This Harry Potter Airbnb will transport you to the Quidditch World Cup

It doesn't sleep an entire army like the tent that Arthur Weasley borrowed, but it does sleep four.

Stay at Alchemy, a Harry Potter-inspired Airbnb rental for $225/night

As the "Harry Potter" friend in every single friend group, I usually have my eyes peeled for all things Potter. While lazily scrolling TikTok this morning, I landed on a video with over seven million views of a Harry Potter Airbnb — which also happens to be the Airbnb every Potterhead dreams of staying at.

Rather than hiding across the pond, this Airbnb is just 10 minutes north of downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The rental is called "Alchemy" and it is one of seven themed rental units run by Treehouses of Serenity. Instead of recreating Hogwarts, this rental is inspired by the magical tent that Harry, Hermione, and the Weasley family stayed at during the Quidditch World Cup in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." It doesn't sleep an entire army like the tent that Arthur Weasley borrowed, but it does sleep four.

Alchemy features some very unique offerings for a rental, including: 

  • 12-ft spiral slide
  • 1 Queen Bed & 1 futon including linens
  • Private Secondary Glamping Tent
  • WiFi
  • Coffee Maker, 2-burner electric cooktop, electric indoor grill
  • Roku TV
  • Kitchenette
  • Conventional Bathroom
  • Private Firepit
The Airbnb listing describes this rental's outdoor set up as, the "best sitting area ever"! And adds, "Our firepit will provide hours of nighttime conversation while enjoying smores!"

The property listing describes the name behind the rental:

"Alchemy" is defined as "the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained." As you drive up to our structure, all you see awaiting you is a small tent, but pull back the tent flaps and the magic begins. Entering carefully through a small doorway, you will immediately be welcomed by a 12-foot spiral slide that will carry you down to the essence of Alchemy. Coming off your exhilarating slide journey, you will be greeted by majestic mountain views and an amazing interior filled with secrets waiting to be discovered!

If you don't want to slide down with your suitcase (muggle), you can use the normal entrance to the property, which is hidden but easily accessible using a pathway. The rental has a shower, queen-size bed, and a fold-out futon. The living area is described as "small."

It also has an excellent outdoor space equally magical in the description: When you walk out of the treehouse, you'll find another tent, called Enchantment. It has a fire pit where you can sit outside for hours enjoying each other's conversation and some s'mores.

The nightly rate for Alchemy previously was $225, but due to popularity, it is now $352/night. As with all Airbnb rentals, there's an additional service fee (about $250 total for five nights) and a cleaning fee ($54).

Treehouses of Serenity have a second Harry Potter-inspired rental, called Wizard's Hollow

It doesn't have a spiral slide entry, but Wizard's Hollow does look like a miniature Hogwarts castle nestled among the mountains of Asheville. Availability for 2022 is slim pickings, with dates booked up until November. However, there are many December dates still open to book.
