Not easy to find all the houses or get close to them, but was interesting to see. Worth the few minutes of driving.

We went to the Visitor's center to get the walking tour map and saw the homes on our own. They are so unique - we enjoyed seeing each of the homes. If we had time we would have taken the tour - maybe next time!

Had a very nice time. Nice to be informed of the back ground of the homes instead of just walking past. We would highly recommend this tour.

On vrbo you can rent a small mushroom home. I am not sure they allow dogs. The remaining are all private residences so you will view them only from the exterior. They are absolutely intriguing to view. I enjoyed them and... More
