Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • There’s a treasure trove of big water views. Forget the dress—your toughest decision might be which fabulous blue backdrop is right for you! They offer vistas near the lake, beside the lake and on the lake.
  • Choose from multiple gorgeous reception venues, from versatile indoor ballrooms with sweeping lake views to charming tree-lined patios, all within steps of your ceremony site.
  • It’s the ideal destination wedding venue. Just 45 minutes from Atlanta, this 1,500-acre resort has a wealth of activities, from boating, golfing, and hiking to pampering at the spa…plus just as many accommodation options.
