If you want to step back into the 1920's AND the movie Dirty Dancing, this quaint little place is a must see! We stayed in the beach view rooms, which were like a "motor court" from the 1950/60's, but conveniently connected to the main hotel -- room was small, but adequate for the two of us and bed very comfortable. The hotel is full of period pictures, antiques and such. You can actually stay in bungalows where they filled the movie as Johnny's cabin and Baby's Bungalow (see pics). The whole area is amazing to sight see through with the mixture of old/new, simple/extravagant. Great restaurants on/off the lake. Great boat ride tour of the lake and areas where movie was filmed -- 6pm time is best for cooler breezes and setting sun! One drawback, if you call it that, the hotel restaurant/bar is not open all the time so we did not get to eat there, but we did catch the bar happy hour one evening and the young bartender was very entertaining, sharing stories/information about the area/hotel. Lots of touristy shopping/souvenir type stores just up the road. Another drawback was the public beach opposite the hotel ... once it closes for the evening it fills up with geese in the water and on the beach ... I think they prepare the beach area for guest, however I would still be wary about stepping foot over there with my kids!! Overall, we spent two days in this area and absolutely enjoyed every minute, truly like we stepped back in time.
