Modern Lakeside Lodge with Full-Service Marina for Boating & Fishing

A handmade wooden canoe is set atop a paneled shelf in the lobby lounge area of The Ridges Resort & Marina. It's a subtle reminder of the property's bond with nearby Lake Chatuge. Head from the lodge to the lake and you'll find the resort's 400-slip marina, where you can rent boats and fishing tackle, or just take a stroll along the shoreline.

The marina is the center of activity during the spring and summer. For group excursions, opt for a pontoon and fishing boat, or fly solo and check out the lake's quiet coves with a kayak or canoe.

The rolling, wooded hills of North Georgia's Blue Ridge create a border to the outside world in this area, which lends to an overall feeling of peaceful seclusion and an absence of segway traffic. In the main lodge, stone floors, overstuffed leather couches and natural wood create a homey-yet-refined atmosphere that radiates throughout the property.

In resort-view rooms, private balconies look out to either the lake or the surrounding hillsides. There are natural willow and oak furnishings in here, with a woodland color scheme of browns, greens, and golds. King or double beds are covered with soft pillows and quilted bedspreads.

After a day's adventure, you can stop by The Oaks restaurant, which serves local steaks, Georgia-coast shrimp scampi, and cedar-planked Appalachian Mountain trout.

Lake Chatuge, GA: Hiking and Fishing Amid Blue Ridge Forest

Located about two hours from Atlanta, The Ridges Resort & Marina is sandwiched between the Nantahala and the Chattahoochee National Forests. It's a fine spot to go hiking or organize group tree hugs in the wilderness.

If you walk up to the summit of Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest peak, you can see four different states. Nearby, it's possible to go fishing for trout all year long in the Hiwassee River. In the town of Hiawassee, charming galleries and stores display quilts and crafts by local artists and artisans.

We will surely return. The fresh baked cookies and s'mores are nice touches that are fondly remembered by all those who stay at the Ridges. We were not sure what to expect, and were very happy with our decision to buy the Groupon!
