We need a change in scenery. Unfortunately, none of us will be hopping on a plane and jet setting overseas anytime soon. A staycation is the answer, but you shouldn’t check in to just any ol’ Inn, bed and breakfast or luxe hotel. Escape, relax and experience your own province in style! Here are 5 of the most unique Airbnb’s in Alberta.
Live like royalty for a few days in this haunting castle on ghost lake. This incredible spot is an insane 6 bedroom monster with a capacity of 16 people. Start your morning on the full-sized tennis courts, then go for a dip in the saltwater swimming pool, or curl up with a book in the grand library. Tiara and red velvet robe not included.
Where: Rocky View County, Alberta
Well chat with a monkey and call us Tarzan! This mountain escape is nestled in amongst the trees, well above the ground. It’s incredibly private, includes a rock sauna, sleeps 6, and has a fire pit, BBQ and additional space for activities or tenting.
Where: Kehewin, Alberta
Everyone wants to say they like camping, but we all know that setting up, sleeping and changing in a tent is the pits. This quaint Airbnb is just as ‘earthy chic’ as it is cozy and relaxing. It sleeps two, includes a propane stove for cooking, pots pans and a hammock…. nothing says ‘vacation’ like a hammock.
Where: Banff, Alberta
We’re not going to lie, this spot has inspired us to buy a camper, hit the road and never look back. The incredible 8 person trailer set up for visitors is Pinterest realized, tried, tested and approved. There’s a shower, a flushing toilet, fridge freezer, everything you need to cook a good meal and has an unbelievable view. Colour us impressed.
Where: Leavitt, Alberta
…. Dome home… Satisfying isn’t it? Saying it out loud is almost as much fun as you’ll have here. This two-guest getaway has 48 windows (so we hope you don’t value your privacy,) a sauna, valley view and is only minutes away from the Spruce Meadows golf course. Also, it’s entirely powered by the sun, so that’s pretty cool.
Where: Sexsmith, Alberta
