Hudson Valley Airbnbs

Summary List Placement

  • As the pandemic continues, many New Yorkers are seeking a nearby getaway to enjoy the outdoors.
  • We found cozy cabins, cottages, and barns in places like Beacon, Hudson, Rhinebeck, and more.
  • All are highly-rated listings and range in price from $99 to $450 per night.

While there’s hope in sight for an end to the pandemic thanks to the vaccine roll outs, COVID-19 continues to spread across the US. Many city dwellers are continuing to seek getaways to connect with nature and savor fresh air while still practicing social distancing. 

New York’s Hudson Valley draws visitors from all over the Northeast and is also especially popular with New York urbanites looking for a close-to-home city break. While it’s ideal in every season, the Hudson Valley is an especially cozy winter weather trip thanks to an abundance of cabins, breweries, and outdoor activities from hiking to skiing.

Hudson Valley towns like Beacon, Rhinebeck, Hudson, and others are all teeming with scenic Airbnbs, and many New York City train lines reach them in around two hours or less. Though, renting a car for better social distancing is always an option, too. 

Medical experts and the CDC also recommend staying in private vacation homes, such as those on Airbnb, over hotels since you can book an entire home and be protected from interactions with others. It also helps to know that Airbnb put stringent new policies in place that all hosts must now follow, in accordance with their Enhanced Cleaning Protocol

Of course, right now, there is still no firm guarantee with regard to safety. It’s crucial to follow guidelines and advice from organizations such as the CDC and WHO, and practice safety measures including wearing a mask, washing your hands, and maintaining social distancing.

With those precautions in mind, these Hudson Valley Airbnbs all make it easy to practice social distancing on a remote getaway. 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. 

We set the following parameters to identify truly unique Airbnbs in the Hudson Valley:

  1. Airbnb listing is for the entire home (guaranteed social distancing and no awkward kitchen conversations).
  2. All are highly-rated Airbnb listings in New York’s Hudson Valley, with a review score of 4.7 or higher.
  3. Prices range from $99 to $450 per night to start, as of publishing.
  4. The decor is unique, incorporating design-forward furniture, interesting historical elements, and attention to detail. These are not simply crash pads.
  5. Properties feel remote, cozy, and warm for the ultimate mountain getaway.

Here are the best Hudson Valley Airbnbs, sorted by price from low to high.

Goat farm yurt in Pattersonville, $99

Book this goat farm yurt starting at $99 per night

It doesn’t get much more unique than a glamping yurt where you can enjoy the company of goats. This tranquil getaway is located in the woods on a small, off-the-grid goat farm. So if you’re seeking an unplugged vacation, this is your spot.

The yurt is heated in the colder months by a wood stove and kerosene heater. Inside you’ll find a bed surrounded by a net, bamboo walls, a tiny wash basin, and a small pantry complete with an electric kettle. However, there is no full kitchen and the bathroom is an outhouse located right nearby the yurt.

Guests can spend their days strolling through the woods and gardens, exploring the farm, or eating breakfast with the goats.
