This unique Airbnb in Hudson Valley is an architectural masterpiece. Designed with geometry in mind, orbs of wood are carved out throughout the house, allowing in natural light in many obscure ways. The house is heated geothermically – instead of fossil fuels – and the wood stove is highly efficient in keeping the home warm during the winter months. Although the space can host up to four guests, it's worth noting that the majority of the property is open-plan – so you may want to know your vacation buddies pretty well.
