My wife and I spent two nights at the Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Va. What a beautiful property on 250,000 acres. It was so interesting to learn the history of the property; it was beautifully decorated and the staff there very friendly and welcoming. No TV in the rooms and no A/C.....didn't even miss them. Cool mountain nights are... More

We were married there on Aug. 12, 2000. It was great. We were married in the gazebo and had the reception in the ballroom downstairs. The food was great and the staff was friendly and helpful when I could not find dress socks the day of the wedding. My bride and our 7 and 8 yr old daughters are on... More

We stayed in the main lodge (beautiful inside and out) for 3 nights, our room lacked AC but the fan kept us very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit poky and there were no pictures on the walls in the room but generally it was very nicely decorated. We were disappointed on arrival to find that; -the conservancy centre is...

This is a beautiful place, the buildings and the setting. We did have a problem with our room. We reserved a king bed and when they got there the room was already occupied. Then they gave us another room and it had 2 queen beds. We returned and eventually got a room in another building with a king bed. This... More
