Suntex Marinas acquires The Ridges Marina

Suntex Marinas, an owner and operator of marina properties, announced that it has acquired The Ridges Marina. Under the new ownership this North Georgia property on Lake Chatuge will undergo extensive reinvestment in the coming year.

“We are really looking forward to being part of the Suntex family of marinas,” said Michael Kennedy, general manager of The Ridges Marina. “Our team is already working hard with Suntex management to bring about several exciting enhancements to the property in 2017. Our guests are sure to have an experience of a lifetime during their next visit.”

The Ridges Marina encompasses over 300 covered slips and the facility includes a fuel dock, ships store for incidentals, and pontoon rentals. The property also has an on-site restaurant – Lake Chatuge Lighthouse – that is popular with vacationers and locals. The 250-seat, casual dining restaurant and sports bar is the only waterfront restaurant on the lake. There is also a resort adjacent to the marina complete with tennis courts, a fitness center and pool.

“The Ridges Marina is truly a beautiful location with fantastic amenities and unlimited potential,” said Bryan Redmond, founding principal of Suntex. “Georgia is a special place, full of pristine vacation destinations, we already have two marinas on Lake Allatoona a little further West. The Ridges offers guests southern charm and a full-service marina destination. We look forward to adding the full Suntex experience for future guests to enjoy.”

Located on the shores of Lake Chatuge and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, The Ridges Marina offers guests a scenic vacation locale. From fishing and boating to wakeboarding, the North Georgia marina, a two-hour drive from Atlanta, Greenville, Asheville or Chattanooga, has several amenities for visitors.
