This Valentine’s Day, lovebirds choose to rent locally


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to spend time with your loved one than on a romantic date that doesn’t involve connecting to an E-train, TSA, or canceled flights?

New Yorkers received the memo, according to Airbnb research. They found that more people than ever were opting for second homes and short-term rentals close to home.

Haven Thorn, a spokesman for Airbnb, said: “We’ve seen a huge increase in the number of people staying within 200 miles or less – which is basically a tank of gas – and locals are rediscovering all the novelties and novelties within their radius. Romantic things.” There are also curated romantic experiences, such as couples photoshoots at Minnewska State Park (above).

To help you get a house near your decidedly unromantic studio apartment on the hottest winter day of the year, we’ve rounded up some of the cutest love nests on the market right now.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home (above) has huge floor-to-ceiling windows that look out into the secluded pine forest.

What better Valentine’s Day holiday than with a hot tub set in an all-glass room overlooking the lake?

Zen Xcape is a private resort in northern New Jersey that bills itself as having “the rustic charm of a contemporary American lake lodge, the simple elegance of an Asian-inspired spa, and the chic style of a New York City loft.”

The three-bedroom home features panoramic water views, a five-burner stove, and a sunroom with a hot tub. The house is situated on the hills of Vavayanda with stunning views.

This lakeside love nest costs an average of $299 a night.

Connecticut Water Forest Resort

Love is like water, endless.

If indulging in nature, the Water Forest Retreat (right) in Norwich, Connecticut, is a great option. Cozy and cosy in the “Octagon”, an adult yurt with nothing but a bed and a cozy electric fireplace.

Who needs a TV or Wi-Fi when you can gaze into each other’s eyes and a driftwood chandelier with “fairy” lights, seashells and crystals on the ceiling? The only problem is that the bathroom is in the form of an outhouse. So, if nature calls, get ready to meet the cold darkness of the unknown wilderness. The opportunity to get your partner’s undivided attention costs $120 per night.

Goofy tree house, Connecticut

Relive the fantasies of adolescence in this coming-of-age treehouse at Bluebird Farms in Wellington, Connecticut.

This 40-acre farm and animal sanctuary is set on two floors above ground and tickled by maple and oak trees, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom treehouse will win you over with its rustic-chic charm. Sit comfortably on a fire pit or memory foam mattress.

Cooking may be impossible, the kitchenette is small and there is not much leg room, but it is possible to enjoy the expansive grounds including the gazebo, country store and farm animals. Be aware that no matter how much body heat you and your loved one summon, it may not cover the winter cold. Owners warn that water pipes are prone to freezing and that heat cannot be guaranteed.

Treehouses start at $129 per night.

Absence makes the heart more lovely

If escaping New York — and the tri-state area — is the number one priority, but international flights let you down, here are two domestic options on another sexy side of the country.
