Visitors can even stay in the cabin where Baby’s family stayed during their fictional summer of 1963 vacation.
“Mountain Lake Lodge is Kellerman’s,” Heidi Stone, the hotel’s general manager, said. “It is amazing how many thousands of ‘Dirty Dancing’ fans we meet every summer. We have guests from all over the world that come to Mountain Lake Lodge just for the ‘Dirty Dancing’ Weekends. It tends to be a popular ‘girls’ getaway’ weekend, but we do see some husbands and boyfriends from time to time.”
