For us, cozy is a verb. It's raking the autumn leaves for the kids to jump in. It's hunkering down with a wool blanket and the new Elizabeth Strout novel. It's layering on the flannel and heating up the hot coco. Cozy is most certainly the vibe of fall, but sometimes, between the endless to-do piles and filled-to-the-brim laundry hampers, chasing hygge at home is simply impossible. Instead, we must travel to it. So pack the hiking boots, the pumpkin carving knives and your favorite small-batch coffee, here are the coziest home rentals in every state (including D.C.) to get out of dodge and get your supreme cozy on. Don't forget your slippers and robes.

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Wisconsin River valley on 30 acres of forest and prairie, guests will be equally impressed with this cabin’s surroundings as with the stylish interiors (the house was built in 1976 by a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice). Think: cathedral ceilings, a vintage wood stove and sliding glass doors that open to a 400-square foot deck that’s suspended above the trees and overlooking the pond below. Traveling with the fam? Take advantage of the highchair, baby gate, travel crib and childrens’ books available. Fishing and wildlife viewing nearby.

  • Sleeps: 8 (5 bed, 3 bedrooms; 2 baths)
  • Rate: from $106/night
  • Why We Love It: premier host, family-friendly, fishing, breathtaking views

With Yellowstone National Park, the Thermopolis hot springs, and the ghost town of Kirwin all nearby, you won’t run out of things to do while staying at this rustic riverside home. After a day of exploring, let the sounds of the flowing Greybull river and local wildlife (deer, turkeys, eagles, rabbits) on your doorstep lull you into a deep sleep. But if you’d rather stay on site, idle away the hours trout fishing or just relaxing on the Adirondack chairs next to the fire pit.

While there is only street parking available, a free residential parking permit is provided on request.
