A Hocus Pocus cottage is now available on Airbnb – and it’s the perfect place to stay this Halloween. 

The rental, which is inspired by the Sanderson Sisters’ historic home, is located in Salem, Massachusetts.

On the Airbnb news website, it says: “It’s all a bunch of Hocus Pocus at the Sanderson Sisters’ cottage, where, for the first time ever, guests can run amok this Halloween season when the soul-stealing, spellbinding trio invites visitors to get into the Halloween ‘spirit’ with an overnight stay at the scene of their scheming.”

It adds: “As though untouched by time, our creaky old cottage stands tall amidst the trees, beckoning visitors as if by trance. Enter by window or water wheel, but watch your step – a cobweb or two and the smoke from our cauldron await you inside.

“Amidst the broomsticks and apothecary bottles, the Black Flame Candle flickers and our beloved Manual of Witchcraft and Alchemy sleeps deeply – lest something (or someone) wakes it. It’s a magnificently eerie scene certain to get guests in the Halloween ‘spirit’.”

Bookings will be open for the Hocus Pocus cottage on October 12 and will be given on a first come first basis for two guests. The exclusive stay will take place on October 20.

Despite the fact it will be such a highly desired spot, it will apparently only cost $31. However, this doesn’t include taxes and fees.

For the lucky few who get to stay at the cottage, you won’t just get a taste of what it’s like to live in the Sanderson Sisters’ home, but what it’s also like to be a spellcaster, as the Airbnb website states that guests will get the chance to test out some enchantments from an ‘ancient spellbook’.

Elite Daily reports it’s likely that guests will also get to see some of the filming locations from the original Hocus Pocus.

On Airbnb, it advises the lucky visitors to: “Explore the dark, rich history of Salem with visits to some of the town’s most haunted properties.”

Excited fans have taken to Twitter and reacted to the Hocus Pocus Airbnb rental.

Tagging a friend, one tweeted: “OMG let’s have a witch party there!”

Another added: “Spooktacularly fabulous.”

While a fourth said: “Let’s gooooo.”

Hocus Pocus 2 is set to arrive on Disney+ on September 30. However, if you want to refresh your memory or are keen to binge-watch lots of Halloween movies, the original is also on the streaming platform.

All three Sanderson Sisters (Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy) will be returning for the cult classic and to the delight of fans, Doug Jones (from The Shape of Water) will also be returning as Billy Butcherson.
