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.

Restaurant food and service is ok, but not bad. Bartender super nice, but needs more training on mixing drinks - finishes everything with a shot of soda water. Really enjoyed ropes course at adventure center. Rooms in the main lodge are small, but clean and comfortable. Loved the window shutters and sleeping with windows open. Hotel staff is very accommodating and friendly. They do a nice job of promoting the Dirty Dancing tie in without being overdone. The nightly camp fire was a great ending to each day.

I enjoyed getting away from the normal hustle and bustle of life. Loved that this place was not crowded and that you are there with family to just relax and be a family.

The lodge is 2 floors with no elevator. So if you can't handle steps, request the first floor.

Mountain Lake Lodge is absolutely beautiful. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. There is so much to do there with the adventure center and the game room and the hiking trails. The Fourth of July fireworks were amazing!

We signed up to do the treetop obstacle course and one of my sons (who has special needs) needed some extra help. Our guide, Adam was extremely patient with him, as were the other guides who came to help. He ended up not being able to finish it, but we're so happy that he got to try it and that he did some of it! My son is so proud of doing the part that he did - the guides were so positive and kind and patient with him that he didn't feel bad about not finishing it. I really can't say enough good things about them.
