Give as a Gift

Modern Lakeside Lodge with Fine Dining and Full-Service Marina

The Ridges Resort & Marina sits on the shores of Lake Chatuge, surrounded by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Its setting and agreeable climate make it a popular place for outdoor activities year-round: A 400-slip marina is the center of activity during warmer months, when you can rent pontoon boats, kayaks, and canoes. You can also go fishing off the lakefront pier, hike the nearby ridges, or brush up on your tennis skills. You’re never disconnected from nature at the lodge, even when inside—resort-view rooms feature private balconies, some with mountain views.

The resort’s outdoor fire pit is a nice spot to commune with nature while roasting marshmallows for s’mores that are included in this deal. For more substantial eats, head to The Oaks on Lake Chatuge, which serves farm-to-table Southern cuisine. Signature dishes include Georgia shrimp ‘n’ grits, blackened North Carolina rainbow trout, and locally sourced filet mignon, served in a wood-paneled dining room or on the waterfront patio.

Lake Chatuge, Georgia: Hiking and Fishing amid Blue Ridge Forest

Located about two hours from Atlanta, The Ridges Resort & Marina is sandwiched between the Nantahala and Chattahoochee National Forests. It's a fine spot to go hiking or mountain biking, and you can access a number of scenic trails within 5 miles of the resort. If you walk up to the summit of Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest peak, you can see four states. You can also fish for trout in the nearby Hiwassee River any time of year.

In the town of Hiawassee, charming galleries and stores display quilts and crafts by local artists and artisans. A handful of wineries in the area offer tastings of small-production wines in intimate countryside tasting rooms.
