My wife and I just returned from our second trip to Mountain Lake. On this years vacation we went to Lake Lure, NC for the first three days and Mtn Lake for the last four. Though Lake Lure is a beautiful area, it does not compare to the serenity of this place. Last year we stayed in the Carolina cabin, this year it was the Maybrook which is next door and has a beautiful view of the entire property off the back deck. Our stay was highlighted by a guided tour from the manager "Buzz" Scanlan. He was at the the hotel during the filming of "Dirty Dancing" in 1986. Mr Scanlan spent almost two hours with our small group talking about the history of the hotel, the lake, and the filming of the movie.
The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet each morning was excellent as were the dinner selections off the weekday menu. If you like hiking and just enjoying the tranquility of the outdoors this is the place to be. Rates are very reasonable and include breakfast and dinner. Nightly showings of family movies, karaoke on Friday, and a magic show on Saturday.
In my opinion, the Mountain Lake Hotel and Sierra Nevada Mountains are the best places on earth to be to rid yourself of the pressures of everyday life.
