Definitely we will return as this is a truly a lovely, unique, and relaxing location with friendly folk who want to provide good service, and I encourage others to stay here. All of the staff was helpful whenever anything was requested. Of course, we were here this past weekend during what is basically the off season, with what appears to... More

We arrived late Friday night and were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff. Our room was on the main level of the lodge Rm 109. Our view was in the back of the lodge, not much to look at other than a hill and the entrance for registration. We were a little surprised by the size of the room,... More

The place is simply gorgeous, the view on the lake at sunset very romantic. The bar had live music and good beer, so we decided to stay for dinner. The staff is friendly, the price not too expensive, the room really nice. I cannot tell you about the bison or the salmon, but the vegetarian choice was very limited (just... More

We booked the Valentines Weekend Special, The weather turned out to be hideous especially the access road Rte 700 was terrible. The weather was not the lodges fault but their care of the roads on the premises was terrible and severely lacking. We left a day early so we wouldn't get snowed in. Our room in the lodge was clean... More

I had the "Time of my Life" at Mountain Lake Lodge. If you love the movie Dirty Dancing and LOVE the late Patrick Swayze like I did..... you will LOVE this Lodge. Over 1/2 of the movie was filmed here and the actors/actresses stayed in the Lodge while filming in 1986/1987. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary as well as... More

Booked into Blueberry Cottages for the weekend. Weather took a turn for the worse. Mountain Lake Staff phoned me to express their concern. Moved us into a cottage they were sure would be warm and safe for us. Phoned us later in the evening to make sure we were safe and comfortable. Awesome service. Mountain Lake Outfitters supplied us with... More

This property is still as beautiful as it was in the moving Dirty Dancing. Everything about this resort was beautiful, except the lake is not fully restored yet. The rooms are gorgeous, beautifully decorated and maintained. We came with our children and really enjoyed having drinks and family time on the deck (where it was screened in). We ended up... More

This was our second visit to Mountain Lake Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay as part of the New Year's Eve Package. The room was great and the dining experience superb. The lodge combines a good mix of old lodge feel with updated amenities. The package price was very reasonable. We are looking forward to doing it again... More

Spent New Year's Eve at the hotel. Very nice dance that night. But the food was poorly prepared, reheated, not grilled a total loss. I ate four meals there, none were acceptable. Our waitress complained about being sick (cough, cough). The fire alarm at 5 AM was a nice touch, a get out of bed early call. Eventually a guest... More

We live a short drive from the lodge and chose to travel up for a little mountain snow, dinner, and warm cider on 12/14/13. What a way to ring in the holidays! The lodge was decked out in beautiful trees and garland, sounds of crackling wood fires, local beers in the lodge pub, and dinner was first class - presentation,... More
