Lakes is one of my favorite huts. Weather is always intense. It's exposed, and has beautiful views all around. An hour and a half hike from the summit of Washington, near the AT, and many other great trails. Good food, great crew and lots of fun activities and things to learn. Always a great sense of community.

We decided to make the trek up Mt. Washington with our avid 5 year old hiker. We had stayed at the lonesome lake hut a few weeks prior and summited Cannon. We decided we'd make the attempt up Washington. We'd take the hike slow and make it fun for our daughter who enjoys rock scrambling and we knew she'd love...

After a long day of hiking up Tuckerman Ravine, we were so pleased to find a welcoming croo, a comfortable bunk and a warm meal at Lakes of the Clouds hut. This was our first experience with the huts and we were not disappointed! I would recommend arriving as early as possible to get the best choice of bunks, but...

After a long hike, the AMC huts are like a little oasis of comfort. They are cozy and the crews (or "croos") are very welcoming...always friendly and willing to take the time explain how things work. Lakes of the Clouds is the one of the larger huts and one of the most popular so reservations are a must. The dining...

My son and I parked at the Pinkham Notch visitor center and hiked the Tuckerman Ravine Trail to the Crawford Path crossover to reach the Lakes of the Clouds hut, and what a welcome sight it was! Lakes of the Clouds is the largest AMC hut and was filled to capacity with 96 people. Our bunk room held 12 people,...

My wife and I recently did the Presidential Traverse from north to south staying one night at the AMC Madison Springs Hut and the second night at Lakes of the Clouds.

The AMC hut system really is everything you could hope for in a real mountain accommodation. Bursting into this place after a long hike is like Heaven, even better when you know you get to rest your bones for the rest of the evening. Meals (breakfast and dinner included) are served family style, are filling and come with good company....

This is one of the busiest huts, so you will want to get there early to claim your bunk. The food was good and plentiful, the croo knowledgeable and engaging, and who wouldn't want to spend the night (safely) just below the Mighty Mount Washington?! Can't wait to go back!

A bit pricey but very nice. Great environment. The crew in the hut was AMAZING, they are fun and make it look easy. Bring ear-plugs as the wind blows through the cracks around the windows in the different rooms. Besides this, it is a great experience. Ate well, slept reasonably well (my fault for not having ear-plugs).
