We’ve covered beer-inspired getaways and wine-fueled retreats, but we decided it was time to throw Airbnb into the boozy vacation mix. From historic wineries to quirky distilleries, here are seven places to get a buzz on and rest your head.
With pages and pages of glowing five-star reviews, The Stone Cottage is number one on our list for a reason. The cottage is tucked away in the orchards at Bluemont Vineyard in Virginia, and in a past life was a home for horses. Now, it’s fully equipped to give human guests a romantic getaway in the countryside. Bonus: during the farming season, you can pick your own apples and peaches in the surrounding orchards.
For the ultimate getaway, go to one of the countries that love wine the most – Italy. This Bnb is housed in a home that dates back to 1860, located in the stunning Sicilian countryside. Take a dip in the pool, or head to the beach, which is just a short drive away. Wander in the orchards and enjoy fresh citrus and figs, and spend the evenings sipping red wine and carb-loading.

This “Farmhouse Suite” is housed in a charming farmhouse that’s home to the Olde York Farm Distillery. Your stay includes a tour and tasting, with an in-room mini-fridge stocked with farm-made spirits, like vodka, whiskey, bourbon and brandy. Past guests describe the place as an “upstate NY classic” and highly recommend the distillery tour.
Napa who? With several wineries nearby, this getaway is geared toward adults – perfect for a celebratory getaway. Reviewers rave about the welcoming, comforting experience – “a dream house in a real winery.” Located in Healdsburg, CA, the winery features several estate grown wines, including a Petite Syrah and a Sauvignon Blanc.
This historic home was formerly known as the Illinois Brewery in the early 1800s, and though it’s completely renovated and updated, it retains all of its authentic charm. The listing encourages guests to check out the fermenting cellar, which served as a storehouse for beer and a tavern for locals. The owners of this Bnb run the Galena Brewery downtown, and invite visitors to come down for a complimentary beer.
Get a good night’s sleep in this Nottingham, PA gem, which features an apartment above the vineyard’s tasting room. Complete with sprawling rural views and the vineyard dog, Eva, your stay comes with an evening wine tasting. Reviews praise the apartment’s beautiful furnishings, excellent amenities and breathtaking views.
