What a lovely place to stay for a great price! Nothing fancy but spotless clean, comfortable, and quiet. Food was good too. The view of the park was spectacular. Warning, if you are going to hike down to the falls, remember you have to come back up and its a steep grade. Its wonderful and I am glad I did it, but I do regret being so out of shape!
The view, the view, the view. Take advantage of the rocking chairs at the back of the lodge.
The Hike Inn is about halfway between the Amicalola Falls visitors center and Springer Mountain. There is a 5 mile hiking trail leading to the Inn and no access by road. "Inn" is a funny term as the lodge is more of a hostel. But it does have 20 rooms with bunk beds, a shower facility in a separate room and breakfast and dinner are served. The Inn is eco-friendly, so make sure to pack out all your trash. And clean your plate at dinnertime!
The Inn is located 5 miles from civilization. Well, not really because there is a road leading to it which employees use. But its an alternative to carrying a bunch of camping gear. There are bunkrooms, shower facilities and toilets for those who don't want to abandon all of civilization. And the Inn is run at least in part on solar power.
It is pricey for a lodge. $65 per person. But that does include a place to sleep, shower (linens and towels), dinner and breakfast.
