These Airbnbs come in a little higher when compared to the average booking, but for a one time (well deserved) weekend away, the stunning views make it well worth it

Whether you are considering making those plans for the upcoming long weekend or you’re looking to add more places to your staycation tab(or tabs if you can’t seem to get off the app), Airbnb is where fantasy meets reality - depending on the price range of course. The upside of booking an Airbnb stay is that the access to an entire property makes you truly feel at home, even if you’re wilding it out in the mountains or just feel like completely going off the grid for a few days.

These places are high in demand, so you may want to plan ahead to book your stay. Time to unwind and unplug.
