We stayed at the Amicalola Lodge for one night before heading out to the Lynn Foote Hike Inn early the next morning. Upon arrival I was impressed by the friendly staff took care of our check in information. We took our key and promptly headed to our room. The room was very nice! The view of the mountains from the hotel room window was breath taking. I had dinner at the restaurant inside the Lodge and the food was amazing. Don’t be fooled by the buffet style restaurant. The food is great. Going to the Lynn Foote Hike Inn was the main reason for the trip but to be honest when I departed to hike the 5.5 miles to the Hike Inn I missed the Lodge. I’ll definitely be back soon.
