If you are a fan of American Horror Story then you are familiar with the Murder house from the horror anthology's debut season. We saw the Harmon family move into the creepy ghost-filled mansion and just recently it popped up in important flashbacks connected to this past season, Hotel. If you ever wished to take a tour or a nightly stay in the house, Airbnb must have read your mind because the rental website listed the house just yesterday!

For $1,450 per night, renters could stay in the mansion which includes nine bedroom, four and a half baths, and can accommodate up to 16 people. Hey, that's only around $90 per person, not too bad. No word though if the appearance of Rubber Man is included.

Besides being the setting for season one, the mansion is actually a historical landmark known as the Alfred Rosenheim Mansion. Recognized also as a cultural landmark in Los Angeles, it was built in 1908 and housed many reputable people of the early 1900s. Over the 100 years, it became a hotspot filming location and host to elaborate events. The mansion was also used in countless TV shows, most notably Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, The Twilight Zone, and basically every cop/detective based show from the past few decades. The house had a recording studio which was used often by recording artists and its beautiful interior and exterior was used as the setting for many photo shoots. People say the house had its own personality and with all the different people who have stepped foot through those doors over its 100 year history, who knows what continues to walk through those hallways? The Airbnb posting has disappeared quickly after the original posting, probably due to the volume of traffic it has attracted from fans.

If this isn't enough for you, I did a little digging so you can take an AHS super vacation and check out the mansion used for season 3, Coven. In the show, the mansion was know as "Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies", which housed the coven run by Supreme Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange). The real mansion located in New Orleans' garden district is a 3-story landmark known as the Buckner Mansion. Many of the exterior shots were used at the Buckner Mansion while the interior was used as a model for the sets built for the show. And good news, the mansion has been known to pop up for possible rentals here and there so keep an eye out.

Now if only the Hotel Cortez was real....
