There’s still time for you to live like Ralphie Parker at the Christmas Story House & Museum.
The cinematic tourist destination is available for overnight stays on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, according to Brian Jones – the museum’s owner.
Fans who wish to stay at the home that starred in the 1983 holiday classic, "A Christmas Story," will have to travel to Cleveland if they’re looking to snap photos of a "fragile" leg lamp or BB gun and drink their fill of Ovaltine.
Holiday bookings require a minimum two-night stay, which costs $3,995 per night. Up to six guests get to stay at the Christmas Story House’s private third-floor loft where there are replicas of the Parkers bedrooms. The loft also includes a living room, a queen-sized sleeper sofa, a full kitchen and a full bathroom.
After the museum closes at 9 p.m., guests are allowed to roam the rest of the three-story home for the duration of their stay. The lower-level museum areas are filled with props and posters from the Christmas movie, including the Red Ryder BB Gun that Ralphie constantly spoke about in the film.
So far, the Christmas Story House is available over the Christmas holiday, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Nightly rates vary depending on the day you book this 19th-century Victorian home.
If you miss your chance to snag an overnight stay at the Christmas Story House, Jones has a few other movie-themed accommodations based on the Christmas classic.
Guests can book a stay at the neighboring Bumpus House – the fictional home to the Parkers’ "hillbilly" neighbors. Inside the home is a first-floor Hound Dog Haven Suite ($695) and a second-floor Stolen Turkey Suite ($995) that are priced at $695 and $995, respectively, over the Christmas holiday.
Check-in times are at 3 p.m. and check-out times are at 11 a.m. Reservations can be made on AChristmasStoryHouse.com.
