Here in Los Angeles, we’re about as far from that dreaded bomb cyclone weather as we can get. And while we can’t complain about 70-plus degree days in January, we have to admit the climate leaves us longing for a legitimate winter experience—one in which we’re sitting in a cozy cabin in front of a fireplace, wearing all the new pieces we just bought from epic seasonal sales (because the fashion world is also already done with winter). Airbnb is the perfect place to daydream about our next getaway, and we’ve been spending an embarrassing amount of free time on the site lately as we hunt down ideal escape pads—from A-frames in the woods to vintage trailers with insane mountain views—that are great for a solo excursion, a romantic getaway or a memorable vacay with your entire crew. Scroll through to find the ones we’re currently lusting after and then start planning your trip.
This A-frame cabin in western Sonoma County is modest in size, but it just might be the rustic and romantic getaway you've been dreaming about this winter. The rental includes a stylishly renovated interior complete with a freestanding fireplace and fully stocked bookshelves.
If you're traveling with a crew, this three-bedroom barn can accommodate up to six guests with modern amenities (wood-burning stove, Sub-Zero fridge, organic bedding and rain shower to name a few) and cozy-rustic vibes.
Those in search of more modern accommodations will adore this lakefront cabin. With six beds and room for up to 10 guests, the sustainably built home is perfect for groups who want to ski, sled and ice-skate. But gathering around the fireplace with cocktails, board games and a view of the great outdoors works, too.
Live out your Hobbit fantasies (it's a thing) in this underground earth home. Tucked into the scenic Columbia River Gorge, the one-bedroom rental features rustic decor (a custom cordwood floor and metalwork), circular windows and doors and a seriously unforgettable view.
This bungalow is perfect for winter sports enthusiasts. Decked out in modern-Western decor, the two-bedroom condo comes equipped with Casper mattresses, vaulted ceilings, a shared tub and a view of Lone Peak where you might even spot a moose in its natural habitat.
This two-acre property is an original carriage house built in the early 1920s. Surrounded by nature (hiking trails, creeks, plenty of visible stars), the one-bedroom rental offers a 1960s typewriter and a record player for vintage aficionados, plus not one but two fireplaces.
This light-filled cottage offers total peace and serenity (you have to take a ferry to get there) as well as a gorgeous interior made of natural, sustainable materials. Nature buffs will adore checking out the surrounding flora and fauna here.
Ski bunnies who don't mind close quarters will love this vintage trailer's close proximity to all of Taos Ski Valley's outdoor activities, not to mention it's surrounded by breathtaking mountain views. Both the decor and the appliances have been updated, and guests can enjoy an outdoor fire pit and deck for some epic stargazing.
