About Randy Harris

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. 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!'

Randy Harris purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Randy Harris chose Bent Tree

We have one of the most magnificent views of the mountains and Amicalola Falls. We are located only two miles from the base. This is one of the most beautiful tranquil places on earth. You instantly feel the magic when you arrive. With the abundance of wildlife to watch and the magnificent view of Amicalola Falls it's just a great place to relax and enjoy life.

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!

The kids can catch fish as fast as they can bait the hook.

Catch and Release Only. Pedal boat and canoe are available for your enjoyment.

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.

Great holiday destination

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the lodge over the long Thanksgiving weekend and had the most wonderful time!! There were 15 of us (6 adults, 6 teenagers [UGH!] and 3 children!!) There was something for everyone! The teenage (boys) spent the whole weekend fishing and hiking through the woods looking for signal trees and old moonshine stills (thanks Randy!)...we had a personal hiking trip from Becky up to the old cabin in the woods (be sure to ask her about it!) and we even got to hold some of Becky's chickens :) The little kids got to go on the cool Pirates treasure hunt, which is just PERFECT in the woods and we had the bonfire with some ghost stories sprinkled on top!
Randy and Becky went out of their way to provide everything we needed to pull off a Thanksgiving away from home, including 4000 trips to the store for us....just kidding...but it felt like it, huh Randy??? LOL!
The pictures of the lodge don't do it justice. As GREAT as the pics are...the lodge is better, the views are better and the serenity is better. Stop looking at other places to stay...STAY HERE!! Although we were at the lodge for Thanksgiving, it is, without doubt, an "anytime" destination and we're looking forward to trying to come back in the summer and catch it during a different season.
Thank you, Randy and Becky, for ALL that you did, for allowing people to rent this fabulous lodge and above all else, thank you for be your wonderful selves!!! MUAH!

Thanks for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the lodge the weekend before Thanksgiving this year and could not have been happier with our time. Throughout the weekend we had between 2 and 18 people at any given time and no matter how big or how small our party got, it always felt like a home away from home. If you want to sit, relax, and enjoy amazing scenic views, this is the place to be. If you want to party and raise hell in the mountains, you can do that too. Or, if you just want a change of pace where you can enjoy local history, friendly vibes, and spend some time with your loved ones, Randy and Becky's amazing lodge will accommodate your needs as well.

The property is incredible and is stocked with everything and anything you could possibly need during your stay. The lake offers tons of fun, the hot tub is great for relaxing, the pool table provides hours of indoor entertainment, and the kitchen is a cooks dream. GREAT FIRE PIT!!! This was a must have for my group, and the lodge's fire pit is one of a kind.

We will definitely be back, not only because of the property, but because of the wonderful property owners. I'm not pulling your leg when I tell you that my group was (and is) one of a kind. We are some hard partying, hard working, tattooed and pierced, young folks, but I cannot say enough nice things about Randy and Becky's patience, tolerance, and openness throughout our time at the lodge. We had a blast hanging out with these wonderful people and will look forward to doing so again in the future.

Of course there are many more nice things that could be said, but basically, if you're reading this review and thinking about booking this lodge, do it. Otherwise, if you wait too long, I might book it agian before you get a chance.

Owner's Response: Jack,
What can I say? Thank you so much for that unbelievable review. It is as good as the Pizza's you brought us. The Jack's Pizza & Wings crew will always be welcome here. It goes to show you, you can never judge a book by it's cover. Yes, you do hold the Lodge record for the most tattoos, body piercings, shots consumed, fantastic food and most booze consumed. We look forward to your return!

Wedding and Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We can only give five stars because the scale does not go to six! The venue was magnificent; a fantastic place for our families, from multiple states, to spend time getting acquainted prior to our wedding. Bear Ridge was the sanctuary from the chaos of wedding week. Randy and Becky were fantastic hosts! Their genuine hospitality, humor, and concern for our well being was a big part of the success of our stay. We felt like part of their family and intend to return!

Wonderful wedding venue and family retreat!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Bear Ridge Lodge to host our wedding guests and held the ceremony on site. It was such a beautiful venue to host the wedding -- the trees and the lake were spectacular and beautifully situated. Our family stayed together in the house and our out of town guests stayed nearby at Amicalola Falls Lodge. What made the stay and event so much more special was the family treatment from Randy and Becky Harris -- they are there to attend to every need or whim and truly enjoyed getting to know our family and friends. It was just magical -- the chickens and fresh eggs, guidance and assistance of an on-site "concierge," help with luggage, groceries...it is very friendly service. We will come back...in addition to a terrific stay and a fabulous wedding, we made great new friends!! It was perfection all the way through and through!!

What a beautiful wedding! The weather and the Fall colors were spectacular. I do not think anyone could ask for a more perfect day. Becky and I loved helping out and we too have a "New" family! We hope you plan on coming back soon.

The BEST

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home expecting a nice view and enough beds to accommodate our large family for a wedding. We never expected the hospitality, kindness, peacefulness and beauty this home and owners offered. We can't wait to go back. Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough.
