When we think of Grandma’s house, we immediately picture wicker chairs, floral pillows and vintage furniture that could crumble at any second. While it doesn’t suit everyone’s personal taste, millennials are purposely flocking to these Airbnb rentals in an attempt to channel their inner grandmillennial aesthetic.

The grandmillennial aesthetic aims to rekindle memories of childhood, providing a sense of nostalgia and comfort that can only remind you of Grandma’s house.

Keep reading for seven Airbnb spots that will undoubtedly take you on a trip down memory lane (and perhaps inspire your next needlepoint project).
