Hop on The Lodge of Athens’ private shuttle bus to speed to the University of Georgia campus. On the weekends, stroll up the North Oconee River Greenway to Sandy Creek Nature Reserve for a tranquil afternoon with friends, before hitting the eateries and live music venues downtown.
Despite the great location, you’ll find there’s plenty to tempt you to stay put in the safe, gated community at The Lodge of Athens. Spend sunny days lazing by the large swimming pool. Make yourself comfortable on a lounger and, when lunchtime rolls around, cook up a feast on the grilling stations. Join friends on the comfy seats in the shaded outdoor living area as you tuck in, then get a mini-tournament going on the sand volleyball and basketball courts.
If you’re in the mood to pump some iron, hit the upgraded private fitness center where the state-of-the-art equipment and ceiling-mounted TVs are designed to keep you motivated. Once you’ve worked your muscles, get bronzed on the tanning bed, or head for a cool drink or game of pool in the clubhouse, which also has a game room and cable TV.
When you need to tackle your latest assignment, choose whether you’d rather connect to the high-speed internet and work in the privacy of your own room, or get together with friends to study in the upgraded computer lab with Mac workstations.
At the end of the day, freshen up with a hot shower in your private bathroom, then lay back on your comfortable bed to get a good night’s sleep.
