Lake Oconee is one of the most magnificent freshwater lakes in Georgia. Actually a man-made reservoir, the lake boasts over 350 miles of scenic shoreline. Along its shores are creeks and rivers, natural forests, and plenty of places for water sports and fun outdoor activities.

At Reynolds Lake Oconee, the developer created a place for people to live on this beautiful lake. Located 80 miles west of Atlanta, the community is a natural haven just outside the city. One big benefit of living inland is the distance from the coastal risks of storms in hurricane season and the award winning master planned community is built below the snowline. But for residents of Reynolds Lake Oconee, these are not the reasons for its popularity. Those who live here enjoy signature home plans, first-class amenities, outdoor activities, six championship Lake Oconee golf courses, and all the views and splendor of the incredible lake.

Layouts vary to include covered southern porches, spacious modern kitchens, breakfast/sitting rooms, large walk-in closets, and optional 4th and 5th bedrooms. Signature home plans are designed by 4 select members of the Reynolds Plantation Builders’ Association, all of which are seasoned masters in the building craft.

Amenities at Reynolds Lake Oconee include:

The Lake Club Tennis Center, with two stadium-sized and 6 championship-sized, lighted courts as well as clinics, private lessons, and a full-service pro shop.

Four full-service marinas offering dry dock storage, marina stores with fishing and boating supplies, full-time mechanics, and dockside fueling. Pontoon boat rental is available, as well as a variety of other watercraft including canoes, kayaks and paddleboards.
