Beautiful resort with unique roomy cottages in a woodland setting. Absolutely lovely! We choose the resort because we could bring our dogs and the accommodations and service were way beyond our expectations. We took advantage of the hiking trails that surround the resort and ate at the Woodlands Grill and at the Beer Garden. Both restaurants offered a good selection and delicious food.
Our stay was wonderful and worth the cost. It’s close to Atlanta too!
From the moment we drove through the grand gates we knew were in for a real treat. We stayed just two nights but took full advantage of the amenities. We took a guided horseback ride with Miranda and it was fabulous, then we headed to the skeet shooting range and Troy was awesome. First time shooting a gun and manage to hit 7 clays! We played lots of games in t he courtyard, made s'mores and even did some canoeing. EVERYONE is very accommodating and genuinely happy to have you at the resort We will be back!!
