We were so impressed with the Public Relation and maintenance skills we received at Mountain Lake Lodge. Within an hour of reporting a hole in the wall, loud exhaust fan and torn bathtub mat, an employee, Austin Richmond fixed the hole, repaired the tub and corrected the loud noise from the fan while making us feel welcome. He even suggested... More

Our family of five stayed in the Dorland for 3 nights. The room was comfortable and clean, but it's always tough to travel with 5 people. The staff was pleasant and friendly, the cleaning ladies were sweet, and the Mountain Outfitters staff members were knowledgeable and helpful. The kids loved the game room, the geocaching, and the Treetop Adventures Some... More

I arranged a 4-night long weekend as a reunion with four of my former students and their families (four husbands, 2 toddlers, and 3 infants). Everyone had a great time. The families stayed in four adjoining rooms, which worked well, and I was in the Lake Cottage which gave us all room to get together. We went on some hikes... More

Every year our family and friends get together at least once a year. This time we decided to go to Mountain Lake Lodge. This seems to be geographically in the middle of SC,KY and Alexandria, VA. We stayed in this resort from Monday to Thursday. Checking in was a breeze. We were not expecting the elevation to be that high... More

Me and my girls took advantage of the Groupon deal offer and stayed three nights. The afternoon we arrived we had time to do the TreeTop Adventures and we had a blast! Afterwards we dined on their screened in covered porch that was so relaxing with a rustic feeling. Our guide was the best. Actually from the front desk, maid... More

My husband, his parents, and I went last weekend to MLL's Dirty Dancing weekend. We had a fantastic time. I'm going to break down my review into sections to counteract the negative review left last month. We ended up in the Pearisburg cabin, and it was wonderful. All of the exteriors to the buildings/cabins have purposefully been left rustic, but... More

Booked a treetop adventure package for a Thursday night on the tail end of a trip to Smith Mountain Lake to entertain our two young boys. We enjoyed our stay/experience here and would return and will recommend the property/experience to others. One interesting point of differentiation is that I left virtually every interaction with a staff member feeling appreciated. Would... More

Entire family had a great time! Lots to do during day, we all esp enjoyed the Treetop Adventures. Fun evening activities too, from games in the barn to campfires. Great place! Room was clean and comfortable? Tavern was a nice place to have a drink and play board games.
