Girls Weekend

Girls just wanna have fun, and Lake Oconee has the perfect girls’ weekend destinations.


Girls Weekend at Lake Oconee

Start your weekend by checking into The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee for a luxurious and relaxing stay. If you are looking to stay all together, you can rent out one of their charming private cottages for the weekend.


  • Dinner and Cocktails
  • After checking in to your hotel get dressed up and head over to The National Tavern. This modern and casual restaurant offers delicious food and drinks. Be sure to ask the bartender for a Blueberries a la Fred or a glass of champagne at the bar, and relax around the fire pit overlooking the National Golf Course!

  • Lobby Lounge
  • End the night back at The Ritz-Carlton at their in-house Lobby Lounge Bar. Split a bottle of Merlot with the girls, and enjoy the live music!

Day two is all about rest and relaxation...and mimosas! Spend today treating yourself to a spa day and shopping.


  • The most important meal of the day
  • Georgia’s Bistro is your first stop of the day and lucky for you, it’s located in The Ritz-Carlton! Enjoy a scrumptious Southern Breakfast with two eggs, country ham, a biscuit with sausage gravy and grits. Or if you prefer something lighter, we recommend the Fresh Fruit Plate. It wouldn’t be a true girls weekend unless you topped off breakfast with a mimosa or bloody mary.

  • Treat Yourself
  • The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds is the next stop on your agenda. The staff at the spa provides wonderful relaxation massages, facials, manis and pedis to help you melt away all your stresses. After your service there’s no rush to leave. Spend some time in the relaxation room, sauna, hot tub or indoor pool.

  • Lunch
  • After spending the morning relaxing, head down to quaint downtown Greensboro and enjoy lunch at The Yesterday Cafe. You absolutely cannot leave the cafe until you have had a slice of their famous Buttermilk Pie. Rumor has it Carrie Underwood ordered these for her wedding guests!

  • Shop 'til you drop
  • Walk off that delectable slice of buttermilk pie by taking a strolling along Main Street and stopping in all the shops. We recommend checking out Maggie Lane and The Pink Stitch for stylish clothing and jewelry and perusing the shelves of Genuine Georgia, a store showcasing art from Georgia artists.
