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 newly renovated 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.

The only thing a didn't like were the pillows, they aren't fluffy and I woke up with neck pain. Also, there was a constant bad odor in parts of the building that was off putting, I think it came from one of the bathrooms.

I went with a friend and we had a great trip. The food at the Harvest was delicious. The staff was so helpful and friendly. We got a great deal through Travelzoo, the room was $89 per night plus taxes but we got credit vouchers worth $100 in total at the hotel so we are 3 meals there using the vouchers. We enjoyed reading the signs and seeing the locations used during the filming of Dirty Dancing. Thanks Angela

My fiancé and I went for a weekend away, and the experience was more than we could have asked for! Quiet, cozy lodging, tons of areas to explore, the staff (especially Anthony, Hannah, and Cam) were amazingly friendly and helpful! We will absolutely go back again!

Great deal! Room was nice and the property was nice. Loved walking around to see the filming locations. I would love to go back in the summer when it is warmer so that we could actually use the pool and volleyball court

Would have loved to have a TV in the room. Apparently not all rooms have a TV. We were staying with two toddlers so that would’ve been nice. The staff was nice to give us games for them though

My adult daughter and I spent a couple days at the lodge. We probably would not have gone had there not been a good discount. The lodge is nice The staff was friendly the area was nice with the fall foliage We enjoyed the historical background however the rooms could be more updated. And perhaps cleaner. The room was dusty and tired looking We did enjoy opening the window for the fresh mountain air. It would be helpful to have a room fridge and perhaps a microwave There is no t.v. but we knew that coming in so we brought a lap top to use with the internet. The food is good but not outstanding I would recommend the pork chops they were pretty good .. We had credits from booking with travel zoo which basically paid for our meals. However we had a nice time seeing the area and doing some hiking On a side note be sure to watch Dirty Dancing before you come since it was filmed there.
