Haunting of Storybook Hollow

Interactive Experience in Comstock Park

This one is more than just a driveby – you can walk the haunted trails! Follow their Facebook page for the latest updates.

The story goes like this: The characters who live in Storybook Hollow are having an exciting festival when they are suddenly visited by the ghosts of villains past! Watch out for your favorite characters, with a twist. The Queen of Hearts is looking a little gray, and Peter Pan’s crew has run into trouble, among many others!

That dragon in the castle? They MADE it. And the sea serpent. And so much more.

The entire house’s facade is transformed into a feast of frightful whimsy that people drive for miles around to see. Storybook Hollow is being updated daily, and on Halloween, trick-or-treaters can find a candy chute to send goodies their way.

The Westgate community where this house is holds an annual Halloween display competition, so the entire neighborhood will get creepier as Halloween draws nearer.

  1. Hi,
    Any chance you can post this under McCabe house. There have been a few “close-calls”. if you stop at the McCabe house- you can park on Conservation or pull over to the grass. Please do not stop quick in the street on McCabe.

  2. There’s another house in Jenison, on Redwood dr that decorates every year. This year’s theme is, “Monsters Ball”.

  3. Just wanted to confirm that Thornapple DR and Laraway Lake in Ada (Oliver Woods neighborhood) is decked out to the hilt! Much like Christmastime, the first house at the entrance goes ALL out; and many other houses throughout the neighborhood join in on a smaller scale.

  4. 1447-1449 Escott Ave. NW. We have a 7ft werewolf, Pennywise the dancing clown (IT), skeleton horse and stagecoach, a 6ft spider on the roof and plenty of inflatables, including the whole Halloweentown cast from Nightmare before Christmas! Add us to the list!!!

  5. It seems odd that this article doesn’t include a map link with all the addresses. Even worse, now that I want to make one, nothing on this site can be highlighted for copy/pasting? This is great information, not very usable.

      1. How do you make the list? We are down the street from Kinview and Kinrow.
        We decorate pretty good over here too.

  6. Please add a house that on Melita Ave off of Knapp St. I don’t know the specific address, but each year the home owner goes above and beyond with decor and actually dressing up to greet trick-or-treaters with a BOO!

    1. Yes! I’ve seen this house and it’s honestly one of the best houses because the owner goes above-and-beyond in dressing up too!

      1. Ashely – Thank you for the shout-out! I am the crazy Halloween lady you speak of and I am on the list above. We rented on Melita but purchased and moved to 921 Shawmut Ct NW!
