Container Cabin in the Catskills in Saugerties, NY

Who knew a shipping container could be so eco-chic? The owners retrofitted this simple 20-foot container with high-efficiency insulated walls, low energy windows, a wood stove, composting toilet and tiny kitchen to turn it into the ultimate off-the-grid escape. Walk 100 yards north of the cabin to find a 30-foot waterfall; trek south to find a small stream and wood-fired hot tub.

Three-Story Victorian in the Trees in West Cornwall, CT

It doesn’t get much more picturesque than this three-story 1870s home surrounded by lush green foliage. The covered bridge you drive over, the views of the creek from the porch, the gorgeous garden: It all adds up for a stunningly beautiful location. The interior retains plenty of historic touches (think Shaker furniture, weathered Oriental rugs and a clawfoot tub) but has thankfully been updated with modern amenities.

Mt. Guardian Guest House in Bearsville, NY

This Hudson Valley guesthouse is surrounded by forests and wilderness: the ideal location for city dwellers looking to unplug. All of the cabin’s windows look out onto the natural landscape and a skylight over the queen-sized bed offers pristine views of the night sky. After an afternoon of skiing or hiking, kicking back with a book in one of the hammock chairs feels oh-so-good.

Silo Studio Cottage in Tyringham, MA

Tower for two? You might feel a bit like Rapunzel as you climb the steps to the canopied queen bed in this cylindrical silo, but luckily there’s no evil witch to imprison you in the Berkshires. The charming cottage used to be Henry Hudson Kitson's sculpting studio, so one has to imagine that the Santarella Estate grounds were his inspiration. Explore the delightful gardens, lily pond and babbling brook before climbing into bed for the night.

Off-the-grid slanted cabin in Hudson

There are tiny houses, and there are tiny houses—and this architect-designed cabin on 20 acres of secluded land with Catskill-mountain views—is truly something to behold. You're seriously off the grid here, with no electricity or running water, but a hand-crank Victrola, a bay window with a window seat for long, lazy afternoons and an expansive bedroom.

Rustic Chic at the Barn in Tivoli, NY

The open loft floor plan of this barn in upstate New York sleeps up to six, but be sure to come with a crew of close friends: Most of the rooms don’t have doors. Though it looks awfully rustic, the building has been recently renovated to stay toasty warm in cold weather. Luxuriate in the barn's hygge feel during in the winter and plan a return trip in the warmer months to take advantage of the outdoor shower, yoga deck and cedar picnic table by the pond.

Just eight miles away from Sugarbush Resort, this Vermont home would be a lovely place to stay during a ski trip. The owners painstakingly restored the farmhouse to its former glory by removing years of wallpaper, linoleum and plaster. Pro tip: The rocking chairs on the front porch make a lovely place to sit with a cup of coffee.

Yurt Rental on 80 Private Acres in Waterville, NY

A stay at this secluded yurt on 80 acres of forest couldn’t be more different than your day-to-day routine in New York City. Instead of crammed subway cars and busy sidewalks, you’ll enjoy wide open spaces with no one but a Portuguese water dog, two geese, four Angora goats and 15 ducks for company. The land offers plenty of hiking trails, tranquil views and intriguing history: It once served as the hangout for the Loomis Gang, a notorious band of outlaws in nearby Waterville.
