My first impression was very good! We checked in during a cold drizzly rain, and were greeted with a blazing fire in the lobby fireplace, warm cider and a basket of fresh cookies in the lobby. Our room was large, if outdated, and there was mildew in the bathroom and a mildew smell in the room, but the smell dissolved...

So I originally wrote a negative review of this property, which I noted that I hated to do because we were treated well here, and the overall effect of the lodge, especially the lobby area, is really homey and nice. The cider and cookies in the afternoon were great, there are s'mores in the evening (we weren't able to be...

Although the rooms need some updating, which I hear is happening soon, The Ridges is the perfect place for a group gathering. With breathtaking views and the nicest staff around, it was everything we wanted for our recent family get together.

The resort was 'lodge-themed' with comfortable beds, cozy rooms, and nice views of the lake. The lake was well below normal levels but it was still beautiful. I'd like to come back sometime as husband and wife to spend a fall weekend here. The trees are gorgeous in the fall. The drive to get there was also very pretty. The...

This is my second visit and found the staff to be friendly and helpful again. Due to the drought and North Carolina fires, they were not able to offer the fire pit with some mores like my last trip. This was something I had looked forward to enjoying again! I got the King bed room, which was much more comfortable...

Great staff and a very comfortable atmosphere! Great view on the Fall colors on the lake. Rooms are a very nice size with cozy furnishings and clean. Loved the coffee and bar area in the main lobby! Nice warm double fire place with a huge lunge area with stunning views!
