Peek Inside the Off-the-Grid Airbnb Owned by Minnesota’s Best New Hosts
Airbnb just named their best new hosts of 2021. They picked one new host from each state to feature and the hosts from Minnesota have a very unique place looking over Lake Superior.
There were three requirements that Airbnb had when deciding who was selected as their best new hosts: they had to have started hosting in 2021, the hosts had the most check-ins in the state, and they had already achieved Superhost status.
The best new hosts in Minnesota are Stevie and Juani. They own this Airbnb that's up in Grand Marais. They built this place, along with a contractor, in 2020 and just started hosting guests this year. The place, called Patagonia Cabin, was inspired by the time Stevie and Juani lived in Patagonia, Argentina. They even have decor from Patagonia in the cabin and also decor from local Grand Marais artists.
This Airbnb is very unique because it's off-the-grid. Electricity is supplied by solar panels, the fireplace and stove run on gas, and there's no running water. Yep. They do still have a way for you to shower though, but it's like nothing I've ever experienced before.
