LAKE LANIER ISLANDS -Lake Lanier Islands is expanding its target audience to include an entirely new segment of the population it is used to serving: the four-legged variety – as it declares itself a pet-friendly resort.

“With mile after mile of scenic paths and walking trails throughout the resort, this is the ideal setting for our guests to enjoy leisure time with their pets,” explains Stephanie Orr, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Lake Lanier Islands. “We have often sought to be a vacation destination for families travelling to Georgia, as well as a spur-of-the-moment staycation spot for local families and couples. By designating the Islands a pet-friendly resort, we alleviate the hassle of having to find a pet-sitter or boarding facility, as well as the stress of separation on both the pets and their humans."

Pets will now be allowed in specially designated rooms in the 216-room Legacy Lodge and the newly renovated LakeHouses at Legacy, as well as the Campgrounds at Shoal Creek and Blue Ridge. For guests who wish to book a visit to the Islands to include their pet, they will need to consider the following:

•Pets must weigh less than 80 pounds.
•There will be a $75 fee per stay for each pet. This fee will not apply to guide dogs or assistive dogs.
•Pets left unattended in the guest room when the guest leaves the hotel premises must be secured in a proper pet crate or carrier.
•When outside of the room, pets must either be in a pet carrier or on a secure leash.
•Due to health regulations, pets cannot join guests in any of the Food and Beverage Outlets, the Pool, Fitness Center or LanierWorld – which includes Family Fun Park, Big Beach and Sunset Cove.

Guests who forget to pack a pet bed for their dog or cat need not worry. The resort will be happy to provide a mat and some welcome gifts for them through its Housekeeping Services. Lake Lanier Islands is also adding pet walking to its list of Concierge services for a fee of $10 per walk, which will be added to the guest’s room bill.

Guests who opt to walk their dogs themselves will find disposal bags at the front desk and along many of the walking paths throughout the resort.
