The Door County Mushroom House - This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner.

Very little is known about this mysterious underground abode, other than that it was built by an artist who lived in the Door County area. It was quite a grand place at one time, but has been left to deteriorate somewhat and the windows have been boarded up due to constant vandalism.

"The “Mushroom House".  This is actually in Fish Creek, a little north of the Sturg, and it’s pretty awesome.  The story goes that some architect built it years ago as a summer home, and then either went bankrupt or died, and his wife hated the place so much that she just up and left.  Apparently at one point a door had blown in and you could actually walk inside, but now it’s all boarded up and is basically a place where high school kids trespass at night."

Good thing I'm opposed to private property, free to explore at my own risk :)

I've been there many times when I was a teenager. The original furniture and everything is still in it. It's really a cool place to see.
