Modern Farmhouse Bungalow || Airbnb Review

Back in October we were planning a quick weekend trip to Idaho and decided to look into Airbnb for the very first time. When we found this listing, we knew we had to book it right away! This incredible Modern Farmhouse Bungalow is on a 5 acre property just outside Twin Falls, ID. It was super close to the falls, and the most relaxing atmosphere for our weekend away. The hostess was very thoughtful and had breakfast, drinks and a basket of goodies waiting for us at the house when we arrived. Their property is absolutely gorgeous! In the backyard there were chickens, goats, two dogs, and a pond full of ducks. It was a true farmhouse experience and it exceeded every expectation I had!

What we didn't quite expect was the immersive experience that Airbnb offers. For two days, we felt like we were living the farm life. We ate at all the local restaraunts, and enjoyed all the wonderful scenery that Twin Falls has to offer. (See our favorite scenic views, here.) It was everything we could have dreamed and more.

This photo right here. It's probably the best I've ever taken of a landscape. I feel like it's almost National Geographic worthy. Talk about heart eyes! I wish the day hadn't been so bright, or they all might have turned out like this.

Regardless of what I was able to capture on camera, Shoshone Falls Park is breathtakingly beautiful. When we drove up to see the falls, you could here the water spraying down the rocks. Stepping down to the lookout deck was a moment I'll never forget. Getting so close to the falls and feeling that mist was spectacular. I'm probably overusing adjectives right now, but being there was almost as healing to my soul as walking on the beach next to the ocean. 

What is it about water that is so calming? Watching it, hearing it, smelling it. I don't really know, but I can't seem to get enough of it. Another thing I can't get enough of, fall foliage. The park next to the falls was bursting with color. This place was so much better than I had even imagined. We will most likely be visiting again. 

Another great tourist attraction in Twin Falls is the Perrine Memorial Bridge. It has lookout points underneath the bridge where you can get a lovely view of the Snake River. I was even able to catch a shot of a BASE jumper about to land and a boat cruising toward us. The boat shot is my second favorite scenic photo of the trip. (Still learning, guys) And of course I had to share a photo of my man wearing our baby. The most attractive thing, ever. Just scroll to the bottom and you'll understand. 

This vacation was seriously so good for Matthew and I. We are even more excited to explore new places together. What are your favorite places to travel? In and outside the U.S.? Leave a comment and let us know what to put on our BUCKET LIST! Lots of love!

Back in October, Matthew and I were able to spend a weekend in Idaho and I am just now getting around to editing the photos and sharing them with you. We usually go to California with my family, but felt like we needed some time away as a couple. Turner stayed home with Grammy Salter and Grey came along for the ride because he is seriously the happiest and easiest baby ever. I had found an Airbnb (a post about that coming soon!) and the sights Idaho to offer. After discussing it together, we decided on three places. City of Rocks, Shoshone Falls Park, and Perrine Memorial Bridge.  City of Rocks was the beginning of our journey. We took a small detour to drive through the reserve on our way to Twin Falls. When we started coming upon the rocks, I couldn't believe my eyes.

I felt like I had stepped into a world described by J. R. R. Tolkien. The misty skies gave it the most eerie and simultaneously serene feeling. I LOVED it. It was raining the whole time and the dirt roads were so muddy. Basically it was extremely dangerous and we were a nervous wreck whenever we were in the car. Haha! Still, SO worth the drive. Although I can't speak for my chauffeur. Sorry, Matthew.

But there was such a story being told in this place. So many people had traveled through this reserve and some of them had made it their home. It was incredible and I'd go back there in a heartbeat. Maybe when it's not so slippery...

Our visit to Shoshone Falls and Perrine Bridge will be up on the blog tomorrow, with Airbnb details on Saturday. Sign up to my subscription list if you don't want to miss it! Lots of love!
