We visited for two nights in August 2016. It was my husband and I plus our kids ages 10 and 12. While we are fit and active people, we did not train or prepare extra for the hike. It was fine, but as all other reviews state, it was strenuous! We took the Trillium Gap Trail due to Alum's weekday... More

5th visit. Hiked from Newfound Gap up Boulevard Trail 8 miles up and down to summit. Stayed in small cabin and enjoyed to solitude and ambiance rustic as it was. Love the sleeping and the big, filling meals. Weather is a constant - always changing and quickly. Be prepared

After years of lottery and waitlist requests, finally got a one-night reservation on short notice. This hike/stay was on my bucket list and honestly I had mixed reactions to various facets of the experience... I am appreciative of the opportunity to complete this item but continue to be frustrated by the lack of availability to non-locals (we travelled over 900... More

As usual, the most beautiful hike with breathtaking scenery. I was however, very disappointed in the service this year. I specifically wanted the weekend of Halloween to enjoy the festivities of the season with the crew. Nothing was done and the interaction for the staff was minimal. I have made this hike every fall for the last 5 years, although... More

I just stayed here for one night earlier this week. Some of us in the group have done this each year for many years. Location atop Le Conte best of planet. You have to get reservations a year ahead of time. We stayed in cabin 10 which, like all the rest of the lodge, is rustic but what you need.... More

The Lodge at Mount LeConte is a singularly unique experience. First, as you probably know if you are reading this review, it is located at the top of Mt. LeConte, the 4th highest peak in the eastern United States. It is hard to get reservations, and is accessible only via a strenuous 4 hour hike (at a minimum). And once... More

On October 1, we hiked up Alum Cave and spent the afternoon at the lodge. The staff was so friendly, and he had such a fun time. You are able to purchase a sack lunch, and also coffee or hot chocolate in the dining hall (we didn't know this, and missed out.) The lodge is beautiful, and we can't wait... More

We hiked Alum Cave Trail to the top, ate lunch and returned. We bagged our lunch, so I am not sure how good the sack lunch was. But, the $3 cup of endless coffee was great. We enjoyed a cozy place to sit and eat lunch after a vigorous hike and the Lodge was perfect.

This rustic lodge was an awesome experience! The views were spectacular, the food was hearty and delicious. The staff shared Southern hospitality and very helpful. The hike up Bull Head and down Rainbow Falls was strenuous. Allow plenty of time to stop and enjoy the views.

We hiked the Trilliam Gap trail to LeConte Lodge. We stayed in one of the cabins which I would recommend. It was an awesome experience. no electricity, no running water BUT they do have flush toilets!!!! The cabin was clean, the staff helpful but allowed you to venture out on your own. The dinner and breakfast were fantastic. Lots of... More
