      Beautiful Stay

      My family thoroughly enjoyed staying at Bear Ridge Lodge. The children enjoyed feeding the chickens, ducks and goats. There is so much to do around this area. A beautiful home that was perfect for our family weekend.

      5/5 Excellent

        Welcome, Friends!

        Randy and Becky welcomed us like family. Randy is a comedian for sure and they were so helpful in making my stay (which included a wedding) enjoyable and memorable. They helped us with whatever we needed and Randy even manned the grill for us! I asked Becky to let the goats out to walk with us down the road to get married and it was the cutest thing ever! We left there feeling like family. They take a lot of pride in their home and we definitely plan to go back! Our weekend stay was nothing short of magical.

        5/5 Excellent

          Wonderful home and owners

          We had a fabulous visit at Bear Ridge Lodge. Becky and Randy were extremely accommodating and the house was very clean. The kids had a fun time on the lake and with the farm animals. We will definitely be back.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great stay and helpful owner.

            We really enjoyed our stay at this property. We had a large group of guys come down to celebrate a buddy getting married. The house was more than adequate to accommodate our large group and the home is very very nice. The owner was very insightful and communicative about the check-in and also about the surrounding area. The owner stays above the garage which is connected to the house. He would come in each morning and clean up behind us from the night before. Being a group of guys, we weren't exactly the cleanest, so it was nice waking up to a clean place.

            5/5 Excellent

              Great for large groups

              This was a great place for us! We had 20 in our party and it fit us pretty well. The last 5 or so people were in air beds but it was not a big deal. Most rooms were large enough to put airbeds in them. Otherwise they are near the pool table. With that said, there was still plenty of space everywhere. Quite, safe, tranquil place! We'll be coming back again soon!
