The Coolest Airbnb Stays in Upstate New York

Pictured: Cozy Retreat in the Trees

Upstate New York is packed full of beautiful views, quaint small towns, awesome lakes and so much more. In exploring this awesome state, I have come to appreciate the uniqueness of Airbnb. Beyond your typical hotel, Airbnb stays offer a whole new dimension to travel and tourism. Each stay is an experience in and of itself and is guaranteed to make its mark on your travel memories.

The idea for this post began with a list containing 50 of my saved Airbnb wish list stays, that I (painfully) narrowed down to 15- which was no small feat. Each stay I want to share with you has something uniquely wonderful to share, and all are hosted by Airbnb recognized and trusted ‘Superhosts’.

You can also check out my past blog post “The Post-Quarantine Adventure Everyone Should Try”. In this post I explained the beauty in planning impromptu trips entirely based off of an Airbnb favorite, and the excitement you’ll get from finding a new favorite small town.

It is worth noting that my following favorites are listed in no particular order…

1. Ultra Luxury Treehouse. Cable Bridge and Waterfall
