4. Happy Camper
Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Have you ever seen a cuter camper? Set on the property of a 1700s farmhouse, this vintage Airstream is decked out with colorful furniture, quirky artwork, and a tiki-themed patio. Although the owners live on the same property, guests have their own private fire pit and grill to enjoy BBQ and s’mores during the cool New England nights.
This sunny studio is located in what was once a church built by Swedish immigrants in the 1800s. The building is now owned by a couple who once used the space as a stained glass studio, and the studio apartment is adorned with beautiful glass art. The neighborhood feels very private and is only a mile from downtown Brattleboro.

If the eco-friendly loft in Maine is a bit too nontraditional, the Monterey Country House in Massachusetts’ Berkshire County will give you the same warmth of the loft but with more modern features. In addition to the GQ Magazine-featured kitchen, the home boasts a rope swing, vintage board games, and fire pit for your group to enjoy the perfect fall weekend.
