“Dirty Dancing Weekend--November 2007”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

I had the "Time of my Life" at Mountain Lake Lodge. If you love the movie Dirty Dancing and LOVE the late Patrick Swayze like I did..... you will LOVE this Lodge. Over 1/2 of the movie was filmed here and the actors/actresses stayed in the Lodge while filming in 1986/1987. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary as well as the Lodge was celebrating the 20th year of the movie and was having a Dirty Dancing weekend special. Although we went in November, it was very nostalgic and brought me right back to when I first watched the movie. Included was full breakfasts, lunches, and dinners along with nightly dances and Ballroom dance lessons... needless to say I was in heaven the entire 3 days and had the "Time of my Life"

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the Patrick Swayze room...it's in the main Lodge (if you're a Fan like me). i...

Booked into Blueberry Cottages for the weekend. Weather took a turn for the worse. Mountain Lake Staff phoned me to express their concern. Moved us into a cottage they were sure would be warm and safe for us. Phoned us later in the evening to make sure we were safe and comfortable. Awesome service.
Mountain Lake Outfitters supplied us with snowshoes and a wonderful guide named Jess. She took us up in the mountains in the snow and cold and taught us to snowshoe. Wonderful experience.
Couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you Mountain Lake!

This property is still as beautiful as it was in the moving Dirty Dancing. Everything about this resort was beautiful, except the lake is not fully restored yet.
The rooms are gorgeous, beautifully decorated and maintained.
We came with our children and really enjoyed having drinks and family time on the deck (where it was screened in). We ended up watching the sunset from this deck where you could hear the crickets chirping.
The staff was terrific. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast.
You can hike, rent bicycles, or just sit by the gazebo and relax.
This is the place you want to go when you want to get away from it all.

Room Tip: You can either have a room in the lodge or book a cabin on the property. Either would be awesome.

This was our second visit to Mountain Lake Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay as part of the New Year's Eve Package. The room was great and the dining experience superb. The lodge combines a good mix of old lodge feel with updated amenities. The package price was very reasonable. We are looking forward to doing it again next year.

Spent New Year's Eve at the hotel. Very nice dance that night. But the food was poorly prepared, reheated, not grilled a total loss. I ate four meals there, none were acceptable. Our waitress complained about being sick (cough, cough). The fire alarm at 5 AM was a nice touch, a get out of bed early call. Eventually a guest walked down the hall with the all clear news. The place need serious management.

Room Tip: Beautiful location, come prepared to hike outdoors. Bring your own food.

We live a short drive from the lodge and chose to travel up for a little mountain snow, dinner, and warm cider on 12/14/13. What a way to ring in the holidays! The lodge was decked out in beautiful trees and garland, sounds of crackling wood fires, local beers in the lodge pub, and dinner was first class - presentation, taste, and service! The prices are in the $20-30 range and coffee is locally roasted in Floyd County, VA. Well worth the visit!

Room Tip: Did not stay in room.

My family first found this place a few months ago during an Appalachian festival that was held here. We loved the way the lodge looked inside and out.It is an all stone building that was built in the 1930's. it used to be the spot where the "to do" people would spend parts or all of their summers at. The architecture style is similar to Virginia Tech ( since the stone mason was working there before he won the bid to build the hotel). This same gentleman(he was an immigrant from Spain)would later go on to help with the stone work on the Blue Ridge Parkway). I found out that the property has just undergone a multi- million dollar renovation earlier this year. Also a new management company had taken over the operation of it, and planned to be open all year round. The first time in over 70 years. Enough about that, how about our stay. We stayed in a 3 br 3 bath house named Fincastle in the Blueberry ridge area. The house was AWESOME!! huge, completely furnished unit. It included an equipped kitchen, laundry, it even had wood for the fireplace. It actually can hold three different families or groups. You can even have each of the bedroom doors keyed differently, for you own private room and bathroom. Leaving the kitchen/living area as the" common area" We ate some meals at the house, but we had to try the Stony Creek Tavern and the Harvest restaurant. The Tavern serves upscale bar food(quality food ,but not too expensive). I had a Bison burger, that was delicious!! It was so good the the second half of the burger, I took off the condiments so I could get the true flavor of the meat. I highly recommend it. Next we had dinner in the Harvest room, and were not disappointed. We had a party of four and everyone got something different. Everyone LOVED their meal !! the staff was unbelievably nice, and considerate. The last day we were there, the front desk even called our room to warn us about an upcoming ice storm and the conditions of the roads. Who does that? I have traveled A LOT, and have never had a hotel care about my families safety like that. I can't say enough about this place. It has all kids of recreation choices along with good old relaxation spot. Sit in the lodges comfortable sitting areas, having an adult beverage or a nice cool or warm drink( depending on the season). The thing that I found so unique about this location is that a family or group can come here, and basically have two vacation/getaways in one. You can have all the outdoor fun you can handle, or just relax an unwind all at the same place!!
