If you're looking for a high-mountain wilderness experience par excellence in the Great Smoky Mountains, this is it. LeConte Lodge has no vehicular access, so you spend a day hiking in and a day hiking out. We hiked in from Newfound Gap, but there are other trails leading to Mt. LeConte. Our hike was 8 miles, partly on the Appalachian... More

Wonderful lodge only for those that hike to it. No electricity. Propane heat and lights. Real toilets. Family style delishish meals. They accommodated my gluten allergy. Beautiful views that are amazing in all seasons. I even saw two bears! The staff was very helpful. We will go again this year.

LeConte Lodge is one of only five hike-inns in the United States. That means...the only way you can stay there is to hike over five miles to the top of Mt. LeConte. If you love to hike, this is an unforgettable experience. There are several trails up and down, but having been there numerous times, I recommend coming up and... More

A very special place to visit! The lodge has great history and is a great experience. First you have to be in good shape to hike to this lodge. There are 5 different trials to get there. The longest is 8 miles which is Boulevard. The shortest is Alum which is closed Monday - Thursday until the improvements are finished.Once... More

After an impromptu hike to the lodge in June, my husband and I found out the same weekend that we had been picked from the wait list to stay the first weekend in July. In June we went up and down Alum the same day. As we had never been to the bluffs before, it was a challenging but doable... More

Last week the lodge took in some dehydrated hikers that would have not made it back down the mountain before dark. They pretty much saved their lives. They said that the food was great and there was a medic that took care of them in the middle of the night. Thank you!

You know the saying it the trip not the destination? Well for me and my five friends, this was a personal challenge to complete the hike, and the lodge was about the perfect finish. Sure it's rustic, but it fits with whole trip. Rooms were exactly as described, with limited services, or amentities, but again, it fit right in. I... More

For more than 20 years I've ended my summer with a stay at the LeConte Lodge with a large group of friends -- it's a special place and I will continue to make the trek until my body one day gives out. The cabins come in several sizes, but I've only stayed in ones with 2- or 3-bedrooms. In those... More

Although I would much rather be posting a glowing review of a wonderful family adventure spent summiting and spending the night at Mount LeConte, I have instead been provoked into writing my first truly Terrible review for TripAdvisor. Thankfully it is my only Terrible review out of 20 reviews so far, but this one both expresses disappointment and comes with... More

Our three generation family experience was supposed to be a very memorable one for two nights at LeConte Lodge. What a disappointment. We hiked up the challenging Boulevard Trail with three children ages 2 to 8. The hike went fine but the atmosphere up top was not pleasant for a number of reasons: - we were surrounded by very loud... More
