Foxhall Resort touts itself as a refined retreat for outdoor pursuits that often hosts weddings, corporate retreats and larger-scale celebrations. With 1,100 acres and activities such as paddleboarding and ATV offroading, this Douglasville resort within an hour of most of metro Atlanta can provide an easy weekend getaway for anyone.
Guest accommodations include traditional, hotellike suites, two-, three- and four-bedroom villas, and larger luxury homes for families and groups. The options enhance the flexibility for Foxhall to serve as simcha venue or a weekend retreat.
Foxhall is perhaps best known for the Beretta Trident Course, a large shooting ground and sporting clay course. Guests can get private instruction, take on the 15-station sporting clay course alone, or use the five-stand and wobble trap on the course.
The Cypress is one of two luxury homes at Foxhall Resort.
The property includes 16 freshwater lakes for fishing, riding hovercraft, canoeing, paddleboarding or kayaking, and a path that runs next to the Chattahoochee River provides a venue for walks and runs with a view.
A traditional archery range and 3D archery course, along with a trail and equipment for ATV riding, are among the popular activities, and Foxhall offers more traditional things to do with four swimming pools, four tennis courts, a golf driving range and the opportunity to hike the property.
Those visiting don’t need to leave the property for meals. The Paddock, the onsite restaurant, specializes in Georgia-grown produce and wild game like bison and duck.
Hovercraft riding is one of the newer activities at Foxhall.
“Foxhall Resort is a wonderful staycation location because it allows families and individuals to escape the city and enjoy spending time outdoors,” said Whitney Marshall, the resort’s marketing director. “With 87 luxury rooms, a farm-to-table restaurant, and activities like the clay course, resort pools, 16 lakes, hovercraft and many others, it’s the perfect getaway that’s not far from home.”
Foxhall Resort serves as a place for an upscale, all-inclusive weekend or a destination simcha venue that’s away from home but not too far away.
