America's Best Lake Hotels

Chip Henderson

Chaise lounges on the dock, boat rides to dinner: what’s more idyllic than a waterfront stay? T+L readers reveal their favorite lake hotels.

No. 7 Ritz-Carlton, Orlando

7 of 16

Score: 89.19

The relative isolation of this property on 500 acres of well-tended land (about two miles east of SeaWorld) results in a sense of peace and quiet otherwise unknown in these parts. A businesslike hotel with a surfeit of Italianate pink marble, the Ritz has 584 rooms spread through a U-shaped tower. The next-door Grande Lakes, home of the Emotion Kayaks Flat-Water School, is also the place for private fly-fishing excursions.
