The Coolest Airbnbs in the United States to Visit in 2021

The Coolest Airbnbs in the United States
Hey there! Please make sure to follow all local guidelines and regulations as it relates to travel during these times. We'll be here to inspire your travels when you feel safe to do so. Also: We are part of several affiliate programs including Airbnb Associates, which means that we may receive commissions for purchases made through links in this post (at no additional cost to you). This allows us to continue bringing free, valuable content your way.

Every year I curate a list of unique Airbnbs that are inspiring me to travel to new places, and I’m excited to continue the tradition this year with a list that’s a bit different. As sustainable travel becomes a bigger and more important topic and travel is more restricted this year, I’ve focused on Airbnb experiences that are a bit closer to home for my US readers — and trust me, they are stunning. I did a lot of digging to find the most exceptional homes and I think these truly are the coolest Airbnbs in the United States.

From A-Frame cabins and retro airstream trailers to treehouse escapes, architectural gems and so much more, each has its own unique elements to gush over. There’s even a converted WWII train in the mix. So cool, right?!

I hope these creative Airbnb stays will inspire you to think outside the box for 2020 travels and beyond. I’m not saying you should stop dreaming up those African safaris and romantic tropical getaways. But if you’re looking for something special for a quicker weekend escape, these awesome US-based Airbnbs should make for a memorable domestic adventure.
