When you were young, there was quite likely a stage where you longed to roam the hundred acre woods with Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin and the gang as you become enthralled by the world created by A.A. Milne.
What if we told you that this is now a real prospect? Still interested? You better be.
Over at Airbnb, you can nab yourself a stay at a true nostalgia trip in the hundred acre woods, in a themed home based on that of the beloved Winnie The Pooh.
Built with the goal of celebrating the 95th anniversary of the children’s tale, the cozy little home takes on the form of just another set of trees in the Ashdown Forest: Milne’s inspiration for the hundred acre wood. Given the stand-up job the creator of the home has pulled off, we think even Pooh may part ways with a jar of his finest Hunny as a thank you for doing the illustrations of E.H. Shepherd justice.
The host of your stay is none other than Kim Raymond, the Disney-appointed Winnie The Pooh illustrator, who has taken on the role of drawing the characters for the past 30 years. He is also behind what you’ll find inside the house, which takes inspiration from the original Shepherd drawings.
Speaking of the home, Raymond said: “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.
