The tipis of Santa Fe lies in the rolling hills southeast of Santa Fe in Lamy. Those looking for a unique outdoor experience can stay in one of five tipis on Airbnb. Everyone has three beds.
"It really makes you feel like you're traveling," said Matthew Andrae.
Andrae started renting the tipis on 10 acres in February. Since then, it is fully booked and welcomes guests from countries as far away as Italy and France.
"I have people telling me that their lives have changed because they are under the stars, in the wind, at five degrees weather" said Andrä. "And I'm not sure if that's for better or worse."
There is no electricity, no Wi-Fi or running water, which forces the guests to get back in touch with nature. Andrae, half of the Native Americans, hopes that visitors will also appreciate the Native American culture.
"The tepee itself has some magic," he said. "I think if you see them at night and the smoke comes out of the top, you suddenly realize, wow, that's what people do, and it's an intense insight, so I'd like to be a magnet for that kind of mood . " ,
He hopes to extend his tepees soon to two more locations near Santa Fe.
"I think I could do it all over the country," he said.
It will cost a lot depending on the time of year between $ 55 to $ 1
