Foto: sourceAirbnbWith loads of leaf peeping, craft beer, and cider, towns in the Hudson River Valley offer the perfect fall weekend escape. Popular places like Beacon, Hudson, Rhinebeck, and other neighboring areas are accessible from New York City by train or bus, eliminating the need for a car. We looked for top-rated unique Airbnb rentals in the Hudson Valley available on a weekend next month, ranging from $139 to $315 per night. For New Yorkers looking for a quick weekend getaway this fall, the biggest foil can sometimes be just getting where you want to go. Many urbanites don’t own a car, or feel comfortable renting one. Problematic, if the dreamy place you’re eyeing to bunk is especially remote. Fortunately, there are plenty of affordable and unique Upstate New York Airbnb rentals within a three hour drive that aren’t too hard to reach. But, if you really want to make things easy, some of the best gems are located right along major transit lines in the Hudson River Valley. Hudson Valley towns like Beacon, Cold Spring, Hudson, and others are all loaded with stunning Airbnbs available to rent next month on, yes, a weekend. Major New York City train and bus lines reach them in around two hours or less, meaning you can easily leave after work on Friday – no OOO necessary. If you want to skip town without stressing over how to get there, these Airbnb listings are all a short walk, or few minutes’ drive from the local train station. Popular cities like Beacon or Hudson do typically price on the higher end, as there’s not only increased demand, but more to do in town, too. To ensure your money is well spent, I set the following parameters to identify truly unique properties:Airbnb listing is for the entire home (no awkward kitchen conversations with your host while sipping morning coffee).

If you beat me to booking this one, enjoy the exposed brick, sleek wood, and mod design, in addition to fun perks like a private upstairs lounge and courtyard. Spend a crisp fall evening outside with your beverage of choice, and bites from Talbott & Arding Cheese & Provisions, my local pick for cheese, produce and fresh-baked treats.Rating: 4.82Hudson apartment, $267Foto: What I wish my living room at home looked like.sourceAirbnbBook this apartment for $267 per weekend night This Hudson Airbnb is immaculate.

With two bedrooms, the price is quite affordable when split between two couples. Writes one review, “Annabel’s place was a dream. Beautiful, comfortable, convenient to everything and with lots of outdoor space to get fresh air. Oh, and that record player – lounging around listening to Nina Simone was everything.

Many original details from 1860 remain, such as pre-tin plaster moldings, mahogany stairwells, and etched glass, with newer renovations paying homage to the past. And can we talk about the kitchen? The vintage fridge, stove and radio will transport you to another era, while the tiled mosaic floor deserves a firm place on your Instagram feed. There’s no outdoor space, but the plush sleigh bed looks especially homey.Rating: 4.95Hudson Mechanic’s Loft, $315Foto: This former mechanic’s loft is reimagined as a hip loft sleeping six.sourceAirbnbBook the mechanic’s loft for $315 per weekend night With three bedrooms and an airy loft layout, this is a great option for groups.

There’s also an outdoor courtyard shared with another unit for added fresh air. One review notes, “This loft is chic and stylish.

It could not have been better!”Rating: 4.85Rhinebeck loft, $299Foto: If Don Draper lived in Rhinebeck.sourceAirbnbBook this loft for $299 per weekend night Rhinebeck is another Hudson Valley darling, reachable by train in under two hours. I’m a fan of this luxe loft with its distinctive features, such as the low profile, upholstered king size bed; mid century furniture, and subway-tiled bathroom. There’s also a complimentary mini bar, reading nook, and plenty of space to stretch out. One weekend review raved, “Wonderful and thoughtful hosts! Better than a five star hotel … beautifully decorated, so many special touches, snack and stocked fridge, unbelievably comfortable bed, and so close to town. Would book here again and again!”Rating: 5.0Rhinebeck guest house, $315Foto: With so many windows, this lofted guest house has a greenhouse-like, airy feel.sourceAirbnbBook this guest house for $300 per weekend night Small groups looking to explore Rhinebeck should check out this whimsical guest house.

You can take Amtrak to Rhinebeck or Poughkeepsie and cab over, or take the convenient Adirondack Trailways bus direct from New York City. Much like surroundings, this Airbnb is steeped in 19th-century character – it was built in 1870 for Rondout shipping tycoon, Thomas Cornell, whose mansion stood across the street. Recommends one Airbnb user, “Jamie’s place is spacious and impeccable, like you’ve walked into a designer showroom. It’s in an amazing building and walking distance to downtown.”Rating: 5.0Kingston farm house, $263Foto: Simple, yet super stylish.sourceAirbnbBook the farm house for $263 per weekend night For Hudson Valley appeal coupled with sweeping views, consider this renovated farm house with three bedrooms. Light and bright, it sits on a hill overlooking Kingston and the full Hudson River Valley. Admire one-of-a-kind style choices like periodic table pillows, decorative paddles, and period rugs. Throw a log into the wood-burning stove and savor a slower pace.Rating: 5.0New Paltz, New York: Barn, $179Foto: For something rustic, try this converted barn beloved by Airbnb users.sourceAirbnbBook the barn for $179 per weekend night There’s something especially cozy about a barn, especially in Upstate New York. New Paltz is fast emerging as a Hudson Valley favorite and this former barn easily gives away why. Large globe lanterns hang from open, vaulted ceilings, and simple furnishings are accented by bright pops of yellow. There’s a propane fireplace inside, plus a grill to dine alfresco under the stars.Rating: 4.90New Paltz Tudor, $199Foto: The fireplace, spa-like shower, and warm living room feel particularly inviting.sourceAirbnbBook this Tudor home for $199 per weekend night. The New York Trailways bus zips straight up to New Paltz from the city in 95 minutes, and will drop you off just five minutes from this adorable Tudor. In fact, the attentive host includes everything you need to know about arriving by bus in his listing, likely one of the many reasons his property has earned so many rave reviews. One shares, “This is a very cute apartment right in the village. Very comfortable bed. A brand new and stylish bathroom, but everything else is charming with older appeal. You can park on the street comfortably and then walk to most of where you’d want to go in the village.”Rating: 4.70Beacon apartment, $139Foto: Simple, clean lines highlight a minimal aesthetic.sourceAirbnbBook this top floor apartment for $139 per weekend night Full disclosure: I’m obsessed with Beacon and go every year to hike Mt. Beacon, dine on Main Street, and listen to live jazz at Denning’s Point Distillery (available most Saturdays). So I have a lot of opinions on where you should stay, in addition to what you should do. At the same time, I’m not alone in my adoration of Beacon, and high demand often inflates most rental prices to rival that of a five-star luxury hotel. As such, this Airbnb seems rare with its fair pricing, modest yet tasteful design, and prime location just steps from Main Street. Rating: 5.0Newburgh mid-century home, $150Foto: Mid-century modern meets Scandinavian cool.sourceAirbnbBook the mid-century home for $150 per weekend night When Beacon is overbooked, but you still want to easy access to the art of Dia Beacon, consider staying across the river in Newburgh. From the outside, this Airbnb looks like a trendy gallery, but it’s really a mid-century marvel of an apartment with a private garden. You’ll be walking distance to restaurants and shops in the village, and the ferry to Beacon. One reviewer notes, “Our stay was truly 10/10 in every possible way thanks to Cynthia’s helpful communication and attention to detail, and also her beautiful, spacious apartment! The neighborhood is as quiet as can be if you’re looking for a great night’s sleep. With so much to see, do, and eat all within easy walking and driving distance, I wouldn’t hesitate to book Cynthia’s place again!”Rating: 4.93Garrison studio, $175Foto: Pops of citrus accentuate a neutral palette.sourceAirbnbBook this studio for $175 per weekend night Fancy hotel or Airbnb? It’s hard to tell thanks to a well-curated designer look. This striking studio is part of a larger home, but rest assured it’s totally private with a separate entrance. Though the shared amenities are worth using: two ponds and a garden, fire pit, swings, and an orchard. Better still, it’s close to West Point and Storm King, and only minutes from the Garrison Metro North train station, which is only an hour from New York City.Rating: 4.82The post 13 unique Airbnb escapes in New York’s Hudson Valley, no car required appeared first on Business Insider Nederland.
