Yesterday was Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birthday, and so it was the perfect occasion for fans to dig up ways to celebrate him.
One such way is to stay in a house where he once lived.
The home he shared with his wife, Zelda, from 1931 to 1932 in Montgomery, Alabama, is now a museum — with two rentable apartments.
The Airbnb listing notes that because it’s a historic home, there are “limitations on modernizing the home with contemporary amenities” — in particular, the bathroom facilities are quite a bit smaller than what we now expect.
But that seems (at least to us) a more than fair tradeoff to stay in the same building where parts of the novels Save Me The Waltz (hers) and Tender Is The Night (his) were written!
