Cool find. I'd always wondered if it was a real house or one just built for the film.

Man, can you imagine the fun an Indy fan would have if one was able to buy it? Haha!!

Would be nice, wouldn't it? And judging from the movie, a fantastic landscape!

Check out the mailbox! It still says "Jones"!

But I'm wondering if a postal carrier would even deliver way out there.

That's alright, I'd have to keep it up anyway.

I didn't even notice that. That's pretty cool. From the interior pics, it seems like people still live(d) there, so I would assume there's still mail service. Looks like there's another house next door, too.

I'll have to add this to my list of future movie locations to see in person should I ever get back to Colorado, now that I know it's an existing location.

These people probably knew that the value would increase as a result of the new movie, and figured that now was more than likely the best time for a sale.

I wonder how high it'll go?

Be a cool spot for an Indy fan to hold an annual fan get-together and do a marathon of the movies.

Dude, if thats the best thing you could think of doing, you need to widen your imagination.
I would go to comic con and brag to all the hot chicks dressed as slave leia that I live in the last crusade house, then we could have our own private shindig down there.

The house was for sale about a year or so ago (not on ebay) - A lot cheaper then too.

All this time and that house was only only 4-5 hours from my home...
I've driven by or near that area plenty of times for ski trips, camping trips, etc.....

I'm going to have to take a drive down and see it, just for giggles and grins

That's actually a pretty good price for a piece of mountain property in the great state of Colorado. It's not far from Telluride, Durango, and some beautiful high country.

The market is a bit depressed at the moment....

Does anyone remember when they had the 2-story Friday the 13th Part 2 camp counselor house up for bid on eBay? That auction had a much more reasonable opening bid, although the house needed to be moved from its present locale.

I wish I had saved that auction with the photos, as it was a cool item to see present day....

I'd have loved to see that one myself.

Be nice to have enough money to monopolize a whole collection of homes like that... maybe even the Amityville house... the REAL Amityville house.

Considering buying The Last Crusade Home

All, I am a newbie to your forum. I have been a big Indy fan for years. The Last Crusade Home is for sale in Colorado, myself and an investor are considering buying and making vacation/rental home with Indy's Childhood Home theme. This might be a way to make Indy more real to be able to stay in his childhood home. Please help me with ideas.... Thanks.

I see that So Wa Moo (or whatever) is back.

TalkDoctor, that sounds like a wonderful idea. But, do you think you'd make any profit with it? I mean how many Indiana Jones fans would stay there? Is there a big enough fanbase to warrant the purchase?

That is one thing that I am unsure about. How many fans would want to stay there? What ideas do you all have to make it work?

I would stay there, but my budget would never let me.
I would say that there would definitely be Indy fans that would stay there, and also movie buffs.
Not only would you spend money to purchase the home, but also to remodel it the way you wish, and the advertising of it.

I would talk to people who know more about these types of things, and get as much input from all fields (Indy fans, movie buffs, real estate agents, etc). Also, would this violate any copyright laws with LucasFilm? How would you use the Indiana Jones name if it did?

Drifter, thanks for the ideas. I am looking everywhere for ideas. What other ideas to Raven members have? How should this place be presented. Would a Indy Childhood bedroom design be more important than an entry room designed like in the movie? Where could I advertise this place? Thanks.
