Add your trip dates to get the cancellation details for this stay.
Blackburn Manor is the home of Wizarding in the Wild West, an American take on the world of wizarding. It is a functioning boarding house, party venue, magic school, magical mercantile, and marketplace. It is loved for its old but cozy period ambiance, and has a large bunk house for individuals or groups.

There are also variable options for events, gatherings, and experiences, in addition to overnight stays. Message me for more details, or read about it online at wizardinginthewildwest.com

The space
Every room is meticulously designed and furnished. The entire property is dressed to the nines, inside and out. We teach classes, host parties, hold murder mystery dinners, grow vegetables, fruits, and flowers, and sell handmade curios out of our magical mercantile. We have multiple animals. There's a divination classroom, a dining hall, a massive saltwater fish tank, and a sitting area with beautiful geological specimens on display.

The attic bunkhouse has furnished mattresses and multiple hammocks, depending on your sleeping preference and availability. You are renting a bed, rather than a room; be aware you may be sharing the space with others.

Guest access
Guests may access and enjoy virtually the entire property. Multiple common rooms include a dining hall, sitting room, divination class, and a greenhouse. Wander through our many gardens, cemetery, creepy basement, or our magical mercantile store. Roast marshmallows at our multiple fire pits, perform karaoke on our small stage area, knock back a few cold gourmet sodas from our irish pub, or look and/or purchase a variety of homemade products in our outdoor marketplace.

We have more activities and fun to do than you'll have time to try.

Other things to note
This house is 132 years old, and we intentionally showcase it with its original door hardware, claw foot tub, crown moulding, transoms over the doors, and small but creepy root cellar. If a sterile, stale, modern environment is your priority, we recommend going to another Airbnb; our goal is an immersive experience, and have gone to great lengths to provide that.

I'm an artist with an obsession for three dimensional, interactive experiences. I've worked in the film business as a video editor for the past five years. I am a longtime musician with a love for Irish session playing. I'm always on the lookout for "my" people.
