Filming of Dirty Dancing began at the Mountain Lake Lodge in September 1986 and the movie initially was going to be called "Dancing." In October when Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey were practicing the lift scene and went into the water it was so cold they had to take 5-10 minute breaks. In addition to Freeze Your Glass Off the lodge continues to host year-round events related to the movie.

The Mountain Lake Lodge continues with Dirty Dancing themed events

You can stay at Kellerman's Mountain House, enjoy a Kellerman's paint, and sip and book Dirty Dancing-themed weekends. There are also outdoor activities you can take part in near the lodge which sits in the middle of 2500 acres of land. The Freeze Your Glass Off Fridays buffet theme is "From the Grill".
