Summary List Placement
While travel is picking up in a big way thanks to vaccine rollouts, early summer travel trends show that vacationers continue to turn to road trips, national park vacations, getaways to remote areas, and unique stays. So, it’s not surprising to learn from the CEO of Airbnb that bookings for stays like Airstreams and tree houses are “booming.”
Not only are tree-house rentals generally more secluded, but they firmly ensconce you within nature by placing your bed amid treetop canopies. Plus, many listed on vacation rental sites come with enchanting and Instagram-worthy interiors like wooden spiral staircases, twinkling lights, and A-frame roofs.
