Just north of Lake Estes in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, sits the Stanley Hotel. The luxurious and secluded feel of The Stanley Hotel inspired world-famous fiction writer Stephen King to write his classic 1977 tale of terror, The Shining. It’s also the filming location for the 1997 mini-series version of the Overlook Hotel. Open year-round and just minutes from the best snow in the state, you can indulge in your winter sport of choice on incredible slopes and trails, or visit in warmer weather to hike, bike, and climb. Then as the sun sets on a perfect day, enjoy cocktails at the Whiskey Bar before tucking into a nice steak at Cascades Restaurant. You’ll enjoy live entertainment nightly from a wide range of musicians, magicians, and comedians. An experienced and courteous staff is waiting for you at The Stanley Hotel.
