What a wonderful treat Mountain Lake Lodge is! They underwent a recent renovation of the rooms and restaurant, and the quality really shows. We stayed in a suite in the main lodge (room 200) and were quite surprised at how big it was. The bedroom and living room were each at least 12' x 20'. Tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and compete with ceiling fans, gas fireplace, and windows that bring in the mountain air. Our meals at Harvest (the restaurant) were first-rate, and fairly priced. I hear the chef came fom the Hay-Adams hotel in DC. The wine and beer prices were not jacked way up, like some resorts do.
Although the lake is low, it's been fixed and hopefully will fill soon. Even so, there is plenty to do and see. We hiked on trails around the property, and might get the courage to do the ropes course next time!
I heartily recommend this place. The effort the owners are making to restore this place really shows in the results.
