Staff Report From Gainesville CEO

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Lanier Islands is delighted to premiere the NEW Peachtree Pointe – a lakeside venue that includes lakeside outdoor amphitheater and pavilion. Thanks to an investment of more than $1M, the once open-air pavilion has been enclosed with space enough to accommodate over 500 guests. The addition of two commercial kitchens, climate-controlled interior, elegantly finished restrooms and a covered terrace takes the wow factor at the venue to an entirely new level. This 8500+-SF facility will now serve as a terrific space for awards banquets, large company meetings, corporate retreats, family reunions, anniversaries, class reunions, graduation parties and more.

“As we continually endeavor to make our guest experience the best it can be, we’ve become very good at listening to the needs and wishes of our visitors,” said Grier Todd, Vice President of Hospitality at Lanier Islands. “We then take what we’ve learned and push it one step further in hopes of exceeding expectations. That is clearly illustrated at Peachtree Pointe – one of our most picturesque venues. Perched high on a hill overlooking the lake, the pavilion at Peachtree Pointe sets the tone for any large gathering. Add to that the large adjacent lakeside amphitheater and you have the makings of a truly unforgettable event. Groups can host a day of meetings indoors, and then conclude their event with musical entertainment under the stars. They bring a vision and we’ll find a way to make it possible.”

The renovation at Peachtree Pointe was the result of the need for another sizable venue to accommodate the resort’s growing number of large companies and groups that look to Lanier Islands for its meeting services and event planning. In addition to more than a dozen event venues of varying sizes, the resort also offers award-winning accommodations, team-building activities and a wealth of amenities that include an 18-hole golf course, equestrian center, network of walking trails and the renowned Margaritaville on Lanier Islands’ lakefront entertainment complex.

“Whereas our Grand Ballroom accommodates up to 700 guests, it’s located inside Legacy Lodge – where many of our groups elect to stay overnight,” added Todd. “Some groups simply want a change of scenery and the opportunity to enjoy all the things that make Lanier Islands so distinctive – chief among them, beautiful views of the lake. Peachtree Pointe offers them that and so much more. It is a perfect venue for large groups that want to combine the beauty of the outdoors with the practicality of an indoor space.”
