What is a homestay?

A homestay is use of land that can be permitted in your home if:
  • You live in a residentially-zoned area
  • You live in the house or apartment (“dwelling unit”) full-time;
  • You propose to rent one to two bedrooms; and
  • You propose to rent out these bedrooms for less than 30 days at a time.
Rental of an entire dwelling unit for less than a month is called a short-term vacation rental (STVR). STVRs are only permitted in the resort zoning district.
