Fans of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh can make their childhood dreams come true and experience what it’s like to live in the Hundred Acre Wood.

Airbnb has unveiled a replica of the charming inspired tree house inhabited by the loveable bear as part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations. 

The custom-built Bearbnb inspired by A.A. Milne’s original tales of Christopher Robin and friends in the Hundred Acre Wood is situated in Ashdown Forest in England.

With two separate stays available, the Bearbnb sleeps up to four guests at a time, with a double bed and two smaller loft beds above it.

The charming place gives fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and friends.

The unique Airbnb stay is hosted by Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator, Kim Raymond, who curated the Bearbnb and has been drawing the iconic bear for the past three decades.

“I have been illustrating Winnie the Pooh for 30 years and I continue to be inspired by the classic decorations of E.H. Shepard and the more recent Disney stories. The ‘Bearbnb’ is a unique experience that brings the charm of Pooh to life for fans, whilst honoring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years,” Raymond said in an Airbnb release.

The tree house comes with lovely details as seen in the classic children's story books and Disney cartoons, such as exposed tree branches wrapped around the doorway with “Mr. Sanders” inscribed above, bespoke wallpaper designed by host Kim Raymond and shelves stocked full of “hunny” in the kitchen cupboards when they stay in the property.

The stay also includes a tour of the area in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex that was the inspiration for the books' wood setting, playing “poohstick” on Poohsticks Bridge and locally sourced “hunny-inspired meals,” according to the Airbnb listing.

Strictly no heffalumps will be allowed inside the property, according to the house rules.

Pooh's tree house will be for rent for only two nights on Sept. 24 and 25 and will cost about $130 per night. Airbnb reviews will be used in considering the renters for each night.

Unfortunately, only UK residents will be eligible to book the property, starting Sept. 20, according to the release. TTFN.
