We stayed at this hide away hotel for VT football game. We had a great time. We took our son (a VT freshmen) to Harvest for his birthday dinner. It was wonderful. The staff are so accommodating and the food was very good. The atmosphere needs a little "extra' something (like candles on the table) but other than that it... More

Stayed one night but wish I had more time. The lodge is gorgeous. The grounds are as well. The lake is gone but there is so much beauty, it didn't matter. The staff was helpful and kind. We walked all over the property and found everything in good order. No a/c but each room has fans that can be placed... More

First of all I want to say we came for my birthday day because I loved the Dirty Dancing Movie. I was disappointed that the lake was almost completely dried up and all the signs for the Dirty Dancing location were taken down I also could not locate the map that they hand out to people there was one on...

You just need to know what you're getting into. We were made aware of the Lodge via a Travelzoo promotion, which lists the property as a "resort" that "recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation". I shudder to think what the property looked like pre-renovation. Some things to consider before you book - - you're not staying at a resort. You're staying... More

The overall experience of the facility was were exciting. The grounds, facility and views were remembrances of a fairy tail story. Rustic, charming with modern upgrades. Plenty of activities for any family or just for a quiet retreat. We were there to celebrate my granddaughters' birthday. 2 cabins were reserved for the entire family.

What a beautiful area of Virginia. The hotel is old but nicely maintained. New carpeting and bedding in all the rooms. The bathrooms need some updating, but were not an issue. The staff couldn't have been any nicer. The grounds are just beautiful and if you were a lover of Dirty Dancing the movie, you'll be very excited to see... More

Did a day visit with a friend... We were basing our trip out of Roanoke and drove up to Mountain Lake Lodge for the day. We walked the lake trail around what was the perimeter of the lake. The place must have been gorgeous with the lake. The gazebo is falling apart....its on the edge of what was the lake...now... More

As big fans of Dirty Dancing, we opted to stay at "Kellermans" for our 18th wedding anniversary. Let me just say that we expected a little more organization for the 40 or so of us who shelled out several hundred dollars for a weekend experience. I'd say they go all out or not do it at all...a very historical hotel... More

The resort is very relaxing, it excellent views, and the lobby area is inviting. Overall, this is a very comfy place to spend your vacation. We rented the Dirty Dancing lodge, and it was very nice. It had a large living room, three bedrooms, three bathrooms. Everything was clean. I would stay here again. If you are a family with... More
