If you can’t afford the usual asking rent of $20,000 a month but still want to live out your Wes Anderson dreams, the owner of the house is offering one booking for a two-night stay over Memorial Day weekend.


Whoever’s fastest at bookings, which open at noon Eastern on May 26, will snag a two-night stay for $20 per night in the brownstone in New York City’s Hamilton Heights.

This is the only available booking for the home on Airbnb, so whoever gets it will have the unique experience of staying in the Charles H. Tuttle Mansion, which was built in 1899, at a steep discount.

The home was the backdrop for “The Royal Tenenbaums,” released in 2001. Directed by Wes Anderson, the film starred Gwyneth Paltrow, Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller, and other stars. The Tenenbaum family reunited in their home, for which the brownstone served as the primary set.
