First time trying something like this. Fun,exciting,challenging,and safe. Our guides,Chris and Ryan were very thorough,patient and knowledgeable. We had the whole place to ourselves, which made it even better. No rush! As we were getting ready to leave we had the pleasure to meet Chris -the manager, a very pleasant young lady. Hats off to the staff and Tree Top... More

We have been going to Mt. Lake since 1984 and have always had a wonderful time. When we heard they were under new management and made a lot of changes (meals not included, very few games in the barn, no nightly activities, now charging for everything that used to be included in the room charge) we were hesitant about going....

This was our 6th trip to Mountain Lake since 2008. We were a little concerned that the new management may change things up too much. The lobby, restaurant, bar areas were either upgraded or renovated. Also, the old laundry building is now the outfitter/equipment rental for all the outdoor activities at the lodge, The "Dirty Dancing" signs that showed where... More

Our group spent our annual Girls' Reunion weekend at Mountain Lake this year. We stayed in the Radford cabin. It was more than adequate-- clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The restaurant is reasonably priced with very good food. We found the portions to be generous, almost more than we could eat for dinner. Two of us did the Tree Top... More

We stayed one night in the Lodge and overall we enjoyed the stay. The rooms were nice, recently remodeled but still had a touch of character (like the bathrooms). I'm giving this place a very good review because of the view, the pop culture history (Dirty Dancing) and the room, but there are some issues that need to be addressed.... More

I am happy to report that we have a new Executive Chef, Michael Rork, and he is personally ensuring that our guests are properly being taken care... More

Visited this property for an annual fall car meet. I had read some of the reviews online and was uncertain about how I would feel about the property. Our room was not in the main lodge but in a small grouping of about 12 rooms called the Chestnut Lodge ( I think)...we were about a 1 minute walk from the... More

We selected Mountain Lake Lodge after seeing in on TravelZoo. We had heard that it had been redone and we decided to rent a cabin with some friends. Total adults 4, kids 7. We rented a cabin. The cabin was great. Very clean and updated, plenty of room for everyone. It was rainy there in July and VERY cool (60s).... More

Dear Vandalia23, Yes, you are correct - the gnats were unusually thick this past year. It was a very wet summer which was great for our filling lake, but not pleasant otherwise. Thank you for your comments about the pool. This situation will be much better next summer as all of our lake activities will be returning! Thank you again... More

We went last week before school started, and we all had an amazing time. We knew about the lake drying up before we got there, so were weren't expecting much in that respect. Both of my kids were able to participate in activities with and without us...(which was a nice break). The restaurant was fine...but not enough food. Several times... More

I just returned from staying at this hotel, we went with our car club for our annual fall meet. The location is scenic and has some very picturesque hotel buildings. You must read the history of the hotel on wiki to get an understanding of what this property has gone through recently. My only real complaint is that the parking... More
