Close to the Appalachian Trail, the Mountain Lake Lodge has been in business since before the Civil War and has welcomed guests since the 1930s. 

Movie buffs will recognize the sandstone face of the Mountain Lake Lodge as the resort featured in the film "Dirty Dancing," but in recent years, the Lodge has reinvented itself as an adventure destination. With 22 miles of hiking and biking trails, fishing, rafting and kayaking on the New River or exploring the treetops in a zip-line aerial adventure, there's lots for guests to explore. Note that a number of activities require additional fees, but complimentary activities include lawn chess, shuffleboard, bocce and use of the outdoor pool and hot tub. 

Rooms offer king, queen or twin beds. North Side rooms feature views of the property's expansive front lawn, and Suites add a sitting area and jetted bathtub. It's worth mentioning that because the lodge is meant to be a true getaway and an older property, rooms do not include televisions or air conditioners (fans are included in all rooms). However, between exploring the outdoors, dining at Harvest, the farm-to-table restaurant, and chatting around the fireplace in the lobby or over drinks at the Stony Creek Tavern, you should be able to get along without it.

It was far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow to quiet time. Really liked that there were no tv's in the rooms.
Other Comments
It is an older facility with some rough edges, but the location was just what the doctor ordered. The chef at the restaurant made us some sandwiches to go before they were open.

We were not given good directions for the road to return to 460 and wound up spending a LOT of time lost on dirt roads.

I assumed that when mountain lodge advertised on travel zoo, they had a goal. If their goal was to get me to come back for further business, they have succeeded!
