Discover the ultimate outdoor retreat in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountain Range and the center of a 2,600 acre nature preserve. In 2012 Mountain Lake completed renovation of many of our guestrooms and cabins, added new recreational activities including an Aerial & Zip Line Adventure Course, Treetop Adventures, and new special events throughout the year! Mountain Lake Lodge is the ideal place for families, friends, couples and groups to recreate and relax amidst nature’s bounty. Arrive to an unhurried pace in a place faithful to the outdoors, where friendly service prevails. Consider our mountain wilderness the gateway to the ultimate experience in Southwest Virginia featuring exciting cultural events, celebrating local musicians, micro brews and our fame as the setting for the movie Dirty Dancing. We look forward to making your stay with us one-of-a-kind. Make your reservation today at Mountain Lake Lodge.
