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 zip-lining through the treetops, 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.

We enjoyed everything from the polite reception staff, the fantastic meals and service, the room with our own fireplace, Terrence the bartender who waited on us like we were royalty in the bar and gave us little known facts about Dirty Dancing as well as let us read the actual movie script. We will definitely return and have even started talking to friends to come back next year! It was a magical stay and to top it all off met new friends during our stay! Thank you Mountain Lake Lodge!!!!!

We are senior citizens, the stairs we had to traverse were difficult for us. We had to call for help to off load our luggage from the car and the reverse when we left, but the staff was very good about helping.
