Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Surrounded by 2,600 acres of nature in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and 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. A wide-ranging renovation completed in 2013 revamped much of the property and added a number of outdoor recreational offerings. 

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 outdoor 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. The property recently introduced the sky slide, a five-story inflatable water slide. 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.

We enjoyed the style of the resort, being from about the mid 1900's, but with a very clean and upscale presentation. They have managed to keep an old treasure rather classy. The food was excellent, as well as the drinks.

Lodge rooms have no TV but that didn't bother us. We watched NBA finals in the sports bar.

Lovely mountain scenery, natural setting, historic venue, casual and comfortable, nice drive up and down the mountain to get there (!) Staff pleasant. Not "stuffy" or overly formal, just homey and nice. Big bedroom window open with ceiling fan--so pleasant.
