Revealed: The most successful Airbnb rental property in Minnesota


It's a 1,400-square-foot loft in the center of the "coolest new Twin Cities neighborhood," and it's just been ranked as the top Airbnb rental in Minnesota.

The Huffington Post identified the most successful properties listed on the vacation rental website in each state, and Minnesota's can be found in the increasingly trendy North Loop district of Minneapolis.

The rankings were compiled by AirDnA, which analyzed data to find the properties with the highest revenue between November and February, as well as those that had a rating of more than 4.5 stars and at least 10 reviews.

Minnesota's top destination, the listing for which you can find here, is described as a "cool warehouse loft" on North Washington Avenue, with a night in the converted former peanut factory setting you back $165 (with a minimum two-night stay).

For your money you get a modern loft with two bedrooms and a hefty 1,400 square feet of space, a stone's throw from downtown Minneapolis and near to light rail stations and Target Field.

The listing has been placed by the owner, named "Jim," who describes the areas as follows: "There is not a hipper place in Minneapolis - the N Loop is taking off and is starting to feel pretty yuppy, not that that is a bad thing."

And the response from renters has been overwhelmingly positive, with one comment saying: "The loft is quiet, comfortable, and very nicely equipped. The North Loop has evolved from a warehouse district to a stylish urban residential/commercial neighborhood with excellent restaurants, bars, and gyms."

"Our stay was amazing!" another said. "The apartment is better then the pictures and check-in went very smoothly."

Head to Rochester for Minnesota's cheapest Airbnb rentals

According to AirDnA, Minneapolis has by far the most Airbnb listings in the state, with 475 properties available to rent, ahead of St. Paul with 149.

But the most expensive place to stay is Duluth, with an average cost of $95 per night – albeit only 33 properties are listed.

The cheapest is Rochester, where staying in one of the city's 39 Airbnb listings will set you back only $75 per night on average.
