Daydreaming of a long weekend...

airbnb coxsackieWe were quite happy to recently come across AirBnB, a site that's "an online marketplace allowing anyone from private residents to commercial properties to rent out their extra space." For two reasons:

  1. We got to feed our desire to gawk at real estate
  2. It allowed us to indulge in a little daydreaming about heading off to the country for a long weekend. For example, at this gorgeous place in Coxsackie (photo on the right).

There aren't a ton of regional properties listed. But there are a handful, many of them in Western MA and the Hudson Valley. And, of course, there's always Montreal...

Wow... that's really cool. I gotta check this out next time I'm travelling...

Thanks for that site! I'm going to use them the next time I go to NYC too...

Ever tried Couchsurfing? Kind of the same thing except, you know, free.

We've done it dozens of times. It's fabulous.
