Vermont—not many places exude such classic fall ambiance like this stunning state. Vibrant leaves change dramatically when the weather takes a cold crisp turn, and lakes, ponds and mountains are the most gorgeous accents to this natural show. Vermont is homey, and there’s an abundance of quintessential towns, eateries with the best waffles and syrup, and of course cozy cabins and cottages that make for the coziest home base during your fall trip.

Skiing, breweries, and loads of other activities are nearby, however, this eclectic treehouse remains tucked away in the woods. Cozily constructed, the treehouse has plenty of natural finishes, in addition to historic ones, like windows from an old local schoolhouse. One of the best Airbnbs in New England, the sitting area underneath the structure, where you could easily doze off listening to the trickling of the stream.
Bohemian vibes overflow from this micro cabin, which is also inspired by Nordic homes. A top secluded Airbnb in the U.S., its exterior silhouette is both adorable and interesting, and inside is colorful yet clean. To round out the international theme, there is a stunning finish sauna on site to detox guests from the inside out. Located amongst the Green Mountains, the fall foliage is everything one would expect.
There is nothing like a traditional log cabin sitting amongst orange and yellow trees. A wood stove keeps the interior toasty warm, and nights can be best spent snuggling in the loft. Rustic wood carries throughout the interiors, and the perfect country kitchen awaits. You might just decide you feel like whipping up a fresh apple pie.
Perhaps you’re looking for something a little brighter, and a touch more contemporary. This Airbnb Plus sits on an organic farm, and Lake Champlain! So it goes without saying that the views here are outrageous, in a good way. The modern furnishings are a stunning contrast to the surrounding tree line and water views. Fall at the lake—breathtaking.
It’s seriously all about the trees here, as this listing is a treehouse, and it has live edge railing (live edge means logs that still have the bark on them were used), stump sink pedestals, and a staircase that looks like it just grew through the center of the dwelling. Drink in views of the pond, while soaking in the fragrant cedar hot tub. It’s also one of the top Airbnbs in Vermont.
Five stars for creativity! This abode is unusually spectacular and appears to be something that belongs along the cliffs of Santorini, Greece. But in fact, this one-of-a-kind space is amongst the foliage of Vermont. In the 1980s, sculptors crafted the plaster walls by hand, meaning this place is truly unique. Since its recent renovation, you’ll find a clean-cut appeal inside.
Located in the Green Mountain National Forest, the oddly shaped modern home emerges unmistakably. Plenty of fun attributes come along with the rental, from games to a sauna and jacuzzi. It’s a great place to wind down after a day of skiing (if coming in the winter), but in the fall it would be after a day of exploring nearby streams and trails.
An authentic cabin experience awaits in this humble log dwelling. The decor stays consistent with the mountain flare of Vermont, while still feeling very polished and cozy. Warm yourself by the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa, after a day of hiking and exploring. Maples envelop the home, and the rich hues are best enjoyed on the large front porch.
Any season, this authentically crafted artesian cabin is a wonderful place to call home for a few days. Being newly constructed, you get both the benefits of a refined space, and something that feels true to mountain life. From the hot tub, guests can peer toward the Green Mountains, which roll dramatically in the distance.
Now that’s close to the water! Formerly an old boathouse, this small rental has been luxuriously brought up to date, to be one heck of a waterfront escape. A blend of both eclectic and rustic come together on the interior, and you could just sit in bed all day and take in the water views from the windows. Outside, a deck extends over the edge and is the perfect place to grill up a meal.
A family with up to 13 people can stay at the spacious rental, so that’s a major perk. But the selling point is the views that stretch as far as the eye can see, thanks to an impressive elevation. Inside, the home is traditional and slightly contemporary, so it’s easy to settle in and feel quite comfortable. But we have a feeling you may never leave the deck.
Vaulted ceiling‘s with exposed beams, a huge kitchen, plenty of plush sleeping space, and game tables the whole family can enjoy. Sounds pretty ideal, right? Trees that turn different fiery shades already surround the rental, so leaf-peeping is right at your fingertips. However, there are plenty of nearby places to explore, like Vermont’s tallest peak! Then wind down with a cup of hot cider by that beautiful stone fireplace, after a day of adventure.
