Oh, yes, Timberline Lodge is a movie star. It's been in many movies, but its most famous role is in the 1980 classic horror movie The Shining, with Jack Nicholson. But the truth is that while Timberline provided the hotel exterior for the movie, most of the movie was filmed on a studio set. Only a few outdoor scenes were shot at the lodge. Fortunately, this lodge has more to offer the visitor than a famous film location! Don't worry about being booked into room 237, which is prominently featured in the movie. It does not actually exist.
