Top 10 Virginia Wedding Resorts: Mountain Lake Resort
It’s on a mountain. There’s also a lake. But at Mountain Lake Resort, there’s a whole lot more to your SW Virginia wedding. More than 2,600 acres, in fact, where you’ll find fun in the woods, fun at the resort-style pool and game facilities and comfort in the grand, historic hotel.
The 40-room Stone Hotel first opened in 1936, and its sandstone construction still represents a bygone era of leisure. Its refurbished Virginia Country style still blends with the original aura of the grand hotel, and inside are ten types of rooms for a variety of Virginia getaways. But if you were expecting stuffy, old-fashioned surroundings, consider that all around the hotel are modern facilities including a hot tub, tennis and volleyball courts, croquet and badminton lawns, and even facilities for archery and nine-hole disc golf. These 2,600 Pembroke, VA acres are also known for world-class guided mountain biking, with more than 20 miles of trails!
Accommodations don’t stop at the historic hotel, either. You’ll also find a 16-unit lodge, along with an array of private one- to four-bedroom cottages and duplex units for summer or winter.
