Mammoth Cave Lodge Announces Completion of Renovations

The Lodge at Mammoth Cave, located at Mammoth Cave National Park in south central Kentucky, has announced the completion of major renovations to the property’s restaurant, café, and gift shops.

In addition, the organization is continuing to remodel its guestrooms and cottages.

“The Lodge at Mammoth Cave is excited to announce its new management under Ortega National Parks and the completion of major renovations to the Green River Grill, Spelunker’s Café and our three gift shops,” said Mike Davis, general manager of The Lodge at Mammoth Cave. “The Lodge allows guests to immerse themselves into the beauty of the area as well as easy access to adventure as it is only steps from the cave’s Historic Entrance, providing a place for guests to make lasting memories with family and friends.”

The Lodge completed extensive renovations to its three shops, Kentucky Gifts, Cave Gift Store, and Caver’s Camp Store, which all received new fixtures.

Renovations were made to the kitchen of the lodge’s Green River Grill, and the restaurant now also includes a buffet breakfast.

The on-site ice cream and coffee shop, Spelunkers Café & Ice Cream Parlor, underwent the removal of an inner wall to make the shop larger and is designed in the style of a traditional American diner.

Both restaurants feature all-local products from Kentucky vendors.

The Lodge at Mammoth continues to update its guest rooms and cottages.

Plans for guestroom and cottage interior renovations will be finalized in the upcoming months.

Mammoth Cave became a national park in 1941 and the existing lodging was built from the 1930s through the 1990s. 

The hotel offers a total of 54 units at different locations including the Woodland Cottages, Hotel Cottages, Sunset Terrace and the Heritage Trail Rooms to accommodate its guests.  

Many of the lodging units remain historically significant, but also have modern amenities that are expected by current-day travelers.
