If you're like me, you love finding places that they film your favorite shows. Georgia is ripe with filming location for big Netflix shows like "Stranger Things"
The Victor Creel House from Season 4 of the hit Netflix series is a real home in Rome, GA. It is an actual residence and the homeowners aren't big fans of people lurking around but it's really cool to go see.
This video from Youtube was shot just before they began filmling on location. A large backdrop helped block off the buildings across the street from the Creel house. The playground seen in 'Stranger Things' was actually put in post editing. It doesn't really exist.
The physical address is 906 E 2nd Ave SW and the home was most recently operated as a bed and breakfast called the Claremont House until 2019. The current owners are in the process of renovating it to use as a private residence.
