Timberline Lodge & "The Shining"
For most people, the iconic hotel and resort - Timberline Lodge - bring to mind the Stephen King Halloween cult-classic novel, "The Shining" (adapted by Stanley Kubrick) and the Overlook Hotel. The historical significance of the Timberline Lodge goes much deeper than the many movies and TV shows set on their grounds.
The snowy environment south of Mt. Hood and east of Portland, Oregon is ideal for skiing and snow sports year-round. Over two million visitors flock to the Timberline Lodge annually. Now a National Historic Landmark, the Timberline Lodge was originally dedicated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937.Still used to this day to represent the perfect ski lodge on film, the Timberline Lodge has been through the Great Depression, a year of closure due to WWII, the filming of episodes of Hogan's Heroes, and the untimely death of Director Boris Sagal - who walked into rotating helicopter blades during filming the movie World War III (1982).In reality, the Timberline Lodge is known for stellar craftmanship and cravings that represented handmade architecture at the turn of the 20th century.
