Fans of Dirty Dancing rejoice! If you’ve always dreamed of staying at the real life Kellerman’s resort! Mountain Lake Lodge, in the Catskill Mountains is the actual set of the 1987 movie, Dirty Dancing, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. The film is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month, which makes it the perfect time to plan a trip!
While Frances “Baby” Houseman might have initially been irritated with her family’s choice to stay, and very bored until she met a certain dance instructor, you can be assured that you won’t feel even a twinge of boredom, what with all the lodge has to offer. Fans of the movie have no need to fret! Mountain Lake Lodge has Dirty Dancing themed nights every weekend, as well as a springwater lake if you’re dying to recreate the famous lifting scene. You can even stay in the main lodge, where Baby resided.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the movie, this resort is definately a fun destination for your next vacation. Hiking trails, and outdoor activities are available on the lodge’s 2,600 acres of land. Events are planned every weekend, and their Adventure Center is full of fun activities to do with family, and friends. The Mountain Lake Lodge is a beautiful place for relaxation, or living out your Dirty Dancing dreams!
