Where was A Quiet Place filmed? The House and ALL the Filming Locations

Posted by Ra Moon

In a post-apocalyptic world, some mysterious creatures are hunting a family of survivors, tracking them through sound. The law of safety #1 is not to make a sound at all. They have to live as quietly as possible... otherwise horrible things will happen.

A Quiet Place was filmed in a few towns in New York, in Herkimer, Dutchess, and Ulster Counties. Most of the movie takes place in a beautiful 19th-century house.

The cast with Emily Blunt

A Quiet Place is an acclaimed supernatural horror film, directed and performed by John Krasinski (known for his role on television's comedy The Office and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan). Also starring is his real-life wife, Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow, Mary Poppins Returns).

Here is our soundless, almost spoiler-free guide to all the filming locations of this highly recommended thriller.

You can also find all the locations where the sequel A Quiet Place 2 was filmed following this link.

The A Quiet Place House

A Quiet Place farm
The farmhouse where the family lives is located in the town of Pawling, off a trail at 623 W Dover Road.

According to the Pawling public records, the house was built in 1880 and has approximately 5,732 square feet, nine beds with four full bathrooms. The property sits on nearly 417 acres of land.

A Quiet Place house
However, the family lives in the barn because, according to Krasinski, it had a dirt floor and they were able to remain quiet. The old, creaky house is too noisy, and in the movie, thanks to some CGI a tree has fallen on the roof.

A Quiet Place city
The town agreed to let a section of the Lakeside Park area, where the property is situated, grow over to give the location a more sinister feel.

Behind the scenes
Also in Pawling, the production filmed several parts of the movie on a sound stage set here on location.

According to Hudson Valley Magazine, a new metal silo was built, the film crew doubled the size of the barn, and the production bought 20 tons of corn to film several scenes. The shoot took thirty-six days to complete.


Where was A Quiet Place filmed
One of the first, tragic scenes of the movie was recorded on a rusty metallic bridge, which has become one of the icons of the movie.

The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail bridge in New Paltz is part of a 15-mile long park that follows a railroad line that ceased service in 1997.

The final look of the enigmatic creature wasn't fully decided until the process during post-production. The same John Krasinski, dressed in a motion capture suit, played the creature for a few scenes.

Walking in the woods near the house
The old man's house that Lee and his son, Marcus, walk by in the movie (pictured) is located almost three miles south of Abbott's farm, near Green Mountain Lake.

The village location
The Main Street in the small town of Little Falls in Herkimer County was given an eerie look, like an abandoned area, to shoot one of the movie’s early sequences.

Did you know that actress Millicent Simmonds, who plays Regan Abbott (Lee and Evelyn's deaf daughter) has been deaf since childhood due to a medication overdose? The film only contains about 25 lines of voiced dialogue; sign language is used extensively.

The waterfall scene
The waterfalls featured in the movie are Buttermilk Falls, located on the outskirts of Little Falls. The Buttermilk Falls State Park has a small lake, hiking trails through woodlands, a campground, and a beautiful natural pool.

A Quiet Place drehort
The interior scene of the supermarket was shot at the Beacon Natural Market shop on Main Street in Beacon, NY.

The master of the horror story, Stephen King, said in a tweet that the movie "is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera's eye open wide in a way few movies manage."

I found the old man's house that the father and son walk by in the movie. It is not far from the farm that was used in Pawling, New York. In Google Maps, search on the coordinates 41.580816, -73.610907. It will pinpoint the house.

I believe the house is in the town of Pawling not the village of Pawling.

Does anyone know the exact address of the house?
