Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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 disc golf, lawn chess, tennis, 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 the perfect place to go for a family reunion. It was quiet and conducive for lots of reminiscing. We attended the first wine dinner which was very well done.

I loved staying in the old stone lodge! It was fun to go around the grounds and see the scenes from Dirty Dancing! Also enjoyed several of the hiking trails.

The only problem we had was the fog. We couldn't fully enjoy the area because of it. Of course, that's not the fault of the lodge.

I really loved the "nostalgia" of the hotel. What an amazing history. It was very cozy and quaint. The live jazz at night was really excellent as well.
