We arrived today in our 35 foot MotorHome, and were assigned to a site close to the main office (Lodge). This camp ground is ideal for those who just want to get close to nature: we are next to a rushing babbling brook, with excellent WiFi, but don't have any cable or broadcast TV. Not all sites have WiFi, so...

I try to be honest and fair on all my reviews as i travel several times per year. But I would be doing a disservice by not giving this a review and letting others know of my experience. As someone else said,...... #1 I should have been suspicious of the "pay in full" when booking and..... #2 the overall representation...

Enota, Manager at Enota Mountain Retreat, responded to this review

Although this review looks bad for Enota we want our many returning and future guest to know that we believe this to be the work of one of two previous employees that we unfortunately had to terminate for their angry tempers and insubordination. They both made it very clear that they would trash us via the internet and this seems...

Spent nights of 4/22 and 4/23 there in my 23' RV. Everything is as advertised. Laid back. Friendly staff. Full hookups. Nice bathhouse. Great place is family friendly. Almost feels like a commune, in the good sense.

This is the one of the most GORGEOUS places I've ever been! Words can't explain the joy I felt when we found this oasis, coming off the AT. Debbie (manager) is sweet as pie!! She went above and beyond with accommodations and every need, showing what TRUE southern hospitality is all about. Everyone on the staff were friendly and courteous,...

My son and I took a mother-son camping trip to Enota and LOVED It! Debbie and her team were so friendly and helpful. We pitched a tent in the bonfire area of the family camping spot. We were right by the stream and it was wonderful to hear the sounds of the water running and birds chirping when waking up...

Our family had a great weekend getaway at Enota! Beautiful campsites and hiking! The kids really enjoyed getting to feed the animals on the farm and play on the trampolines! Every staff member we encountered was incredibly helpful and kind! The proximity to downtown Helen and tubing is nice and we will utilize that on our next trip- which we...

My wife and I went to Enota on our honeymoon in 2008, which was a gift from my Mother to us. We fell in love with the place and have been coming to stay many times over the years. Our tradition for Thanksgiving, since my Mother passed away, is to spend Thanksgiving week at Enota. It is hard to explain...

My daughter and I were there as part of a weekend retreat. The cabin we stayed in was Shawnee. There were 10 people total in our group. They didn't have any facilities serving food so we brought our groceries, which made it more fun. Our cabin had 2 bedrooms with a shower, toilet and sink. Each bedroom had a set...

Enota is a beautiful place. We stayed in a cabin. It was very quaint, clean and comfortable. There are waterfalls and streams within enota and others to visit all around. There are hiking trails and more waterfalls close by . The trails are easy to difficult. The Appalachian trail is also close by. We visited the small village of Helen...
