Couple Converts A Cold War-Era Missile Silo Into An Awesome Airbnb Rental

There are decommissioned Cold War-era missile silos all over the U.S. and Russia (and a few other places neither side wants us to know about), and even though they haven't been used for decades most are sitting around empty.

This is largely because these missile launch facilities are made of stone, steel and concrete, they're located underground and they weren't really made to be anything but missile silos.

But when Matthew and Leigh Ann Fulkerson came across an old silo owned by their neighbors Ed and Dianna Peden in Eskridge, Kansas they saw something nobody else ever has- the potential to be a swanky rental property.

So the couple converted the underground facility into a truly unique Airbnb rental experience perfect for history buffs, Mole People and people who want to keep their vacations totally underground:

The space is decorated in bohemian eclectic style for its guests, who can make the most of the hot tub and have tours around the quirky space, even checking out the launchpad control.

The impressive space is about 18,000 square feet, while the outside area offers an outdoor pond, and moon deck. Visitors will also be able to make the most of wildlife, and can expect to see the occasional mountain lion, coyotes, deer and skunks. It is believed to be the first and only Airbnb located in a converted missile silo.
