“More like a curiosity only.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

But the town is so small so it's not more than a 2-5 min drive to peer in and see what curious, odd, strange house this is. We did not have the urge to take the tour, so it was worth to just peruse around the perimeter.

“Not!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Don't take the time out of your day to visit. It is really not maintained and looks like a hazard. We were actually afraid to go inside.

“Unlike Anything Else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I saw this attraction on Trip Advisor and it was along the way I was traveling and since it took no time at all to take a look at it, thought I might as well check it out.

The longer you stair at the house, the more unique items you can see. I read that you can make arrangements with the new owners and get a tour if you want but I just marveled in it from the outside. I think reading up on how the house was made was interesting.

“Why all the hype??”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Not worth going out of your way to see. Just a rundown house that was put together with leftovers. Limited parking and turning around in the area.
