United States Virginia Pembroke

Mountain Lake Lodge

Tips from the community

Not only is Mountain Lake Lodge a dreamy, fully-functioning rustic getaway in Pembroke Virginia, but it's also the well-known filming location for the best 80's movie of all time: Dirty Dancing. While the property has seen some updates, most everything is intact: the lodge, the Houseman's cabin, the breakfast table, & the infamous lake from the lift scene.

    If I don't get to sip tea in Sri Lanka's hillside, read books in the Lake District, cozy up with Christmas lights in Zermatt, and watch grizzlies catch fish in Alaska before I die, I'm gonna *riot*. From the totally obtainable (White Sands National Park) to the obscure (Lofoten), here's my big, bad, do-before-I-die bucket list.

    In September 2020, I sold all my stuff, packed up my car, and hit the road with my 12-year-old pup, Fiona. We started in Vermont and are currently in Mississippi. Up next: Tampa, FL
  • ultimate movie-inspired bucket list

    I'm definitely not a film nerd, and can't tell you anything about the magic behind the scenes, but what I can say is: watching these places on screen makes me feel things. From the shoe-box Vienna record shop in 'Before Sunrise' to the sweaty Italian cobblestone streets in 'Call Me By Your Name,' I'd go out of my way to visit the real-life places that inspired all my comfort movie dreams.
