Brooklynite Patrick Horton saw an opportunity in the deep snow in his backyard. He built an igloo and listed it for rent on Airbnb at $200 a night! The igloo was framed in the ad as a romantic getaway. Well, it does have an air mattress, bedding, and lights. The website pulled the ad after a few hours on Sunday, citing its rules that the igloo did not meet its occupancy standards. They require accommodations to have "running water, electricity, and a roof that doesn’t melt." But Horton has an alternate plan.

“I think we’ll try to put it on Craigslist. We might even offer a Tinder special. Maybe throw in some Usher (background music) and a bottle of wine,” he joked Monday.

The heart-melting hideaway includes two candles for ambience, puffy pillows, animal print blankets over a tarp and even some landscaping in the form of a small tree placed near the entrance, he told The News.

“Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays this Snowpocalypse’s most desirable getaway,” Horton wrote for the quickly yanked Airbnb ad.

“Built completely by hand all natural,” he said. “Come experience this chic dome-style bungalow with Bae."

Would anyone really consider paying $200 to sleep in a pile of snow in a back yard? Horton said five people inquired about the igloo before Airbnb pulled the ad.  -via Uproxx
