We stayed for two nights at Mammoth Cave in the Sunset Terrace rooms. They are separate from the main lodge and are excellent! The main lodge is undergoing renovations, so we were happy to get any accommodations! The rooms were excellent and they are located in a quiet area near the head of a trail. The rooms have been updated and are some of the best appointed I have ever seen in a national park! There is a microwave, fridge, hair dryer, alarm clock, coffeemaker, plenty of towels, comfy beds and pillows, with a great view out the back window. Each set of the terrace rooms has two chairs out front and a communal outside sitting area, where we ate our breakfast and dinner. It's so quiet and peaceful! We even saw several Wild Turkeys one morning! The rooms are within walking distance to the Visitor Center (about a 5 min walk), and also near the Camp Store and campground. The Sunset Terrace rooms are a great find, and we will definitely stay here again!

I would highly recommend The Lodge at Mammoth Cave if you are looking for a special and unique spot to stay - it is on the edge of Mammoth Cave and next to the visitor center. In the middle of a National Park! The Sunset Terrace rooms were fantastic, great beds, bedding, pillows; heat & a/c; tv/cable and good wifi; and just steps from beautiful trails going into Mammoth Cave National Park. I did a 7 day roadtrip solo across the Midwest-South and this was by far my favorite place I stayed at.

We stayed for two nights at the Sunset Terrace. The rooms were clean and reasonably comfortable, especially given that they are on par property. My only real gripe was the noise made by the heater - every time it turned on, which seemed to have very little to do with the temperature we set it at, it was extremely loud, enough that I had to raise the volume of the TV even to hear it, and it frequently woke us during the night. The price of the stay wasn't unreasonable, but it's high enough that I would think they could get some better units in the rooms.

We stayed in the Subset Terrace cottages because the lodge is undergoing renovation. It was serviceable, basically clean. The bathroom was well-stocked. There is a mini- fridge & microwave. The rooms are not sound proof and the phone didn't work. (Which matters because wi-fi is weak or non-existent.) We arrived after dark and had trouble finding where to check-in because registration is in a temporary place due to the lodge renovation. Some better signage would have been very useful. We will go back but not until the lodge reopens.

Good value

It is always very convenient and cost effective to stay in national parks and here is no exception. We had a star chamber lantern tour booked at 6:15 pm which ended at 8:45 pm and we were able to break off and walk 5 minutes to the cabin. The stars are lovely and we saw a deer on our way back. Staying in the historic cabins also meant no long distance drive back into the park in the morning for our 10 am Domes and Dripstones tour, thus giving us time for a walk to sunset point after a long sleep in. Our only complaint was the bathroom door; it stuck horrible and needs a good microplaning! A little hard to have bathroom privacy when to door doesn’t close without brute force!
