A Georgia Resort with Southern Charm and Lakeside Tranquility

Just 75 miles from Atlanta, The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee, one of the most stunning lake resorts in Georgia, transports guests to a place far away from daily cares and pressures, and families to a place of renewed connection. Cradled by verdant hills where Georgia pines tower to the sky, it is little wonder that the family born to this land called it “Linger Longer.” For once guests arrive at our luxury hotel; they yearn to stay, whether to test their mettle on five championship golf courses, melt the makings for s’mores over a glowing fire pit, discover there are more fish per square foot than any lake in Georgia, or explore the uncommon shops in nearby antebellum towns. Dining inspires with locally infused flavors, as do spa treatments that harness the power of Georgia’s natural bounty. Options to be active are omnipresent, as are quiet spaces to let one’s thoughts drift in and out. Southern charm and stunning tranquility make this luxury resort a true gem, treasured by those who appreciate the magnificence of nature and the joy of simply letting go.
