Nice place to stop and do a tour, but super expensive. If you have balance issues or are in a wheelchair, it is not accessible.

My hubby always plans some fun stops along our Harley ride and this one was a hit. Whether you believe or not, this place DOES make you wonder. Just go with it! Have fun. We sure did.

This place is located along the main highway on the way to Glacier National park. Very interesting place to visit. Great people that work there and a great experience for people of all ages. It's an experience you'll remember for a long time!

Tour was good. Place is almost borderline cheesy with tchotchkes everywhere. Good for kids. Everyone in the tour seemed to enjoy it.

I was very surprised by the effect the place had on me. It made me quite dizzy, but was still facinating. The whole family found the place very interesting. Would definitely recommend checking it out.

In the late 1950's, I visited the Oregon Vortex with my parents, so I was interested in seeing this. It was a fun experience for all of us. I would recommend it for anyone of any age.

Our tour guide was excellent and informative. The house is really cool and for some people might be to difficult to walk in. There was some interesting observations to be made and I still don't know if they were just optical illusions or as they...More

There is not a lot of walking, however, the walking you do have to do is downhill and the house you stand in is slanted, on a hill, making it difficult to stand up for anyone with good knees!

It's at 7800 Hwy 2 East, on the left side of the road as you leave Columbia Falls. Easily visible from the highway.
