Maybe the interior shots, but the exterior shots in
the movie The Shining was Timberline Lodge on Mnt. Hood in Oregon.
I may live in Boise - but I got web feet from being an Oregonian first.
I'm a +1 with BloddHound. I did a trip through Glacier this
year and plan on going back through on my way back down from Banff next year.
I did not stop at Prince of Whales but Lake McDonald Lodge was awesome.
I have reservation in the lodge for 2 nights next Sept. If you plan on staying in any of the park lodges,
MAKE RESERVATIONS NOW!!! They fill up fast. I had to shuffle my plans
a day to get into the lodge next year.
The Glacier Park Lodge in East Glacier is very impressive architecturally.
I have reservation there of 1 night after Lake McDonald. I have heard that the rooms
in the lodge proper are not that great - I have reservations in the West Wing (I believe)
Newer rooms with shared balconies. East Glacier is not anything to write home about,
I use it as a stop over so I can enjoy a liesurely day ride and hikes through the park.
Dining options are nill in East Glacier as well. The only Mexican food place there is
about the best option. It gets crowded.
PM if I can be of any other help.
