I’ve got two breaking updates for die-hard Hocus Pocus fans. One, Hocus Pocus 2 is officially available for streaming on Disney +, so you better get your subscriptions ready. The other big news comes from Airbnb. The San Francisco-based company is inviting two lucky guests for a night’s stay at the infamous Sanderson Sisters’ cottage.
It’s been 29 years since the release of your favorite Halloween movie and the short-term homestays company is celebrating its resurrection by offering a stay inside the fabled cottage on October 20. If you are a hardcore fan of the 1993 cult classic and always dreamt of spending a night inside the spooky dwelling, this is your calling.
Since the release of Hocus Pocus, the cottage in Danvers, Massachusetts, has gained a menacing reputation of cinema’s most creepy spots. Interestingly, the cottage is also hosted by the Sanderson Sisters (Sarah, Winifred, and Mary- played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy, respectively) so you may have your fan moment there, too.
The cottage exterior looks dilapidated as if it’s been abandoned for 300 years, which it was when the sisters were hanged for witchcraft in 1693, before being resurrected in 1993. The interior is adorned with every spooky element possible to make it a near-perfect replica of the witches’ home from the 1993 cult classic.
To add a fair dose of horror, the interior is filled with apothecary bottles, broomsticks, a smoking cauldron, cobwebs, and a number of candles to give it a proper Halloween charm. Winifred’s spellbook is locked safely inside the glass; do not touch it.
The cottage is available for rent on Airbnb and can be booked for just $31. Unfortunately, the cottage can be rented for one night and booking opens at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 12. Just in case you are not able to make it, there are many other haunted Airbnbs in the US you should dare to visit.
