As much as we love the luxury of a hotel room, these days Airbnb has options that are just as chic—especially for fall getaways. Whether you’re into Northeast leaf peeping or a chill Indian summer beach vibe, these aspirational rentals will have you ready to hop in the car or on a short flight for a long weekend.
Views, Views, Views: Bellingham, WA ($95/night)
This modest, secluded, thoroughly modern room (pictured above) is nestled in the trees overlooking the Salish Sea. The entire back wall is glass, so you can enjoy the views inside or out the deck, cup of coffee in hand.
Kyoto in Cali Vibes: Stinson Beach, CA ($175/night)
Have a taste of Japan without leaving the States. This NorCal getaway has serious onsen inspiration, with a soaking tub, minimalist decor and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
Modern Treehouse: Willow, NY ($350/night)
We’d escape the city to this elevated upstate New York cabin with a S.O. or alone for a weekend of reading and writing. Huge windows in every room make it feel like you’re in the great outdoors all the time. Oh, and did we mention there’s a Swedish wood-burning hot tub outside?
Space-Age Fantasy Situation: Taos, NM ($125/night)
This off-the-grid home built right into the red clay desert mesa collects its own rain water, generates electricity and stays at a steady 72 degrees all year round without electricity—perfect for a weekend of sustainable stargazing.
Storybook Cottage: Tyringham, MA ($225/night)
Surround yourself with greenery (and fall colors) in this round ‘Silo Studio’ in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Talk about living in a fantasy: There’s a lily pond and a babbling brook on the property.
Unplugged Living: Ashfield, MA ($225/night)
File under: not for the faint of heart. There’s no electricity or kitchen in this no-frills cabin, just an outdoor fire pit and a bathroom that’s a two-minute walk away. So if you’re looking for a spot to reconnect with nature sans frills, this is it.
Luxe Loft Living: Flintstone, GA ($245/night)
Get modern comforts along with vintage flair at this treehouse located just outside Chattanooga. Sip wine out on the deck, or make s’mores (the kit’s included) at the outdoor fire pit.
Wooden Wonderland: Aspen, CO ($1,260/night)
This large cabin is perfect for a group that wants easy access to one of our favorite resort towns—Aspen—along with amenities like a hot tub and a trout pond on the property. Whether ski season has started or not, you’ll feel like you’re having a true Western getaway.
