Ever stayed at an Airbnb?

My in-laws have an Airbnb in Yakima and so does my wife's best friend.  They are both quite successful.

Airbnb Family Fun

My family rented one at the gateway to Mt Rainier for New Year's Eve and we had a blast.  It was a great big cabin with lots of room for 4 kids, 7 adults, and a dog with a cozy woodstove, log cabin charm, wildlife in the backyard, and more. 

We have many great memories that staying at a hotel or motel could never provide. I think we spent a little over $500 a night for three nights and divided between 3 families it was pretty affordable.

NOT all Airbnb's are that easy on the wallet and that's the point of this post. What are the most expensive Airbnbs in the Pacific Northwest and in the Country?

Washington's Big Ticket Airbnb

In Washington State, Port Angeles owns the distinction of being home to the Evergreen Lady's priciest Airbnb - according to a survey by online home decor retailer Joybird.

The cost of a three-day stay at the Sunny Lake Sutherland Cabin in Port Angeles is $10,112. Featuring 1 bedroom, 5 beds, and 1.5 baths for 6 guests.

Premium, rare & private lakefront cabin is 10 feet from the water's edge facing the southern sky for maximum warmth, sun potential, and spectacular view, 2 large decks between the cabin and water allow maximum use and benefit of the sun and lake water activities. The shore's water & sand are crystal clean & private.

That's significant but it's chump change compared to Idaho's most expensive weekend getaway.

On the flip side, the least expensive Airbnb on the survey costs $3,305 which will buy you 3 nights at a house in Fargo, North Dakota, 1,383 miles due east of Yakima  (21 hours by car), and NO PARTIES!
