Sexy Retreat - Another one of those Time Capsule Places

Last year, my exploring partner and I were combing through google maps looking for anything interesting for a possible future road trip. We dropped pins on all kinds of locations and never ended up going to them, save them for another day.

Not long ago, RiddimRyder decided to check on one of those pins. It was something that looked promising with an overgrown driveway, it was not a sure thing on maps view but worth checking out if in the area.

It turns out that our suspicions were correct and we had stumbled upon something very special here. He made a quick visit and then we both went back a couple of weeks later.

The approach was crazy and the walk up the long driveway was very challenging, with what looked like a decades worth of dead trees dropped and scattered along the whole way up.

As soon as we entered the house I was reminded of my first visit to the Cat Lady house back in 2012.

This is the kind of house that makes you think they just up and split and never looked back. The last calendar on the wall was 2002, and all of the bills left laying about were also from the same year. The whole time we felt as though someone would come back at any moment, but I can't see anyone trekking up that driveway just to check on a place. There was pretty bad water damage in the living room and ceiling tiles had dropped onto the couch and carpet and it was stained green from the water damage.

RiddimRyder had named this location "Sexy Retreat" after seeing the mirror on the ceiling in the master bedroom.

There was no shortage of details and interesting things to explore and shoot in the different rooms of the house:

We had spent so much time upstairs that we entirely neglected the basement. Riddim was ready to start packing up when I went down to see what was down there. I let him know he may want to reconsider, the basement was a treasure chest of stuff. The pictures below do this no justice, but the old man of the house must have had every issue of Playboy from the 70's and 80's down there packed away in boxes and shelves! I also found an old Radio Flyer wagon, guitar, trumpet, gramophone, the list goes on! Problem was, it was pretty dark down there and quite honestly there was just simply way too much stuff to know what to do with....and we had been there far too long!

Holy Twilight Zone, Batman!
I've never seen -anything- like that
You sure you didn't buy tickets to get in?

Wow. Superb find.
And generally I don't like house explores...






Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

Thank you sir, indeed houses are not for everyone - places like this only happen once or twice a year, if that!

The captures you got in this house are unreal. All the antiques, collectibles, left behind. What got me is the folded clothes at the foot of the bed. Places like this are haunting and you cant help but wonder what happened to the people that once lived there. Did they take a trip into town and get into a horrible accident and die? Was there any cars still left in the garage? parked outside? The trees across the driveway tell a story in its self. Someone didnt want anyone there, but vacant since 2002. WOW! Great explore Freak. If you have more history or knowledge of what happened here please pm. me ....im really intrigued. Thanks!

Holy Crap !!!

This is truly a rare find indeed...soo creepy as you're right it does look like somebody will return home any moment. When you find places like this it does make your mind wander wondering what happened for all this to just be left forgotten in time. This type of explore is what really ticks my tock !!

I can't stop re-looking at all the details in each picture. Excellent share !!

Cat Lady house indeed; but no solitary woman here living on her own. A whole family leaving this??? Strange that nobody has gone back. I totally remember all the publicity from my childhood behind the month that Vanna was featured in Playboy.

Nice place! The only drawback? If 'decay' was 'cowbell'... this would be me:

With time, it's already starting in the living room, the exterior is in much worse shape than the inside.

Great find, man! Those folded clothes on the bed definitely up the creepy factor, as if they'd literally just gotten up and left.

Honest confession though, as a toy car collector I probably wouldn't have been able to resist grabbing the ones in the pics.

Have you tried Googling the street address, names on the bills, etc?

SOMEONE -- ideally the rightful owner/heir, should salvage some of those nice items inside the house before everything completely rots, burns-up, etc.

The fire hat would have a name on the inside if he was a captain, you'd find relatives and obits from that probably.

Not it's a cornet, a cousin of the trumpet. I own both trumpet and cornet. Was once a music ed major back in the day.
