The resort had beautiful views, landscaping, interior decor. There were lots of fun things to do for winter or summer. Everything was very clean. Kid friendly and pet friendly but we never felt inconveneinced by either. Beautiful venue, excellent value, great for kids, lots to do, we'll definitely be back!

We were a party of three rooms. Originally the manager tried to make amends on a previous stay. Two of our parties upon check in were told they didn’t have a reservation. One of the reservations were extended and the party was kept on the line for over 39 min to be told they had to check out. Had to get the manager involved to get the correct info. Also rooms not cleaned and we are still waiting for towels. Chair was also broken and still sitting after 2 days broken.

Nice location of the Lodge. It is secluded on an island. Very friendly staff and helpful as well. The Lodge has very nice views and a walking trail. They are pet friendly location and reasonable price for your pet. The Lodge had several restaurants inside and prices were reasonable and food was great tasting. They have a nice outside pool, however, due to the cold weather in December we couldn't take advantage of it, although we did see some brave guest enjoying the pool with 60 degree weather.

The staff greeted us dressed as elves. Despite a pandemic and shortage of workers, the employees at the Legacy Lodge and those at Lake Lanier were exceptionally patient, hard-working and service-minded. The package with tickets to the lights and Snow Island were an easy way for us to enjoy them and time together.

Atlanta, Georgia1 contribution
The reason is as follows: 1. Unclean lodge room 2. Poor front desk customer service: Unable to locate reservation / Did not send the housekeeper to the unclean room as promised 3. Outrageous charge to kids craft activity with poor staff service: I had to personally grab all the material myself and assist the child. The staffs were all high-schoolers with less knowledge. 4. Snow island event was a joke. The fake snow was pretty much the slices of ice and it was unsafe for the kids.
