Great Venue, Terrible Food – I had my wedding at one of their venues this past weekend, the venue was absolutely gorgeous (our florist did a lovely job). However, I was so incredibly disappointed with the food and attention to detail. We were told that it would be no problem to get a ride for the wedding party to the venue, however, it took them an hour and a half to pick up the bride and bridesmaids (making me late for my own wedding while staying on site). However, that wasn't the end of the world. The most disappointing part of the experience was our food was absolutely terrible. Our tastings didn't go well, so we made up our own recipes and sent photos to the kitchen to make sure that our food looked and tasted good. Our final tasting went really well. When it came to the wedding however, at LEAST one component was left of of each plate. Two of the dishes were so over-cooked that they were inedible. I would not recommend this venue to ANY future brides if your wedding meal is important to you. I do have to say that the hotel is really pretty and the venues can be absolutely gorgeous if you have a great florist like we did. If they want to be a premiere wedding venue they need to get some chef's in who know what they are doing and are organized enough to pull off multiple weddings without sacrificing quality.
Nice area to visit, but limited stay time. – Rates are rather expensive due to being a resort. Limited time in, then you vacate, thus not good for long term stays, ie. working in area. Has nice holiday lighting scenes.
best lake in GA – I love this place. when I was growing up my family used to come up here every summer and spend our days camping and out on the lake. It's still that cool, and actually it's just gotten cooler over the years. I've never gotten to stay in the resort, BUT WOW it's lovely, with the pool and the view and just... everyting. If you need something to do that has water, camping, beaches, boating or watever your into, but you don't want to actually drive far, then go here. We went up on a Sat this year, got to the lake around 11am, spent the afternoon on a boat, grabbed some food, then was back home in candler Park by 5. It was great.
wow the reviews are old – Curious that all the reviews are dated 2005 or earlier. I guess no one wants to talk about the drought and the impact on tourism at the lake and the reduced availablity of amenities.
If you're planning a weekend beach or boating trip--but not a drive to the coast--look to Lake Lanier. – The View
The 38,000-acre lake has 540 miles of shoreline. Lake Lanier Islands, a resort and water park, hugs its southernmost shore. The islands are the remnants of mountains submerged when the man-made lake was formed in 1957. Scenic coves and wooded peninsulas define the 1,200 acres of ground they cover. A visit can be a day trip or a resort vacation at one of two nearby first-class hotels, Renaissance Pineisle and Emerald Pointe. Charming lake house, cabin rentals and campground sites are also available.
The beach and water park are the biggest attractions, featuring water slides, Georgia's largest wave pool, a mile of white sandy beach, volleyball and live music. Visitors can rent sailboats, houseboats, ski boats or even a luxury liner with hot tubs and accommodations for up to 100. Two championship golf courses--particularly Emerald Pointe--offer lake views and challenging holes. Don't forget the lake itself.
Visit to Lake Lanier – Lake Lanier is a beautiful resort. However, we went in mid-march during our kids spring break and less than half of the amenities were available. No where in the brochures or website does it advise about the water park or equestrian center being limited certain times of the year. It was disappointing.
