Though every state in the US has its own character and local attractions, Oregon is one of the most unique places in the country. It has diverse geographical and national wonders such as Crater Lake, Mount Hood, and the Painted Hills. Along the ocean, the Oregon coastline ranges from sandy beaches to craggy cliffs. Culturally, the state has different charms, too. The largest city, Portland, is known for its funky atmosphere and craft microbreweries. Oregon also has a smattering of historical cities such as Brownsville and Pendleton that look straight out of the Wild West. If you’re visiting this destination, make your trip unforgettable by forgoing the average hotel or vacation rental. Read on for our picks of the most unique Airbnbs in Oregon.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 12, 2024.
