We stayed at the Sunset Terrace Cabins and were pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort, considering that these are more rustic than lodge rooms. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows, The room and bathroom were on the older side, but clean overall. Loved having a fridge and microwave in the room, and lots of family-friendly choices on cable TV. The one issue we had was a noisy heater/AC unit, but when we used the fan-only option, it was quiet. Also, despite the fact that there was a family with 3 active boys next-door, we couldn't hear them. Impressive! The nearby camp store offers coffee, breakfast, snacks, and ice - very convenient. And, it was wonderful to be just a short walk from the Visitors' Center so that we could take advantage of an early morning bird hike with a naturalist. We would definitely stay here again but would make sure to reserve a room earlier as the cabins are currently the only option for lodging (other than camping) in Mammoth Cave NP.

Sunset Terrace Rooms are the best!

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.

Some unexpected issues

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.
