Spend The Night at This Springfield, Tennessee Ark of Biblical Proportions

One of the quirkier AirBNB options in Middle Tennessee can be found in the city of Springfield. That's where you can find the ideal cross between a house boat, a cozy cabin and the traditional depiction of Noah's Ark from the Old Testament.

The one bedroom, one bathroom rental fits up to four guests (not two each of every animal on Earth because no pets are allowed) and features a two-person hot tub. Inside, it's more log cabin than Biblical vessel.

It's one of several rentals on a 50-plus acre property, with other options including a Civil War cabin and a treehouse mansion. Per the listing, the grounds include hiking trails, a labyrinth, a pond to fish and a creek that runs year-round.
