Lake Blackshear Resort will not be sold

December 6, 2006

Crisp County - - The Retreat Resort of Lake Blackshear is not on the market.  

In September, the state of Georgia considered putting the popular lakeside resort up for sale.

The North Georgia Mountain Authority initially wanted to appraise the resort to determine its value, but the Authority recommended Tuesday that the state should *not* sell the property.

In fact, it plans to expand the resort.

Later this month, the Retreat will break ground on an additional restaurant.

The Retreat at Lake Blackshear offers 88 guest rooms, golf, a conference center, and a new marina featuring dinner cruises.
