Jon buys a cheap house in a mountain range, unaware of what is in store for him and his pets.
Jon Arbuckle and his pets are driving through a mountain range, where Arbuckle enjoys the view. Garfield talks with Odie about his alphabetical sandwich as Jon suddenly gets the idea of having a mountain retreat, where they could take vacations. Jon stops at a real estate office, which is run by a man named Samuel P. Escrow, who tells Arbuckle that they can take a drive through the mountains to find a house. Escrow shows Jon a house which is in the latter's price range before telling Arbuckle that the house is haunted. Jon does not believe this, and signs the contract. Arbuckle offers Escrow a drive back to the office, which Escrow refuses.
In the evening, Jon, ready to go to bed, expresses his surprise that the previous owners left all their furniture. Odie becomes scared at the idea of a haunted house, which both Jon and Garfield shrug off. Garfield gives Odie some of his alphabetical sandwich before both hear a ghostly sound. The furniture begins to float, prompting the pets to hide in another room. They check again, finding the furniture back on the ground, only to then find that they are being followed by a giant ape. Garfield and Odie run to Jon's room, waking the latter up. Arbuckle asks what is wrong before they all see a skeleton in front of the bed. The trio get back into their car, as Jon plans to get their deposit from Samuel Escrow.
Jon knocks at the real estate office's door. They find a different man under the same surname as Samuel to answer. The man tells Jon that he has been away for six weeks, and only got back in the evening. Odie points to a picture of Samuel Escrow, before Jon points out that the man in the painting sold him a house. Mr. Escrow tells Arbuckle that Samuel was his grandfather, who had passed away in 1973. Realizing they have bought a house from a ghost, Jon and his pets run out of the agency in a frenzy and drive away. Samuel Escrow's ghost appears next to his grandson, before they split half of the money.
