Thirty years ago, a witch named Winifred Sanderson sang, “I put a spell on you, and now you’re mine,” and though it was just a scene from a Halloween movie for children, the sentiment holds—Hocus Pocus has been firmly nestled in the pantheon of spooky season mainstays for three decades. For some, it just doesn’t feel like fall until they’ve watched the campy cult classic about three witchy sisters who rose from the dead on All Hallow’s Eve.
For those who can’t get enough of Winifred and her sisters Mary and Sarah Sanderson, Airbnb announced Wednesday that it’s hosting an exclusive stay at a re-creation of the trio’s homey haunt in the woods near Salem, Massachusetts.
For one night only (October 20), two guests will have the run of the two-bedroom, half-bath cottage, which has been decked out to look like the Sanderson Witch Museum that Max, Allison, and Dani visit in the 1993 movie—magic spells book and Black Flame Candle included.
The announcement comes just days before the sequel, Hocus Pocus 2, drops on Disney+ on September 30.
The Hocus Pocus house is the latest of Airbnb listings tied to big and small screen anniversaries. Previously, the company has offered five nights at the original mansion from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (to mark the 30th anniversary of the show airing) and a month at the home featured in The Godfather (in celebration of the film’s 50th).
How to book
Booking opens at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 12, so if you’re hoping to score the exclusive one-night stay, you’ll have to be at the ready when the listing goes live at airbnb.com/hocuspocus2.
