The only issues were restaurants were either in the water park or charged a huge $$ fee to eat. We decided to order take out from Bullfrog and was still charged $25 resort fee at the restaurant for take out! Also, the parking in the villas was a mess -- tight spaces, very crowded and folks parked sideways to take up two spots! In addition, Lake view wasn't -- it was covered by tons of trees. We did have a wonderful time with friends at the Banks & Shane concert! Will come back with family and take advantage of the amenities. Staff very friendly and let us check in early!

Beautiful resort, Exceptional staff at Lanier Lake
From the moment we checked in, the service at Legacy Lodge was exceptional. Friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. Our room was perfect with a beautiful view of the lake. Hats off to the bartenders at Bullfrogs and Sadee at Sidney’s restaurant during breakfast. Amazing!! We were only planning one night but ended up extending our stay. Great resort.

"Lake front view" was blocked by trees. Our room was not connected to the main property, which was not clear upon booking. The main property only had a pub - there was no nice dinner option (except on Saturdays?) We were expecting (for the price) a luxury lake property with resort amenities like dining. What we got was a "Great Wolf Lodge" feel and a room in the basement of a very detached apartment building "villa" driving distance from the main lodge.
