“Do the truffle shuffle!”
The house the kids were going to lose in the Goonies! The very reason they needed to find 'One Eyed Willy's' gold! Now a private residence, but they will let you go up the driveway for a photo as long as you are respectful. So be respectful dammit!!! :) ***If you're planning on visiting Mikey and Data's houses, keep in mind that they are private residences, so it helps to park at the nearby Astor Elementary School and walk to the homes, and remember to not be loud or disrespectful... there's also a great viewpoint from the waterfront area across the highway, too!
If you're a geocacher be sure to pull out your app, there's one near the house! Also a fun bonus - the elementary school that's nearby was used in Kindergarten Cop! Tons of cool film locations around Astoria.
I am going to buy this house one day. Even if I have to forcibly evict the family that currently lives there. Muhahaha!
Can't see it. Don't bother. People shouldn't buy famous houses if they are going to be mad that people want to take photos...I mean, it's the GOONIES!!! Such a disappointment.
The man who lives there now is very hostile to anyone walking anywhere near the house. The small donation box that used to be there and the sign that said foot traffic was accepted are long gone. We saw that one of the houses was for sale (partially visible in the movie for a brief moment), so we went up anyway. When we got halfway up the drive leading to all the houses on the hill (a public road until the telephone pole we learned from the very friendly neighbor), he came out on his porch to shout at us. We explained that we were there to see the house for sale, and he told us to go straight to the house, i.e. don't stop and take pictures.
Hey! Cool scene, I only give it 5 stars so you see that I'm here to tell you that it is currently closed for renovation, possibly indefinitely. It's largely covered in blue tarps as well.
Every year there's a Goonies festival in Astoria and this house is a major attraction for fans. Definitely take a video of yourself doing the truffle shuffle!
So cool. I wanted to go up on the balcony SO BAD but restrained myself as I'm sure the family who lives there now wouldn't have liked it very much. Pretty safe to say keep your picture taking to the sidewalk. GOONIES NEVER DIE!
Haha I got cut off. What I was going to say was it was a blast to find. So worth looking for if your a fan.
We had a hard time finding it and so did a lot of other people. If you
The Goonies House is closed...big sign that police will be called!!!!
