In honor of the anniversary and to celebrate the show’s revival of Dirty Dancing, Mountain Lake Lodge has put together a few special opportunities to recreate the iconic movie for yourself when you visit the resort, including the Kellerman’s Film Package, and Dirty Dancing weekends!
If you’ve caught the Dirty Dancing fever again, it might be time to plan a trip to Southwest Virginia. While Baby and Johnny’s original story was set at the fictional Kellerman Resort in the Catskills of New York State, the film was shot largely at the idyllic Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia.
You can still visit this instantly recognizable locale, and have yourself an equally memorable summer vacation (but perhaps less dramatic). The resort offers an array of outdoor activities as seen on-screen, and has special themed weekends that feature film tours, dance instruction, and celebrations of all things Dirty Dancing.
The team behind The Real Dirty Dancing discuss filming the series in Virginia, the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the magic of filming where Dirty Dancing originally shot 35 years ago.
