Vacasa currently offers the ultimate stay for your family travels. Guests can now stay in the Ghostbusters Firehouse in Portland, Oregon. In collaboration with Sony Pictures, Vacasa created an immersive recreation of where the Ghostbusters first studied and held the spooky spirits.

The private, two-bedroom, three-story firehouse was built in the early 1900s and includes all the comforts of home, with a full kitchen, multiple living areas and endless Ghostbusters features. Check out the scientist-approved Ghost Containment System and Dark Room where you can develop and analyze photos of the Scourge of Carpathia. The beds are freshly made, the Ectoplasm expertly cleaned up and the pantry stocked with Stay Puft marshmallows and cheesy crackers.

All of Egon’s essentials, including the smoking Ghost Traps, a P.K.E. Meter, Proton Packs, Aura Video-Analyzer and even the Ecto-Containment Unit, are featured in the firehouse, so guests have everything they need to hunt and catch ghosts. In addition to fully stocked shelves with ghost gadgets and ready-to-wear flight suits, the station also features Janine’s desk with the ringing phone and ominous seven-foot Vigo painting watching from the wall.


Although Vacasa currently only offers a 3-D tour of the property, it’s one you won’t want to miss.
