KUSA - There is no better way to spend Halloween than nestled away in creepy castle with an equally creepy history, right?
Airbnb, the network that allows people to list or rent short-term lodging in residential properties, is giving away a chance to stay at Dracula's castle in Transylvania on Halloween.
Hosting the winner's stay is Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker's great grand-nephew.
Bran Castle is the actual name of Dracula's castle. Its history goes back to the 14th century.
The castle is most well-known, of course, as the inspiration for Count Dracula's castle in Stoker's novel.
Winners will be flown to Romania to visit the castle.
They will have a candlelit dinner that is prepared exactly like one in the novel.
Winners can then explore various parts of the castle before going to sleep in velvet-lined coffins that Count Dracula has "generously" allowed use of.
Some house rules as specified by the Count include: no garlic or garlic-scented items, no silver jewelry, no mirror selfies and curtains must be closed before sunrise.
To enter, write a 50 to 500 character answer to this question "What would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his castle?"
