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 and a lot of winding roads. Weather was 55 degrees in summertime and stayed in the newer cottages- Egleston. Rooms are spacious and have bathrooms in each room.Good size kitchen but needing more utensils. We forgot to pass by the grocery store before going up the mountain. So we had to drive back down again. Took us about 25 mins to get to Food Lion. There were different activities everyday e.g. yoga, zumba, etc. Free use of spa, exercise room, pool table, pingpong table, air hockey, etc. Enjoyed listening to the juke box in Mary's barn after visiting the cottage where the shut the movie "Dirty Dancing". The gift shop is needing more interesting items to sell. Played tennis, swam and did a lot of hiking.Don't forget to bring your bug spray because there were a lot of bugs. Enjoyed the view and nature. Best part : Treetop Adventure. $38.00++ for the adult course. They have different challenges and zip lines. Matt was able to demo us how to do the course and it was fun! The ones that looked like easy courses turned out to be the hard ones :). My 10 yr old daughter was able to complete the course too. This attraction just opened in June so there was no line when we were there. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant because we cooked our own the whole time we were there.Nice staff. We'll come back :)
