A Boutique Inn. A Craft Brewery. A Horse Ranch
Lost Ridge is all three.
The Lost Ridge Inn, Brewery & Ranch is the very first of its kind in Georgia. Being travel designers & avid wanderers ourselves, we decided to create a distinctive destination with an atmosphere and comfort that we often seek on our own journeys.
Nestled in the tranquil village of Qedeli, Lost Ridge unites a boutique six-room hotel with a three-barrel microbrewery and an outdoor fire kitchen, a horse ranch and a terrace cafe, restored local houses we call Archaeology Suite and the cozy Piruza Cottage. We plant, grow and harvest produce in our various permaculture gardens and source ingredients from local family homesteads, farmer’s markets as well as forgae to create traditional cusine with a modern spin for healthy & tasty gastronomic experiences.
Situated on a lovely crest overlooking Alazani Valley and the rolling patchwork hills of Magaro, we are close enough to comfortably stroll to Georgia’s revered Bodbe Monastery and the charming town of Sighnaghi, yet far away from the beaten path to savor a rural experience. Here you can tune into the nature under the light of the sun or the radiance of the moon, gaze at the sparkling stars or the beaming embers of fire, listen to the singing birds and chirping of the crickets, sipping a pint of farmhouse style craft beer or a glass of traditional natural wine.
Uniting our passions & interests, over the years we created a place that has become a home away from home for us, but most importantly for our guests. And we would love to share the tranquil and memorable Lost Ridge experience with you.
The Lost Ridge Experience
Lost Ridge Brewing offers a rotating selection of natural craft beers brewed on site and served on tap and in the bottle. We create beer with our own well water, a diverse array of hops and grains, plus occasional local Georgian honey, spices and fruits grown in our own nearby orchard. We craft and age (in our own on-site beer cave) small-batch farmhouse style ales reflective of the wildness of this Georgian village setting.
Relaxing & Exploring
Imagine taking a nap in a hammock big enough for two in the yard. Imagine strolling through the great outdoors on a two kilometer jaunt to charming Signagi. Imagine riding horses from nearby Living Roots Ranch down to the vineyards of Tibaani. The Lost Ridge is all about slowing down and finding relaxation. In the midst of enjoying natural ales, fire cooked foods and stunning views; you may not ever want to leave.
A Fire Kitchen
Our handcrafted ales complement The Fire Kitchen’s menu of local specialties, prepared with seasonal ingredients and in an open outdoor kitchen allowing you to see the chef cooking with wood fire. Our menu changes seasonally as we play with ingredients harvested from private farms and small local producers found in the village markets of the amazingly agriculturally rich region of Kakheti.
Each guestroom at the Lost Ridge Inn is unique. Room design blends artisanal ethnic styles with locally handcrafted wooden furniture to create your personal refuge. Every room has a private covered terrace featuring a view of either the Greater Caucasus Mountains, or the rolling patchwork hills of Magaro. A stay at the Inn comes with a sumptuous breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
