Located lakeside on the outskirts of Hiawassee. Main lodge quite attractive and comfortable. Staff exemplary. Had a Delta flight to Atlanta cancelled for no explicable reason necessitating a change in plans and the staff was phenomenal accommodating us.

We stayed here because my niece was getting married in the mountains of Georgia. This place is just lovely. The staff is great and the rooms are clean and pretty.

Found this resort with the help of a AAA office in Marietta. It is quiet, friendly and very relaxing. Luann, who works the front desk in the evenings, as well as tends bar, builds a fire in the outside fire pit to make s'mores (when there is no storm), and a hundred other things, was very helpful and entertaining

To be fair, I sent a similar message to the resort manager and district manager, but never received a response after over two months of waiting. For history, over a year ago we stayed at the resort and had a terrific experience. So much so that I brought my then girlfriend back to the resort and proposed on the dock.... More
