About This Attraction:
Are you really open year round?
Yes! Our hours are M/Tu/Th/Fri/Sat/Sun 7pm-midnight. (closed Wed though may open if arranged days in advance) During spring through fall we also add the afternoon hours on Sat and Sun of 2-5pm (and again 7-midnight).
As far as when we close, you can pretty much count on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Sporadically throughout the off season we may take a day here and there to go out and/or work on things within the house that could disrupt tours, but we will try and post this on our website or facebook. If all else fails you can call ahead and listen to the message to hear if we are open that night.
In the wintertime we defintely ask you to call before heading out here. With weather conditions being unpredictable we technically “close” during the week unless someone calls. Remember to check the weather before you head out in the winter, just because it is clear where you live doesn’t mean we are not buried under ice and snow.
Do I need a reservation to come there?
No, you never need a reservation to come here. Just show up during our business hours and buy a ticket. Sometimes there may be a wait, but you will get in as long as you are here by closing time. Having a reservation, meaning you paid in advance, would help alleviate some of the wait time, but again you do NOT need a reservation.
How long is the tour?
In general, the tour lasts 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.
Is there a minimum/maximum group size?
Minimum, no. You can come by yourself. As for maximum, we try not to go over 15 people (In October we try to keep groups as close to 10 as possible to help patron flow in the house). Keep in mind if you come here for example as a group of 3 and there are 8 more people wanting a tour at the same time, you will be made into one group to enter the house. If you are wanting a better chance of having your own private tour, you will need to come during the off season, tho we cannot guarantee you will be alone.
Is this appropiate for children?
Yes, we try to cater to whomever is in your group. Please understand if you bring your child here, we will do everything we can to keep them in the house and having a great time. This usually involves the house becoming even more interactive than a “normal” tour as we want the experience to be a positive one for yourself and your child. Because of this, we recommend bringing any younger children during the afternoon hours on the weekends where we are likely to be less busy and have the extra time available to accomodate you. Unfortunately in the evenings in October we cannot offer a variance to our normal tour.
What is the cost of admission?
$15.00 per person all group sizes. Children 9 and under are $13.00
