Housing Descriptions

There is plenty of space to pitch your tent on our beautiful campus. Spend your days under a shady tree and your nights under a starry sky. Enjoy the great outdoors knowing that a bathroom and shower are just a few steps away. Bathrooms and showers will be available for use in designated areas. 

Cabins are spacious and nestled throughout the campus. Each cabin offers a dorm-style bunking area and private twin rooms with shared stalls, showers, and sinks. All cabin rates are based on shared space. Linens are provided but beds are not made up. *Private room within the cabin is available on a first come basis. 

All hotel rooms have a private bathroom, table, and chairs, heating and air conditioning, complimentary toiletries, and bed and bath linens. These hotels are located up a steep hill with stairs, boardwalk and walking paths to the main areas of the campus. Standard rooms have two queen beds. Some connecting rooms are available. 

Deluxe hotel rooms are larger rooms with either 2 queen beds or 1 king bed, a deluxe tub and a mini-fridge. The deluxe rooms in the Welcome Center are an easy, flat walk to the Levine Center where meals are served and most of the action takes place. Some connecting rooms are available.

All cottages are brand new with a kitchenette, private patio, bathroom with walk-in shower, king-sized bed and sleeper sofa. These beautiful cottages are located on our new boardwalk with both stair and ramp access to the main areas of the campus. There is a minimum of two people per cottage.

“Ramah Darom is a breath of calm in a busy, confusing world. It has also been a place of beginnings for me: Limmud was my first introduction to the Atlanta Jewish community, it was the birthplace of the chavura I’m a part of now, and Ramah Darom was where my husband and I were married and began our life together. I would say it’s pretty important to both of us, and we look forward to returning as often as possible as a family.”
