Now that travel restrictions are starting to lift a bit, we can look forward to more vacations or staycations.
When going out of town, booking a place to stay has been revolutionized by Airbnb. It makes finding a place to stay in your chosen destination that bit easier. Not to mention, a lot of Airbnbs have a much more relaxed and cozy feel rather than staying in a hotel.
But one of the things about Airbnbs is that their owners can personalize them to suit a certain aesthetic or theme – and many of them are pretty cool.
There is one very cute and custom-built Airbnb that looks like Winnie the Pooh’s Tree House.
The “Bearbnb” as it’s called, opened up in England and offers its guests a literary-inspired stay. The Airbnb is run by Kim Raymond, a Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator who is quite familiar with Winnie the Pooh, as she’s been drawing the bear for over 30 years!
Kim is hosting the Airbnb stay as part of Disney’s 95th-anniversary celebrations.
The reservations were for the weekend of September 24 and 25th. Needless to say, those dates were quickly reserved. If you’re looking to stay at the rental sometime in the future, you should know that for now, the Airbnb is only available to current United Kingdom residents.
Check out some of the photos from the inside:
The Airbnb is a treehouse that was made to accommodate four guests traveling to the Ashdown Forest – a location that inspired the Hundred Acre Woods where Winnie the Pooh and his friends live.
In order to bring the treehouse to life, Kim worked alongside a team of experts to create the design. It features some major cottagecore aesthetic as well. Overall, with its design and execution, it definitely makes for an interesting stay.
In a statement, Kim said, “The ‘Bearbnb’ is a unique experience that brings the charm of Pooh to life for fans, whilst honoring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years.”
The treehouse features a double bed on the ground floor, with single beds up on a mezzanine level which can be accessed by some timber ladders. The cottage Airbnb rents for $124 per night and you can check it out here.SKM: below-content placeholder
