Unique places to stay in Washington

Sharing is caring!

[social_warfare]Are you looking for a unique place to stay in Washington? I've got a list of places including farms, treehouses, teepees and more.

The state of Washington is such a beautiful place and I’m so fortunate to call it home. Washington provides many places to stay; hotels, inns, bed and breakfasts, lodges, cabins and more. Whether you’re vacationing here or you live here and looking for a place to get away for a weekend, there’s a place for everyone. Over the years and searching online I’ve noticed we have so many unique places in our state that gives you the option to stay at; like lighthouses or a treehouse. Have you ever wanted to stay in a teepee? Yeah, we have that too. Find many more places you and your family and friends can stay at below and get a different experience then just staying at a hotel.

Have you stayed at any of the below or it’s on your bucket-list? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear about it.
