Have you ever thought about getting away for the weekend or just an overnight stay, but don't want to leave town?  I ask this, because I have some very good friends, Mic and Fancie and they have been married for over 30 years.

What I love about them is that every few months they get a hotel room right here in Billings to just get away from their everyday life and house.

They eat dinner out and then spend the night at the hotel for a little change of pace.

I started thinking how fun it would be to do that for my husband (we will be married 17 years on February 19th), but instead of renting a hotel room I got a line on AIRBNB from my friend, Cindy.

I had no idea that there are places in Billings and nearby that you can rent for one night or several nights.

Check out some of these cool places I found you can rent for about what it would cost you to rent a hotel room and in some cases less than an average hotel.
