Bent Tree Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 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 3 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 3 King size beds, 1 Queen, 3 trundles with twin mattresses, and 3 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.

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.

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 40 wonderful years and blessed with 4 terrific children and now 4 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

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.

We have had 43, 5 star reviews. Come see why!

FAMILY REUNION STAY

  • 5 of 5
Great Experience. Recommend staying at least 1 week. There is plenty to do for all ages. We fished, hiked, went tubing, canoeing, exploring in the nearby towns. Be sure to check out Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville. We went there several times to race Go Karts (that run between 50-60 mph with good hills and turns. Randy and Becky were great and we enjoyed the campfire with smores. We also saw a bear across the lake on our first evening. A great stay and great location.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
We brought our graduating seniors from our church youth group. It was a trip for them to let them know how much we cared about them and will miss them as they go off to college. The lodge was a perfect place. We had plenty to do. The pool table and games were perfect during down time. We also had a lot of fun catching fish, using the canoe and paddle boat. Amicalola falls is right around the corner. Literally 5-10 minutes from the lodge. It was convenient and a fun thing to do to kill time. Randy and Becky are great host. Anything and everything we needed they were right on top of. The first night we were there, they even started the camp fire and then made s'mores for us. Great host! You will love your time here. It is a beautiful place!

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
I spent three amazing nights at Bear Ridge Lodge with family members from three different states. This was the most relaxing vacation I have been on. The property, amenities and the owners left nothing to be desired. Every one of the 17 people in our party, from 2 years old to seniors had a blast. I am going to miss my morning coffee on the porch listening to nature while getting lost in the post card view of the mountains and the lake. Thank you Randy and Becky for awesome family memories.

RELAXATION AT ITS FINEST

  • 5 of 5
The lodge was amazing and nothing like I expected which made it an even more welcome surprise. There were so many activities and attractions but in all honesty we had just as much fun hanging around the cabin and relaxing with wonderful conversation and beautiful scenery. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a relaxing or adventure filled getaway. Its worth the travel and money for such serenity! We thank you so much for your hospitality and ease of a fun filled weekend! Truly, we had an amazing time.
