The travel bug bit the world hard this year after everyone was forced to be stuck inside. Now that there is a fighting chance to get back out there and explore safely, it’s crunch time for booking your next vacation. And luckily, we have the ultimate list of the most popular Airbnbs that can be found in every great state across America.
From the most tropical treehouses to unique underground getaways, we have found the most sought-after vacation homes that will make the perfect backdrop for your next Instagram post. We’re not quite sure what some of these homeowners had in mind when it came to the architecture and interior design of each home, but for some reason, it’s working out well for these humble abodes.
Cameron, Arizona – Hogan by the River
If you’re planning on vacationing in the desert Arizona climate, you better make sure that your accommodations have proper air conditioning to keep you cool while you’re resting. But nothing says proper insulation like staying in a giant cave with zero windows. Ladies and gentlemen, look no further than the Hogan by the River earth house in Cameron, Arizona.
Starting at $141 per night, you too can experience what it’s like to be a modern-day caveman. But keep in mind that we mean this in the most realistic way possible.

One might as well consider this geodesic dome as a luxury camping activity simply because of the enclosed structure you’ll be sleeping in. Aside from that, the surrounding nature will function as your bathroom. We guess this makes sense why the hosts only charge their guests $49 per night to stay here.
