A spooky Airbnb listing is inviting guests to be “the mayor of Hell” this Halloween season and spend the night in a setting straight out of a horror film.

Located in Hell, Mich., an unincorporated community about 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor, this Airbnb host will have you crossing over the gates of hell — literally — as you journey to a spooky-themed destination for an overnight stay. `A pumpkin-lit pathway leads to a tiny, wooden, Gothic-style house owned by John Colone, the self-proclaimed mayor of Hell.

“I’m excited to welcome you to my little slice of ‘paradise,’ where you’ll lord over the ghouls and goblins that call this haunted inferno home,” the listing reads. “Ever been to Hell and back? Now’s your chance. This month, I’m handing over the keys to the Gates of Hell and appointing you mayor for the night.”

Limited to two guests, the one-bed, one-bath house isn’t big on space, but has plenty of character. And at just $31 per night, it’s budget-friendly, and comes equipped with Wi-Fi, free parking, a fireplace and complimentary breakfast.

A cozy outdoor fire pit is perfect for curling up under a blanket, or carving a pumpkin. There’s even an outdoor movie screen for watching your favorite thriller under the stars.

Beyond the goosebumps, there’s a good cause: In a celebration of the Halloween-enthusiastic community, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to North Star Reach, a local nonprofit organization that provides free camp experiences for children with significant health challenges and their families.

Booking opens on Oct. 14 for three different stays this month, if you’re interested in spending the night hiding under the covers. Unfortunately, out-of-staters will have to sit this one out: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it’s only open to Michigan residents who come from the same household.
