Fodor's Expert Review The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee

1 Lake Oconee Trail, Eatonton, Georgia, 30642, USA Fodor's Choice

This luxurious family-friendly resort on Lake Oconee offers a variety of outdoor activities and is a haven for golfers, with five championship courses to choose from. If rest and relaxation is what you’re after, there’s also a full-service spa, fine dining, indoor and outdoor pools, and lots of outdoor spaces where you can pause and take in the sunset. There's also a nightly bonfire where you can perfect your marshmallow-roasting skills. Reminiscent of a country lodge, the hotel offers all the amenities you would expect from a high-end brand but with a touch of Southern hospitality. Service is warm and friendly. The rooms, most with balconies, are spacious and well appointed. Club level is available for those who really want to splurge.
