If Winnie the Pooh was one of your favorites growing up, here’s your chance to live at a replica of the storied bear’s treehouse.
It is being made possible by Pooh illustrator Kim Raymond who is hosting two one-night stays at the “Bearbnb,” custom-built at the real site that inspired the fictional Hundred Acre Wood in England. Raymond is hosting this to celebrate the 95th anniversary of Pooh’s creation by writer A. A. Milne.
“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,” Raymond said.
The unique house is a one-room that looks like it is built into a tree, complete with the iconic Mr. Sanders sign above the door on the outside and “Hunny pots” in the cupboard inside.
If you choose to stay you will also be taken on a tour of the area in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex that was the inspiration for books’ wood setting, and your stay also includes playing “Poohsticks” on Poohsticks Bridge and “Hunny-inspired meals.”
Raymond, who illustrated Winnie the Pooh for 30 years, said he was inspired by the original depictions in the books by E. H. Shepard in designing the house and its interior.
The Pooh-inspired home sleeps four people, with a double bed and two smaller loft beds above it, as per the listing.
Make note the house will be for rent on September 24 and 25 for about $130 (AED477) per night.
