Berkshires Schoolhouse | Williamstown, Massachusetts
This is a renovated schoolhouse, built originally in 1842, and if we don’t have you fully convinced you need to travel to Williamstown, Massachusetts, allow us to throw in the fact that this particular Airbnb has mountain views. A hammock, chairs to enjoy coffee anywhere on the grounds, and bright pink peonies that bloom every springtime are just a few of the amenities that make us think we would probably never leave this place. Berkshires Schoolhouse is ideal for up to four guests as it has two bedrooms, three beds, and one bathroom. If this sounds like an ideal place to rest your head at night, you can book your stay here!
Woodstock Historic Artist Estate, The Pond House | Woodstock, New York
This is one of those times that we’ll actually let the Airbnb listing sell itself, but we will say that this place is truly one of a kind! From the listing: “Awaken to an idyllic view of trees through timber-framed picture windows. Acclaimed social realist painter Reginald Marsh’s family estate is known to be unique for Woodstock with its ball-shaped junipers, a pond that brackets the house, expansive lawns, a gathering of birches and 100-year-old cone-shaped cedar trees. Today the former artist studio of the estate is an architect-renovated gem most recently featured at Icon Design Magazine Italy. The setting with a private waterfall bordering public preserves, as well as the attention to architectural detail is unique.” This space is ideal for up to five guests, as it has three bedrooms, three beds, and one and a half baths.
