We were 3 couples (all over 65) here for kayaking, hiking, and biking in Sept/Oct. Over the past 20 years or so we've racked up well over 50 nights in GTNP . . . most of them at Signal Mountain . . . and the lodge's proximity to launch sites and trailheads has always been the main draw. Cabins are clean and reasonably commodious with comfortable beds and good heating. Walls are a bit thin, so you can hear plumbing noise (especially showers) and the murmur of conversation from adjoining units, The very good on-site restaurants, gas station, and camp store add to the location's convenience. All staff that we encountered at registration, in the store and shops and in the restaurants was not only courteous, competent, and cheerful but also knowledgeable about park activities and locations. And If you come knowing that the operant word in describing SML is "rustic" or, maybe "upscale rustic" (this isn't the Ritz Carlton or even the Hampton Inn), then you won't be disappointed. Of course, like all facilities in GTNP, the views are breathtaking.
Here are a few things about the lodge that you may not find in their literature:
WiFi is available in the main lodge along with two computers, a pair of printers, and a large screen TV.
Hairdryers are either in the rooms or available at the front desk.
If you don't like your soap/shampoo from a gel dispenser, bring your own.
There is an on-site do-it-yourself laundry facility.
