It’s finally that time of year. The air is decidedly chilly and I, for one, already lit up my first fireplace of the season.
Whether you are looking forward to ski season or in search of an autumn escape, here are some Airbnbs with cozy fireplaces– perfect for the snuggly, baby-it’s-cold-outside weather.
Taos, New Mexico, is a haven for artists, skiers, and home to a unique blend of Native American, Spanish, and Mexican culture. A multifaceted destination, to say the least.
It’s beautiful in the warmer months, but it really shines when the weather turns cold. Many Taos cabins and homes feature kiva-style fireplaces that add a distinctive flare to the room. (Kivas are a style of Pueblo fireplaces popular in adobe architecture.)
Whether you are visiting to shred the slopes or to enjoy the changing fall foliage, these Taos Airbnbs are the perfect place to cozy up in.
West Texas is not a ski destination and it’s quite a trek for Dallasites to commit to. But it’s so worth visiting during the chillier autumn season.
Big Bend National Park, Marfa, Terlingua, and all of the other gems nestled in the vast West Texan desert are more fun to explore when you don’t have to worry about keeling over from heat exhaustion.
And when the day’s exploring is done, who wouldn’t want to curl up by these trendy, cozy fireplaces?
Even for those uninterested in skiing or boarding, the apres-ski culture is reason enough to visit Breckenridge. The old mining town turned ski resort is well known for having a good time.
The annual Ullr festival is scheduled this year for December 9-19. Named after the Viking god of snow, this extravaganza pays honor to the average 300 inches of powder that the town is blessed with each year.
Looking to visit a bit sooner than ski season? The golden aspen trees during fall are an underrated treat. Many Texans flock to Colorado around winter break, but the rainbow of colors that dance across the mountainside as it transitions from summer green to winter white are worth visiting for.
