Reroute your owls to deliver The Daily Prophet to your new address because you’ll never want to leave this Harry Potter rental. Located in Salem, MA, this private room can fit two guests, and ideally those who can revel in the extra attention to detail.

Just one mile from the train station, this room was crafted by a host with experience in the toy and games industry. Potterheads will feel as if Newt Scamander left his suitcase open again, as Bowtruckles and Nifflers and Demiguises will welcome you upon arrival. You may find a Cornish Pixie or two hanging around, too!

But first, enter via the phone booth a la King’s Cross to find a king size bed as comfortable as the Gryffindor common room. Hogwarts and Ilvermony students alike (or those still awaiting their letters) will be able to enjoy the daily breakfast options in Mr. Weasley’s breakfast nook. Just be sure to follow all the rules, as Educational Decree notices from Professor Umbridge loom over the space. Tea is served daily at 4 p.m., though certainly without Umbridge’s signature pink sugar—or regular dose of veritaserum—so you’ll be safe to sip as you please.

If you feel like imbibing further on your stay, the space is close to three local breweries and boasts its 420 friendliness, as cannabis is legal in Massachusetts. Other local haunts include lobster and clam fry restaurants along the coast, an old-fashioned arcade with a 100-year-old popcorn machine, and sailing trips around the harbor.

There’s free street parking, for cars or brooms, if you choose not to apparate or travel by Floo network. Additionally, a garden in the backyard provides a pleasant ambiance (free of gnomes, unlike the Weasley’s burrow). Rooms are $70 a night, so let the Globbins at Gringotts know you’ll be taking out some galleons soon.
