If your favourite childhood memories don't include knowing what the saying " nobody puts baby in the corner" means and wishing that you could bring a watermelon with you as your plus one to parties... who even were you?!

As it turns out, there is a way to relieve or LIVE out your favourite Dirty Dancing memories and fantasies!

Now you can live out all your holiday fantasies for real, at the very same iconic hotel that was used in the film. "The Kellerman Resort" was the stuff that every young girl's holiday fantasies were made of, with its gorgeous rustic exterior, lakeside location and cosy cabins, it made our yearly trip to the snowy mountains in the family station wagon a little uninspiring in comparison! 

However, the producers pulled a sneaky one on us, as the hotel isn't based in New York at all... It's actual location is in Pembroke, Virgina and is really called the Mountain Lake Hotel. The hotel still loves to pay tribute to it's role in the film though, and it hosts three Dirty Dancingthemed weekends per year, which includes a sock hop, a screening of the movie, a watermelon toss, group dance lessons, and a scavenger hunt. You can even rent out the cabin Baby and her family spent the summer in!

When can we go?! BRB just counting our frequent flyer miles...
