This Vermont Airbnb Comes with Gorgeous Mountain Views and a Glass-Walled Sauna
Located in the Green Mountains, this charming vacation rental has us dreaming of fall.
Fall is just around the corner, which means we’re already dreaming of hot cider, brisk air, and leaf peeping galore. Luckily, there are tons of incredible Airbnbs in New England that offer the quintessential autumn experience—right down to the vistas of technicolor foliage. Just check out this charming renovated schoolhouse in Vermont, which is tailor-made to help you (pumpkin) spice up your life this fall.
The home looks out over the owners’ fourth-generation, 270-acre family farm in the heart of Vermont. Guests are rewarded with views of the Green Mountains from the back deck and private yard (you might even spot an occasional wandering lamb). Soak up the scenery as you prepare dinner on the propane grill or roast marshmallows around the fire pit.
Inside, the house is rustic but extremely bright and modern. The vaulted living room would surely make Joanna Gaines swoon, with original hardwood floors, white shiplap walls, and cozy decor like a cast iron stove and printed throw pillows. There are also books and a smart TV to help you unwind.
The kitchen is appropriately farmhouse-chic, and we can easily imagine spending a few long afternoons there. There are plenty of vintage appliances on floating shelves, as well as distressed wood cabinets filled with mason jars and ceramic mugs if you want to soak in the fall vibes with cider. The hosts keep the pantry stocked with basic spices and baking staples, so you can definitely whip up some cookies or sourdough on a rainy afternoon.
There are two bedrooms in the house (in addition to a queen-size sleeper sofa): one king-size bedroom downstairs, and one queen-size lofted bedroom you can reach via a spiral staircase off the living room. Both rooms come with heavy blankets, handmade chairs, and framed photos of life on the farm. There is also a soothingly decorated full bathroom for all guests to share.
Of course, you may choose to take your bathing activities outside once you see the star amenities of the property: an elevated deck with a hot tub, outdoor shower, and Scandinavian-style sauna. The deck is just 20 feet from the front door of The Schoolhouse, so you can easily turn every day of your vacation into a makeshift spa day. The barrel sauna has an entire wall made of glass, so you don’t have to choose between detoxing and leaf peeping. (And if you can’t visit during the fall, the hot tub and sauna are still available to use during the winter months.)
The schoolhouse can fit up to six guests, and it is currently listed at $342 per night. The listing has a near-perfect rating of 4.99, with reviewers describing it as “incredibly relaxing and peaceful,” “cozy and tastefully decorated,” and “a quiet respite amongst the sheep.”
