My family just stayed for our 3rd time in the cottages at Flat Creek. I get the feeling that the place is under new management. The food that we ate tasted off. We came in May and as before the food was outstanding. This was what we have come to expect since the menu prices range from $17 to $32... More

We decided to have our high school reunion at flat creek lodge. A great idea that turned out to be a complete success. We traveled over three hours to attend so we planned to have a room. Every part of our event and stay was great. Loved the lodge room feel. A/c worked great on a hot weekend. Customer service... More

I know it sounds crazy, but this lodge totally reminded me of the beautiful ponds, lakes, and rivers of a Vietnamese or Thai landscape. Huge lakes blanketed by lily pads; cottages where you open your French doors to an elevated lake view where you can fish straight from your back porch! This is what my family experienced at Flat Creek... More

Go on a Wednesday and ask for Bernie he is the lead chef. Wade is the security guy. Wayne is the GM. Keep in mind you are in rural GA. The heat in the summer months is a lot but the cabins are air conditioned. This place is making a comback. The team went out of their way to make... More

This place was just a little piece of paradise in the middle of rural Georgia. I stayed in the Deer Room, but I got to see the bream, duck, raccoon, fox, and bobcat rooms too. Each was decorated like it's animal in a very detailed fashion. I just loved them all! The wonderful back porch made me want to stay... More

Stayed for 2 nights in one of the 2bedroom cottages on the lake. Both bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The living room area is kinda small but it didnt matter when you have a large outdoor deck that sits over the water. They have fishing poles provided if you want to try and catch fish right from your deck.... More

This lodge was one of the most unique hotel stays of my life. We booked this as a front end of a New Years Eve trip to Savannah through Groupon. This place is an awesome adventure. Book a cottage and you get a huge 2 bedroom 2 bath home that includes 2 golf carts to roam 3000 acres of property.... More

The website for FCL doesn't do it justice. Even after all the rain just before my arrival, this is a beautiful property. The sprawling acreage, still ponds, beautiful swans and birds was just what the doctor ordered after a very busy Christmas. Even brought my puppy; he had plenty of space to play. We stayed in the Swan House cottage... More

The Lodge rooms sit right on one of the large ponds nearest to the restaurant and spa. Our room was on the end with a vaulted ceiling and clerestory windows in the vault. The rough sawn pine on walls, ceiling, floor, doors and shutters gave the room a very warm feel. Only slight complaint would be all rooms with two... More
