We took the kids up for a couple days just to get away. The views from the rooms are spectacular, and the falls are beautiful. The food was ok, buffet style for breakfast AND dinner. I was told you could order off the menu too, but they were "at full capacity" so the only option was buffet. We ate it...

Two couples stayed at this lodge for 1 night. It is a pretty lodge with a beautiful view of the mountains. The staff is friendly and willing to help if you need something. The rooms have been updated and are very nice and clean. The reason I only rated this hotel a 3 is because of a few things I...

The Amicalola Falls Lodge feels more like a luxury hotel than a lodge in a state park. The rooms are comfortable and up-to-date, if a little on the small side. I'm pretty sure all rooms have a mountain view, so don't worry about that. The acoustics aren't all that great; we could hear the conversation from our next door neighbors...

We rented a cabin this past weekend for my husband, my son and myself. The size was great for three people and those working at the lodge and visitors center were very friendly. Cabin however was lacking for the price they wanted. If I paid $100 a night I would have expected what I got and been fine. The bedroom...

We spent our anniversary at Amicalola Falls Lodge and were very surprised at the "luxury" that awaited us ... the room was very spacious, well-equipped, and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and modern. The picture window valley view is spectacular. The lodge staff was most friendly and expeditious. John, with whom I made our reservation over the telephone, was very...

We stayed here a couple of years ago before the renovations and it is like a brand new hotel. The interior now matches the gorgeous views on the outside. I strongly recommend the junior suite--Spacious with a private patio or balcony.

I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely warm atmosphere at the lodge. It looks like it has been renovated fairly recently so the rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. The views on a clear day are fabulous and there is plenty of outdoor seating or on a cool day a couple of open fires where you can sit, have...

Facilitated a management retreat for 3 days and two nights. Although I was working, I had a chance to fully appreciate Amicalola Falls Lodge. Beautiful view overlooking mountain range. Lot of fun sampling the southern-style buffet lunches and dinners. Comfortable rooms compare well to any mid-range chain hotel room. Relaxing atmosphere throughout the complex. Life is good when you are...

We went another couple celebrating their 10th. They got married here 10 yrs ago,so got the same room they had. Their room was wonderful and ours was very nice. The views were great. The staff was accommodating. The buffet breakfast was as good as you should probably expect a buffet to be.

As we droveup the rather steep incline road to the lodge in the waning afternoon, we could see the lodge reflecting pale light. We made it into the lobby just in time to see the sun go down reflecting the glorious pinks and oranges across the valley below. It was stunning! Our room was of a rustic design but there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High in the North Georgia Mountains is Amicalola Falls State Park home of Amicalola Falls Lodge. Named after the Cherokee word for “tumbling waters” Amicalola Falls is one of the most popular state parks in Georgia. The park’s namesake is the 729-foot falls: the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River. The park is also the start of the 8-mile approach trail to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,150-mile Appalachian Trail. The Lodge was built in 1990 by the State of Georgia, with 56 guestrooms in the main lodge and 14 cabins along with a gift shop, meeting space and a mountain view restaurant. The lodge rooms vary from standard hotel rooms with 2 double beds, loft suites that can sleep 6, to king bed suites with private balconies. The Lodge also is home to The Maple Restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The Lodge rests on 829 acres with on-site activities that include stream or pond fishing, as well as more than twelve miles of hiking trails, several centering on viewing the spectacular 729-foot waterfall. Amicalola Falls Lodge features more than 4,000 square feet of meeting space that can host groups and social events consisting of up to 150 people in traditional meeting spaces as well as a unique outdoor veranda setting. The Lodge’s spectacular view, peaceful setting, and exceptional service make it a destination not to be missed while in the North Georgia Mountains. ... more   less
