The owner of the home that was featured in the classic 80s film The Goonies, has decided to finally close her home to outside visitors, according to a report by KGW News on Thursday.

Owner of ‘The Goonies’ House Closes Home To Tourists

Tourists have traveled to the town of Astoria, in the Northwest tip of Oregon, to visit the house made famous by the popular ’80s movie The Goonies for many years.

But, today, when a tourist stops to take a peek at the iconic home, they are faced with a wall of giant blue tarps and a handwritten note.

The owner of the quaint two-story home where Chunk performed his hilarious truffle shuffle dance, has covered up the property to block the hundreds of visitors who drop by unannounced.

Signs reading “Private Property” and “Access Closed to Goonies House,” are posted outside the home, along with a scribbled note that states the site “sees 1000+ people everyday. Most are kind, fun and welcome, but many are not.”

The house’s owner used to welcome fans and lead quick tours, but social media attention led to a flurry of tourists, some of whom left behind beer bottles and cigarette butts. The messes left behind encouraged the owner to take action.

“I’m surprised that she waited this long,” Astoria City Councilman and neighbor Russ Warr told KGW News.

“Visitors park in the no-parking zones, they park on the sidewalks, they relieve their dogs on the lawns,” Warr pointed out.

“It’s a bummer, as somebody who just wanted to come see a piece of childhood and something that you felt you were apart of,” said Goonies fan Ashley Jones.

The influx of fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the Goonies house, comes a few months after Astoria hosted a four-day 30th-anniversary celebration of the movie.
