These Are the Most Popular Airbnbs in Each New England State

Treehouses and castles and farms, oh my!


Looking to get out of town, but don’t want to opt for the same old same old? These quirky rentals are some of Airbnb browsers’ favorites. According to Airbnb’s statistics, these are the New England homes that are most frequently found in people’s “wishlists,” a site feature that lets users save alluring listings for later. Surprisingly, these properties are largely located in lesser-known corners of the region. In some cases, they’re near notable cities, while others enjoy off-grid privacy. From an inviting mountainside dwelling, to a stone castle, to a house in the trees, these eclectic habitats all offer something unique, and the chance to discover a new part of your state.
