Didn't See Any Ghosts

We really enjoyed our visit here. We did a self guided tour. Had drinks at the fabulous historical bar. Dinner was outside on the terrace. There was a lovely gas fire built into each table. Service was great and the food was excellent. We had salads, steak and chicken entrees. We celebrated our 12th anniversary that night. Well worth the visit. Very relaxing evening. No sightings of Jack Nicholson though. Lol

Fun day trip from Boulder

We decided to take a drive on a beautiful fall day. The building sits perched on the hill looking down. It is quite a large property. We ate lunch and walked around. It has a lovely restaurant and gift shop. The place is steeped in history and is a fun thing to do.


Great place for a quick look around or to stay
Check out the cool bar and the gift shop was nice
Parking is well organized. Famous for the Shining movie. Also Dumb and Dumber
