Renovated Airstream on a working farm

You can also walk around the farm and get a glimpse of the cute roaming animals, which makes it a great getaway for animal lovers.

Modern A-frame with retro touches
Running Springs, California

4 guests/$267 per night


We love a good cabin, especially when it has a modern vibe. Originally built in 1960 and renovated in 2020, this rental is an incredible spot for you and your partner to enjoy some time alone in the woods with a luxurious twist. It features an open layout and a spacious loft where the bedroom is located, plus floor-to-ceiling windows to appreciate the stunning views throughout your stay. Outside, there’s a huge deck with a grill and sitting area to enjoy your morning coffee, meals, and evening (or daytime) cocktails.


What guests say: "This little A-Frame gem is perfectly tucked away into the mountain…not too far, but not too close to the town side. What you see is what you get—the home is as pictured and it was beautifully redone with just the right amount of modern touches."

Charleston cottage straight out of "The Notebook"

4 guests/$205 per night


Forget oceanfront and lakefront—marshfront defines the romance at this idyllic, recently renovated cottage that could easily be a set from The Notebook. The home has everything you need for romantic days and nights in, including a gourmet kitchen, outdoor dining, two hammocks by the marsh, and a fire pit. But if you do decide to venture out, you’ll have access to a golf cart that you can use to cruise around the property, and you’ll also be close to King Street, the beach, and some of Charleston’s best restaurants and shopping.


What guests say: “Rachel was an outstanding host. She was responsive, communicative, and collaborative. On top of that, her place is magical. The decor is spectacular, the backyard is dreamy, and the location is ideal. I had the best time in Charleston because I got to come back to this place every day. As I write this review. I’m kicking myself because others will discover this gem. Don’t think twice about renting this place. Just do it! You won’t regret it.”

What guests say: “If you are looking for perfection, this is the place for you!! Every detail has been thought out and executed. Exceptional location, scenery, furnishings, bedding, fireplace, hot tub, games... you name it, the ledge has it.

Castle-esque guest house with stunning views

2 guests/$375 per night


Come for a concert at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, stay for the vistas of Bear Creek, nearby hiking trails, proximity to shopping and restaurants, and the fact that you’ll literally feel like the king/queen of the mountain. This studio-style guest house sits atop a mountain and has 360-degree views, a fire pit with comfy seating, a hot tub perfect for sunset enjoyment, private seating areas, a horseshoe pit, and a friendly dog who lives on the property. But seriously: those views!

Kitschy '70s-inspired honeymoon suite
Idyllwild-Pine Cove, California

2 guests/$224 per night


Sure, you could go to a secluded cabin in the woods and hold hands by the fire pit while roasting marshmallows—or you could go back to a time when romance was defined by heart-shaped tubs, mirrored ceilings, and the sloshing of a waterbed. You’ll get exactly that at this “Honeymoon Suite” at the Hicksville Pines Bud & Breakfast, plus the added bonus of shag carpet. After you’ve soaked in the tub and tested out the bed, you can meet other “honeymooners” in the 24-hour rec room, where you’ll find arcade games, ping pong, darts, shuffleboard, a jukebox, and an outdoor area with a hot tub and firepit. It’s unclear if you need to leave your keys in a bowl upon arrival.


What guests say: “No honeymoon necessary to enjoy this suite! Although it certainly has all the right touches for a romantic getaway. Hicksville is an absolute gem, and we were lucky enough to see it sparkle in the glow of snow-capped trees and mountains.”

Glass house in Joshua Tree perfect for stargazing

4 guests/$1,068 per night


If you’ve ever wanted to be an exhibitionist without actually having anyone see you, this mid-century ranch house with sliding glass doors in every room is your chance to live out the fantasy. The serene hideaway sits at the foot of a mountain and is surrounded by desert and lots of wild animals, like jackrabbits and real-life roadrunners, and the lack of light pollution means you’ll have incredible stargazing opportunities. Soak in the views at the multiple outdoor living areas, as well as an outdoor shower, fire pit, and saltwater hot tub.


What guests say: “This place was absolutely gorgeous! This house should be featured in Dwell magazine for its awesome architectural details and interior decoration. If you want to feel like being at a high-end spa or a resort, this is it! No need to drive to Joshua Tree to see the stars. You can be in the jacuzzi and see plenty of stars. I highly recommend this place to everyone."

Modern desert studio with full spa access

2 guests/$575 per night


The desert is the perfect place for a romantic getaway: Think dramatic landscapes, endless skies, warm days, and cool nights. Throw in a full spa experience with a hot tub, steam room, dry sauna, and saltwater pool, and you may never want to leave. That’s what you’ll get at this modern studio, located in a historic building with original touches like adobe brick walls and a kiva fireplace. But it’s really everything outside—including that aforementioned spa—that makes this Airbnb a dream destination. It sits on over five acres of natural, red-rock beauty, has access to over 15 hiking trails, and is just over a mile to downtown Sedona. You can also add on experiences like reiki healing and wine tastings.


What guests say: “The setting is superb. The views from our studio windows and the balcony looked out across the Red Rocks and are absolutely beautiful. The facilities on the property are as described and, again, are lovely. In addition, the attention to detail provided by the hosts made this a week that my wife and I will remember forever. We do hope to return one day.”

Rustic lakefront cabin in Alaska

5 guests/$179 per night


If your idea of romance is getting away from it all, and your idea of getting away from it all is escaping to the middle of nowhere, then this cozy cabin (one of four on 15 acres) in Alaska will sweep you off of your feet. Located in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula, you’ll hike to the cabin to enjoy solitude, a lake with access to kayaks and rowboats (what’s more romantic than a rowboat?), a wood-fired lakeside hot tub, and an outdoor fireplace. What you won’t have is cell service, electricity, or running water, but there is propane for the lights and a stove for heat (plus snuggling!). They say, “All you need is love.” Why not find out if it’s true?


What guests say: “A magical place! We loved our three nights here. Thank you for the opportunity. We particularly enjoyed kayaking, sitting on the deck and taking in the views, and keeping the indoor fire burning. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed. Overall a wonderful, relaxing stay and a taste of ‘real’ Alaska.”

Window-lined cabin with suspended bed

2 guests/$205 per night


The highlight of this “Naturalist Boudoir” cabin in the woods is definitely the bed suspended by ropes beneath a chandelier, but other perks include a record player, outdoor shower, hot tub, fire pit, and seating area by the water (keep an eye out for gators). If nothing else, a stay here will give you a valid excuse to use the phrase,“If the suspended-from-ropes bed’s a-rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’!”


What guests say: “This way exceeded my expectations! The cabin is beautiful and so secluded. The entire property was so well maintained. Cabin had everything we needed to cook and did not even need to leave for the weekend. Breakfast included was so nice! We definitely needed this romantic getaway! We will be back!”

What guests say: “The Cottage is amazing! This is our second stay here for a relaxing weekend. It is very private and right on a small lake. The hot tub views, the lake, such beautiful scenery to enjoy. All the perks, such as heated bathroom floors and towel racks, are really nice. Very cozy feeling with the gas fireplace!
