Fall is almost here, and we’re in need of a weekend getaway. Luckily, one of the best things about living in Greenville is that the mountains are not that far away + they’re always calling.

Naturally, we’ve compiled a list of the coziest Airbnbs for you and your favorite people to enjoy this fall. Whether you’re watching the leaves fall, sitting near the campfire, or enjoying a cup of coffee in bed, these Airbnbs are here for your every need + are the perfect way to social distance. We hope you love them just as much as we do. 

*A few things to note: These getaways are gettin’ gone quick. (Some sold out for the fall while we were compiling this list.) Also, prices may vary depending on dates selected and extra taxes + booking and cleaning fees may be tacked on at the end. (Sorry, Airbnb makes the rules, and we just follow them.)
