“I brought Pooh’s house to life taking inspiration from the original decorations of E.H. Shepard,” wrote Raymond on his Disney-sponsored Airbnb listing.

Located in the Ashdown Forest in Nutley, England, which was the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood, the fictional land where Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends live, and the memorial ground for creator Alan Alexander Milne who died in 1956.

“I have been working with a team of experts to bring Winnie-the-Pooh’s ‘Tree House,’ as depicted in the classic A.A. Milne tales, to life … as part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations of the lovable children’s character,” wrote Raymond.

Original decorations from the book are present inside the cottage, including Pooh Bear’s signature hunny pots.

Booking for the house begins Sept. 20, for $105 a night.
