The Stanley Hotel

Estes Park, Colorado

Located 6 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park, the Stanley Hotel makes an ideal base for hiking and fishing vacations in summer and skiing and sledding jaunts in winter. Reputedly haunted, historic and meticulously redone, the Neo-Georgian structure is now composed of condos and a boutique-style lodge to give travelers a choice in their type of stay. Movie buffs will enjoy knowing that the Stanley Hotel once hosted Stephen King, inspiring him to write “The Shining.”
