'Tis the spooky season, and a stay at the Hocus Pocus Airbnb is a great way to ring in the celebration. 

One of the best Halloween movies out there is not only gearing up for its long-awaited sequel, Hocus Pocus 2, but it's also offering fans a chance to live like Winifred, Mary and Sarah for a few days. 

"We all know that the Sanderson Sisters' story might not have ended when we turned to dust, nor did our shenanigans," said Kathy Najimy (Mary Sanderson). "What better way to celebrate the season than to host guests at the trio’s historic haunt for a night they'll remember for years to come?"

Pack your weekend bags and venture to Salem, Massachusetts, for a getaway unlike any other.

'Hocus Pocus' Airbnb

According to Airbnb, the iconic and spooky trio will host the timeworn cottage for an exclusive stay on October 20 for two guests at $31 per night in celebration of All Hallows’ Eve.

Tucked away in the woods on the outskirts of Salem, the spooky cottage has been recreated for those brave enough to make themselves comfy in the eerie abode. In addition to living like our favorite witches, guests will be able to tour the best sites in Salem, flip through the cottage's ancient spellbook and enjoy a screening of Hocus Pocus 2. 

Per the Sanderson sisters' description, "the 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."

(There's adequate parking for those traveling in by broomstick, FYI.)

How to book the 'Hocus Pocus' Airbnb

No doubt, vacationers everywhere will be running amuck attempting to secure their stay. Here's what you need to know: 

On October 12 at 1pm ET, booking will open for the cottage on Airbnb (opens in new tab) for the one-night stay on October 20 for $31. A one-time donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem will be made on the vacationers' behalf. Covid-19 protocols will be in place, and a socially distanced on-site concierge will give you the lay of the land and help you arrange meals. Do be aware that a modern outhouse is "steps from the home."

Before booking gets underway, we suggest you burn a new favorite from the 2022 Yankee Candle Halloween collection and rewatch the classic film with your coven.
