This is only the second (and last) time I've visited this attraction -- under duress. Why? You drive an hour-plus north of Atlanta to join the smokey line of cars creeping ever so slowly through Lake Lanier Islands 'Magical Nights of Lights'. It costs $60...More

Unfortunately my husband had to attend a conference at Legacy Lodge, & it was awful. The staff are rude & unresponsive to guest needs. DO NOT take the hotel shuttle unless you don’t mind waiting 30 plus mins for a ride. We had to call...More

We stayed overnight in the Legacy Lodge, and visited Margaritaville for dinner. We spent the next day at the water park. This resort features immaculate grounds and a beautiful remote setting. We didn't get on the golf course but it looks quite nice. Upkeep around...More

Stayed here 2x for business. The first was in a cottage. The grounds are nice and the two bedroom cottage is nice enough, but this resort has several major issues. First, the burner of my stove top would not turn off and I had to...More

We stayed here for three nights, and I couldn't recommend it more! We had an epic spot by the water, and though the campground needs a little love (the roads are a little cracked, but who cares about that), the scenery is to die for!...More
