Unusual Lodgings Around the World

Fair Oak Farm in England, where you can sleep in a treehouse.
Sometimes the places you stay can be as interesting as the place you visit

Whether you're staying in a yurt on the Isle of Man, or a four-star hotel in downtown Mexico City, the places we choose to lay down our heads can vary and truly matter!

Find articles here that lean to the different, and skew toward the off beat.We want to help you find the unusual places, the kinds of places you might not think of, which will prove to be fascinating and fun!

We cater to people who are looking for something a little different. No cookie cutter chain hotels here, just unique B&Bs, unusual small hotels, and places where you will wake up and say "Wow!"
