You may not be able to complete the iconic Dirty Dancing lift (let's face it, who can?), but now you can step into Johnny Castle and Baby's dancing shoes for a weekend by staying in the real-life Dirty Dancing hotel, Kellerman's Mountain House located in Pembroke, Virginia.
And if you needed more motivation to make the trip, Dirty Dancing is about to celebrate its 30th birthday — so it really could not be a more perfect time to shake your maracas.
A weekend package at the Dirty Dancing hotel gets you: breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Harvest throughout your stay, a Dirty Dancing movie walking tour, Dirty Dancing themed scavenger hunt, group dance lessons, a dance party in Mary's Barn, and a full weekend itinerary planned out for all guests on package.
People are absolutely loving the experience. Gaetano Averella, who stayed at the Mountain Lake Lodge in January said, "I was more than thrilled to find out Mountain Lake Lodge welcomed day visitors and was the filming location of Dirty Dancing! My girlfriend and I had just watched the movie the night before, and we're very excited to see where many pivotal scenes were filmed."
"One positive thing about there being no water is that I was able to go to the exact spot that Johnny lifted Baby in the water!" he continued. "I have some really cool now-and-then photos I'd love to share!" Looking at the photo, we'd have to agree their trip was worth it.
