A quick getaway for the weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. And the food is absolutely amazing! Be sure to stop by the tavern and say hello to Mike and get one of his Bloody Marys. This will be at least a two-time visit a year for our family. It's great for a couples getaway or bring the...

We had one of the cabins that was part of the movie "dirty danncing". It was simple but great for a long weekend. This is an old style resort. Good old fashioned family fun. The resort has a very nice dining room. A must do for any couple or family that wants to experience the way we used to vacation.

Mountain Lake Lodge is a beautiful property with many activities from hiking, swimming, playgrounds, firepit, huge chess board and soon beach volleyball. This is a stay for those looking to reconnect with life before computers and social media took over. You will not find TVs in your room. Wifi is available. The Lodge is a step back in time where...

When we first checked in we were given a room in the main lodge. Although it was functional, it was not the kind of room we wanted for our 2 night retreat. Steven understood our request and was totally accommodating by giving us a cabin in the Richmond building (315). The cabin has been recently renovated to include updated bathroom,...

My fiancé and I had a great time visiting the lodge. The views are beautiful and it is a great place to relax and unwind. Don't come here expecting it to be like Six Flags. The service is exceptional and the food is amazing. We are planning on making this an annual trip. 5 stars!

My review is written from the perspective of a one night stay while visiting Blacksburg. I did not appreciate how remote this place was up a long windy mountain road. Unfortunately what I saw when I got there was nothing special compared to what I expected. The view was Ok but nothing spectacular. The accommodations were average if not somewhat...

Tarheeltraveler367, Thank you for your comments. I'm not sure from your note if you were able to see the views specifically from Bald Knob or from the Historic Golf Clubhouse. These are undeniably spectacular views. We are currently still preparing for the summer season and are disappointed that you felt "let down" with your recent stay. We hope that you...

We stayed here at the wife's request for two nights, presumably because of the Dirty Dancing connection. The main building exterior itself is beautiful and provides a grand back drop. Inside mind is quite drab and the standard rooms are greatly dated with no AC or TV. The decor and furniture are old and in need of updating. The bathroom...

Dean A, We appreciate your feedback. We strive to provide every guest with a memorable stay, comfortable accommodations, fun activities for kids, farm to table - simple, fresh cuisine, and a "one of a kind" Dirty Dancing Film tour. The resort is most picturesque in the summer and fall seasons when the birds and flowers are the peaceful backdrop on...

We stayed 2 nights at Chestnut Lodge over the weekend to hike before touring Virginia Tech. The kids enjoyed exploring the property - playing chess, tether ball, pool, etc. The accommodations were outdated but we are used to national park lodging so MLL was nice in comparison. Front desk staff were not as hospitable or accommodating as I would expect....

What a great, fun, relaxing weekend! So exciting to see and hear about "Dirty Dancing" facts. We had a blast! The entire staff was very helpful and willing to answer any questions we had. The cabin we stayed in was great - a fire place (we had it going all weekend), a fun, fun time! Oh, don't forget to talk...

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...
