Madison Off The Beaten Path: 19 reviews and 30 photos

House on the Rock.

Amazing place, you'll either love it or think it's real tacky. Hard to explain....it's got everything and a lot of it.

Alex Jordan, a collector, owned and started it. Not in Madison, but in Spring Green about 30 miles west of here. I was last here 15 years ago and it took 4 or 5 hours to walk thru it all. Thankfully there was a cafeteria like place about 2/3 of the way through.

High point is the 'infinity room' a small narow room that comes to a point about 218 feet off the building. All glass, you can look down and you're about 154 feet above the ground and nothing but trees below you.

Has a huge carousel in the middle of it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
