With its countryside setting and charming small towns, it’s no secret that the state of Vermont spellbinds Northeasterners. During wintertime, Vermont welcomes alpine and cross-country skiers who make a beeline for the state’s snow-blanketed open fields and trails, as well as ski resorts such as Stratton and Stowe. Whenever you do decide to go to Vermont, we’ve rounded up three secluded, cozy Airbnbs (@airbnb) to check out.
1️⃣ A Revamped Farmhouse near Stowe: Set on 255 privately-owned acres and located 14 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort, vacation rental @greensmtnmeadow is an old barn that has completely been revamped with deft craftsmanship, both interiorly and exteriorly. For a true farm-turned-Airbnb experience, make sure to sleep in one of the bedrooms located in the attached silo. (📷: @kjp)
2️⃣ A Mountainy, Boho-like A-Frame: Situated on the edge of the Green Mountain Forest in Southern Vermont, @thevermontaframe is a 1965-built cabin. While the exterior A-frame is postcard-pretty, the rental’s interior is mountain-esque and boho-like with design splendors such as wood floors, high ceilings, a vintage pair of skis plastered on the wall, and a stone fireplace. With its bucolic location and accompanying lack of light pollution, travelers can marvel at the constellation-abundant sky with the rental’s class-a telescope and stargazing guide. When not navigating the Big Dipper, during the daytime, skiers will love how Bromley Mountain and Stratton Mountain Resort are a short drive away. (📷: @dirtandglass)
3️⃣ A Modern, Cozy Cabin with a Hot Tub: 7.5 miles to Mt. Snow and 12 miles to Stratton, @blackaframevt is a Southern Vermont-located, woodsy cabin situated on seven acres of land. Warming up after a day on the slopes is easy here, with both an outside firepit — ideal for making s’mores — and hot tub on the outside deck — the perfect place for self-care and rejuvenation.
