In the wake of furry weather prognosticator Punxsutawney Phil declaring six more weeks of winter, the owners of the bed and breakfast featured in the film "Groundhog Day" have listed the famed property for $985,000.
The Royal Victorian Manor (which assumed the name "Cherry Street Inn" in the 1993 comedy) is actually located not in Punxsutawney, PA but in Woodstock, IL. It covers over 5,800 square feet and includes eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Built in 1894, it served as the "waking" point for Bill Murray's character - who relived February 2nd for an estimated 35-40 years in the movie.
"I may be a biased Groundhog Day fan, and quite overwhelmed by the fact that I was staying in the same building that Phil Connors did, this beautiful Bed and Breakfast would of deserved the same 5 star review regardless," reads one review on the site bedandbreakfast.com. "A truly unique and exquisite way to spend a night in the charming town of Woodstock."
Fans interested in purchasing the Royal Victorian can take heart knowing that it lies only a few blocks from Woodstock Square, which doubled for Punxsutawney, PA during filming.
