‘Silence of the Lambs’ home where Buffalo Bill tortured his victims is now a vacation rental

Horror fans and movie buffs may have the perfect place to stay this Halloween: Jame ‘Buffalo Bill’ Gumb’s home from the film Silence of the Lambs. 

The newly renovated Queen Anne Victorian located in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, is now a vacation rental 30 years after it was featured in the 1991 thriller starring Jody Foster, Anthony Hopkins, and Ted Levine.  

Named ‘Buffalo Bill’s House‘ after the fictional serial killer played by Levine, the iconic three-story, four-bedroom home officially opened as a Silence of the Lambs-themed vacation rental on Labor Day weekend.

The property boasts the original door where Foster’s character, FBI Agent Clarice Starling, meets Buffalo Bill for the first time, and it isn’t the only part of the home that is featured in the five-time Academy Award-winning film. 

The exterior, the entry foyer, the dining room, and the kitchen leading to the basement all appear in the end-of-movie showdown between the two.

Chris Rowan, a film art director and prop stylist from New York City, purchased the 2,400-square-foot home for $290,000 after it hit the market last October. 

The horror movie lover restored and upgraded the house while adding artwork, memorabilia, and creepy props that pay homage to Silence of the Lambs.

Built in 1910, the property is located 30 miles south of Pittsburgh and sits on almost two acres. It has ‘retained much of its original charm,’ including the original hardwood floors, woodwork, light fixtures, pocket doors, and fireplaces. 

When guests first walk in, they are greeted by a life-size Hannibal Lecter figure in honor of Hopkins’ cannibalistic character who eats his victims.  

The first floor has a large living room with couches and chairs for lounging and a parlor room with a decorative antique harp and church organ. The home is decorated with ‘period correct’ furniture and glassware for guests to use. 

Hanging on the walls are oil painting portraits of Starling and Buffalo Bill and a number of death’s-head hawkmoths — the insect the serial killer left in the throats of his victims.

‘We have been working hard to create an unforgettable experience for fans. That’s why we decided to offer the house on a private rental basis,’ Rowan said in a statement.

‘We want to give fans access to this unique opportunity to spend a night or two or even a week at Buffalo Bill’s House and live out all of their “Silence” fantasies.’ 

Up to eight guests can stay at the rental at a time, but parties and unauthorized visitors are not allowed. 

The starting price for a group of four people or less is $595 per night. However, renting out the home costs much more on holiday weekends, particularly Halloween. 

The house has a flat rate of $3,495 per night for up to eight guests on October 30 or 31. Both dates are still available at the time of publication. 

Buffalo Bill’s House is currently running a Halloween promotion on its website offering a 13 percent discount to guests who book a stay now through October 31 using the promo code ’13OFFBILLS.’
