Fodor's Review

The 1987 movie "Dirty Dancing" was filmed here, and the resort (Kellerman's in the movie) hosts special themed weekends with dancing, a movie location tour, and other special events. Centered around the highest natural lake east of the Mississippi, accommodations range from spartan cottages to plush suites in a majestic sandstone hotel from 1930 (the resort itself predates the Civil War). You can also rent two, three, and four-bedroom cottages if you need more space for an extended stay. Atop 4,000-foot Salt Pond Mountain, outdoor activities abound: you can hike, mountain bike, ride horses, swim, and boat within the 2,500-acre Mountain Lake Wilderness, which surrounds the hotel. The adjacent Jefferson National Forest offers even more recreation, including a segment of the Appalachian Trail.
