On this unique training plan, you will be exposed to all areas of culinary operations in a luxury private club.

Dating back 100 years as a family retreat along the shores of the Oconee River, this land was quickly recognized as a destination of uncommon character by early visitors. The striking beauty of both the river and the Oconee forest created a natural haven that felt like a world apart, providing a lifestyle with an informal cadence all its own. Many quickly decided to “linger longer,” turning one- or two-day visits into three-, four- or five-day family excursions.
Here, at Reynolds Lake Oconee, you’ll discover a lifestyle with a cadence all its own. Our community of character is composed of passionate individuals, all of whom have been drawn to an active life, well-lived.

We call Reynolds our escape. It's a place where we leave the non-stop activity of our current life and everything slows down a notch.”
