Residents of Hell, Michigan, might regret their town’s name 364 days of the year, but on Halloween everything kind of falls into place. This Halloween, the self-proclaimed mayor of Hell, John Colone, is listing his gothic cabin on Airbnb, allowing guests to preside over Hell with a night in the Mayor’s Lair.
“I am the biggest Halloween fan in the world (and the underworld),” says Colone, “so I hope that our little slice of paradise can fill fellow Halloween lovers with all of the frightful chills and spooky sensations of the season. And to our guests and soon-to-be Mayors, I trust you’ll find that there is no place more welcoming than Hell on Earth — we can’t wait to show you a helluva good time!”
The Mayor’s Lair will be rentable on Airbnb, equipped with a gothic sitting room, outdoor movie screen, fire pit, and pumpkins ripe for carving. While exploring the town you’ll also find the Hell Hole Diner, spooky hiking trails, the Locks of Love Bridge, and a mini golf course.
Booking will be available starting October 14 at 12:00 PM ET on Airbnb, for three one-night reservations on October 18, 21, and 24. Each night will fittingly cost $31 (plus taxes and fees). To celebrate Hell and its community, Airbnb will make a donation to a place special to Colone, North Star Reach, an accessible medical specialty camp that provides camp experiences for children living in the Great Lakes region with health challenges.
Note that those who wish to book a night in Hell need to be Michigan residents and from the same household.
