Stayed there with my friends last Friday night during our Presidential Traverse trip. This was our very first time staying in a hut. but for those of you who haven't been there yet... this is what I think you should expect. 1. Basic Basic Basic No shower, bunk beds, minimalist amenities, simple dining room, etc. It's a hut in the... More

Lakes of the Clouds is amazing. The setting can't be better. I am glad I did a night there to bag the experience, but it's not something I would prefer to do again over camping. The bunks were uncomfortable and not conducive to a good night of sleep. You are packed into bunk rooms like sardines. The chance of getting... More

Tucked into the craggy side of Mount Washington, this Hut is run by the Appalachian Mountain Club, and offers no-frills bunkhouse accommodations and home-cooked family-style meals. The location provides views that cannot be beat! The hut is accessed via hiking trails, so needless to say it unfortunately is not handicap-accessible.

What a treat to spend the day bagging peaks and logging miles knowing that a warm mealand lodging was waiting at the top. We could drop off our packs, eat a little lunch and then go for a run over the summit of Mt Monroe without any gear. The views from the hut were spectacular. The hut "croo" was incredibly... More

I hiked with a bunch of other families (25 of us) and the Lakes in the Clouds hut was a perfect way to get two days of hiking in on Mount Washington. We were fortunate that the weather was mild and CLEAR - which made for stunning panoramic views from the hut - and a stunning sunset! The food and... More

Don't get me wrong, the dinner was delicious and abundant, especially after a long day hike (we were coming from the Highlands center); the croo - friendly and helpful, and the neighbors were interesting people to meet and talk to, but first of all, the signs leading to this Hut from the Madison hut have no indication that there is...

These AMC huts are a real find, okay you have to stay in a bunk room with others, but the alternative is a heavy pack and a tent. They have a CROO, of college students who wait on you like it was the Four Seasons and cook two great meals... and wait on you and try to help in any... More

What a sight! The ever changing weather, being 'in' the cloud, the persistent wind all made it a great experience. It was our first time at this hut and loved it. The staff is very friendly, very helpful and offered great guidance for our trail choices. I would do it again even if it requires a lot of physical effort... More

We did a 4-day hut-to-hut hike in the middle of June. Lakes was the most disappointing of the 3 huts we stayed in, primarily becuase of the attitude of the staff. We were greeted politely and professionally and were assigned a bunk room (there were 4 in our group). Our plans had been to summit Mt Washington that afternoon but... More

Hiked up Mount Washington on June 15th 2013. There were 9 of us in our group. We booked our stay at Lake of the Clouds months in advance. We were lucky to have perfect weather and an amazing hike! We were in the largest room of the hut. Sleeps 12 people in four sets of triple bunk beds. Each bed... More
