I have high expectations when I stay at a Ritz-Carlton property and the Lodge exceeded every one of them. The staff was extremely friendly led by the resort's mascot, Dooley the Chocolate Lab. We enjoyed the infinity pool and swimming in Lake Oconee. We had breakfast both mornings in Georgia's Bistro and dinner both nights at Gaby's and had great meals. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The only drawback was that the Oconee and National golf courses are closed to resurface the greens and the Landing had its greens aerified. Make sure you call the golf concierge prior to booking to know if any of the courses have planned maintenance occurring.
We have found our lake retreat for years to come at the Ritz-Carlton at Reynolds Plantation.
