Top 17 Vermont Airbnbs for Fall Foliage

There’s no doubt New England is one of the world’s best regions for fall foliage, but when it comes to the best of the best, Vermont takes the prize. Every year, the native maple trees and others in this largely forested state put on an incredible display of golden yellows, brilliant oranges, and fiery reds. From postcard-perfect scenes like covered bridges framed by autumn leaves and lakes that reflect their dazzling colors, there are dramatic scenes across the state. By mid-September, the color starts to appear across the north, moving progressively in October, with these Airbnbs placing you in the heart of it all while offering opportunities for all sorts of fun activities.
