What it's like

No matter how you travel or who you are traveling with, you’ll find top-notch accommodations to suit your needs. Choose a mountain-chic guestroom or a fully stocked villa; you can’t go wrong. Villas include a gas fireplace, a private patio, and a full kitchen. All rooms feature pillow-top mattresses, plush linens, workspace, and fast WiFi.

Independent spirit

Settle into the relaxed pace of life at the lake.

Small touches

In addition to the traditional amenities, you’ll find plenty of unique options to sweeten your stay, like the community fire pit (with S’mores, naturally), afternoon cookies in the lobby, lawn games, and a seasonal saltwater pool.

Eat and drink

The Ridges Resort’s onsite restaurants showcase vibrant foods and local flavors. Enjoy farm-to-table cuisine at The Oaks Lakeside Kitchen, crafted from ingredients grown by local farms. Relax with a cocktail in the casual elegance of The Oaks Lounge. Unwind with drinks, casual fare, and the best vibes on the lake at the southern gastropub, Marina Station, or stroll over to Provisions Fine Goods & Apparel to stock up on your favorite craft beer, wine, and gourmet treats for an intimate evening on the balcony.

And more

Kids (and adults!) will flip for Splash Island, a floating obstacle course providing hours of high-energy fun. With a course for the big kids (7+) and one for the wee ones (4-7), the smiles and the fun never stop. Splash Island is known to tucker out kids and leads to an early bedtime, which means more time for parents to enjoy a peaceful glass of wine on their patio.
