    Best day/ weekend ever!

    I absolutely cannot say enough good things about the Ridges Resort. From the first time we viewed the space and meeting with Andrea Allen, we knew this is where we wanted to spend our special weekend. The grounds are beautiful, with so much for the guests to do, and the rooms/ venue spaces are newly updated and so nice.

    Andrea (Andy) was a huge reason why we chose The Ridges. For a year and a half, she assisted us with everything, never letting a question go unanswered. When it was finally time for our special day, Andy made sure everything went absolutely perfect! She even hurt her foot before the ceremony, but pushed through until everything was good at our reception like an absolute boss. She was amazing and will make sure your day is perfect!

    The rest of the Ridges Resort staff was also incredible. They made sure my now husband and I, as well as our families, were happy and having a great time all weekend. The staff that assisted with the rehearsal dinner and ceremony were also wonderful- they always made sure Kyle and I had drinks in our hand, ate enough, and even accommodated our special requests.

    Again, I cannot say enough good things about The Ridges Resort on Lake Chatuge- this is definitely the place to have your destination wedding!

    Amazing Venue

    Our wedding at the Ridges Resort was amazing. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is so serene. Our wedding guest are still raving about the food, staff and the event as a whole. Our ceremony was held on the lake pier and the cocktail hour/reception took place in the Red Banks Ballroom. The weather was perfect and we could not have chosen a better venue to host our event.
