While After visiting Estes Park, Colorado last winter I became enthralled with The Stanley Hotel. While reading a book in the cabin I learned it was the inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King’s The Shining.
We didn’t have time to tour it while we were there but you can and there are several notable items to see including the famous suite 217.
My mind once again has wandered to the ghost stories told by visitors of the Overlook Hotel’s muse with the release of Doctor Sleep on 4K, Blu-ray, Digital, and DVD. (affiliate link)

Did you catch Doctor Sleep in theaters? If you didn’t I recommend bringing it home this film based on the book by the same name,and the sequel to The Shining.
Doctor Sleep introduces us to Dan Torrance. He’s struggling with alcoholism due to traumatizing events that took place at Overlook Hotel while he was a child.
Dan’s hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
I’ve enjoyed most movies based on Stephen King’s books aside from being scarred by Pet Sematary and never wanting to watch any versions of IT. Doctor Sleep falls under the enjoyed category and has actually made me want to read the Doctor Sleep book!
Tell me what you thought if you watched Doctor Sleep or took a tour of The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park!
