Enotah is a modern hunting cabin. It has one bedroom which can be furnished with a queen size bed or two bunkbeds. The living has a wood fireplace, and the porch is heated with a small wood stove. The hike'e (pronounced "hickey-ay") is a Hawaiian sleeping couch. A small tankless gas water heater is mounted on the outside of the cabin.
Cherokee legend tells of a great flood that swept over the land. Everyone that inhabited the land died except a few Cherokee families that sought refuge in a giant canoe. The canoe ran aground at the summit of Enotah. Having no wild game to hunt and no place to plant vegetation, the Great Spirit killed all of the trees on the top of the mountain so the surviving people could plant their crops. They continued planting until the water subsided.
