Interesting stop - whiskey bar! The oldest part of the hotel is the light bar top.

Fun and creepy. Definitely go have a drink in the bar. Their whiskey list is a full book. They recently planted a new hedge maze. It should look awesome in years to come.

This is a beautiful place. I had no clue this was where "Dumb & Dumber" was filmed. The decor of the place is very elegant. They have a gift shop and offer tours.

Room 217.

The Shining Hotel - TV Miniseries

Stay in room 217! It is the room in which Stephen King stayed, resulting in the conception of "The Shining." Best to book early and request the room. I didn't get to stay in 217, but the people staying in it invited us in for a look.
