Airstreams, Treehouses and Tugboats…Your Next Getaway?

intBy: Kate Donnelly

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to get away to Asheville, NC on a weekend trip to do some hiking and take in the beautiful fall colors. Instead of going the traditional hotel route, I decided to embark on my very first Airbnb adventure, and rented a vintage airstream trailer. My tiny weekend abode was full of character and genius ways of utilizing space. The trip convinced me that from here onward, I will look for quirky, fun, unique places to stay wherever we go. Perusing the website gave me hundreds of ideas for future vacations. Check out some of these inspiring rentals:

I was pleasantly surprised to find this treehouse oasis was right in our backyard. Located in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, this retreat can make you feel like you’re living in a Swiss Family Robinson fantasy.

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to stay on a tugboat for the night? Me neither…but this listing for a tugboat house on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon looks like an awesome place to stay.

After staying in an Airstream this weekend, I’ve become fascinated with them. I love the retro look of this Vintage Airstream Trailer outside of Austin, TX. With a kitchen, private deck, and hot tub, this silver bullet looks like a little slice of paradise. The decor suits this airstream perfectly – bright and cheery, just like I would be if I woke up here!

Whether across the country or, in our case, a few hours down the road, we hope that we’ve given you some inspiration for your next weekend getaway.
