Airbnb — Modern Day Bed & Breakfast Right Here in Texarkana
It's a whole new world out there.
We know about Uber drivers -- people who drive you places in their vehicles for cheap. But have you heard of Airbnb? It works the pretty much same way as Uber, but instead of hiring regular ol' people to drive you somewhere, regular ol' people rent out a room in their house or apartment for a low price.
And, believe it or not, we have Airbnb listings in our area.
The first one is located in a Texarkana apartment. It has received some really good reviews and charges only $25 a night -- if you don't mind sharing a bathroom.
We are college students with a small apartment that is just big enough to share. You will be sharing the bathroom with us. You will have access to living room, kitchen, and laundry. Make yourself at home!
The second one in our area is Lakeside Country Home located close to Fouke for just $30 a night. Fouke -- where we sometimes tend to forget the tourist attraction to this area.
I live near the town of Fouke, AR where the 1970's movie, "The Legend of Boggy Creek" was filmed. Museums are nearby with local legend information, along with the infamous Monster Mart in Fouke. Also one hour away from the boats in Shreveport, LA.
The Grace Cottage is located in Washington, Ark., and goes for $130 a night. It's close to Old Washington State Park.
Grace Cottage is a wonderful 1920s home situated in the beautiful town of Washington, Arkansas. The home comfortably fits four and is located next to Historic Washington State Park. Enjoy a relaxing and restful weekend in the community of Washington.
Oh, and check out the Royal Room in DeQueen for $99 a night.
The Royal Room has a Queen bed, a private bathroom with large shower. It has outside access to a porch with double porch swings. It has a desk for your corporate needs with free Wi-Fi. Television and refrigerator. Breakfast is included in your cost.
