In 1950, construction began on Lake Sidney Lanier, a manmade lake that encompassed 50,000 acres of land and displaced 700 families.

In 1950, construction began on Lake Sidney Lanier, a manmade lake that encompassed 50,000 acres of land and displaced 700 families. In fact, under the lake's surface, you'll still find churches, stores, homes and even a racetrack that all were overcome with water after the dam on the Chattahoochee River was completed. Even Lake Lanier Islands are not really islands; actually, they are mountaintops from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In 1962, through a partnership between the Corps of Engineers and the state of Georgia, the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority was created to manage and develop the area. In 1974, Lake Lanier Islands opened to the public on 1,500 acres, welcoming guests to the Stouffer Hotels Pine Isle Resort and Golf Club.

Through the ensuing years, Lake Lanier Islands underwent many changes, additions and upgrades. Today, the hotel and businesses are operated by LLI Management Company, which embarked on another series of renovations and improvements in 2005 when the company took over operations. Now families can enjoy a complete getaway to Lake Lanier Islands, where they can enjoy a one-stop vacation -- accommodations, dining and activities -- without ever leaving the property… at least not until check-out time arrives.
