If your idea of a getaway at the lake is relaxing peace and quiet, this is not for you. This is a huge property housing convention guests and zillions of wedding parties, family reunions and lots of crying babies. If you are lucky, your room won't require a half mile hike to get there...otherwise you will get in your exercise...

Wonderful experience for our annual company employee appreciate party. I booked all of this through the Legacy Lodge Event planner, Ljerka Bilbija and she did a great job. The entire staff did a great job! Special cudos to Chef Aidan and his helpers on our crawfish boil. All food and hospitality was top notch! I have no complaints whatsoever.

The rooms at the Lodge are very well appointed and comfortable. Dining options from full buffet breakfast to catered dinners to casual dining at Bullfrog bar and grill provide a range of options. They support guests on gluten free diets by offering gf bread at the grill and labeling buffet items. Although I am here for a work conference I...

Shannon Galbraith and Leah Stevens were a pleasure to work with. They have so much to do at the resort so you can find something for everyone. They have several event spaces and the staff is amazing. We look forward to having another offsite meeting with work at this location.

My company recently had a meeting here May 7-9. As the coordinator of this meeting, I worked closely with the staff prior to our arrival. Everything was handled EXACTLY as requested plus some! Every employee encountered on the property had top notch customer service skills. Our group stayed at the Lake Houses and had all of our meetings in that...

We stayed two nights at this beautiful rustic property located 45 minutes from Atlanta, GA. The expansive 1,500 acres are well-maintained and landscaped. Our group of 28 adults arrived at the lodge on a Monday evening in May driving by coach from Melbourne, FL Doormen stationed at the front doors greeted us and made our arrival with luggage easier to...

Stayed there for business meetings and was impressed with this resort. Good for families, good value, plenty of amenities plus complimentary valet parking. Nice pool and a good beach area but disappointed that even though we were staying at the resort, we had to pay to go the Sunset Cove Beach and Café.

I had the pleasure of staying here May 1-3 for a Zoes Kitchen Tribe Conference. I was in 451 and my room was perfect. Extremely clean and inviting. The Keurig was a nice touch. Breakfast at Sydney's every morning was good with multiple options, the omelet maker was an artist, and the coffee was strong and delicous. There were multiple...

“Villa's are nice but have not been updated. If you are bringing a group, the golf carts provided would be fun but with my group I knew that I needed to get the rooms in the lodge or we would never start on time (as they would have to coordinate with each other for rides to the daily meetings as it is shared golf carts).”
