Once September enters our calendars, it instantly becomes Halloween season. The spooky mood is taking over one particularly eerie mansion during fall and it has turned into a gothic experience like no other. The Wonder House is a 10,000 square-foot mansion with a 1920s architectural design that boasts glamour and eerie vibes.

The mansion is hosting the most spooktacular tours during October. Krislin Kreis and Drew Davis are the owners of the Wonder House and each season they decorate their property with the most gothic-inspired elements.

Halloween-themed tours started on Oct. 4 and run through Oct. 27. Each tour will offer a historic tour around the Wonder House with proceeds from the tour going towards renovations. 

The historic mansion began construction in 1926, however, the property is currently being renovated. The Wonder House features 24 rooms over four floors with many curiosities, unique furniture, intricate hand-laid mosaic floors and other original renovations providing a gothic-like environment.

Currently, the Wonder House only hosts tours by appointment. You can book an appointment online here.

The tour features a personal collection of Krislin and Drew with one-of-a-kind displays including other antiques. The mansion made an appearance in the Netflix show Amazing Interiors episode nine, featuring the renovation plan. 

Not only is this a unique mansion hidden in Florida but it will also make The Addams Family feel jealous. So, if you are looking for an original way to spend Halloween season, visit this magnificent mansion and explore its surroundings.
