The best winter getaways from NYC all have a few things in common: charming aesthetics, snug blankets, steaming cups of hot chocolate, and oodles of snow. It also helps if they're situated neatly near the mountains (or even in them) so that you can spend some time skiing all over the place (hopefully with no broken bones). These remarkable Airbnbs check all the boxes, and they are all by ski resorts near NYC.

Whether you’d like to book an effortless weekend trip within easy reach of the Big Apple or want to go the whole hog and take a full week out on the slopes, there are loads of cabins near NYC to rent on Airbnb. Beautiful chalets, contemporary condos, and 19th-century farmhouses all appear on our list of Airbnbs near the slopes.

Distance from NYC: 2.5 hours
Where to ski: Belleayre and Hunter Mountains

Get the best of both worlds at this charming and stylish home. Not only will you be staying close to fantastic eateries (including the Phoenicia Diner and Woodstock Brewery), but you're a mere 15 minutes from the breathtaking Belleayre and Hunter Mountains, where ski season is incredibly goof. The host, Jay, has taken care to help guests feel right at home, with a healthy collection of vinyl to play on a vintage stereo, a smart TV, and a large campfire in the backyard. What else do you need? Snow, but you'll get that for sure. Remarkable scenes so close to Manhattan, don't you think?

This home also overlooks a private lake, so the views are ridiculous. Add to that a load of wildlife on your doorstep and Whiteface Mountain's cross-country skiing potential, and you have yourself quite the rural escape.

3. The stowe log chalet in Morristown, VT

Just a mile from Stowe, and twenty minutes from the Stowe Mountain Resort's ski lift, you'll find this very nice and spacious log chalet, which has everything you need for the ideal getaway. There are five bedrooms and it can sleep up to 12 – thanks to the sofa bed in the lounge – making it a perfect base for friends or several families to split the costs without compromising on quality. Dogs are welcome too, which is a huge plus if you have a skiing dog. After a day on the slopes, relax in front of the fireplace, or head outside to the hot tub and watch the sun go down over the trees. Crazy to think you're just a stone's throw away from the alpine action, and merely six hours from actual NYC.

In out, in out, shake it all about. This modern condo on the slopes of Mount Snow offers amenities galore: a wood-burning fireplace, a massive sectional sofa, a flat-screen HDTV, and access to the sauna, hot tub, and pool at the lodge. Since the three-bedroom, three-bathroom space can easily accommodate as many as 10 people, it’s perfect for a group getaway. Set trailside, you’ve got easy access to the best skiing spot as well as a handy outdoor locker. But why that weird first sentence, Time Out? Well, the place has ski-in/ski-out access, so you can really get the full day on the slopes. If you fancy some not skiing activity, there's a five-million-dollar sports center with a gym, pools, and more; and you're pretty close to a load of great restaurants. Vermont's a lovely part of the world.

Two, it's right at the base of Hunter Mountain, and the slopes are within walking distance. Thirdly you can get as many as 11 people in here across four bedrooms and a living area. There are three bathrooms too, so you won't be contemplating whether to make the snow yellow. Oh also, less than 150 miles from New York City.

7. The Adirondack riverfront log cabin in Wilmington, NY

Views. Postcard picture vibes. Your eyes are going to be all over this quaint cabin, with a deck that offers views of the Ausable River. If that wasn't enough, go check the balcony just off the master bedroom. It overlooks Whiteface Mountain. Handmade furniture, cedar ceilings, and framed photographs of the area give the interior a rustic-chic aesthetic. Best of all, the sturdy construction keeps this log cabin toasty warm even when the temperature dips below zero. The basement has a pingpong table, a foosball table, and more fun things to spend the evenings enjoying. There's a big lovely warm fireplace to sit beside, too. How peaceful, how home-away-from-homely. 

Rooms? Two bedrooms. Sleeps six guests. 
The mood? Ambient and rustic.
Distance from NYC: 5 hours
Where to ski: Whiteface Mountain

8. The grand stay with views galore in Windham

You need to be at least 25 to rent this spot, but if you're of age, you're going to want to read on (or bookmark it for when you do hit the quarter of a century). It sleeps ten across four bedrooms and a lounge and is a superb spot to call a temporary home at any time of the year (there's hiking, biking, and golfing to be done along with skiing). You're a five-minute hike to the mountains, and you can see them from inside the country-cozy home thanks to its massive windows. 

Rooms? Four bedrooms. Sleeps 10 guests. 
The mood? Non-stop views. 
Distance from NYC: 3 hours.

9. The lakefront getaway in Hollis, NH

If true seclusion and total immersion in nature (within convenient enough driving distance of the big apple) is what you crave, then this lakefront cottage in New Hampshire's Hollis is going to be a bit of you. The rustic home's original purpose was to be used as a hunting cabin, which was back in the early 1900s, far before Airbnb. You know what they say though, the early bird gets the worms, and the worms in this case are the location. The cabin is just 60 feet from Silver Lake. It's also directly on a hiking and cross-country skiing trail, which means you could step outside and hike all the way to Canada if you felt that way inclined. Alternatively, if you're in the mood to simply chill out, then you can choose from a huge selection of board games, sit by the fire, or keep warm in the wood-fired sauna. It's as much a place for a retreat as it is action. 

Rooms? One bedroom. Sleeps two guests. 
The mood? Woodcladded oasis by the lake. 
Distance from NYC: 4 hours.
Where to ski: Hollis (cross-country skiing only).
Budget? A decently priced couple's ski trip.

10. The cozy mountain home with million dollar view in Stowe, VT

Swap city noise for absolute tranquility at this spacious home located 10 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort. Despite being located close to town, it feels very secluded with a sweeping view of the mountains through the massive A-frame living room window. Skiing is just ten minutes away, while the town is five minutes away, which is very, very convenient. 

Rooms? Four bedrooms. Sleeps 10 guests. 
The mood? Antique vibes.
Distance from NYC: 6 hours. 
Where to ski: Stowe Mountain Resorts.
Budget? Pocket-friendly stay for a group ski trip to remember.
