There’s nothing like the first smell of fall air to get New Yorkers ready to pack their bags for a quick jaunt upstate. Between the changing foliage, outdoors antique markets, and the array of freshly picked apples and wine trails at your disposal, heading north of the city for a weekend can make for the perfect (and seemingly hassle-free) getaway.
But, since we may not all have country homes at our disposal — or friends with country homes at their disposal, for that matter — Airbnb has stepped in to fill that Upstate New York-shaped void in our lives. Now, it's easier than ever to feel like we're jetting off to our own autumnal paradise (even if it is just for a few nights). An added bonus? Besides being majorly affordable, these gorgeous hideaways are all super-close to your transport du choix. So, what are you waiting for? That Amtrak ticket is calling your name.
