The Curdled Cave first appeared in The Wide Window as a location on Lake Lachrymose surrounding the Baudelaire's new hometown.

It is first mentioned to the Baudelaire Orphans as they come to live with their new guardian Aunt Josephine Anwhistle who tells she used to be quite adventurous when her dead husband Ike Anwhistle was alive.

She recounts them as travelling all the way from Horrid Harbor to Curdled Cave.

Aunt Josephine is then eventually attacked by Count Olaf under the disguise of a sailor named Captain Sham who invites his way back to her home while the Baudelaire Children will shop for a dinner for all of them.

Back at the house Count Olaf reveals his true identity to Aunt Josephine and then forces her into writing a last will and testament crossed with a suicide note.

Aunt Josephine then formulated an escape and secret message to be found by the Baudelaire's which will reveal the hiding place she will be at.

Josephine then threw a chair out the window and flung herself down into the water below before getting into a canoe and paddling off to Curdled Cave.

Violet, Klaus and Sunny then returning home discovered her note pieced together the grammatical errors of the note knowing not even in her own death note would she use bad grammar survive Hurricane Herman which destroys her home sail off in the other canoe of her house to Curdled Cave.

There they find her and asked to live there with her.

Klaus, Violet and Sunny then persuade Josephine out of her irrerational fear of realtors to leave Curdled Cave where she is soon thrown to the leeches by Count Olaf.
