Finding a unique Airbnb doesn't have to mean emptying your wallet.

According to a report by the online casino site, BetMGM, there are plenty of affordable, unique Airbnbs in the U.S. — from sleeping in a silo in Connecticut to burrowing in a "hobbit hole" in California.

These quirky accommodations are also highly rated by guests.

Coming in at No. 1 is The Baying Hound Campground in Asheville, North Carolina. While there are a few different places to stay on the site, the least expensive option is the "Trippy Tortoise Shell-ter" — a turtle-inspired truck cab-camper-tent hybrid. It costs $25 a night and has a 4.90-star review.

No. 2 is The Chicken Coop Grain Bin in Blanchard, Oklahoma. It costs $49 a night and has a 5.0-star rating. The private room is in a repurposed grain bin surrounded by farm animals.

"The Retreat" in Pulaski, New York, ranked third. The unique farm stay home is priced at $60 a night and has a 4.99 rating. The house is about 10 minutes from New York's famed fishing spot, the Salmon River.
