Hell is a small town in Michigan where you can enjoy Halloween festivities in the spooky Mayor's Lair with overnight stays in October. The Mayor's Lair is a Gothic-style home where you'll be treated to movie screenings, outdoor fire pits, pumpkin carvings and great coffee - heavenly to taste and strong enough to wake the dead, we're told. For once we'd be quite happy to 'go to Hell'.
John Colone, the self-proclaimed mayor of the town of Hell is keeping the spirit of Halloween alive by opening his spooky house to guests for overnight stays in October. Known as the Mayor's Lair, the Airbnb accommodation with its Gothic-style decor is the ideal place for Halloween thrills. Thankfully, there are no phenomena like rattling doors, flickering lights and unexplained voices to keep you up at night. Instead, you'll enjoy cosy Halloween traditions like pumpkin carvings, watching a scary movie on the outdoor screen or sharing ghost stories under the stars by the fire pit.
