Skiing's Spookiest Destination...The Overlook Hotel from "The Shining"


I grew up with an irrational fear of hotel hallways and identical twins dressed the same because of this movie and if like to celebrate Halloween by commemorating it, just book a room at skiing’s spookiest destination…. Timberline Lodge in Oregon aka The Overlook Hotel from The Shining.

The Timberline Lodge was used for the exterior shots of the fictional Overlook Hotel in the 1980 classic scary movie The Shining and looks much the same as it did when Stanley Kubrick and Jack Nicholson were roaming the grounds. Rooms are pretty reasonable and later on in the season you can ski as well as relive your childhood nightmares. BOOK ROOM HERE

INTERESTING FACT: Timberline management requested that Stanley Kubrick not use 217 for a room number (as specified in the book), fearing that nobody would want to stay in that room ever again. Kubrick changed the script to use the nonexistent room number 237.


Constructed in 1937, Timberline Lodge stands on the south slope of Mt. Hood at an elevation of 6,000 feet. This beautiful 55,000 square foot structure rises out of a pristine alpine landscape and is still being used for its original intent – a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for everyone to enjoy. Legendary and awe-inspiring, it’s a tribute to the rugged spirit of the Pacific Northwest. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year.
