Haven't you always wanted to try sleeping in an airstream, or looking up at the stars through the roof of your yurt tent? This list of Airbnbs includes everything, from the super outdoorsy off-the-grid spots to adorable mini-cabins that look great on Instagram. Grab your best friend, your S/O or even your whole squad and take an unforgettable mini-vacation together.
