The Shining...Where does the story take place?

What state, city, etc...does the Shining take place in? I know it was filmed in Colorado, but do they ever mention where the film actually takes place?

I've been curious, thanks for any replies. I love this movie.

The link says it all. I've been to the Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood and it is awesome. Great snowboarding, and a beautiful lodge/hotel. I'd love to stay there overnight and hike to the top of the mountain in the summer. I ate at the restaurant and it was exceptional. They were serving red rum casserole.

Here's another great website for the lodge:

www.timberlinelodge.com


This is what it looked like when I was there.

Thanks Rival. So does it take place in Oregon, or was it just filmed there?

I believe Stephen King's version actually was filmed at Estes Park, CO. in the actual hotel that the first version was supposed to be refering to. Stanley Hotel.

Yeah, keep in mind only the exteriors were shot at Timberline, not the interiors. I'm not sure what you mean by 'Where it takes place in' because what nobody has said is it actually is supposed to take place at the Overlook Hotel in CO.

The miniseries was shot at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.

I know they did some interiors for the mini-series at the Stanley, too.

Unfortunately, I didn't see a "mini-Stanley" on the grounds. Or the hedge animals.

But the exterior was not the Stanley Hotel.

I think that's correct. If I recall, they mention the "road to Sidwinder" being closed by snow in the winters.

Was the beginning/driving sequence of the Kubrick version filmed on/near St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park? Looks awful familiar...

Cheers.

Mount Washington Hotel in New Hampshire always reminds me of The Shining.

...erm...

(...all the interiors were shot on studio-built sets, with tons and tons of salt-as-snow visible where applicable...)

If you guys like the film, I'd suggest reading the book, one of Kings best.
