Pet-Friendly Accommodations

Are you looking for a great place to bring your family on vacation? Your WHOLE family? Lanier Islands is now pet-friendly, so you don’t have to find a sitter for Fido! “Leave no pet behind” can be your new motto for finding great, affordable vacation spots this season!

We’ve got your pet-friendliest accommodations at Legacy Lodge, the LakeHouses at Legacy, and of course, our campgrounds at Shoal Creek, Chestnut Ridge, and Blue Ridge.

There are more than 20 miles of walking and hiking trails, full of gorgeous Georgia scenery and wildlife here at the Islands. Why not take your furry friend on a beautiful walk under cloudless blue skies? Or you could grab a couple life vests and head on out to Harbor Landing to rent a pontoon for a full day of fun on the Lake! Our Island Skimmer Pontoons and Standard Pontoons are pet-friendly, too! Treat your best friend to an exciting new experience. Your pooch pal will love seeing leaping fish, snapping turtles, gliding herons, geese and ducks, and even graceful deer on the shoreline. Wave your paws at the passing boats on your way back in to Harbor Landing, and at the end of the day, your mischievous mutt will sleep the best sleep he’s ever had.
