We don’t mean to alarm you, but you can stay at the resort where one of the best movies of all time was filmed – Dirty Dancing!

Yep, the fictional Kellerman Resort is actually The Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia, and can be rented for a bargain price of $329 a night! Why wouldn’t you want to stay at the place where Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman and Johnny Grey fell in love and danced the night away?!

Hidden away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the stone lodge was built in the 1930’s and has various hotspots around it’s premises where you can practice your dance lifts, natch.

Die-hard fans can even rent out the Virginia Cottage where Baby and her family spent the summer of 1963!

And if you want to take it one step further and go for the full Dirty Dancing experience, book the Dirty Dancing package, which includes dance lessons, a tour of the locations used in the film, and a dance party to the soundtrack hits including the iconic (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life. Um, where do we sign up?!

“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,” the hotel’s general manager Heidi Stone says.

“It tends to be a popular ‘girls’ getaway’ weekend, but we do see some husbands and boyfriends from time to time.”

BRB, just booking a room…
