Why We Love This Deal

This resort's storied history is about as lengthy as its activities list. Originally built in the late 1800s, Mountain Lake Lodge was a popular spot for music and entertainment long before serving as backdrop for the hit movie 'Dirty Dancing.' Past Travelzoo guests have given it high marks for its friendly staff, delectable cuisine and picturesque setting (it is, after all, in the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains).

Save up to 55% on stays this summer and enjoy a variety of amenities and activities, including an outdoor pool, zip line course, archery and Zorb racing. You'll also receive a daily $50 resort credit.

Nice spot. Historic. Great food. But, certainly off the beaten path.

I was so excited that you partnered with this resort! We had a super time swimming, enjoying movie sights and driving a golf cart!

We found the staff to be very unfriendly and unhelpful. There were no double rooms left so I lost 30% of the value of my voucher and they made no effort to compensate for this.

Lovely old lodge. The lake is gone now but the place is still beautiful. Nice hike to the mt top directly behind the lodge!

We would have liked a tv in our room for relaxing in the evening but certainly could live without it.

We really enjoyed shooting 5 stand with Mike on the mountain top. He was a great instructor and the view + atmosphere + history of the place will make a great memory. Thanks Mike!

12 of us took my Mom for the Dirty Dancing nostalgia. The staff is top notch, from the Harvest restaurant to the front desk to the Outfitters activities center. The setting is serene in the mountains. The food onsite was outstanding, had dinner twice and breakfast three times and nothing to complain about, rave reviews. Just an absolutely warm and inviting property.

One thing about this resort is not much young children can do. I have 3 yr and 5 yr old, the pay activities are not right for them.
