A Screened-In Cabin by a Pond
Ashfield, Massachusetts
Price: $250 per night
Accommodates: 2 guests
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 1

For those hoping to gaze at the stars and trees without risking an EEE-carrying mosquito bite in their sleep, this screen-enclosed glamping lodge is a lovely option. Only available from mid-April until the start of November, this is the ideal time of year to snatch it up for a few days. There’s no electricity (meditation, nature walks, and good books encouraged), but there is a cute dog named Charlie.

An Enchanting Treehouse in the Vermont Forest
Hardwick, Vermont
Price: $125 per night
Accommodates: 2 guests
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 1.5

Though petite, this woodland studio is packed to the gills with charm. There’s a hammock for ground-level lounging, a deck for elevated views, and at night, you can climb a ladder to snuggle into a sleeping loft tucked just below the roof. With trees all around (welcome to the woods), enjoying the foliage by foot is a cinch, or you can grab the pair of kayaks available for borrowing and take to the close-by stream.

A Homemade Hut in a Tiny House Village
Tremont, Maine
Price: $70 per night
Accommodates: 2 guests
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 1.5

Made from bent maples, this rustic den is in the midst of what one review described as a “moss fairy forest.” The magical implication may be in part thanks to the “fantasy art installations” that the owners have scattered along nearby trails. Guests in the collection of tiny houses also have access to the fresh herbs and eggs from the owners’ farm, and can say hello to the resident animals, which include an emu and a miniature horse. Tip: The bed is twin-sized, so if you’re not going solo, make sure you like your travel partner.

A Timber-Framed Tiny Home
Putney, Vermont
Price: Starting at $125 per night
Accommodates: 4 guests
Bedrooms: 2
Baths: 1

What this abode lacks in square footage, it makes up for in style and smart design. A sliding barn door encloses the full bathroom, and two sleeping nooks house a queen and king bed. A one-wall kitchen with a white subway tile backsplash leaves plenty of space for a living room, which looks through several huge windows out at the nine acres of nature.

A Berkshire County Cottage by a Trustees Trail
Williamstown, Massachusetts
Price: Starting at $69 per night
Accommodates: 3 guests
Bedrooms: Studio
Baths: 1

For maximum foliage exposure, check out two states in one go. The Western Mass. stay sits at the foot of a suspended footbridge, which offers passage over a rolling brook. Cross, and make your way onto Mountain Meadow, a Trustees preservation site that passes over the Massachusetts border into the southwestern corner of Vermont.

A Scandinavian-Inspired Chalet with a Sauna

Price: $115 per night
Accommodates: 2 guests
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 0.5

Twinkle-lit by night and surrounded by autumnal foliage by day, this quaint dwelling is situated amongst the greenery of the Green Mountains. Though nature-lovers will appreciate the location most of all, the barrel-like sauna is an exceptional way to warm up at the end of a crisp hike.

A Yoga-Lover’s Haven in Connecticut
Redding, Connecticut

Accommodates: 4 guests
