Astoria, Washington, is home to a number of movie locations, including the house from The Goonies. But while that house is closed to visitors by owners tired of fans stopping by to take photos, the house that provided the exterior for Stephanie Speck’s house in Short Circuit is open for tours and even to be rented for events and overnight stays. Lovingly and painstakingly restored as closely as possible to its original screen appearance, the inside of the house has also been converted to match as closely as possible the rooms seen in the movie.
There is memorabilia to see inside, including posters, original artwork, and more. You can also catch amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and the famous Astoria-Megler bridge from the back porch. Number 5 hasn’t visited the Short Circuit House yet, but you never know what might be in store for the future as the owner continues to improve this beautiful piece of film history.
