It’s easy to see the appeal of a trip to Vermont, a New England state known for its endless forests, covered bridges, and farmers markets. It’s also home to fantastic hiking trails and epic ski slopes, making it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Basically, you can’t go wrong with a vacation to this Northeastern state, but where you stay can make it even better – and Airbnb is the best place to look for interesting vacation rentals in Vermont.
Our list of the best Airbnbs in Vermont showcases a wide variety of the options there. To ensure their quality, we’ve only included Airbnbs with superhosts – owners with strong track records of providing a great guest experience. One of these properties has even earned Airbnb Plus status, meaning Airbnb has inspected it in person to verify its quality.
Private Fireplace Suite With Luxury Bath
Among the very best Vermont Airbnbs you can find is this private suite in a traditional farmhouse surrounded by beautiful mountains. Staying here in the town of Mendon, you won’t be far from the ski resorts of Killington and a section of the Appalachian Trail.
This charming country farmhouse’s guest suite includes a bedroom, living room, and private bathroom. Whether you’re here for skiing, hiking, or mountain biking, this suite is a great space to return to at the end of the day. The suite can host up to four guests using the queen bed in the bedroom and air mattresses in the living room.
Although the suite doesn’t feature a kitchen, superhost Josiane provides a gourmet breakfast every morning. You can also use the home’s Finnish cedar sauna for a fee, which could be the perfect way to cap off a busy day. Back in the guest suite, you have an indoor fireplace, cable TV, and Wi-Fi. Other amenities of the farmhouse include laundry facilities and a patio you can enjoy when it’s nice out.
Colorful Tiny Home in the Woods
One of the most adorable Airbnbs in Vermont is this little cottage that also happens to be quite practical. Located on the West River Trail just 2 miles from Jamaica State Park, it’s a superb base for kayaking, rafting, hiking, or skiing in the surrounding wilderness.
This tiny house is definitely big on value and color. You only need to look at the fluorescent front door to see it has personality. Step inside and you’ll also see that it has pretty much everything you need. It’s hard to believe that it can sleep five guests, but with a sofa bed and a bunk bed, it really can. You can even bring your pets along.
The cottage has a well-equipped kitchenette, which includes a refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, and coffee maker. There’s a proper bathroom as well, complete with a hot shower and a flushing toilet, ensuring a comfortable visit. The outdoor space is comfy too, with a pleasant porch, a charcoal grill, and a fire pit. Despite the rural feel of the setting, you also get Wi-Fi here.
Log Cabin Getaway Near Middlebury
This Airbnb near Middlebury, Vermont, makes the ideal nature retreat. Located just outside the town of Leicester, the cabin lies along the road between Rutland and Middlebury, giving you equal access to those towns’ restaurants, shops, and markets. However, your immediate surroundings are actually a forest, with walking trails, beaver dams, and plenty of wildlife.
The warm, wooden interior of this Airbnb cabin in Vermont is full of rustic charm. Despite its modest size, the cabin features two bedrooms, each with a double bed, plus a sofa bed in one of them. To ensure your comfort at any time of the year, it also has heating and a gas fireplace for winter and air conditioning for summer.
Perhaps even more useful is the full working kitchen. You get a gas range, microwave, and fridge to help you prepare meals, not to mention an outdoor charcoal grill. When it’s nice out, you can relax on the lawn and eat at the picnic table. While there isn’t a TV, the cabin does have Wi-Fi.
Off-the-Grid Cabin in the Green Mountains
You won’t find many cabins for rent in Vermont as secluded as this one. Found up in the Green Mountains right by the West Bolton Golf Club, this cabin has nature at its doorstep. Whether you want to hike, kayak, fish, or run away to a swimming hole, you’re covered here.
The first thing you need to know about this place is that you really are off the grid. It provides basics such as cookware and bedding, but not much modern technology. Instead of a bathroom, you have an outhouse and a solar-heated outdoor shower. A wood stove is the only source of heat inside, and you can’t drink the running water from the outdoor kitchen (though there is a nearby spring with potable water). There’s no electricity or refrigerator either, just a cooler.
What makes all of that worth it is the unspoiled peace and quiet you get from this private mountainside cabin. Cozy and rustic, it makes quite the romantic getaway, sleeping just two people with its queen bed. If you’re looking for a nature retreat or digital detox, this is the place for you.
Schoolhouse Farm Cottage With Sauna and Hot Tub
Those wondering what the best Airbnb rentals in Vermont look like need only admire this wonderful cottage, which enjoys views of the Green Mountains and some blissful countryside. The town of Bennington, which is roughly a 15-minute drive away, is where you’ll find groceries, shops, and restaurants.
There’s a lot to love about this renovated schoolhouse. For starters, the design manages to feel both rustic and modern. It’s also incredibly spacious for a cottage, with a huge living area and two bedrooms, not to mention a private deck. It can sleep up to six people, with queen beds in each room and a foldout couch in the living area. This makes the property great for families or groups looking to spend quality time together.
Behind the large dining table is the kitchen, complete with a range, oven, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. Even more impressive is the deck area, which is home to both a hot tub and a barrel sauna with beautiful panoramic views. Further amenities include Wi-Fi, a smart TV, a washer and dryer, and child care items such as stair gates and a travel crib.
Cozy Cabin and Sauna
When looking to rent a cabin in Vermont for a secluded getaway, you can’t do much better than this one. It’s safe to say this Airbnb is in a pretty rural part of the state: You’ll find a general store in the nearby town of East Calais, but if you want restaurants and bars, you’ll need to drive up to 30 minutes to Plainfield, Hardwick, or Montpelier.
With a Nordic design and forest surroundings, this cozy cabin makes for a romantic little hideaway. It has just the one queen-size futon for adults, but also a little loft sleeping space for a toddler or young child, which may work well for new parents. In addition to the kitchenette with a fridge and cookstove, superhost Selené provides tea, coffee, and light breakfast foods. Of course, with the fire pit and barbecue, you can also cook outdoors for a more classic camping experience.
If you’re looking for a remote cabin like this, you’ve probably already guessed that it doesn’t have many modern amenities. It does have electricity and a small heater for warmth, but no running water. Wi-Fi is available but somewhat unreliable – not that you’ll mind much with the fantastic private sauna at your disposal.
Peaceful Barn Loft Near Burlington
You don’t have to choose between home comforts and nature in this cozy Vermont Airbnb that gives you the best of both worlds. Found south of Hinesburg, it’s quite central to popular spots in western Vermont – within a 30-minute drive of both Burlington and Middlebury, and within easy reach of wineries, breweries, and ski resorts.
This is one of the most popular New England barns to rent, giving you a spacious loft to yourself. You’ll have plenty of privacy here, as the barn is separate from the main house. The guest suite includes a bedroom, private bathroom, and sitting area. Thanks to the bedroom’s queen bed and the single bed in the living area, it can comfortably fit three guests.
All this loft is missing is a kitchen, but it does have a minifridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, and a kettle for tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, Apple TV, and air conditioning.
Lovely Forest Treehouse Next to Stream
If you’re looking to try something different for your vacation, why not a treehouse Airbnb in Vermont? This unique tiny home in the woods is 3 miles from the village of Hardwick and surrounded by outdoor activity opportunities to keep you entertained.
There’s plenty to love about this cleverly designed treehouse that embraces a simpler way of life. The home is divided between the main floor, which consists of a living room and a kitchenette, and a sleeping loft above. Up in the loft is a double bed, so the treehouse is best suited to solo travelers and couples. While the cozy living area is nice, it’s hard to beat the sitting area out front, where you can listen to the trickle of the nearby stream while relaxing in the hammock or warming up by the fire pit.
There’s a minifridge, freezer, propane camp stove, and charcoal grill here, so you can cook for yourself easily enough, but it’s definitely closer to camping than luxury. That goes double for the bathroom facilities, with just a basic composting toilet. For a full bathroom with a shower, you’ll need to head to the main house. That’s also where you can use the Wi-Fi, as it doesn’t reach the treehouse.
Comfy Upstairs Apartment in Downtown Burlington
While there are loads of vacation apartments for rent in Vermont, not many have as much cozy charm as this one. This Airbnb in Burlington, Vermont, is a short walk from some of the best restaurants in the city, and the scenic shores of Lake Champlain are not much farther.
This Airbnb Plus has a studio layout and only enough sleeping space for two guests, but it feels more cozy than confined. In fact, it excels at comfort, with a memory foam mattress on the queen bed, a white noise machine, and air conditioning. Another convenience is the breakfast table and full kitchen with a stove, oven, and fridge, meaning you can self-cater during your stay.
To give you a little extra space, the apartment has a little covered porch area by the entrance, which makes a great place for a morning coffee or an evening drink. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, a smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime, and free parking.
Upscale Resort, Clean, Views, Walk to Kill. Mt.
Perhaps the most popular Airbnb in Killington Vermont, this resort condo is an ideal place to base yourself. Found in the Killington Ski Area, this resort accommodation offers superb views of the Green Mountains and enjoys easy access to ski lifts and trails for both hiking and mountain biking.
With this studio condo it’s possible to sleep up to four guests as the room has a king bed and a queen-sized sofa bed. Don’t expect much privacy though given the layout of the room, meaning it’s well suited to couples or parents with younger children. Off the sleeping area, there’s the living room and dining table, centered around a wood-burning fireplace. In the corner is the full kitchen, complete with a stove, oven, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher.
One of the main benefits of staying in this condo is that it has all the amenities of an all-inclusive resort. Guests can use the outdoor pool and the indoor pool when it’s open, as well as the shared laundry facilities. In the room you also have a 4K TV with multiple streaming services and Wi-Fi, plus a crib and high chair for little ones.
Private Yurt Refuge in the Woods
Remote Vermont Airbnbs are quite popular among travelers hoping to enjoy the state’s wilderness, and this yurt is perfect for that. Located between Hartland and Woodstock, the yurt offers extremely peaceful surroundings while being only a 15-minute drive from either town. Just a little farther out, you’ll find the Saskadena Six Ski Area and other places to ski.
In case you’re unfamiliar, a yurt is basically one big common area under a round tent. Rather than rooms, it’s divided into a bedroom space, a living space, and a kitchen area. Thanks to this yurt’s size, there’s some flexibility in how many people it can accommodate. It has a queen bed in the bedroom space and two queen-size futons in the living area, allowing up to six guests.
Despite its humble design, the yurt is full of comforts and conveniences. It boasts a fully equipped kitchen with a gas range and stove and a dishwasher, a clawfoot tub in the bathroom, and a large wood stove for heating. Other amenities include high-speed Wi-Fi, a thermostat, and a gas grill on the patio.
Tiny Timber-Frame Cottage
It’s hard to imagine a cozier little getaway than this cute Airbnb in Vermont. The house is a little to the north of Putney, a small town near the New Hampshire border, where you’ll find a farmers market, a winery, a diner, and plenty of small-town charm.
You’ll be impressed with how much superhost Andrea has fit into this tiny house. The loft space fitting both a king and queen bed is a minor miracle itself, and somehow there’s space left over for a living area, bathroom, and kitchen. There’s really everything you need here, even a fridge and stovetop in the kitchen – not to mention comforts like air conditioning and Wi-Fi.
Outside the cottage, you can relax in the lawn chairs or cook on the barbecue grill, surrounded by nature. Then there’s the fire pit with wood provided, which makes a nice hangout spot when the sun goes down.
Uniquely Sculpted Tiny House
To try something new, consider a getaway in this curiously designed tiny house. It’s in the town of Pownal in the southwest corner of Vermont, a short drive from the larger Williamstown in Massachusetts – where you have dining options, places to get coffee, and several art museums to visit.
Easily the most notable thing about this Vermont Airbnb is its peculiar, specially designed exterior. The building was actually made by a group of sculptors, which explains its carefully shaped walls. The interior continues this motif while still looking like the cozy tiny home it is. Within its open layout is a nook with a queen bed, a living area, a breakfast table, and a kitchen area.
The home uses every bit of its limited space to its full potential. Just look to the kitchen, where superhost Mark has managed to fit a minifridge, stove, and microwave so that you can prepare meals during your stay. The house also provides Wi-Fi, a washer and dryer, smart locks, and heating for the winter.

Located just down the road from Lake Raponda in the state’s south, it’s a great option if you plan to spend your vacation swimming, kayaking, or fishing. Just five minutes away by car is the town of Wilmington, where you’ll find a bunch of restaurants.
You’ll get the real cabin experience here, with a light-filled interior and windows looking out at the woods. The cabin can sleep two people in its queen bed, and pets are also welcome for a fee. Beyond the bedroom is a big, open living room with a couch by the wood-burning fireplace and a large dining table. The kitchen provides everything you need to cook, including a gas stove, oven, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher.
Of course, with a cabin like this, the outdoor hangout space is just as important as what lies indoors.
