I visited this resort for a girls weekend at the amazing place where Dirty Dancing was filmed. The hotel and grounds are still very similar to "Kellerman's" and we had a blast! We stayed in one of the cabins, which was great, and also spent a lot of time in the main lodge. We were also there for Brewfest 2016...

If you like epicurean experiences surrounded by nature with an opportunity to recreate in the great outdoors, Mountain Lake Lodge is for you. Awesome bar and dining experience offering trails around the lake and a zipline course. A great scenic retreat.

We loved our time there. We stayed in a cabin, the "West Virginia" cabin, for 3 nights. I went to college at Tech in the early 90s, and had been to Mountain Lake back in the day but not since! We had a wonderful time. All resorts are different and all resort experiences are different. We appreciate a variety of...

We chose Mountain Lake Lodge for two reasons- kid and pet friendly. We had a six hour drive and arrived early but our rooms were not ready. They were still not ready at the check-in time but the front desk staff was very helpful and managed to reach the person who clears the rooms by walkie talkie. We stayed in...

We checked in late Friday night for a 3 day weekend. The hotel was rustic and very clean. This was the location that the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed with Patrick Swayze. They have maps which show the histroy of the location along with where the movie scenes were filmed. No TV's in the rooms, no ac in the rooms...

We spent this past fourth of July weekend at one of the Mountain Lake Lodge's Blueberry Ridge condos, nestled about a five minute walk from the main lodge. The condo was spacious and comfortable (and surprisingly un-buggy for it's location; surrounded on three sides by dense forest). The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had enough of the basics...

This is the best place we've been for a relaxing family vacation. The kids were very happy with the pool, game room, hiking, and activities and we parents loved the same plus excellent food at a good price. We were worried about no TVs or AC but neither of these were an issue, we ended up spending a lot of...

Truly, it dried up years ago. One of two natural lakes in Va. It might just be me, but if you book a stay at the Mountain Lake Lodge, at Mountain lake, you might want to be at a lake. Nothing in any of the hotel sites mention that the lake is no longer there.

Dear mrroonie, Thank you for your recent comments. You mention that there is no information about the lake on any website; however, I would like to direct you to the front page of our website. There are two videos on the front page: The mission of Mountain Lake Lodge and The Mystery of the Lake. Enjoy! Currently the Lake is...

Having read many of the reviews posted here with all of the varying opinions, we arrived (after missing the turn onto Rt. 700 and calling the nice staff at the hotel for help getting back to where we needed to be).

We went into the lodge, but didn't stay there. My brother lives not far from there. It has history from the 1800's !!! Dirty Dancing was mostly filmed there. We took a very long long hike thru their connecting trails, we walked for miles & miles WONDERFUL !!!!! Thank You Mountain Lake for preserving the nature trails & the history....
