I always think that staying at an Airbnb sounds like fun. How about staying on a houseboat on the Mississippi river?

You can actually rent "Miss Guided" for two nights to a week, and be the Captain of the boat. If you don't feel comfortable driving a big houseboat down the Mississippi River, they will have someone come and take you down the river, anchor it for an evening, and come back the next day to float down the river to a new location for the next day; it's completely up to you.

The "Miss Guided" sleeps up to 6 guests and you have access to the entire boat. You can captain from the upper bridge or inside. The houseboat has a large sleeping area below the deck, and the main cabin has two big sitting areas that turn into beds.

There is also a full kitchen including a full size refrigerator, stove and oven; plus a gas grill. Of course, there's also a bathroom on the boat. It wouldn't be prudent to have all this luxury and then make you pee in a bucket.

On the outdoor upper deck, there is huge sitting area, where you can just relax with friends and family, and enjoy the great views of the Mississippi River.

"Miss Guided" goes for $300 a night, and has a rating of 4.82. Can't get much better than that.

To access the houseboat, you'll be heading to Brainerd. The houseboat is hosted by Sheila; who is rated as a Super Host. A Super Host rating is the best rating you can get from Airbnb, and means that Sheila is an experienced host, and will make sure that you have a great time on your houseboat vacation.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
