Airbnb also tracks hosts performance in relation to their guests, and rewards the highest quality hosts with a “Superhost” badge on the site. Superhosts are typically high quality, professional hosts that take great care of their guests before, during, and after their stay.

Read what other guests have had to say about their experience in staying with a host through Airbnb. The guest experience is critical when choosing an Airbnb, and finding a host that truly cares about their guests’ experience can be a task. Read reviews like the reviews of Northwoods Farmstead, and take previous guests’ thoughts into consideration when selecting a Door County Airbnb. Many experienced hosts have earned the “Superhost” badge on Airbnb as mentioned above, which displays that the hosts take great care of their home and their guests, while providing a positive experience time and time again.

Trusted hosts are not limited to just Superhosts and Premier Hosts, though. Do your own research to see what other guests have said about their experience with a given host. It may be that the property is new to Airbnb but the hosts are doing an exceptional job with their guest experience, and they just haven’t earned the Superhost badge yet, or they may not book enough reservations through Airbnb.
Depending on the size of your group, the location you prefer to stay in, and when you want to visit, there are many variables to consider to find a great Door County Airbnb that fits your needs. When it comes to Airbnb’s, how far in advance a reservation is booked is called a “booking window.” Booking windows can be helpful to know when you need to start your search for a property, so that you don’t miss out on the best properties available in Door County.
If you’re planning to find a Door County Airbnb, the key is to plan to start your search early. Especially if you’re searching for a stay during the summer months! Most Door County Airbnb’s see a booking window of up to 180 days for summer reservations. For example, if you’re looking for a 3 bedroom vacation rental in Sister Bay, like Northwoods Farmstead, for a reservation in August, you should plan to book your reservation nearly six months in advance. The busiest time of year for upcoming summer bookings for Door County Airbnb’s is typically around the holidays and into January.
