If you're a busy person and need to disconnect to rejuvenate, this is the place. This gets you back to basics, but not in an overly rustic way. If you need room service and fancier ammenities this may not be your place, but the grounds with the trails and streams are worth giving it up. The cabins are very quaint... More

My stay was in one of their cabins. I selected this location because it was pet friendly and I took my puppy. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. The location is absolutely beautiful! The staff worked very hard to make my stay wonderful.

My experience in Enota was unforgettable! There is magic in the air!! The well kept grounds made for easy access to excellent trails. The 200ft waterfall is my favorite place to hangout. During the early hours of the day I was able to light a fire by the cabin and enjoy my meditation by the fire, an unforgettable experience. Spirit,... More

This place is absolutely gorgeous!!! We had a blast hiking to the waterfalls, touring the farm and garden, and playing in the creek. Justin at the farm let my girls milk a cow, pet the goats, and search the chicken coop for eggs. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. The kids loved the in-ground trampolines. Can't wait to return!!!

Beautiful, and well cared for with breathtaking vistas of the mountains and waterfalls. The cabin that we stayed in was tasteflly equipped. Nice amenities in the kitchenette, great bath and shower. The staff were friendly and very helpful, and... More

I just returned from a 2 night camping trip to Enota, I paid for 3 nights but by the end of the second day we could no longer handle the out of control fly situation. We camped there in a pop up camper, the tent/pop up spaces are so close and on top of each other. There is no privacy... More

It doesn't get better than camping within walking distance of amazing waterfalls and next to a peaceful creek. Staying here allows you to experience nature at its best! We camped with family members of all ages, including one younger child and a pre-teen. The youngest loved the trampolines and the experience of milking a cow! The pre-teen was happy that... More

The Good: This camp is located in a beautiful area--in a valley in Northeast, GA approximately 12 miles south of Hiawassee and just north of Helen. There are gorgeous mountain views and waterfalls throughout the camp. We stayed next to a really loud waterfall which was nice because it drowned out the sounds of our neighbors who were only a...

enota, Owner at Enota Mountain Retreat, responded to this review

We consider ourselves to be an educational facility. If a hippie commune recycles, teaches conservation, welcomes everyone and is open-minded and friendly, then we fall under that category. We are a non-profit conservation facility and there are many costs associated with operating our facility. Our staff is professional and friendly, therefore we apologize if someone did not experience that. We... More

We arrived late in the evening to find the cabins covered in mold. Mold on the tables so thick you could write your name on the build up. The bedding smelled horrible like animals and filth. We were bitten in the bed by something unknown and could not breath due to the strong smell of mold. When we complained they... More
