What Do Dirty Dancing and Bigfoot Have in Common?

About 6 month(s) ago by Mountain Lake Lodge

Both are a Big Deal at Mountain Lake Lodge!


This year has been an exciting one at Mountain Lake Lodge, we've been able to expand and redesign our pool area to better help our guests relax and we're not done with the big news! We are very happy to announce that we have some new activities at The Lodge this summer including 3D Archery featuring Bigfoot! We promise you won't be disappointed by our larger-than-life Bigfoot!  Our Recreation Staff has been working harder than ever to make sure "Every day is Saturday" and we'd like to officially introduce them to you, now you may recognize them if you've visited before, but we're proud to show off our team.


Jeremiah McKendree (Director of Recreation & Retail)

                Jeremiah is a passionate outdoor enthusiast who can be found exploring the great outdoors with his kids and wife when not at work helping our guests. He is excited to have joined the Mountain Lake Lodge team and brings experience from companies like: Walt Disney World, The Greenbrier Resort, ACE Adventure Center, and The Resort at Glade Springs. Jeremiah loves the outdoors and can't wait to help our guests enjoy the beautiful landscape that is Mountain Lake Lodge. If you're looking for adventure while you're here, he highly recommends our Treetop Adventure Course, find out more about it below!

Austin Doughty (Recreation Manager)

                Austin loves his job here at Mountain Lake Lodge because he gets to make every day feel like Saturday for our guests. Austin graduated from Concord University in West Virginia with a degree in Recreation and Tourism Management, and uses that background to help further enhance your experience. In his off time, Austin can be found at any Virginia Tech sporting event - especially basketball, or fishing, and enjoying the outdoors with his fiancé. While you're here, Austin's can't miss activity is the new 3D Archery Course, find out more below!

Joe Powell (Clays Manager)

                Joe has been a part of the Mountain Lake Lodge family for over 30 years and he's excited to officially be the Clays / 5 Stand Manager. Joe currently lives in Eggleston with his wife, and when he's not helping our guests you can find him hunting or fishing. Joe has taught his kids, grandkid, and his wife how to shoot and loves to teach others how to as well, and he's is a NCCA certified instructor so everyone is in safe hands with Joe! He can't wait to meet and help all of our guests enjoy our 5 Stand Shooting Range.
