Message from Bill:

As an avid hiker myself, I would be delighted if you include Mountain Meadows Lodge in your plans. The AT crosses the property, so you are only a few steps away from a well-deserved respite. Stop by the inn for a quick breakfast or lunch or even a meal with a Guinness or two.

Bring your  AT Passport when you come.

Mountain Meadows Lodge is a wedding venue. Not a hostel. Please act accordingly - here's an example: don't walk through the dining room in your boxers while brushing your teeth. Please do not expect services on the weekends when we are doing a wedding.
