Scariest Hotel in the Rockies

Estes Park, CO, United States
1 Kudo
The Stanley Hotel, nestled high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, was the inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining. While I personally did not experience any otherworldly phenomena, many guests have going back to 1911. It was a beautiful hotel with outstanding grounds, but the eerie quiet at night definitely made me understand how it could have spooked even Stephen King!
