Raleigh is the second most popular Airbnb destination in the U.S. for Labor Day weekend, according to a study from the company.

Hosting an Airbnb during Labor Day weekend in Raleigh can make you lots of money, the study shows.

Last year during Labor Day weekend, Airbnb hosts in Raleigh earned more than $170,000 total with a median payout of more than $460.

According to a survey of Airbnb hosts, 41% of them say they use Airbnb to help cover the rising cost of living.

"With so many getting away for the holiday, Labor Day is also an excellent time to consider hosting to earn extra income," said Haven Thorn, a spokesperson for Airbnb said in a release. "In fact, in 2021, Sept. 4 was the date with the largest number of check-ins at U.S. destinations."

The Triangle area has some unique Airbnbs that are still open for the weekend. Cohen said that most people don't book their trip on Airbnb until a week beforehand, so there's still time to book.

'Mountain Cabin in Town'

Still available to rent for Labor Day weekend is a classy, private cabin tucked in the woods in Wake Forest.

The A-frame style cabin has a private pool, gaming console, TV and internet. It's also not too far from the town of Wake Forest.

The secluded nature of the property still gives you that camping feel, without you having to sacrifice any of that comfort.
