GREELEY, Colo. – This isn’t your typical Airbnb listing.

It’s not a downtown condo or a quaint house in a trendy neighborhood, but just outside of Greeley there’s a Western-style fort that could be perfect for you and 36 of your closest friends.

The Airbnb listing for the Platte River Fort says it was built as a replica of Bent’s Old Fort in La Junta. It’s situated on 235 acres east of town and after taxes and fees, it costs just under $5,000 a night to rent.

If you’re balking at the nearly-$5,000 price tag, the listing says smaller group packages and wedding packages are available and priced separately.
