The spooky cottage featured in the popular movie Hocus Pocus has been transformed into a real life accommodation for two lucky guests to experience on Halloween eve.
The home suitable for a group of clever witches is located in a wooded area in Salem, a town in Massachusetts known for the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and as the filming location for several outdoor scenes in the movie.
The outside of the three-story house has been designed to resemble the home of the Sanderson Sisters, the witchy siblings who were “resurrected” by a spell in the 1993 film. It features creeping ivy and a wooden waterwheel.
Every aspect of the interior has been meticulously crafted, featuring weathered wooden furniture adorned with cobwebs, a cauldron suspended over eerie green dry ice “flames,” a spellbook, jars of potions, and traditional candelabras.
Airbnb, a platform for booking accommodations, is offering a house for two individuals to stay in as part of the festivities for the sequel to the film. During their stay, guests will have the opportunity to watch an early screening of the film before it is officially released on Disney+.
The sequel to Hocus Pocus will be released on the streaming platform on September 30th. It features the return of the original actresses who portrayed the Sanderson Sisters – Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.
Najimy, portraying the character of Mary Sanderson, expressed that spending the night in the house would be a memorable experience that would be cherished for years to come.
The cost for one person and their guest to stay for one night at the property is $31.
Individuals interested in reserving a stay at the property on October 20th can submit a booking request on Airbnb starting October 12th at 6pm GMT/1pm ET.
Airbnb frequently displays unique and occasionally strange accommodations to rent.
A month-long stay at a mansion located in Staten Island, New York, which was featured in exterior shots of the iconic gangster movie The Godfather, is available for booking at a rate of $50 per night.
Recently, a family of four gained attention on social media when they shared their experience of accidentally booking a 114-square foot “doll’s house” for their stay in New York.
