Harry Potter Airbnb — Asheville, North Carolina

by AnaMaria Glavan

Although the Quidditch World Cup is a fictional sporting event, you can still pretend to root for Viktor Krum. How? A magical Airbnb located in Asheville, North Carolina.

Tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains lies an unassuming tent that, when unzipped, reveals an entirely different world. It’s one of seven properties in a community called the “Treehouses of Serenity.” Open a small door, take the 12-foot spiral slide, and enter a Harry Potter universe. 

Inspired by the campground where Harry, Hermione, and Ron stayed during the Quidditch World Cup in The Goblet of Fire, this Airbnb is small but packed with detail.

The Airbnb (named “The Alchemy”) is filled with sorting hats and Tri-Wizard trophies, house robes and themed coloring books, Golden Snitch accent lighting and dragonfly keys. The walls are decked out in intentionally mismatched tapestries and the viral Black House family tree wallpaper. Not to mention the layers upon layers of intricate carpets, the faux fireplace, and scattered leather chairs, a trifecta that makes you feel as if you’re sipping morning coffee in the Gryffindor common room.  Oversized windows also provide stunning mountain views.

You’ll also find a separate “glamping” tent perfect for reading and relaxing, a firepit for midnight s’mores, and several accessible hikes. Helpfully, snacks, coffee, tea, and cooking supplies are provided, as the property is very remote… it is called  “treehouses of serenity,” after all.

Rates start at $396 per night and we recommend booking far in advance. The room comfortably holds four people (there’s a queen bed and fold-out velvet futon), and while the slide is fun, there’s also a conventional entrance located at the back of the property. It’s roughly a 20-minute drive from Asheville Regional Airport; since the property is not on GPS, you’ll be given an approximate address and detailed driving instructions that are easy to follow. 

Any Airbnb can be booked through the Klarna app and split into four payments.
