Luxury merges with quintessential Southern hospitality at this stunning 251-room resort overlooking a vast 19,000-acre lake. Nestled in the woods, the resort is surrounded by water on three sides, offering commanding lake views. Draped in beds of ivy and edged by towering pines, blooming crepe myrtles and colorful caladiums, the five-story main building fronts the glistening lake, while six separate lakeside cottages and a presidential house with four master suites overlooks the Oconee Golf Course.
The design character of the lodge echoes the turn-of-the-century Craftsman and Adirondack movements, and the attention to detail, texture and scale prevalent in these classic American styles has been incorporated throughout the property. The exterior features a combination of stacked fieldstone walls and chimneys, stained wood cedar shingle siding, and painted wood trim and windows – creating a rustic, lodge-like architectural style. Interiors are done in an American traditional style, with slate floors, open beam ceilings, stone fireplaces, and antler chandeliers accentuated by handsome wood furnishings crafted of deep mahogany and rich cherry, as well as softer shades of pine and oak. Anchoring the resort is the lobby lounge, with panoramas of Lake Oconee, vaulted wood timber ceilings, polished wood floors and two imposing stacked stone fireplaces.
