New Hampshire, at least to me, is one of the most underrated states to explore. Within a 2-hour radius you can drive from the city, to the lakes, to the beach, to the stunning White Mountains region.
The White Mountains are a thing to behold. With over 800,000 acres of natural landscape, thriving wildlife, and the highest mountain elevations in the northeast, it’s every explorer and nature lover’s dream.
Nestled deep within this national forest are some incredible Airbnb cabin rentals, hidden gems that will offer you the perfect rustic stay in nature. Here, the mountains aren’t just in your backyard – they’re your home! Explore these 14 amazing Airbnb cabins in the White Mountains that are guaranteed to make you fall in love with the region.

This chalet stay in Bretton Woods will have you feeling like you’ve transported to the Norweigan wilderness.

This cabin in North Conway is perfectly situated at the base of Cathedral Ledge, a rock cliff lookout with incredible views of the White Mountains.
For those who aren’t exactly looking to rough it, this is your spot. Designed by a local interior designer, this cabin is decked out from floor to ceiling with ‘mountain chic’ decor. This is definitely one of the coolest cabins in New Hampshire for your getaway.
It’s got wall-sized windows, a hammock chair, a full kitchen, and even a Smart TV equipped with Netflix! You might be so comfy you’ll forget you’re even camping.
Just a ten-minute drive to North Conway Village and Attitash, this cabin has a cozy open layout and a giant cast iron wood stove as its centerpiece.

Looking for a large, modern home to rent in the White Mountains? Latitude 44 in Bethlehem is your spot. It’s got a really unique floor-to-ceiling pine interior and wraparound deck alongside an expansive yard.
The inside is spacious, with a leather coach and flatscreen in the living room and a fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. But the coolest feature? A cozy workspace loft overlooking the rest of the home.
Look up ‘rustic’ in the dictionary and you might find this log cabin listed. It’s got everything that makes cabin camping special: a cozy fireplace, an upstairs loft, homey decor, and a private babbling brook right outside. But this cabin isn’t behind on the times either. The Keurig coffee drinkers, Netflix bingers, hot tub loungers, and indoor-plumbing seekers will feel right at home.
This intimate A-frame cabin nestled among the pines is straight out of a fairytale. As a brick path illuminated by a Victorian lamppost leads you inside, you’ll discover a home designed for comfort, easy living, and those with a deep appreciation for the great outdoors.

Location, location, location is prime for this White Mountains Airbnb cabin! The Franconia Wilderness Lodge is dreamily situated off a winding dirt road, adjacent to the beautiful Gale River.

Ski, hike, sip a morning coffee on the back porch, and enjoy a slower pace of life during your stay.
This aptly named adorable red cabin has been touted by previous renters as very clean, primely located near endless winter adventures, and incredibly cozy. A highlight is the south-facing sunroom that heats up on sunny days and provides great views.
I would rent out this Airbnb in a heartbeat, solely based on its unique yurt design and dreamy pine spiral staircase leading to the upstairs loft. But there’s so much more to love. You’ll also enjoy a private beach, a crystal-clear river for tubing, and walking trails along ponds and wetlands.
This yurt-inspired cabin is also modern, with an equipped kitchen, Smart TV, and a stone patio with a built-in firepit. You probably won’t find anything like it in New England.

This gorgeous house is situated right on a large pond. If you love lounging by the water, loads of privacy, and backyard access to good hikes, you just might want to stay in this peaceful house. Oh, and it’s only 2 minutes from Attitash, one of the best ski resorts in NH!
