We enjoyed the others guests company during the family style meals and after dinner around the stove.Great place to relax and rest for the trip down the... More

You cant really put into words what it is like hiking up the mountain to this spot. Its challenging to say the least. Especially in rain, slick, and very windy conditions. The first view of the lodge is what makes it all worth it. If you are expecting lavish accomadations..well..this might not be the place. But if you are expecting... More

I first visited the LeConte Lodge in 1969 and have never tired of going back. I have hiked all of the trails in all kinds of weather. Each trip is special and memorable. The Lodge is a welcome reward at the end of the trail. The lodge setting, the structures, the cabins and even the meals have a certain rustic... More

Easily the most rewarding part of our recent trip in November 2013 to the smoky mountains national park. Fun, moderately strenuous hike up, lots of beautiful scenery. It actually snowed/sleeted on our hike up to Leconte, but we were more than happy to make the trip and be rewarded w/ hot chocolate upon arriving. The cabins were rustic but comfy.... More

My husband & I hiked up Alum Cave Trail (it's a beast going up) to the lodge & stayed for one night. At one point I was pretty sure there really wasn't a lodge & the trail would go on forever, lol. Once we got there though it was amazing! Very much a throwback to pre technology days. The staff... More

They take reservation requests late in the fall. (lottery or via phone) Then later on a waiting list for cancellations. Only way up is to hike one of 5 trails (I've hiked them all) with Alum Cave Bluffs being the shortest one (5+ miles) (easiest also) and The Boulevard being the longest and a bit tricky at times. If there... More

This was our first hiking trip as a couple and being able to stay in a building overnight, was the only way I would go on an overnight hike. I am happy that I did this. This is one of the best things we have ever done in our lives. We have traveled quite a bit, but this was unique.... More

We have hiked to Mt. Leconte 3 times now with friends. And each time, we get to experience something new! We have used the Boulevard trail every time going up (8 miles/6 hours) and go down the Alum Cave trail (5 miles/4 hours). The hike to Leconte lodge is long and tiring but you get beautiful vistas of the mountains... More

I love the hike up Alum because of the great views up the trail. It is hard to get reservations so start trying in late October for 2014 dates. When you pack your backpack and put in what you think you need, take out about half of that and you will be fine! The Llama wrangles bring up fresh eggs,... More

We have made this a regular family tradition. My husband visited LeConte with his family in the 70's and we have been going back since our son was 5. He hiked up the Alum cave trail without any trouble. He had a blast and so did we. Each year we submit our dates and as long as you are somewhat... More
