If you’re a fan of AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s inaugural season — which revolved almost entirely around the gruesome and haunted history of a notorious “Murder House” and its doomed occupants — you might be excited (and/or horrified) to learn that the real-life mansion used for exteriors of the house in the series (it even came back for a cameo in the most recent season) has recently been offered as a bed-and-breakfast getaway via Airbnb.
According to multiple sources including Variety, the historic Alfred Rosenheim Mansion — which has also appeared in other genre TV series including The Twilight Zone, The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – was recently listed on Airbnb’s for $1450 per night, with nine bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms available to guests.
Built in 1908 in Country Club Park (in a neighborhood nicknamed “Billionaire Row”), the Rosenheim is a significant historical landmark in Los Angeles history. As far as we know, it was not the site of any real-life massacres — unlike the Bailey Mansion in Hartford, Connecticut, the actual “Murder House” on which AHS Season 1 was based — but the Rosenheim may have a haunted legacy of its own.
As of this writing, the Airbnb listing was no longer posted, but this may have been due to an avalanche of inquiries. But you never know if it might pop up again, so keep an eye out in case you want to spend a cozy night with friends, family and maybe a few old-school Hollywood ghosts…
