The rustic charm, preserved natural beauty and amenities compliment active mountain lifestyles. Mercer Reynolds, the founder of Reynolds Lake Oconee and original developer of Achasta, had a goal for Reynolds Linger Longer Communities, to "leave each community better than we found it, including the land, the people and the greater community". Planting 500 trees, 1,200 plants and preserving 50% of this Georgia mountain community as protected open space is a reflection of goals accomplished making it ideal to Baby Boomers who want to retire in one of the best small towns in Georgia.
