I have started to love using AirBnB and VRBO for vacation rentals when going on vacation.  It's generally a lot cheaper than a hotel, and you can have either your whole family in a house, or a group of friends can all stay together in a home and it can really be fun with everyone splitting the cost.  This can make a vacation in a really nice place much for affordable than staying in a hotel or resort.

Vergas, Minnesota is located a few miles off of Hwy 10 near Frazee on County Road 17.  It's about an hour outside of Fargo, ND.  And honestly, there's not a lot going on there.  It's a sleepy little town with a population of about 331 according to the latest census.  I get if you'd like to have a little family get-away staycation.  Hang out on a lake with all that has to offer.  This AirBNB was offered this past summer for $300,000 a month.  Then a couple of months later, it was offered at $750,000 a month - AND you had to rent it for an entire month.  I'm wondering how many takers he had on that thing.  Now. if you check on it it's being offered at a nightly price of $111.  Much more doable.  It may be because it's on a lake, it's cold, not as much to do as there might be in the Summer?

I just can't imagine anyone spending that kind of money on this prior to the price drop. And who has the opportunity to take a month off?  Unless you are working from home, then the WiFi is probably another charge. Just a guess.

You can check out the rental here Here are some of the pictures too. Also- the description of said rental:

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
