Airbnb is hosting a contest whereby two lucky winners will be chosen to spend the night at Bran Castle on Halloween night. The two guests will enjoy dinner and wine before retiring to their red velvet-trimmed coffins, according to the Associated Press. But don’t worry — if coffins are a bit too literal for you, you also have the option to sleep in a bed.

Applicants were asked to imagine what they would say to Count Dracula if they had the opportunity to meet the ‘man’ himself.

The winners will be flown to Romania and taken to the castle in the Carpathian Mountains, which hosts about 630,000 visitors annually.

Naturally, there are some ground rules for your stay in the creepy castle. There can be no garlic or silver jewelry with the notation that “The count is not a fan of mirror selfies.” Also, no crosses are allowed and all curtains need to be closed before sunrise, according to the contest rules.

Deadline to enter is Oct. 26 at 11:59 p.m. CET.

Last year, Airbnb hosted a similar contest, to spend the night in the catacombs of Paris.
