You can now stay inside an immaculate replica of the witches’ cottage from ‘Hocus Pocus’

Does anyone else have a long-standing fascination with Salem, Massachusetts, and the idea that real-life former sister witches live in a drug house there, stalking children and steal their souls every time they are resurrected?

If you’re millennial, you should definitely do this because of Disney’s 1993 cult classic Hocus Pocus – one of the greatest Halloween comedy movies of all time (Don’t tread on me. I know it has a terrible RT score. It’s still a delicious treat.)

The iconic Sanderson sisters (Winifred, Sarah and Mary) are so beloved that Disney recently decided to produce a sequel to the first film – 29 years later – featuring the same three superstar actresses as the witch sisters: Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica. Parker.

Hocus Pocus 2 is due out this week (September 30) and fans of the nostalgic film couldn’t be more excited… or rather, they couldn’t have been before Airbnb broke the news that it had converted a ” creaky Old Cottage” into an almost identical replica of the Sanderson sisters’ spooky abode.

“Enter through the window or the waterwheel, but watch your step – a cobweb or two and the smoke from our cauldron awaits you inside,” Airbnb told blogTO this week via email.

“Amid the brooms and apothecary bottles, the Black Flame Candle flickers and our beloved Manual of Witchcraft and Alchemy sleeps soundly – lest something (or someone) should wake him. a beautifully eerie scene that is sure to get guests into the Halloween spirit.”

“It’s a whole bunch of Hocus Pocus at the Sanderson Sisters Cottage, where, for the first time ever, guests can go wild this Halloween season,” reads an Airbnb press release titled “A Spectacularly Spooky Staycation in Ontario in Honor of Hocus Pocus Cottage on Airbnb”.

Unfortunately, despite the confusing title of the release and the language it contains, the Sanderson Sisters’ cabin is not in Ontario.

Rather, it’s tucked away in the remote woods of Salem, Massachusetts, about 1.5 hours from Toronto by plane and 9.5 hours by car.
