With fluttering hearts, wide eyes and sheepish smiles, most of us have watched Dirty Dancing at some point in our lives (and you really should if you haven’t already). We swooned when Patrick Swayze got close and personal with Baby (aka Jennifer Grey), and did our best to imagine that we were the ones being effortlessly lifted into the air.
Would you believe us if we told you your wildest dreams were about to come true? That’s right. Grab your sexiest chiffon dancing skirts or pants, because you can now book activity packages based on the film at the original resort where Dirty Dancing was filmed!
Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia is offering you the chance to book a room in the very same lodges that Baby and her family stayed at, walk the same trails that Baby walked and dance your heart away with dance lessons and dance parties.
“It is amazing how many thousands of ‘Dirty Dancing‘ fans we meet every summer,” said the general manager at the resort, Heidi Stone. “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.”
If you’re willing to splurge a bit, you can book the entire weekend package (which includes meals and a two night stay) starting at $330 USD a person (around $430 CAD). Book it here.
