Just outside Salem, Massachusetts sits a quaint cottage full of magic. It was once home to the Sanderson Sisters, but you can book a stay there thanks to Airbnb. Spend a night amongst the curiosities, potions, and many, many candles. Though we’ve seen Hocus Pocus enough times that we don’t recommend using the black flame candle. You’ll need magic on your side to win this one-time one-night stay. See the Hocus Pocus Airbnb listing for more details and pictures. Meanwhile, you can watch Hocus Pocus 2 as often as you want on Disney+.
The Airbnb promotion offers a one-time opportunity to crash in this witchy Hocus Pocus pad. The Manual of Witchcraft and Alchemy is on hand if you want to try out any spells. Just don’t run amok, there’s no parties or events allowed. No children or pets either. But some of the pictures show a black kitty. If it’s actually Thackery Binx, that breaks both rules. Even though the black flame candle and lots of others are part of the décor, the site says not to light any of them. That’s probably for the best.
The cottage is even hosted by The Sanderson Sisters who, in their verified Airbnb profile, describe themselves as, “a trio of delightfully wicked witches, resurrected once more from our seventeenth-century graves. The bravest among you are welcome to stay a night in our bewitched home, but be warned, we’re hungrier than ever for eternal youth.” Sounds staying at this Hocus Pocus Airbnb will be a dangerous but delightful experience, we’d expect nothing less.
This isn’t the first time Airbnb has offered one-time rentals with a movie twist. There was the Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine van in Malibu and the Moulin Rogue windmill in Paris. And who wouldn’t want to spend the holidays in the Home Alone house? Airbnb even offered a night in the New York City FAO Schwarz flagship store. While all of those sound delightful, this latest Hocus Pocus Airbnb is truly magical.
