For horror fans who are looking to take their passion for the genre to the next level, there has never been a better outlet than the brand new hotel in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.
The same house owned by the notorious Buffalo Bill in Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs has been converted into a four-bedroom, one-bathroom boutique accommodation, with the owners of the house staying true to the design of the original film set. Remaining largely untouched, even using the very same front door featured in the terrifying film, homeowner Chris Rowan has added flourishes of his own throughout the house. “There are the ‘Hannibal’ and ‘Clarice’ rooms, and of course, the ‘Precious’ room, which features twin beds, perfect for families visiting with children,” the listing for the hotel reads.
Continuing, Chris Rowan states, “We have been working hard to create an unforgettable experience for fans…That’s why we decided to offer the house on a private rental basis. In other words, you and your booked group alone, will have exclusive access to the house during your stay”. He also adds that, “We want to give fans access to this unique opportunity to spend a night or two or even a week at Buffalo Bill’s House and live out all of their ‘Silence’ fantasies”.
Whilst much of the original house stays true to the original horror-thriller, including the disturbing basement featuring several defaced mannequins, Rowan has converted the attic into “Buffalo Bill’s Playhouse,” complete with retro arcade games and a lounge area.
Bookings at Buffalo Bill’s House are now open but don’t come cheap, with rates starting at $695 a night, with Halloween weekend prices surging to $3,995 a night.
