While the original listing didn't mention the Avengers at all, after the news of the house's cinematic fame broke, its owners (presumably inspired by the ghost of greedy corporate overlord Tony Stark) decided to cash in. They scrapped all the folksy talk in favor of a description that read: "This is the iconic cabin from the Avengers Endgame! Tony Stark's home and funeral site from the film." Which may be the only time a tragic death been used to advertise a vacation property.
The owners also jacked the price up from $335 a night to $800, then eventually a whopping $1,092. (For that money, hopefully they throw in a can of Febreze to cover up the stench of whatever Goop products Gwenyth Paltrow brought with her during filming.) For whatever reason, the listing doesn't seem to be up anymore, either because the media attention has left the owner swamped with requests or due to some kind of time-travel-related anomaly.
