Cozy cabins near NYC on Airbnb

Head up to Neversink, NY for a hideaway that'll soothe your soul. This private, park-like property has a koi pond and decks to sit on to look over the lake. The cabin itself has two bedrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, views of nature, and modern amenities. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, helpful if you're traveling with the kids or another couple, and there's a large walk-in rainshower in the primary bathroom. The best part is that while it feels secluded, this Airbnb is just 15 minutes from the town of Liberty and 25 minutes from the town of Livingston Manor, with multiple cafes, vintage retail, and local shops. $201 per night.

Who'd have thunk water and fire would make such good bedfellows? Because they sure go perfectly when it comes to the wood-fired hot tub in which you'll be spending the majority of your stay at this verdant forest location just under three hours from NYC. Wonderfully secluded, this 1960s cabin is decked floor-to-ceiling in amber wood tones, there's a super cute kitchen, cozy double bedroom and a view to die for that stretches out across a sweeping lawn into the trees beyond. This Big Indian Mountain spot is especially great for lovers of the outdoors, who will appreciate the hiking and stargazing on offer, the fire pit, grill and (extra) outdoor shower. $314 per night.


Just minutes from Phoenicia, this secluded spot offers plenty of options on how to spend your time away. It's near great restaurants, skiing, hiking, tubing, fishing, swimming holes, and the Village of Woodstock. The cabin has a large wrap-around deck to enjoy in the mornings with coffee or to stargaze from at night. Pantherkill Creek babbles right by the cabin, so you'll have a calming atmosphere to relax in. Visitors have access to the fire pit, too, in case you want s'mores time.

This special treehouse cabin is located on a 60-acre nature sanctuary fill of pines. The cabin is two stories with a second story balcony, a reading nook, sleeping loft at the top of a ladder, and a kitchenette. It's a semi-rustic cabin on wheels, which has electricity, heat and a sawdust toilet, but it has a shared, detached full bathroom with a shower. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom, you'll be glad to know the rest of the space is very private. The property has a half-mile of river frontage, hiking trails, a volleyball court, fire pits, two spring-fed ponds, free-range chickens, friendly rescue mutts and more. $141 per night.


Sitting net to a spring-fed brook in the Delaware Water Gap, this cabin is just a few-minutes drive from trails, state forests and recreational areas but you could be completely content with staying home and grilling on bluestone terrace right outside the cabin. At 100 years old, the home is outfitted with modern conveniences but has a big stone, wood-burning fireplace, cozy furniture, two bedrooms, and a comfortable kitchen and bathroom. The porch is where it's at, though. Glassed in with its own separate baseboard heat, it overlooks a shallow babbling brook. If you love the idea of a late-night campfire and s'mores, it has two outdoor fire pits! $139 per night.

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. $232 per night.


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 hiking, kicking back with a book in one of the hammock chairs feels oh-so-good. $169 per night

Known as Camp Stardust, this cabin with massive windows provides jaw-dropping views of Piseco Lake, native wildlife and of course, twinkling stars. In the winter, when a winter storm hits, sitting inside the house feels like being inside a snowglobe—an exceptionally cozy snowglobe. Past visitors have seen otters, loons, bears and even the occasional moose. $215 per night.


This renovated 1920s fishing cottage with original wood floors and river-rock fireplace is a perfect place to refresh yourself. You can step through the double French doors from your private cabin and follow a forest trail down to the river or easily walk to the bridge that spans the Esopus creek. Best yet, it's a cozy respite near multiple ski resorts and just 20 minutes from Woodstock. $135 per night

It's rare that you get woodland privacy on almost an acre of land within easy reach of shops, restaurants and bars, but this beautifully finished little cabin offers just that. Located five minutes from Phoenicia and 15 minutes from Hunter Mountain, visitors to this spot get convenience and moutain activities such as hiking, fishing, stargazing and skiing – the best of both worlds. Amenities within the two-bed cabin include a lovely old stone fireplace, selection of boardgames and fully equipped kitchen. $256 per night.


Nestled between the woods and a meadow on a five-acre property, this four-bedroom woodsy cabin has a stone, wood-burning fireplace to play games beside and cozy up next to in the cold months. Each room is comfortable but the master bedroom has a large balcony, perfect for drinking your morning coffee or star-gazing. You can explore its three acres of woods or venture further out into the Catskill Mountains nearby or go skiing at the Belleayre Ski Center in the winter. Plus, the home is only 20 minutes to the Phoenicia Diner and Esopus Creek. $264 per night.


This charming cabin on 3.5 acres near the Ashokan Reservoir and Catskill Park is all you need for a weekend getaway with one bedroom and one bathroom, a full kitchen, and a living room with a piano. It also has an amazing record collection you can listen to on a record player. The Ashokan reservoir is good for walking and bird watching since it has a bald eagle sanctuary. Stone Ridge, Boiceville, Woodstock, and New Paltz are nearby for shopping and fine dining. $113 per night

This gorgeous stay, which is on top of Talcott Mountain, has storybook vibes and two fireplaces. Well, why just have one when you can have two? The two-story stone cabin is a studio with a kitchen, full bath, and a stone fireplace as well as two stone patios, an outdoor fireplace, an in-ground pool and a basketball court with a fenced-in yard. It's on the property of another home, but that one is a steep walk away. It's nearby to hiking/walking trails, a winery, movie theatres, restaurants, and shopping in quaint New England towns. Bliss. $511 per night.


It might be time to seriously consider snuggling up in this little cabin across the street from Candlewood Lake and behind Squantz Pond State Park. With tons of natural light and plenty of outdoor space, this spot is perfect for a quiet respite. Inside, is a big comfy couch, vaulted ceilings and wooden walls. The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you need to cook, including ingredients to make s’mores in the fire pit. The hosts even provide robes and slippers for you to use during your stay, as well as shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Better yet, there’s a hot tub ready for your use and kayaks for more adventurous visitors. Sounds pretty lush to us. $182 per night.

After being cooped up in our apartments for almost four months, New Yorkers are craving a change of scenery. And while we can't really travel that many places right now (since the EU has banned us), we're looking closer to home for possible getaways. 

Airbnb is one option people are using to get out of their respective Groundhog Day-like situations. Staying in a new neighborhood can help cure that wanderlust for a bit and make you feel like a tourist in your own city.

RECOMMENDED: The best Airbnb New York City rentals  

And while it's best to stay at home right now, Airbnb does has an optional protocol, including a 40-page manual on proper cleaning practices, that suggests keeping at least 24 hours between rentals, among other things. So if you're going to rent an Airbnb, make sure to find out how the host is sanitizing the space and if masks are required.

We also highly recommend booking an entire place, not a room, as the former will demand less human interaction. And bring your own cleaning supplies to do a quick clean after check in.

All that being said, there are some incredible lodging options across the city worth checking into, from a houseboat stay to one with full skyline views and a private, outdoor cinema experience. Below are some of our favorites.

  • Things to do

For someplace to stay with a little more character than the typical hotel, book one of the best Airbnbs in New York City. This list includes something for every budget and neighborhood, from Brooklyn Airbnbs to modern Tribeca lofts. Not to mention every sense of style, ranging from sleek minimalism to boho chic to mid-century modern. Whether you’re a first-time visitor coming to town to see all the top New York attractions or a lifelong city dweller in need of a relaxing staycation, one of the coolest Airbnbs in New York City would make an ideal crashpad.
