The folks at Mountain Lake have made some great improvements to the property over the past year. The guest rooms in the hotel have been updated, as well as the common areas. The reception lobby, Stony Creek Tavern (bar/lounge), and dining room have been beautifully redesigned. Chef Michael provides wonderful fare in the dining room, and the hotel staff are all friendly and accommodating. The overall property has received a face lift. For example, the activities building has been moved to a more expansive space, and the original activities building has been made into a small museum honoring the property's connection to the "Dirty Dancing" legacy. The gift shop and fitness center have also received necessary updates that add greatly to the hotel's value. The mountain location of the hotel is beautiful and it is not hard to relax in such a setting. The property could still use some improvements (e.g., guest rooms may have older furniture, but the bedding has been updated...), but there is a healthy balance between the charm and history of the hotel, and modern conveniences. Flat screen TVs in the lounge, and a back corner sitting room, let guests get their "fix" if they need it, but there are so many activities on property, and local attractions to keep you busy, it should be difficult to justify sitting in front of a TV. A great place to spend a week or a weekend. And definitely go for the Sunday brunch!
