Most of the time, when you’re thinking of where to stay while you’re travelling, you just book a hotel and be done with it. That’s fine sometimes, but recently if I’m planning a weekend stay, we check around for new places to stay! Boutique hotels, cabins, and… B&B’s!
I love Airbnb, it’s super easy to use and tons of fun. It’s really nice when you have large groups, since some hosts offer a whole house to stay in. My favorite houses, though, are where you just rent a room! It’s so fun to meet the hosts, the other people staying there, and learn more about the area! I stayed at an Airbnb in Hawaii, and the hostess made her own delicious tropical jellies and jams for guests to have at breakfast in the morning!
When visiting Great Falls a few weeks ago, we rented a house for myself and Coby, my brother and sister in law, and of course Hazel and Jean! It’s listed on Airbnb as a “Cozy, Relaxing house in quiet neighborhood“. Airbnb has Meghan listed as a superhost also. Let me tell you, these are major understatements! The house itself is super adorable! Once you sit down, it feels like home. It’s beyond welcoming, and of course, cozy! It is a quick drive to pretty much anywhere in Great Falls, and a really cute neighborhood. The best part is, the hosts live just across the street! They’re super sweet, caring, and talking to them even briefly feels like talking to an aunt that you haven’t seen since you were a kid but know they care about you.
Meghan and her husband bought this house in December 2017, and fixed it up to have guests by February 2018! This literally dropped my jaw, I can’t believe they have only been hosts since February and the house is this wonderful that I’m writing about it! Right now, it is their only Airbnb rental property, but personally I think they could have a whole Airbnb empire! I asked Meghan what her favorite part of being an Airbnb host, and she replied “I just love creating a space that people can come, relax, and feel at home in, the decorating, the extra little personal touches that I know will make the guests feel pampered and like they are on vacation!”. Tell ya what Meghan, you succeeded in all of that!
