The 17 best Airbnbs in Hudson Valley from fall through to spring

Find the best Hudson Valley Airbnbs for a romantic getaway, a weekend with your pals, or a family vacation right here


Ahh, NYC. Street-style mecca, famously known as the city that never sleeps. Hence the coffee. Truth is, there’s never a dull moment here and that’s why we love it. From every street corner to every block, you’ll witness the weird and wonderful happenings of this bagel-deli-lined concrete treasure. Travel upstate and it’s a completely different vibe (a bit like NYC’s introverted cousin) – we’re talking no neon lights, only the amber glow of a wood-burning stove. And when it’s time to escape the inner-city chaos, there’s no place quite like Hudson Valley.

While New Yorkers can always catch their breath in one of NYC’s many (admittedly excellent) spas, a temporary escape from the traffic doesn’t always cut it. Sometimes what you really need – read: the only remedy – is a long weekend in a cozy cabin to help you fully decompress.

Without further ado, we’ve rounded up the best places the stay in Hudson Valley, many of which boast breathtaking views, cracking amenities, and scenic hiking trails – all within a few hours’ drive of Manhattan. Time to embrace the calm.

There’s no worry about being able to see the view from this spectacular cabin in the Hudson Valley countryside. Built around a bombastic boulder on a bluestone ledge, one side of the place is crafted entirely from floor-to-ceiling windows giving sweeping panoramic views of the surrounding wooded countryside. It also means the stylishly curved kitchen bar, the circular sunken living space and the huge 10-seater dining table are bathed in natural light.

Just one look and we were in love, true love. Hidden away on a rural 10-acre homestead, this beautiful cottage will transport you back to a simpler time of life (the one before 24-hour online connectivity). Liberally whitewashed throughout, the interiors have something of the classic fisherman’s cottage about them. But rather than be on the edge of the ocean, you’ll be within walking distance of the village and surrounded by delectable, peaceful nature.
