We stayed in the lodge section for one night. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of and having fun. The rooms were quaint and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurant had excellent food. Tavern was very laid back and we felt very much...

This is a fun place to stay. Located at the top of a windy road, Mountain Lake Lodge has been a fixture here for a long time. Sadly, the lake has mysteriously drained, but the property retains most of its charm. We stayed in the main lodge- rooms are small and quaint. Unfortunately the bed was lumpy, but I can...

Thank you, Mari, for staying with us and for your feedback. Yes, you are correct the gazebo and boat dock need a refresh. Both will be restored this May - just in time for our summer weddings and our themed Dirty Dancing Weekends. Thank you again for feedback. We look forward to seeing you again! Warm regards, Heidi Stone General...

Went for Friday evening seafood buffet. The service was wonderful and the dining room is very warm and inviting.I gave it four stars only because the crab legs didn't have much of a taste. The rest of the food was wonderful. All the GF choices were clearly marked. Have eaten there before and the food is always good. Beautiful place...

The entire staff has to be the best and most helpful staff in any hotel or resort I've visited around the world from Germany to Guam. Mike the bartender is very entertaining and hospitable, makes great drinks too. The food is soooo good. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and the homemade grilled pimento cheese sandwich and tomato soup was so...

This was the resort where Dirty Dancing was filmed. This is a beautiful resort with some amazing views, but the highlight was a spontaneous viewing of the film in the bar (arranged by Mike the bartender) with a bunch of other fanatics followed by a midnight bonfire. Mike the bartender was amazing, with tons of trivia and inside info. He...

This is an older lodge with rustic cabins. Normally there is a lake, but the lake was very receded. A staff member told us that this happens periodically and then it fills back up. I don't really understand the science of it. We were very surprised to find out that this is where dirty dancing was filmed. One of my...

My husband and I were married here this past October and it was lovely. It was inexpensive but not cheap. We had the most wonderful time. We were married on the stone veranda downstairs at the main lodge. The food was amazing and Mary's Barn is a beautiful reception location. We decorated with pumpkins, mums, candles and fairy lights. It...

We come here once a year and just love it. Our cell phones do not work and the whole Hotel is just very relaxing and helps you to concentrate on family. The breakfast buffet we did not really care for. Could be way better for a hotel at this price point. They used to have a TV room which they...

First time to stay at Mountain Lake- great food lounge and extra friendly service. Celebrated 60 th anniversary in a peaceful and secluded mountain retreat- plan another visit in the spring. Stayed in the lodge but may consider a cabin with the family next time. Highly recommend for a family get a way.

Was looking for a get-a-way that wasn't too far from home. Happened upon Mountain Lake Lodge and so very glad we did!! Beautiful lodge and cabins, hiking trails, surroundings just magnificent! Very interesting geological mystery about the lake that comes and goes with the decades. It was also great to walk the self-guided tour of the Dirty Dancing locations. The...
