdoors while remaining comfortable in the luxury of their king beds, hot tub, and sauna. From the moment you step foot on their property you are treated like family, and the hosts make it clear that they are available for ANYTHING you may need. 5 stars does not do it justice, can't wait to visit again.

Perfect Place to Enjoy Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5
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!
