Vey nice place to stay. Very friendly staff! Easy entry & departing. Great place to relax. Beautiful water falls on premises. Wish they had better internet service, missed Olympics. But....at times just need to relax. Great camp grounds. Nice ride into Helen. Would love to visit during the fall to see leaves change.

We spent three days camping beside the stream with our kids and grand kids. The kids enjoyed playing in the stream, feeding the animals, petting the rabbits, jumping on the trampoline, hiking to the waterfalls, catching trout and roasting hot dogs over the fire. Many memories were made -- we're headed back next year with the whole crew but will... More

Our family of 4 camped at Enota Mountain Retreat July 1st through the 6th in our travel trailer. We learned about the campsite on Georgia's Hidden Treasures TV show. We booked our space online in January in anticipation of the busy holiday weekend. There is a 5 night minimum, as this is a true retreat. It was refreshing to disconnect... More

My husband and I hiked up to the adjacent 200 foot waterfall with our 7-year-old daughter and our two dogs, and we were able to splash around in it all by ourselves. It was completely amazing. The property is quaint and natural, which we loved,... More

Spent two night here. Campsite was right next to the creek and the soothing sound was a much needed get away from the city. Hiked Joel creek trail to the AT and through to Jack's knob trial. Long hike, saw no one else and even a bear cub!
