Hudson Valley Airbnb rentals

Located just 15 minutes outside of Woodstock, this secluded “treehouse” flaunts a unique, observatory-like design optimal for mountain, water and starscape views. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway, the main floor is equipped with a full-size kitchen, a wood stove and a lounge-worthy couch overlooking a private, swimmable pond situated on 34 verdant acres. Spend an evening in the Swedish wood-burning hot tub before turning in on the lofted king-size bed bordered by windows and skylights.

This Southeast Asian–inspired sanctuary features an array of luxuries to help you achieve weekend zen. Inside, heated terra-cotta floor tiles beset a stand-alone sunken tub strategically perched behind the main house’s towering two-way fireplace. Outside, detailed Balinese woodwork shades rocking chairs and hammocks that overlook a private swimming pond, hot tub and fire pit. And it’s all just a 90-minute drive from midtown.

If you’re looking to get as close to nature as possible while basking in the glory of indoor plumbing, then this small but mighty cabin is for you. Half glass, half wood, it allows uninterrupted views out across the pool – that's right, there's an outdoor heated pool – to the trees. There's also a hot tub, sauna and no one else around for miles.

Go green at this custom-designed, hand-built eco cottage located just one hour and 45 minutes from Port Authority. The cottage’s ultramodern state-of-the-art appliances, like the induction cooktop and Advantium oven, allow you to conserve household energy during your stay. And when you’re ready to expel some physical energy, hit the hiking trails or nearby swimming hole. Each stay includes two free day passes to Mohonk Preserve—what the Nature Conservancy calls "one of the last great places on earth"and it's only a five-minute walk away.

This house is tiny, but boasts big views. Three sides of the solar-powered abode are made of glass, showcasing panoramas of a 30-acre farm awash with rolling hills, vineyards and apple orchards. Feel the city stress melt away as you lay in bed gazing up at the stars. And when you wake from your siren-free sleep, enjoy local farm-fresh eggs on the outdoor dining table cloaked by Mother Nature.

Satisfy your inner glamper in this 34-foot vintage Airstream. Fully equipped with three beds, hot water and a full kitchen, you’ll love coming home to this cozy camper after hiking Hudson’s trails. There’s even Wi-Fi so you can catch up on your favorite shows while lounging in the hammock.

Ever wanted to sleep in a Space Age birds nest in the middle of the forest? Alright it's niche, we'll give you that, but it sure is stunning. This unique wooden pod just outside New Paltz is nestled within 28 acres of private land, so you won't be disturbed, except by the raoming wildlife, which includes chipmunks, deers and turkeys. Inside there's central heating and AC, sturdy wifi, surround sound system and – get this – a piano and a hot tub.

The 4,000-square-foot Mission House Sanctuary is the ideal place for your large group getaway. Each of the four globally inspired bedrooms has its own private bathroom and outdoor sitting space. On the main level, guests can pile into the open concept living-dining-and-kitchen area that opens out to an expansive dining deck overlooking the serene, lily pad–laden pond. In a house this size, there are plenty of tranquil sitting spaces to steal some alone time.

Whether or not you want to worship, all are welcome at the old Taghkanic Center Church turned vacation rental. The 1856 relic has been updated beautifully, to an incredibly high standard, and now has everything you could possibly want for a Hud Val getaway. Added extras include a big screen and projector (with all relevant inputs) and a wood-burning stove. There's heating, but no AC.

Even the most outspoken glamping critic will change their tune after spending one weekend at this luxe yurt located on a 27-acre horse farm just two hours north of NYC. The spacious 700-square-foot cylindrical structure is decked out with a full kitchen and charcoal grill for rustic cooking, propane fireplace for evening reading and skylight for nighttime stargazing. Glampers even have access to the farm’s hot tub just two minutes from the yurt.

The spacious Mountain View Retreat lives up to its name. Adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows and a roomy back deck, the mountain views are sure to take your breath away, morning, noon and night. The portable fire pit, gas grill and non-toxic eight-person hot tub make entertaining large groups of family or friends a breeze.

Not only is this beauty of a barn located in a secluded, lush meadow, but it's been created entirely from reclaimed wood, glass and other hardware. It has a wonderfully warm, rustic, DIY charm to it and is eminently homely. This is the perfect base for those who love walking and watching, as hiking trails and a bird sanctuary are nearby.
