You have to walk on a ramp through the treetops to reach the entrance of this remarkable house, built in the 1940s.

Amazing place. So much to look at. Collections of everything. Allow plenty of time, like HOURS. The carousel is incredible.

Not what we expected. Took us almost 4 hours to get through all 3 sections. So much to see. Pretty different than any other attractions in the area.

It is very difficult to write a review for this place. To call it a house is a misnomer- no one would ever live in this place. It is perhaps the work of a madman. The place is dark, dusty and just plain odd. People...More

It is closed after the Christmas holiday and reopens in March- if you download the 2018 brochure from the website, there is a calendar for the year.

We stayed at the Don Q Inn. Very interesting. Not sure about dogs. I don't think so. They have theme rooms you can rent. More reasonably priced than others in area. Good sized rooms.
