There is a very interesting video on the website that describes the scientific research that has been conducted over the past 25 years on "the lake". The experts have a great way of explaining the mystery of Mountain Lake!

The Roanoke-Blacksburg airport is much closer - only an hour away. You’ll need to rent a car for the easy drive to Mountain Lake.
Room Tips
"If you are looking for peace and solitude, rent a cabin instead of staying at the main lodge."
Read review
"Request a room away from the front door of the lodge, which slams every time it's closed."

"Avoid the cabins unless you bring your own food -- it's a bit of a hike to the main facilities"

"Get a room on the lake side."
