Winter travel isn't just for visiting your family or escaping to warmer climes. With temperatures quickly plunging, you might be preparing instead to hibernate from the cold in a cocoon of warm blankets and fuzzy socks, sipping hot chocolate, and snoozing away lazy weekend afternoons. And while you might be dreaming of sunnier days, winter is bringing good cheer to the dreary skies with a number of things you can't do any other time of year.
Instead of burrowing under your covers, embrace the cold, immerse yourself in the season, and explore a new side of the United States most travelers only get to see in the summertime.
From mountain top cottages to lakeside cabins and chic city dwellings, we've found 16 Airbnbs around the country that even the biggest snow scrooge will love. Each home is in close proximity to a variety of cold weather activities, including skiing, snowshoeing, and holiday shopping. But most importantly, they're all super cozy and comfortable so you don't need to forego snuggling.
Check out our selection of Airbnbs to combat the winter blues and give you a whole new appreciation for the winter season.
