Lakefront Spa Resort with Hunting, Fishing, and Farms

At Flat Creek Lodge, quail, white-tailed deer, and boar share a woodland habitat, and largemouth bass and bluegill flit beneath the surface in spring-fed lakes. The property also boasts a mushroom farm, a berry orchard, and a herd of jersey dairy cows—about as locally sourced as it gets. In many ways, guests at Flat Creek Lodge live off the land, but staying here hardly means roughing it: the eco-conscious resort features a spa, fine dining, and leisure pursuits such as skeet shooting.

Flat Creek Lodge has earned tons of press, with praise heaped on the dairy farm's artisanal cheeses, including a cocoa-laced cheddar and an Irish-style cheese blended in oatmeal stout. At the wine and cheese reception—usually held on Saturdays, but available any day upon request—you can sample Flat Creek's cheddar and havarti before playing a round of pin the tail on the cheese wheel. The Dining Room's seasonal menu features onsite harvests in dishes such as roast chicken with oyster mushrooms ($19) and pork chops in an apricot-cider reduction ($26).

After a full day exploring the nearly 2,000-acre grounds, you can unwind in standard lodge rooms. Local wildlife artwork hangs from rustic pine-plank walls, and a shared verandah overlooks the lake. For a bit more relaxation, hit the spa to surrender to a deep-tissue massage or a session in the cedar-lined sauna. The following morning, you can start the day off right with a hearty southern breakfast of bacon, eggs, and grits.

Eastern Georgia: Hunting and State Parks

Although the resort is within 100 miles of Augusta and Savannah, there's so much to do onsite that you may not want to leave. In addition to bird and deer hunts, you can practice your shot in the skeet-shooting range or do battle on the paintball course, which features commando-style trenches and forts. There's also a pair of state parks within an hour's drive: George L. Smith, famous for its 1880 gristmill, and Magnolia Springs, home to turtles, alligators, and escaped mascots.
