As a recently retired couple, we have combined our love for hosting guests at our Lake Home and need for extra funds for health insurance. Becoming a host family with Airbnb has allowed us to afford to stay in our home and cover health insurance. The added benefit has been interacting and building relationships with guests from the US and abroad. We enjoy helping our guests explore local restaurants, businesses, and entertainment.Our most recent guests were from China. We thank Airbnb for the support they have shared with us.
