The top Airbnb rentals in all 50 states- Where is North Dakota’s?  

Airbnb has released a list of the top-ranked hosts in all 50 states across the country. 

See the top-rated Airbnb hosts in all 50 states

The homestay rental company compiled the list using hosts who had a 5-star minimum when it came to cleanliness, check-in and communication. For the states that had more than one incredible host, the tiebreaker went to the host with the most reviews.  And while getting a handful of perfect reviews is good, consistency is key.  

North Dakota’s best Airbnb is located in Minot.. Downtown Minot to be more specific.  

It’s a one-bedroom apartment at a place called Oliver’s Landing.
