WHAT MAKES MULBERRY GAP SPECIAL

Our fall Escape brings us to a private Escape in the mountains of North Georgia. Be prepared for warm days and cool nights. This family-owned camp is all ours for the weekend. Imagine a cross between a resort, a summer camp, a campground/"glampground," and an outdoor adventure hostel. That's Mulberry Gap! ⁠

We will be surrounded by some of the best trails for mountain biking, gravel cycling, hiking, trail running, and outdoor exploration in the southeast; Pinhoti, Bear Creek, Mountaintown Creek, Windy Gap, and Milma along with forest service roads, which connect the trail options and can be accessed right out of the driveway. Adventure awaits.

"Let me tell you about the AdventurUs Woman: First & foremost, she is brave. Because it takes a lot of fucking balls to show up to an event like this! To carve out time for ourselves, to show up when you don't know anyone, to participate & be present... that's bravery." Brie K., Bend Particpant Find the full post here.

FAQs:

Do you offer payment plans?

Eventbrite is no longer offering payment plans and we know this was helpful to folks for budgeting reasons. If you are in a situation that requires a payment plan contact us at info@adventuruswomen.com (putting 'Payment Plan' in the subject) and we will work with you on a custom option.

Do you offer scholarships?

At this time we do not have scholarships for our Escapes, but we hope to at a later date.

To ensure your Escape experience is unforgettable much of our planning is finalized in the months leading up to your Escape weekend. Scheduling of guides, permits, class locations, food planning, goodie bags and all the little things that make of our events great get finalized manually. Cancellations within this window occur costs that we cannot recoup. Last minute cancellations within 30 days are even harder as we often cannot fill the vacated spot on short notice. Our cancellation policy ensures the best possible experience for everyone.

Please note: If you have booked an Escape that is cancelled due to Force Majeure (including the COVID-19 pandemic) you will receive a full 100% credit to use towards an alternative event with the same value with a date in the current or next calendar year. This travel credit will be automatically applied to your reservation. No financial refunds will be issued for any reason.

We strongly recommend purchasing trip protection.

MULBERRY GAP HISTORY... from the owners.

This multi-level wooded property was beautifully designed by George Mitchell of Dalton, Georgia. Previously a mountain retreat for his family and friends, George brought in three sleeping cabins, a camp kitchen and rustic dining hall. He cleared spacious camping areas and added enormous hand built picnic tables. He provided a small bathhouse on the hill leading to the camp area. Two small ponds, fed by natural springs trickle into a brook which runs behind the cabins and camping area. Small bridges, viewing areas and paths were constructed as well. Trout were stocked in the ponds for his grandkids. Wildflowers, wild mushrooms, butterflies, moths, salamanders and turtles were plentiful as were rhododendron bushes, hardwood and hemlock trees. An outdoor paradise!

The upper portion of the property was eventually equipped with a home, barn, pasture, ferrier shed and large workshop. His hobby was mules and horses. Hitching posts as well as large chains concreted into the ground remain on the property which formerly secured the livestock. All utilities were installed underground before adding a large circular, paved driveway. Nothing interferes with the natural beauty of the property!

Meanwhile, we Floridians were getting antsy from back to back hurricanes, sweltering heat and skyrocketing land prices. We were tipped off to the beauty of north Georgia and began making occasional trips to scout out an acre or two for camping purposes. While scouting the area, we learned of the property at Mulberry Gap. Purely out of curiosity, we requested to see what was behind the closed gates. We took the tour with the owner, learned it’s history and fell in love at first sight. The wheels began turning!

We began to imagine building a business on the 15 acres based on home away from home comforts for outdoor enthusiasts that love the outdoors but not the hassle that often goes with packing and unpacking endless gear. After a few months, the arrangements were made and we jumped in on a wing and a prayer! Leaving established and routine lives in Vero Beach was scary, but new hopes, dreams and challenges are exciting.
