Chic Container Home

This might just be a “me” thing but I’m kind of obsessed with tiny homes and shipping container homes. They’re just so cool and sleek!

This chic home, is located in Millersburg, the heart of Amish country, and is the perfect base for a weekend getaway. The wooded views give this AirBNB a private, outdoorsy feel while the modern decor keeps things luxe.

Cozy Cave House

This second home is located in another popular Ohio weekend getaway spot, Hocking Hills State Park. And once again, this property nails the luxe yet natural vibe. What cooler digs to come back to after a day of hiking!

Lake Front Legend

Maybe a water view is more your thing? If so, look no further than this lakefront glass house designed by an associate of Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s decorated in a mid-century modern style and the large windows boast fantastic views of both the lake and Sandusky Bay.

With five bedrooms, this property is a great option for larger groups or families. Another bonus? Close access to Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores!

Homey Houseboat

If you love the idea of being on the lake but are traveling as a couple or small family, check out this awesome houseboat in Port Clinton. How could you not feel relaxed while watching the sunset from the rear deck? Not to mention the fact that you’re within walking distance from several beaches, restaurants, shops, and downtown Port Clinton.

Private Post-War Home

A Lustron house won’t appeal to everyone but it’s available at a bargain price and is perfect if you have fantasies about releasing your inner 50’s housewife persona!

This groovy enameled steel home was built in 1949 as part of the post-war boom and is decorated with 50’s style furniture and appliances. It’s located slightly outside of Dayton, making it a fun choice for those wanting to explore the National Museum of the Air Force.

Sadly, none of these properties allow pets. However, two do provide EV chargers on-site (Hocking Hills and Sandusky) if that is a concern for you!

While not an AirBNB, recall this post where we slept in a yurt and enjoyed a safari while NEVER leaving Ohio! Another unique accommodation, for sure.

  1. Hi Betsy. We rarely stay in a chain hotel, since for the most part we like to cook wherever we go. I love unusual places, like the houseboat you showed. Someday, I’d like to stay in a castle here, in Europe. xx

    1. Hi Christina! Many people seem to like rentals for that exact reason – meals, easy access to laundry, etc. A castle stay would be a fun bucket-list destination, for sure! Have a good week!
