If you haven’t heard of AirBnB, you are going to be glad you clicked on this post. Airbnb is a place where travellers can book a space from hosts, connecting people who have a space to spare with those looking for a place to stay. Ever since our discovery of this site we use it to find places to stay all over the world, most of the time at a much cheaper price then the surrounding hotels. Even better is that Airbnb can allow for some pretty unique places to stay just to add to your travel experience.

Here are just a few places we have bookmarked of spectacular and bizarre Airbnb rentals we are dying to stay at.

22. Yellowstone Tipi

Only minutes from the Yellowstone National Park, spend the night surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of nature inside your very own tipi.
