Evil Dead Cabin Vacation Rental?
 
Hello to all!

I was recently vacationing with my family and I stumbled across an old cabin for sale by owner surrounded by thousands of acres of mountains and woods. I called the number and the owner agreed to meet me at the cabin so I could take a look at it.

When I pulled down the old gated dirt driveway I was shocked to see a cabin that looked almost identical to the cabin from The Evil Dead. Now maybe I'm a little biased because of my affinity for horror movies, but that was all I could think about as we took a look at it. It's a neat log cabin nonetheless, a woodstove/fireplace, 3 beds/bedrooms, electric, no running water, outhouse, etc. Unfortunately no old book or tape recorder.

I am very interested in purchasing this cabin for personal use for my family and I, but I am not sure whether it would be worth it to own a cabin that I would really only make use of 15-20 times a year. Then I had the thought of renting it out on weekends/weeks throughout the spring/summer/fall. But I don't really like the idea of being the manager of a rental vacation property for total strangers either. But from my experience with fellow horror movie people, they don't feel like total strangers.

My question is this; would a Evil Dead Cabin vacation rental be something that would interest anyone here? I would prepare the cabin in the most Evil Dead manner I could, get a Necronomicon and an old tape recorder with pre-recorded incantations, decorate the cabin as closely to the movie as possible, come up with additional awesome things to help fit the mood too (fog machine, outdoor speakers, I don't know). It would be part haunted attraction (kinda) part actual vacation cabin. From a traditional vacation standpoint, the cabin is 300 yards away from a State Park with a huge recreational lake (swiming, boating, fishing) and tons of hiking trails, and its a real beautiful location. PLUS it is almost completely cut-off, no internet, no cell phone service, no phone lines. This would be a mid-atlantic/east coast cabin.

I'm not looking for bookings or anything I am trying to gauge interest in something like this.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

I think most horror fans, Evil Dead fans in particular, would be interested in this

Might take a bit to catch on but I could see it.

Do you think that not having running water could be a deal breaker for some? Do you think that something like this would be the kind of attraction that people would want to visit but not necessarily want to spend the night at?

I currently run a campground near Burkittsville MD and every once and awhile we get "blair witch" hunters here, but not as many as you would think. I realize The Evil Dead is a significantly more iconic movie than BW though.

Alot of ed fans are probably on the mature side. We like our creature comforts lol. Off the gridders would like that.

Maybe that's the point.
