Where Is the Twilight House?

The Twilight Cullen house, aka the Cullen’s family residence, is located in Portland, Oregon. Built in 2006, the home boasts 4-bedrooms, 3-bathrooms, and enough lush greenery to provide optimal privacy for creatures of the night.

The impressive 4,903 sqft home sits atop a hill, accessible by the narrow road that leads up to the property.

The sharp edges and sea of glass that makes up the home’s exterior give it a deeply modern, almost mysterious feel. When looking at it from the outside, you could totally believe a family of uber-sophisticated, and wealthy, vampires would live there. The home was last sold in 2007 for $2.5 million.

Twilight House Address

For those dying to know exactly where Edwards house Twilight is located, you’ll find it at 3333 NW Quimby St, Portland, OR 97210. Just Keep in mind that the place is a private residence (with normal, non-vampire people).

Twilight Swan House

Bella’s house Twilight is located in a quiet neighborhood in St Helens Oregon. According to property records, the 2-story home was built in 1925 and was last remodeled in 1970. While reportedly only 1,268 square feet, the home boasts an impressive 5-bedrooms.

The house actually doesn’t look much different to what you see in the film. In fact, the owners still have the same dining table featured in the Twilight movie set up in the house.

If you’ve always wanted to get a closer look at Bella’s abode, it’s actually rentable as an Airbnb! For $379 a night, you can sleep over at the Swan house. The owners even have cardboard cutouts of some of the main cast in various rooms of the home. No…you cannot steal the cardboard cutouts! *wags finger*

Located in Paraty, Brazil, between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, the retreat boasts 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The home, only accessible by helicopter or boat, offers true seclusion and privacy to those looking to escape the hustle and bustle.

Lots of skylights throughout the residence offer gorgeous natural lighting and views of the nearby banana trees. There’s even a private bay not far from the home where guests can enjoy a swim. Not surprisingly, a night at the Twilight house isn’t cheap. If you’re looking to book a stay there, be prepared to dish out around $3,512 per night!

Okay, so while this place was never actually part of the Twilight film franchise, it is definitely still worth a mention. The Miller Tree Inn, aka Cullen house, is actually located in Forks. Additionally, it bares an uncanny resemblance to the Cullen house described in the books.

In the story, Meyers describes the Cullen family home as having a deep wraparound porch, 3 stories, and rectangular in shape. She also states that the home looked around 100 years old and was painted white.

The real farmhouse, turned bed & breakfast, was built in 1916 and was originally owned by the Peterson family. Boasting 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, the Cullen house sits on an acre of land and is surrounded by gorgeously green landscape. Twihard fans looking to get a taste of their favorite book series IRL can rent a room at the inn for around $159 a night.

Where Does Twilight Take Place?

Both in the films and books, the story of angsty Bella Swan’s romance with Edward Cullen takes place in Forks Washington. Forks is located on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula and is big with sport fishers looking to catch rainbow trout and salmon. Its small-town feel and moody, gray atmosphere made it the perfect setting for the teen vampire drama.

Where Was Twilight Filmed?

While some of the production did take place in southwest Washington, no scenes were ever filmed in Forks. In fact, the majority of the film was actually shot in Portland, Oregon, at least until New Moon and Eclipse. The later films were shot in Vancouver, where a complete replica of Bella’s house was constructed for filming.

Twilight Cast

The Twilight franchise has had its fair share of A-listers signing up to join the series. Some noteworthy additions to the films included Michael Sheen, Dakota Fanning, and Anna Kendrick.

In the end, however, it was Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Billy Burke that helped make the Twilight films the mega hits that they were. For those who somehow may have forgotten, Pattinson played Edward Cullen, Stewart – Bella Swan, Taylor Lautner – Jacob Black, and Billy Burke was Charlie Swan. All the original cast have gone on to have relatively successful careers following the Twilight series.
