While the fictional Kellerman Resort where Baby (Jennifer Grey) danced the night away with dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) was set in upstate New York in the 1960s, the beloved 1980s movie was filmed at the picturesque real life Mountain Lake Hotel, as Matador Network previously reported.
Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the stone lodge was built in the 1930s, and has charmingly rustic cabins and a lake for practicing your dance lifts. Dedicated fans can even rent out the Virginia Cottage where Baby and her family (including her father, played by Jerry Orbach) spent the summer.
