Not open to the public, simply a drive-by to see that he lives rather simply on a public street with neighbors on each side and the front door not 50 feet from the street. He's a citizen of the community from what it looks like.

Great old style home with "spooky" gate. It feels the part of Stephen King and his novels. You can picture Stephen up in the towers deep in thought penning his next novel.

A great little stop. The house looks like it could be from some of his books! Be sure to look at all the details in the wrought iron fence. There are several other magnificent old homes on his street.

Made a quick stop by Stephen King's House (one of several that he owns) while in Bangor, and was not disappointed. The mansion itself had an open driveway with vehicles outside of it, which I found incredible considering that the occupants blended in with the...More

Beautiful home! I looked at the house across the street that is for sale, but ended up with another home in the area. After taking the SK tour, I learned how much Stephen and Tabitha King have done for the town of Bangor, Maine. They...More
