The Sanderson sisters are back, and now you can stay in their spooky Massachusetts farmhouse from the popular 1993 movie “Hocus Pocus.” The sequel to the film was released this week and to celebrate, Airbnb offers a stay in a recreation of the house where the three main witch characters lived.
In the first film, the Sanderson sisters, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, live in an old house that has been frozen in time for 300 years. Airbnb has recreated the cabin in the remote woods of Danvers, Massachusetts, and is offering an exclusive stay to the first to book the property.
The stay is not a contest, but only two guests can enjoy the Airbnb on October 20 for only $31. Guests can explore nearby Salem, where the film is set, explore the magic of the cottage, including the film’s Manual of Witchcraft and Alchemy, and get an exclusive screening of “Hocus Pocus 2.”
The cabin includes broomsticks, apothecary bottles, and the Black Flame candle and cauldron from the movie.
Booking for the creepy Airbnb opens on October 12. Airbnb is also making a donation to Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salemwhose goal is to help youth in the community succeed.
Midler, Parker and Najimy returned for the sequel and spoke with Vladimir Duthiers of CBS News about the decision to recreate the magic. “We were all up for it, we were just waiting to see what the script was,” Midler said. The sequel includes a backstory on how the witches got their powers, as well as new cast members including Sam Richardson, Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham.
