You could stay at the Sanderson sisters’ cottage from ‘Hocus Pocus’
The Sanderson sisters are back – and now you can stay in their spooky Massachusetts cottage from the popular 1993 movie ‘Hocus Pocus.’ The sequel to the movie premiered this week and to celebrate, Airbnb offers a stay during a reconstruction of the house where the three main characters of witchcraft lived.
In the first film, the Sanderson sisters – played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy – live in an old house frozen in time for 300 years. Airbnb has recreated the cottage in the backwoods of Danvers, Massachusetts, and is offering an exclusive stay for the first to book the property.
The stay is not a contest, but only two guests can enjoy the Airbnb October 20 for just $31. Guests can explore nearby Salem, where the film is set, explore the magic of the cottage, including the film’s manual of sorcery and alchemy, and attend an exclusive screening of “Hocus Pocus 2”.
The cottage includes brooms, apothecary bottles and the Black Flame candle and cauldron from the movie.
Booking for the Airbnb disaster opens on October 12. Airbnb is also donating to Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salemwhich aims to help young people in the community succeed.
Midler, Parker and Najimy all returned for the sequel and spoke with CBS News’ Vladimir Duthiers about the decision to recreate the magic. “We were all ready to do it, we were just waiting to see what the script was,” Midler said. The sequel includes a story about how witches gained their powers, plus new cast members including Sam Richardson, Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham.
