Summer Travel Idea – The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee

On Lake Oconee’s shores, about 80 miles east of Atlanta, the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds offers a tranquil retreat from city life. Nestled on Lake Oconee, the most pristine lake in the entire Southeast, the resort is surrounded by towering Georgia pines, miles of spectacular shoreline, and world-class golf courses.

  • With 257 guest rooms & suites (including their Club level), 6-two and three-bedroom cottages, and a 4-bedroom Lake House there’s something for everyone at The Ritz Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee.  Beyond the cottages and Lake House (with dedicated Cottage Concierge), my favorite units are the Fireside Lake View Room and the Fireside Resort View Room.  These rooms have gorgeous firepits adjoining their patio…perfect for evenings with wine or smores and are also great for those traveling with pets!
  • Enjoy the outdoor infinity-edge pool adjacent to Gaby’s by the Lake.  The pool stays heated year-round and is ideal for relaxing, family fun, or simply taking in the view
  • The spa is a 30,000 square foot retreat with extensive relaxation facilities including saunas, steam rooms, cold plunge pools and an expanded ladies’ lounge as well as an indoor pool
  • JUST ARRIVED AS OF APRIL 5TH – Two gorgeous Hacker-Craft mahogany boats perfect for skimming across the lake for a beautiful sunrise tour, lake lunch, or sunset cocktail
  • AND COMING SOON – Just in time for summer!  A brand new Family Pool and Ritz-Kids Clubhouse, providing endless adventures for our youngest VIP’s
