It is situated at the south side of Mount Hood in Oregon, at an elevation of 1817 m (5960 ft).

Only some exterior shots were used in the movie The Shining, as most of the filming was done in the Elstree Studios in the U.K.

  1. I am embarrassed to tell you that this is within 2 hours’ driving time from my home, and I completely missed it.

  2. I Googled ‘Overlook Hotel’ for this one, but didn’t find proof easily enough. Should have invested some more time…
