Then the city of Astoria encourages 100,000’s of people to come and stand in front and view it. The house, which was once a very popular tourist destination and the site of an annual Goonies convention and multiple cast reunions, has been closed to visitors after the owner grew disenfranchised with people visiting it every single day. The woman, who still lives inside the house, has covered the front of the property in a blue tarpaulin.
- The woman who owns the house from ‘The Goonies’ has one good reason why tourists are no longer allowed on her lawn.
- Before it was closed to the public, the house was still attracting more than 1,500 visitors a day, who had arrived in the small coastal town of Astoria just to see the landmark in person.
- The owner had no problem with people dropping by for a quick peek at the house, and loves the 80s nostalgia that comes with living in the property.
