Come explore the secrets of the mysterious Stanley Hotel with author, historian, and ghost-hunter Rebecca F. Pittman. With her as your guide, you will traverse the hotel and grounds from the fourth floor rooms down to the underground tunnel that was part of the original foundation of the main building. You will explore the grounds and outbuildings from the Concert Hall to the Carriage House, and everything in between. On your ghostly journey, you will discover...

  • The spirit of F.O. Stanley, the man who envisioned and built the hotel, who today wanders the lobby and stops in for an occasional game of billiards.
  • His wife Flora, who has been known to come back to visit her favorite piano in the music room of the hotel.
  • The legendary MacGregor Room, where visitors through the years have experienced many haunted occurrences.
  • And of course, Room 217, the extravagant, haunted room that inspired the Master of Horror Stephen King to pen his best-selling novel, The Shining.

The Stanley Hotel is truly a wondrous place, and in the pages of this book you are in for an incredible journey through the ages with its history, and of course, its mystifying hauntings.

FIVE-STAR reviews from

"A rare insightful look at a national treasure! This book has a wonderful flow, combining historical background with modern legend to provide an 'I can't put it down' experience. This leaves me wanting more." (5 stars)

Having been a huge fan of Stephen King's book and movie, The Shining, I was so excited to buy this book to learn more about the history of the hotel and its haunted hallways. What a treasure trove of information awaited me! It became quite apparent that Ms. Pittman did extensive research. She takes the reader back in time - besides feeling like you are on the ghost tour with her. I couldn't put it down! There will always be skeptics regarding the paranormal, but this book should quell many of them. It is the perfect book to curl up with on a rainy night... just be sure to leave the lights on after! (5 stars)

"I expected ghost stories and got them, plus so much more! Ms. Pittman's research and obvious love for the subject has resulted in a wonderful read. The Stanley Hotel must be very proud of her in depth interest and efforts. Would highly recommend it to anyone who loves the Rocky Mountains, Estes, the Stanley, history, and paranormal activity... fantastic and super well-done blend of it all. Kudos!" (5 stars)
