How to stay in a real-life Grinch’s cave with green furry slippers, ‘Roast Beast’

Calling all the Whos!

Here is your chance to stay in the Grinch’s very own cave for Christmas.

Perched high up on a mountain in Boulder, Utah, is a 5,700-square-foot lair guests can explore.

Each room is a nod to the Grinch’s original home from the iconic Dr. Seuss book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” — and the TV and film incarnations it inspired.

The 1957 book about a grumpy hermit who lives on the outskirts of town — where he hatches a plan to steal Christmas from the Whos of Whoville — has spawned, most notably, a classic 1966 TV special and Ron Howard’s 2000 feature film starring Jim Carrey and Taylor Momsen.

The residence, hand-carved on the side of a massive stone mountain, will be available to rent between Dec. 13 and 27 at only $19.57 a night, a nod to the year the book was first released.

This very specific tourist attraction includes the famous music room — complete with the Grinch’s organ and his dog Max’s drum set.
