Description:

Lakes of the Clouds Hut, built in 1915, is the highest elevation hut in the chain of shelters maintained by the Appalachian Mountain Club in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The current structure, which has been substantially renovated several times over the years, is built on the site of an earlier shelter constructed in 1901. The hut sleeps 90, and sits at an elevation of 5,030'. Due to the often extreme weather conditions at these elevations, this hut is only open May 31-September 15 each year. Like all AMC huts, a stay at Lakes of the Clouds Hut includes dinner and breakfast (included in the fee for overnight stays).
