Littleton, New Hampshire - Piano Project

Littleton, New Hampshire

We have developed a noticeable soft spot for small, New England towns. After booking a month in New York City, we’d intentionally set our Airbnb sights on the beautiful and rejuvenating Cherry Valley Farm. As has become tradition in our full time travels, as soon as we’d unpacked, we went out in search of takeout. Ten minutes down the road we found ourselves delighted by the discovery of Littleton, New Hampshire. With its bustling Main

California Highway 1

Contrary to our Midwestern assumptions, it turns out there are cold, rainy days in California. And they can come in relentless succession. When we left our Airbnb in New Mexico for two weeks of reservation-free wandering up California’s famous Highway 1, the coastal camping trip we envisioned was warm and carefree. Just a few days into our trip, we were knee-deep in the consequences of our own spontaneity: the rainfly on our old tent had

National Monuments of New Mexico

Not long into our drive towards Albuquerque we realized our mistake in not having visited New Mexico sooner.

Oxford, Nailsworth, Benenden: Our Airbnb Honeymoon Part II

We visited three different towns, each of which got progressively smaller. We spent a day in Oxford, a couple nights in Nailsworth, and wrapped our trip with four days in the two-street town of Benenden (not to be confused with the nearby village of Biddenden). Here were the stops that made the

London, England: Our Airbnb Honeymoon Part I

The day after our tiny, backyard wedding, we grabbed our two backpacks and headed off to England for our honeymoon. Staying exclusively in Airbnbs, we split two weeks between the buzz of London and picturesque towns scattered through the English countryside. In this two part series, we’ll share our favorite urban and rural spots from this whirlwind trip. Unapologetically stunning, surprisingly approachable, albeit relentlessly expensive, London is arguably the most impressive big city we’ve explored via

Chatham, New York

I grew up next door to an Irish Catholic cop from upstate New York. When Jay and I knew we’d be venturing to the northeast for the first time, we asked him for his recommendations. This stoic guy got a big grin on his face, and rattled off an incredible list of stops. At the end he said, “But really the best part about New York is all the small towns. Most of them have

WHY WE LOVE THIS COMMUNITY

Hi there! We’re Erin and Jay, and we’re so happy you’re visiting bnbNomad. We discovered Airbnb in the spring of 2017 when we embarked on a nomadic adventure exploring North America. With our lanky pup Odin in tow, we lived for a year in Airbnbs, working remotely during the day and soaking in our surroundings by night. From New England farms to Southwest cabins, our generous hosts and their distinctive homes made our adventures more incredible than we could have imagined. As avid Airbnb travelers, bnbNomad is our small way of giving back to a community we love. We share the hosting tricks we adore as guests, feature homes and destinations from our journeys, and give travelers around the world an inside look at the unique perspective Airbnb has to offer.
