overall good trip, typical two bedroom cottage on lake, somewhat expensive, over 700/night. one day is all you need for water park. If you have a boat you can dock there but can be crowded. Clean, friendly mostly kids working there

Very nice resort. We were there for a poker run with the boats and found the resort and grounds to be extremely nice. Felt like you were pulling into a Disney resort. The golf course was so beautiful that I wanted to play and I did not even bring clubs. The outside fire pits around the pool with the live music in the background made the evening. Lake and docks were great as well as the surrounding restaurants.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this resort. We were there last Thur. and Fri. The weather was very good except for occasional light showers. We stayed in a room at the Lodge. It was clean and nicely appointed. Two queen beds and small balcony. The view of the lake was mostly blocked by trees, but they were very pretty to look at. We walked around the grounds which were well kept. Lots of nice views of Lake from the walk. The nearby waterpark was a big plus for those with children. The Buford Dam was nearby with a lot of park and picnic area.
We rented a house in Cumming Ga for a week with our entire family and ended up renting jet ski from Lake Lanier Resort marina.
We had a drink and Pizza at Frogs and young girl who was our waitress was super friendly and told us a lot about the area since she lives just a shot distance away.

This was by first visit to Legacy Lodge but will certainly not be my last. I attended a business meeting and I recommend having your next meeting here. Extremely comfortable and business friendly conference rooms. If you are in need of equipment, audio-visual aids just ask and it's there in your room.
Room accommodations were superb. Clean rooms; great shower and very comfortable bed and to top it all off you have you have your own private balcony.
Excellent cuisine in both Bullfrogs & Windows.
All I can say is stay here and you will enjoy every minute.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable and clean.

Because it was a business conference, I wasn't able to take advantage of all the amenities the Resort offers. However, my stay was awesome and would only get better if I'd had the time! I highly recommend you visit!

I have learned the hard way NOT to believe what is written on Trip Advisor, however Lake Lanier is a top notch resort, you will be treated as a king ( or queen)
The lake houses are everything you would want and more.
I've stayed in all their accommodations.

Room Tip: I've stayed in all accommodations- lake house was the BEST!!

Food is pricey and not good. Found a whole black eye pea in our hummus, served with pita bread from a bag on a limp bed of greens. At bullfrog, window was worse. Bottled of wine terribly overpriced. Buffet, no steak. Food was cold. Biscuits were horrible. Save your money do no eat at these restaurants until they fix the quality of food.
