Enota was a fantastic getaway for us. With waterfalls, trails, and farm animals there was plenty of nature to enjoy. The staff is super friendly and our cabin was nice and clean. We found something new everyday we were there and enjoyed the incredible view from the top of the waterfall! We love it and plan to return.

Our visit was in October during the start of fall foliage. I'll still give this a 5 star rating but with a few things to note. The prices, wellll it's a little high, for the condition of the place, and small sites ... maybe I am a little picky and maybe I am comparing this to state parks so this...

Our stay was great. Very friendly staff. We did not want to leave. Seems to be the environment for retirement. Family oriented and beautiful place. We have visited several times over the past few years.

My wife and I went to stay in a cabin on the grounds of this establishment. This park was probably nice in the past and could in the future but is has not been at the present time. The cabin was nice but they charge hotel price but after reading the rule, cleaning appears to be up to the occupants...

It is our sincere hope that our guests have a wonderful experience when visiting Enota. We strive to offer impeccable service to everyone who visits. With that said, Enota's cabin rentals are lower than the average hotel prices in the area. For example, the Shawnee cabin sleeps eight with a wood burning fireplace and full kitchen and only cost $165...

My husband and I camped for 4 days in our RV. Such a wonderful cozy and inviting place to stay in the North Georgia Mountains. The staff was helpful and the grounds were very clean. A lot of fantastic day trips close by to explore as well as great wineries. Our favorite place to eat was BERNIE's (recommended by Enota)...

Great weekend getaway in North Georgia. One of our favorite campgrounds we've ever camped at. Kids loved riding their bikes all over the campground. Had fun hiking to the falls (very steep), jumping on trampolines and just playing. We also enjoyed the unlimited access to the farm animals. We loved the Saturday night bonfire with the staff promoting storytelling. One...

I was very skeptical about this location due to the fact of it having a religious background. However, that worked in our favor for keeping out the rif-raft! My girlfriend and I spent 4 days and 3 nights here this past weekend (10/27-10/30), could not of picked a better weekend. We came up from SW Florida to see the Fall...

You are right - Enota is awesome and yes, our bathrooms are extremely clean. Also just a small clarification, we have no religious affiliations - Enota is just Enota. For a fun family cabin or camping Thanksgiving mountain vacation just give us a call 706-896-9966 or visit our website using the link above.

We took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. Enota is centrally located around all of the North Georgia hikes, wineries and towns, including Helen. We have a 32 foot fifth wheel and the back window looked out over a wonderful stream. Most of the campground is for tenters so it wasn't crowded at all during the week. The campground is...

Wonderful place, lots to do and see, great staff and facilities. Visitors are enthusiastic and friendly. Location in the middle of the North Georgia Mountains, close to the peak of both tray and bald mountains, and the Appalachian Trail make it a great place to camp in a tent, or in a recreation vehicle, or a pop up, or in...
