For personal reasons, I chose to breakaway and spend a Saturday day and night at the Lodge and attend the "full moon party". Spent several hours at the pool sipping on some tasty,cold Heinekens accompanied by a great DJ. Extremely relaxing and so much fun. The evening down at Sunset Cove was just what the doctor ordered. Wonderful food, yummy... More

There was so much hype about the package included the "Kids lounge" include in package but it only had a ping pong table some playstation games?! Golf... More

We spent three days at a cabin during spring break, and it was a great experience. Even though the water park wasn't open yet, we enjoyed the beach, restaurants, lake and zip lining. Staff was terrific and helpful, cabin was very comfortable and spacious. A couple of small issues with the cabin, but they were handled quickly and in a... More

My husband and I stayed here for our Marriage Retreat from our church. From the first person we met at the gate...ALL OF THE STAFF WAS AMAZING....every single person. Food was awesome, and room was perfect and clean. We are definitely coming back with our children. It was MY pleasure to have met everyone at Lake Lanier Resorts

Just used as a stay over after a wedding and it was wonderful. Junior Suite at the end of a long hall, away from all of the restaurants and elevators. Property is beautiful and serene, wish we had more time to take it in. Will definitely be bringing the whole family back soon.

Spent a few days at Legacy Lodge & Conference Center for a PA conference. The site was fabulous and the service was excellent. I had a great many items to get to the Exhibit Hall and the staff, especially Curt, went out of their way to assist me. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable. There was absolutely nothing... More

I recently visited Bullfrog's at the Legacy Lodge for an afternoon cocktail with friends and sat at the bar. We were there this past Saturday during the day...not at all busy. My friend and I ordered vodka and soda, the bartender asked if we had a vodka preference and we specified that we wanted the well vodka. When the bill... More

My one bedroom, king bedded villa was very nice with a beautiful view of the lake and walkout patio area on ground floor. Access required walking down two flights of stairs so request upper... More

Though I live in Atlanta, I was looking for a change of scenery and relaxation destination that was not too far way. Love the lodge atmosphere in the lobby and how the theme is carried through with the furniture, lamp and mirror décor in each room. Lovely balcony views and wicker seating. It is a bit odd how each balcony... More
