You Can Now Rent H.P. Lovecraft's Old Apartment

Illustration for article titled You Can Now Rent H.P. Lovecrafts Old Apartment

Are you an H.P. Lovecraft aficionado? Like weird horror? Don’t mind odd squeaks and *probably* a ghost or two? You can now rent the author’s former home in Providence, Rhode Island.


The one-bedroom studio apartment was home to the author in April 1926 to May 1933, according to the ad, which helpfully includes a couple of lines from Lovecraft’s letters:

As for the place—I have a fine large ground-floor room (a former
dining room with fireplace) and kitchenette alcove in a spacious
brown Victorian wooden house at the 1880 period—a house,
curiously enough, built by some friends of my own family, now
long dead.

Letter to Frank Belknap Long, 1 May 1926

There’s no mention of unmentionable horrors from beyond, but it might be worth asking up on.
