Traveling in 2020? Please check with each state/destination for its current COVID-19 guidelines, as these are constantly changing and the most accurate, up-to-date information may not be reflected here.
Call me biased, but I don’t think there’s any destination quite like Vermont. And when it comes to amazing places to visit in New England, Vermont is always the first one I recommend.
Why? Simply because it is a beautiful, peaceful, unique little state with so much to enjoy.
We’ve got lots of information on the site to convince you of WHY you need to visit Vermont, and all the things there are to do here. But if you’re already convinced and just looking for an AWESOME place to stay: this is the post you’ll want to read: 8 adorable Airbnbs in Vermont.
For some, a real getaway involves totally unplugging. This could mean leaving your cell phone and laptop at home, or it could mean heading to an off-the-grid cabin in Vermont’s Green Mountains. If that sounds like bliss, this property is precisely what you’re looking for.
This Vermont AirBnb is nestled away in the woods on 20 acres. There’s plenty to explore in the immediate region and a bit further afield. The cabin is just minutes away from hiking, swimming, skiing, golf, and more, including Vermont’s Long Trail.
On AirBnb cabins are really popular, but not everyone will be interested in the off-grid lifestyle. This place is suited to only the most adventurous and intrepid travelers who really want to have a getaway in nature.
A solar shower, propane cookstove, and a wood stove will take care of your basic needs. The cabin is rustic but beautiful, and honestly, we’re pretty sure we want to book this place ASAP!
This stunning log treehouse in Vermont is New England glamping at its best. This space is designed as pristine and serene and it looks absolutely wonderful.

Vermont Schoolhouse Farm Cottage with Sauna + Hot Tub – Shaftsbury, VT
Want to do some glamping in New England?
Located in pretty Southern Vermont, you genuinely cannot go wrong with this magazine-worthy AirBnb. A newly-renovated, historic schoolhouse overlooks the host’s sprawling organic farm (how quintessentially Vermont is that?)

This awesome property is not far from the towns of Manchester and Bennington, both of which offer a lot to do and see in all seasons.
Lakefront home w/ water access- Burlington, VT
Speaking of lakefront homes, if you’re traveling to Burlington, a stay on or near the water is sure to make your experience extra memorable. Lake Champlain is absolutely gorgeous, and such a gem of the Burlington area.
Here’s another lakefront property that can accommodate up to 8 guests. This Burlington lakefront Airbnb is technically located in Colchester, just north of Burlington. It’s right off the waterfront bike path, which is definitely a bonus if you’re into cycling, or if you enjoy an evening walk along a beautiful shoreline.
There’s so much to love about this property, and I think it would make an amazing family retreat. There is a foosball table for the kids, a private deck/patio with grill where everyone can enjoy the lakeviews, and many other amenities. Check it out for sure.

With massive windows, a Finnish steam sauna, and 2 stone fireplaces, that’s just the start of all that you’ll enjoy at this unique, magical property.
Fairlee is just over the border from New Hampshire, so it’s a convenient location, although you may not want to leave this hidden gem. Be sure to read the whole listing on Airbnb as there are many important details to know before booking.
