- Wineries are re-opening to the public, and they can be great destinations for a gourmet getaway.
- We’ve paired wine regions from coast to coast with local Airbnb options.
- From standard homes to yurts, we found Airbnbs near wineries ranging from $120 to $456 per night.
Anyone who’s ever visited a winery knows that it’s all-too-tempting to linger in those beautiful settings. So, why not stay? Find yourself a cozy base camp and spend a few days exploring the vineyards and tasting the local wines. Though many wineries initially switched to virtual tastings due to the pandemic, tasting rooms have reopened their doors with new precautions in place (more on that here).
There are currently 252 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) spread across the country, with 141 in California alone. So, there’s a good chance you live within an easy road trip of a grape-growing region. Though I’m no sommelier, I’ve been to enough tastings to know that staying right nearby is a serious perk.
Because these wine-producing areas have become such popular destinations, the crop of vacation rentals is growing as quickly as the vines. From charming cottages to mod guest houses with pools, converted barns to rustic log cabins, wine country Airbnbs offer plenty of personality.

Napa Valley cottage in downtown Calistoga
This storybook cottage is one of a cluster of 16 similar cottages scattered throughout an elm forest right in the heart of Calistoga. The cottages are collectively known as the Cottage Grove Inn, and they’re located within easy strolling distance of the town’s tasting rooms, shops, and restaurants.
The cottage is a relaxing and romantic place, with soft furnishings in white and rosy hues, reclaimed hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a wood-burning fireplace (wood provided). The King bed has down bedding, and the spa-like bathroom offers robes, a two-person soaking tub, and shower. A customized armoire hides a kitchen nook with a small fridge and coffee and tea.
Yoga mats, picnic basket backpacks, and cruiser bikes are available for some outdoor fun, and there’s also a Tesla charging station on the premises.
Although the cottage is configured as a studio for double occupancy, the hosts can add an extra single bed if you give them advance notice. Dogs under 40 pounds are welcome too (for an extra $50 per pet, per night), but be aware children younger than 12 are prohibited.
Vineyard cabin in Paso Robles
Located on the Hoyt Family Vineyard, just nine minutes west of Paso Robles, this funky little cabin is peaceful and private, yet it’s within an easy 20-minute drive to several area vineyards.
Local design firm Daniels Wood Land was responsible for the cabin’s unconventional interior design, using repurposed wine barrels, fallen trees, and old industrial parts to create many of the home’s furnishings in a style the hosts describe as “cool, rustic chic.”
Kids are welcome here, and one bedroom has bunk beds, while the other has a Queen bed. There’s a kitchen with a stove, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker, and the cabin is equipped with air conditioning and Wi-Fi.
It’s a free-spirited sort of place to relax. Outside there’s a spacious outdoor deck, plus a BBQ grill and picnic table, lounge seating, and a campfire area (s’more kit included). Guests have access to a hot tub on the adjoining property (there’s another Airbnb on the premises, and it’s possible to rent both for larger groups), and there’s even a tree swing at the top of the hill.
Vineyard guesthouse in St. Helena
This recently renovated guesthouse is located on a private vineyard in the mountains 10 minutes from St. Helena. Plenty of neighboring vineyards are also within easy reach.
Open, airy, and elegant — with lofty, 20-foot ceilings and gorgeous views from wrap-around windows — the home’s modern design is white and bright, with flashes of sunny yellow and deep coral mixed with warm wood tones. The studio configuration includes a sleek white kitchenette, a rustic antique wooden dining table, a lounge area with a cushion-strewn built-in window bench and a Queen sleeper sofa, a fireplace, plus a white-curtained canopy bed. The bathroom is stocked with robes and offers an oversized walk-in shower.
It’s easy to wander between indoor and outdoor spaces. Two sets of French doors open onto a private terrace with panoramic vistas and a contemporary seating and dining area.
Modern barn on vineyard near Healdsburg
This sophisticated barn resides in the heart of a nine-acre working Zinfandel vineyard, overlooking Sonoma County’s beautiful Dry Creek Valley. Although it’s only five minutes away from Healdsburg — with its excellent restaurants, shops, galleries, and farmer’s market — the setting is private and peaceful.
Well-suited for two couples, it offers two luxurious Restoration Hardware California King bed suites (each with a full bath) separated by a shared great room with lounge seating, a dining table, and a well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances. The decor is eclectic-cool, including a rustic wooden dining set, leather club chairs, modern white sofa, groovy handmade concrete tile flooring, rugs gathered from the hosts’ world travels, and striking original art throughout. A Haiku bamboo fan swirls above the main space to keep it cool.
It’s a place for easy indoor-outdoor living, with a fragrant lavender field just outside the living room’s French doors and a 45-foot covered porch that overlooks the vineyard and the Dry Creek Valley. A Weber gas grill is available, and there’s an outdoor seating and dining area. The hosts point out that the property isn’t suited to children younger than 8.
Mountain guesthouse with pool in Napa
This tranquil guesthouse with vineyard views is hidden in the mountains only a few minutes up a country road from Napa. It’s a quiet and secluded setting for a peaceful and private stay, while still being right near incredible wineries.
The interior is light and open, with vaulted ceilings and minimalist-mod decor in white and wood tones. Fold-down beds are concealed behind panels resembling Shoji screens. One Queen bed and two Twin beds can share the main space, but the versatile home can also be configured with fewer beds to make room for a seating area, depending on your needs. The gorgeous, full kitchen has a white marble island with a breakfast bar, a fire-engine-red Smeg refrigerator, and the hexagonal-tiled bathroom features a walk-in shower.
Outside, there’s an elegant lap pool, hot tub, and seating area for watching the sunset with a glass of wine. Walk up the road beyond the house to meet the local cows, alpacas, and sheep, and you’ll be rewarded with views all the way to San Francisco. This property has been used as a writer’s retreat, and it’s easy to see how someone could be inspired by this exquisite setting.
Airstream with private hot tub beside tasting room in Wapato
Play it cool in this cool Airstream, parked in a private spot beside the Freehand Cellars tasting room in the Yakima Valley. Located just a few minutes away from downtown Yakima, the trailer comes with its own hot tub and gas firepit and it’s surrounded by eight acres of orchards, roses, and vineyards.
The living space is streamlined and contemporary, with sleek metal surfaces, pale wood tones, and plenty of natural light. There’s a handy kitchenette and cushioned dining nook, a cozy queen bed, and a bathroom with shower, decorated with a jaunty sign reading, “Wine me up and watch me go!” The trailer also has all the necessary modern comforts, including Wi-Fi, TV, and air conditioning.
Level-2 electric vehicle chargers are also available free on-site. And it’s no surprise that this Airstream is popular—there’s limited availability in spring, but more openings into summer and fall.
Vineyard cottage near Walla Walla
Nestled amidst rolling fields of wheat and grapes on a family vineyard a few miles north of Walla Walla, this dreamy cottage offers quiet relaxation in a country setting.

Inside, the spaces have a refreshed antique charm, with hardwood floors and an open-plan living room warmed by a fireplace and furnished with leather sofas. The full kitchen and adjacent dining area feature a square wooden farmhouse table surrounded by white Windsor chairs.

The bright and airy main space includes a living area with a 40-inch TV, a dining area with seating for six, and a full kitchen with a range and dishwasher. There’s even framed artwork adorning the walls. A private bedroom is furnished with a Queen-sized brass bed, dresser, and armoire, and the bathroom is equipped with a walk-in shower.

Willamette Valley cabin with vineyard views
This recycled cedar cabin is perched at the edge of a forest overlooking 40 acres of vines on the Beacon Hill Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton wine country. The vineyard produces pinot noir, chardonnay, and Riesling, and they have a tasting room on-site. Plus, the cabin is located within a few minutes’ drive of several other wineries.
Built in the shape of a tower, the cabin offers panoramic views from the tree house-like upstairs bedroom. And while the wood-paneled space is compact, it’s practical and comfortable: There’s a wood-burning fireplace beside the living area’s two leather armchairs, electric heaters in each room, and air conditioning too. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, and electric burners, and the bathroom is equipped with a shower.
The spacious outdoor deck is just right for sipping wine and keeping an eye on the vineyard. (The hosts even provide a bottle of their estate-grown pinot noir.) There’s also a picnic area with a BBQ grill and a firepit in the woods.
Visitors remark on how gorgeous and peaceful it is to stay on the vineyard, although the host says to expect some farming activity between July and October. Guests can receive a 10% discount on designated local wine tours, too. Ask the host for details.
Log cabin near Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill Country
An authentic log cabin, built in the 1800s, this remarkable rental is located just five miles from downtown Fredericksburg and within easy reach of numerous tasting rooms.
One of three antique cabins on over seven acres (all three can be rented together, for a total of 18 guests), this two-person home is called Peach Cabin. And though it may be old, it’s certainly not musty or dusty. The interior is clean and fresh, with a soaring ceiling, stone fireplace, comfortable furniture, and a small kitchenette and dining area. The loft bedroom features a Queen-sized bed. But the star of the whole show may just be the bathroom’s fabulous antique copper soaking tub.
If that’s not enough, there’s a private hot tub on the back porch, and the cabin also comes with a picnic table, hammock, and charcoal grill. Don’t be surprised if you wake up to find deer grazing in the yard.

Two new cruiser bikes are available to rent for an additional $10 per day, and the hosts can also set you up with a local horse-and-carriage service so you can visit the valley wineries in style. You can walk to three different vineyards and bike to many others in less than 15 minutes.

Are wineries safe to visit?
Wineries are in the process of re-opening, and many have put new safety protocols in place. Check with each winery for the latest details as you plan your visit. Many wineries are operating with reduced capacity, limited indoor seating, mask requirements (when not tasting wine), and enhanced cleaning measures. Some wineries are also requiring reservations and restricting the number of guests who can visit, so consult their websites and make reservations in advance if you can.
State and local COVID-19 restrictions will also impact how each winery is able to operate. Napa Valley, for example, is advising visitors to wear masks and practice social distancing. In general, expect limited interaction between customers and servers at tasting rooms, contactless ordering and payment, and even temperature checks before entering some wineries.
What’s the best time to visit a winery?
Keep in mind that vineyards are working farms, so they’ll be busy places during peak grape harvest season (roughly July to October, depending on the region). A winery (where wine is produced) may be separate from the actual vineyard, and a tasting room might also be separate from the growing operation.
Many are open year-round, but check with the winery for specifics on their schedule, including any vineyard tours and wine-tasting programs they may offer. If you’re hoping to have a chance to chat with a winemaker, you might want to choose a quieter time of year.
Keep in mind that finding available accommodation in high-demand areas during the peak summer and fall seasons can be a challenge, so book early to avoid disappointment.
What are the best wine regions in the US?
There are currently 252 established AVAs across the country, reflecting a wide range of growing conditions and geographic features in states you might expect (California, Washington, Oregon, New York), and those which might surprise you (Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, Wisconsin). In fact, the oldest AVA is actually in Missouri (the Augusta AVA, established in 1980, just a few months before Napa Valley). There’s a wine region for every taste, and that’s what makes them so much fun to explore on your way to finding your own personal favorite.
Oregon‘s 19 AVAs grow nearly 100 grape varieties. The Willamette Valley’s Eola-Amity Hills AVA is known for its pinot noir and chardonnay; and the Yamhill-Carlton AVA specializes in pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot gris.
California has a whopping 141 AVAs, with over 100 varieties of grapes growing throughout the state. In Napa Valley, the Calistoga AVA is known for producing cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, petite sirah, charbono, and syrah. The Mount Veeder AVA specializes in cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, malbec, merlot, and syrah; and the St. Helena AVA is recognized for cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, syrah, zinfandel, and sauvignon blanc. You’ll find plenty of zinfandel and sauvignon blanc in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley AVA; and the Paso Robles AVA has built a reputation for cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel, syrah, and chardonnay.
New York’s wine producers are classified within 11 AVAs. The Hudson River Region AVA specializes in pinot noir, cabernet franc, Riesling, and merlot. Seneca Lake AVA, in the Finger Lakes region, is recognized for its Riesling, cabernet franc, chardonnay, pinot noir, and Gewurztraminer. Long Island‘s North Fork AVA is especially known for its cabernet franc, merlot, and chardonnay.
Are Airbnbs safe?
As summer approaches and vaccines roll out, we’re all eager to travel again. The CDC recently announced that fully vaccinated people can safely travel in the US.
Experts also consider private vacation homes like Airbnbs, one of the safer choices, especially when compared to hotels. This is because you are often booking an entire home protected from interaction with others.
Airbnb also announced rigorous new procedures including the Enhanced Cleaning Protocol, which includes guidelines on personal protective equipment, disinfectants, and mandatory waiting periods between previous guests and cleanings.
However, there are still serious risks to traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s important to follow advice from leading health organizations such as the CDC and the WHO. Look into the latest local and state guidelines before planning your vacation, and take precautions including wearing a mask, washing your hands frequently, and maintaining social distancing.
