What a busy week it’s been getting this place all ready for opening day. Cleaning and organizing for hours on end, and working out the kinks on our brand-spanking-new range oven. Everyone up here is excited to start hosting guests and hikers once again. Looks like Monday will be a stunningly sunny and clear day for hikers. Temps at the lodge should start out cool in the 30s but have no problem rising up into the mid 50s. As mid-week draws near, the chances for rain increase.
GSMNP recently announced this past week that mask wearing will not be required for visitors to the Smokies while inside federal buildings or concessions like LeConte Lodge at this time. Prospective visitors looking for the latest COVID-19 information and what they will experience at the lodge to start the new season should check out our website. We will of course announce any future updates through this blog.
