Romantic Airbnbs near NYC

Take it easy with your boo in this calming 1905 home with a full kitchen, bath, large outdoor deck, wood stove, parking, nice yard, and an open floor plan. Here, you'll be able to sleep in comfort in the one master bedroom's queen-sized four-poster bed with a skylight. If you like your getaway with a hefty helping of nature, Lake Pearl is just at the end of the property's private dead-end road. It's also 35 minutes from Boston, 30 minutes from Providence, 2 miles from Wrentham Premium Outlets, 45 minutes to Cape Cod, and a 5-minute walk to downtown quaint Wrentham Village.

Originally owned by a "medicine woman," this 1909 cottage has a fairytale-like feel complete with a grand stone fireplace and a loft-style bedroom. You can’t get better access to the forest (you're quite literally in the thick of it), while a separate screened-in structure (complete with a hanging egg chair and yoga mats) is within earshot of the babbling brook nearby—perfect for soaking in nature from a safe distance.


How romantic would it be to stay in a lighthouse? A former U.S. Coast Guard lighthouse with a keeper's home awaits at Wings Neck Point with incredible 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean. Adventurous couples can climb the mahogany spiral staircase and see the Atlantic from the lantern room, read about the history of the lighthouse, and explore the rocky slopes around the property. The attached three-bedroom house has a large eat-in kitchen (complete with a lobster pot), an outdoor shower, and a fieldstone fireplace to round out the charm. Wings Neck Point has its own private beach, but there are plenty of other beaches worth visiting nearby, too. The small town of Pocasset is approximately 3 miles away and nearby Falmouth and Sandwich offer all the excitement of Cape Cod and the ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.


If you feel like getting rustic, this off-the-grid cabin is totally for those who want to rough it. Inside, you'll find a (seasonal) solar-heated outdoor shower, an outhouse, a seasonal non-potable running water in the kitchen, a propane cook stove, and a wood stove. Adventurers can explore the 20-acre lot the cabin is situated on, which has well-maintained hiking trails and just a few minutes from the Long Trail, renowned rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding.


Snuggle up in this two-bedroom tiny home that has a lofted bed surrounded by windows. Its full kitchen is ready for cooking a meal and its fire pit is perfect for roast marshmallows together. This neat and tidy lil' home is perfect for those seeking nature and togetherness in a short trip. Located on the Shawangunk wine trail, it's easy to get to some of the area's 15 wineries, too.

This stylish one-bedroom cottage offers a romantic vibe both inside and out with a cool mid-century modern fireplace on its wrap-around deck. It has a wonderful view of Greenwood Lake, too, for those looking for a scenic stay. Plus, the location has its perks: it's just minutes away from Mountain Creek Ski Resort, Mount Peter Ski Area (for skiing and snow tubing), local ice cream shops, breweries, vineyards, and more.


Stay in the gorgeous former studio of social realist painter Reginald Marsh, surrounded by juniper, birch and cedar trees, a pond, expansive lawns and more that you'll see through its timber-framed picture windows. The estate is an architect-renovated gem most recently featured at Icon Design Magazine Italy and has a private waterfall bordering public preserves. 


Just over an hour from NYC and ten minutes from the beach, splurge on this riverside farmhouse, the once-upon-a-time home to a Standard Oil heiress' thoroughbred horses. New owners lovingly restored the two-bedroom, 1935 farmhouse (to the tune of $1million) with stylish features like a small reading nook, a large stone fireplace, heated bathroom floors, and even a yoga studio downstairs. Rounding out the bucolic setting, your neighbors—the Airbnb’s owners, who live just across the river—will even bring you fresh eggs from their chicken coop for a farm-fresh breakfast.
