I was part of a hiking group Woman Hikers of East Tennessee. We hiked the Boulevard up and Trillium Gap down. We ran into the llamas on Trllium. The food was awesome. There are now some flushable toilets. That was nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I wish I would have stayed an... More

These rent by the cabin not by the person. So, some cabins may be full and some not at all. We had a 10 person cabin and had 8 people since two canceled. So, you will not sleep with strangers. They have two flushing toilets that are easy to walk to. A pair of flip flops might be worth the... More

I have been at the park many times and for the last 15 years we stay here for one night after our hike w a group of friends. We usually stay at 3 bedroom cabinet. It's very rustic place to stay, no showers & no internet allowing you to enjoy nature and friendship. Meals are tasty and and it's worth... More

There were 19 of us. We had the 3 bedroom cabin and the 2 bedroom cabin. We had to make the reservations and pay over a year in advance. The hike is worth it. We loved our stay. It is rustic-bring a head lamp/flashlight. Staff were fantastic. Food was yummy. We enjoyed our stay. The views are amazing.

My wife and I hiked to the lodge on Friday. It was a very strenuous hike, but well worth the effort. The meals were very hearty and the staff's service was excellent. The cabins were very nice for this mountain top location. Hope to be able to return in the future. Had a meeting with a doe and two baby... More

UH-MAZING!!! This place is not for everyone, but let me tell you what, it's for those who are adventurous, like to hike and be one with nature. I heard about this place from a co-worker who hiked in and stayed at the lodge several years back, and ever since then it's been on my bucket list. My husband isn't into... More

I had an amazing time at LeConte Lodge to top off a difficult hike (at least for me it was hard) up the mountain. The cabin was adequate with double bunk beds, but I am not complaining. This is not a five star place, but it holds its own in terms of charm, friendliness of the staff, and fantastic views.... More

Absolute great trip to LeConte Lodge. It was everything we expected and more! You will absolutely want to do your research so you will be prepared and no what to expect. First off, you will be hiking at least 5.5 miles to get to the top depending on what trail you decide to take. We chose Alum Cave which I... More

I've heard about LeConte Lodge for years, and finally experienced it. More remote than the LenFoot Hike Inn in Ga. also more rustic. Hike 6.2 miles up the Rainbow Falls trail, and back down the BullRun Trail. The trail both ways is typical eastern Smokies forest duft, with plenty of rocks and roots. Late May is a really good time... More
