Your pet deserves a luxurious vacation, too, and you won’t find a hotel more welcoming than The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee! The resort’s own labrador retriever, Dooley, spends his days greeting guests and even escorting them to their rooms on occasion! Dooley especially loves interacting with children as a part of the Ritz-Kids program. Another plus for bringing your pet to the resort: a portion of all pet fees are donated to Circle of Friends, the local humane society.
