If you liked the movie 'Dirty Dancing', this lodge is pretty cool, but......Lake has dried up, small rooms, no TV, no a/c. Food was ok. Great mountain views. Long drive from Blacksburg. In my opinion, not worth the price.

Kevin S, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am disappointed that your stay was not all that you anticipated. Mountain Lake Lodge has over 26 different types of accommodations - everything from a 4 Bed/BA furnished home, rustic historic cabins, to cozy lodge rooms. We do tend to be 10-15 degrees cooler here on... More

Difficult drive 6 miles up a poorly maintained mountain road. There is another way in and out, but it is not paved and quite scary. Some rooms are renovated but bathrooms are not. Old plumbing is old plumbing. BTW..there are no toiletries...bring your own soap, shampoo etc. (We stayed in a suite.) There are some pump dispensers in the shower,... More

Anne, Thank you for your feedback. I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. I have noted all of your comments for our management team. The resort officially opens on May 1 and it is pre-season until Memorial Day weekend. It does take our staff a bit to recover from the very harsh winter here on the mountain. The... More

I brought them a drawing of second frame hotel and we hung in tavern on loan. What a night before? Driving strange car, hard rain and then fog so thick I keep losing the road, and lot of pain on road is now missing in center and on sides. Road pavement needs some repairs.

We've had a long hard winter and wanted to get away from it all. We enjoyed a long weekend on the mountain in a cozy cabin with fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Staff at the pub were awesome. The Harvest dining room had tasty hot meals! We met several other folks who were enjoying a weekend away! Was a wonderful relaxing... More

We loved our stay. We had to have the best room in the main lodge. The Tavern bar team knows how to make a very nice old fashion. The restaurant for breakfast was OK, eggs well scrambled, nice biscuits, but the gravy was lacking. We would go back but think the off-season is the time to be here when you... More

I have mixed reviews about this property after staying here last weekend. The accommodations we had in the Chestnut Lodge, adjacent to the main lodge, we're average at best. They were in my opinion very dated. The heat in our room couldn't keep up with the cold temperatures outside and unfortunately there was no firewood available for the fireplace in... More

We traveled as a family to stay for a weekend. We enjoyed hiking the property and sledding on a nearby hill. It was a quiet weekend, which was exactly what we were looking for. The room was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed exploring some of the spots on the property where scenes from Dirty Dancing were... More

I have been to Mt Lake resorts more than 10 times in last several years. The place is going downhill since the new management took over. The biggest blow was when they told the huge crowd puller Oktoberfest band to stop performing there. I was a big fan of that band and use to bring lots of friends over. The... More
