Destination hotel Georgia :
THE RITZ-CARLTON LODGE  
 

Just 75 miles from Atlanta, The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, one of the most stunning lake resorts in Georgia, transports guests to a place far away from daily cares and pressures, and families to a place of renewed connection. Cradled by verdant hills where Georgia pines tower to the sky, it is little wonder that the family born to this land called it “Linger Longer.”


Non-motorized lake activities
Join the staff daily for a plethora of non-motorized lake activities that are sure to keep you entertained for hours.
The Yolo Boards are an easier to use version of the standup paddle board. They are sturdy and fun to maneuver around Lake Oconee. They are also a great way to strengthen your core muscles.
Jump in a canoe and paddle leisurely around Lake Oconee - you just may see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons or Striped Bass jumping out of the water!
If you are looking for more speed than the canoes, try the single and tandem kayaks.
But be careful they are easier to flip! If your legs are ready for a work out, try the pedal boat.
It can accommodate 2 people and are a favorite of cyclists.
Daily, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reservations are not required.
