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.

My brother and I stopped here (we are both in our 20s) for fun. The tour was entertaining, though all the talk of quantum physics and such is not grounded in anything. The house is super cool, filled with optical illusions. There is nothing that...More

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