For wine lovers who appreciate solid innovative design, it doesn’t get any better than waking up to vineyard views in one of the many wine regions in the US. It’s not just postcard-perfect views from one room in the house: These properties offer vineyard views from bed, a soaking tub, or via walls of windows—as well as from outside the property. Sip that first cup of coffee overlooking the vines, and come sunset enjoy dinner curated from local wines (maybe even born out of grapes harvested on the property) and culinary ingredients—all while taking in the vistas only a vineyard can provide.
In the US, harvesting of wine grapes extends until early November, and autumn is the perfect time to immerse yourself in the vines. Here are 12 winery Airbnb rentals nestled in vineyards. From California to New York—and lesser-known regions like Colorado and Texas—the list isn’t solely limited to European-style sprawling estates. They include a Scandi-style cottage, a converted historic railcar, and a modern farmhouse. There are even luxury amenities like an outdoor pool, a movie theater (to watch the film Bottle Shock, perhaps?), and a boccie-ball court.
With five bedrooms and seven baths in the 9,000-square-foot custom home—plus an outdoor pool, open layout, wrap-around deck, and a chef-grade kitchen—you can bring your friends and host a major harvest party in one of America’s lesser-known wine regions: the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. With a three-acre vineyard on the property’s 80 acres, plus views of Grand Traverse Bay, you may never want to leave this blissful spot—except to visit local tasting rooms, of course.
This recently renovated four-bedroom modern farmhouse is packed with a mix of luxuries (like a built-in BBQ and speaker system—not to mention an outdoor pool and hot tub) and vacay essentials (such as board games and pool floats). Also included is a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house so a group can further spread out in comfort. It’s located on a seven-acre estate, which means there’s plenty of privacy. There are many areas from within the home—as well as the pool—where vineyards are in view.
Set on a nine-acre vineyard, this two-bedroom, two-bath modern barn dials back the exterior design to evoke a bygone era. It’s owned by an architect and photographer couple, and it’s perfect for two couples traveling together. There are two primary suites and the design features include Restoration Hardware bed frames. The home also features original art and the pièce de résistance: a 45-foot covered porch overlooking Dry Creek Valley vineyards.
Inside this adorable stone cottage on the grounds of Bluemont Vineyard (and built from stone on the property) is a one-bedroom, one-bath accommodation. It’s a former loafing shed that was once home to the property’s horses and is now updated to accommodate overnight guests. A custom stone shower and open floor plan await inside, while the outside features a porch with swivel rockers to take in the sunset.
Tucked into a restored 1912 railcar now stocked with modern luxuries (such as a washer and dryer and a 50-inch TV), this is a new one-bedroom accommodation at Warner Vineyards, which has been making wine since 1938. That makes it Michigan’s second-oldest winery. During business hours at the tasting room, walk over for a drink—perhaps the winery’s sparkling Riesling, Chardonnay Reserve, or Cabernet Franc—and relax along the Paw Paw River.
Book this modern one-bedroom farmhouse-style cottage that includes access to a private 40-foot boccie-ball court and you’ll get lots of bonus hygge (after all, the owners call it Hygge Haus). Views of a neighboring biodynamic vineyard are best seen from the redwood deck’s set of Adirondack chairs and picnic table. The interiors are minimalist-minded in their design, with natural light, lots of texture, and various neutral shades.
Because this one-bedroom, one-bath 800-square-foot loft is on the loft level of a charming barn and boasts a deck, the views of Gracianna Winery’s Pinot Noir vineyards in this Sonoma County hotspot can’t be beat. And if it’s a late-night or early-morning harvest, you may even fall asleep to the sound grapes coming off the vine. A tasting room pouring the winery’s wines—Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel—is also on property. For a chill vibe, walk approximately one minute to the banks of the Russian River.
No, that fortress-like castle isn’t in Tuscany, it’s actually in a state that’s better known for its cheese than its wine. With four bedrooms and two and a half baths, there’s also a wine cellar (with retired Maker’s Mark whiskey barrels), a movie theater, a piano room in which to entertain, a dining table crafted from a 1914 John Deere plow, and a chandelier that was once a hay trolley. Located on a 20-acre parcel that includes a working vineyard, this is a new rental as of 2022.
A balcony overlooking vineyards (there are six wineries within three miles) is a huge perk of this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath winery Airbnb. Vines are also literally outside the door and adjacent to an outdoor seating area. Walls of windows frame the wine-country lifestyle, and there are wine accents throughout, like a wine barrel turned into a sink in one of the baths.
