My husband and I currently live in northwest Ohio. My husband grew up in Cheboygan, MI where we rent out a cottage through airbnb on Lake Huron. We love to travel -- to visit members of our family throughout the US and beyond ---- and to explore different areas and cultures. We find airbnb to give a more authentic and comfortable travel experience.
