Map & Directions
Rooms & 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 in 2012-13 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. 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, rooms do not include televisions. However, between exploring the outdoors, dining at the HARVEST 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.
