5 amazing ski lodges to trade places with this winter

Londoners, the temperature has well and truly dropped. But you didn’t need us to tell you that – you’re probably wearing at least three layers as you read this. Here at Hostmaker, we’re big believers in doing things in style. Meaning, if you’re going to be cold, why not retreat to the cosy comfort of a beautiful ski cabin to make the most of the climate? We can hear your protests: ‘but Christmas has left a hole in my pocket’ and, ‘we haven’t even been paid yet!’ Skiing holidays may be the priciest of all getaways, but we’ve got news for you – tourists love visiting London homes (like yours) in the winter.As an Airbnb property management service, we’re seeing bookings for city apartments fly in, despite the temperature’s sudden decrease. So if you make your home available now, you could be gliding down distant slopes in no time, with your adventure paid for by your Airbnb income. Think of it as your own version of The Holiday, but with less crying and a bigger financial benefit 😉 And if the prospect of après-ski for free isn’t enough to tempt you, let us draw you in with the warmth of these handsome, homely Airbnb ski lodges. (After all, what is travel if not done with authenticity?)

1. Steamy in Serraval, Rhone-Alpes

This awesome alpine chalet has its own sauna – perfect for melting frozen extremities after a day zig-zagging down the slopes at nearby La Clusaz. There’s also a lake nearby where guests can go boating. Just don’t forget your blanket!

2. Majestic in Montaimont, Rhone-Alpes 

A cathedral-like, double-height space dating back to 1948, this lodge is perfect for lounging with loved ones– there’s an authentic fireplace and the home sleeps 10.

3. Spaced-out in Sunnyside, Tahoe

This wooden wonder spreads out across a half-acre lot, which includes a terrace and a fire pit. We can smell the toasted marshmallows from here. And the nearest ski resorts are just 7 miles away.

4. Toasty in Talloires, Rhone-Alpes

Lake-side and lavish, this grand lodge has piles of chopped wood, perfect for keeping warm, along with a glass of mulled wine and cheese fondue, in the evenings.

5. Palatial in Park City, Utah

With panoramic views and room enough 16, this home is pure luxury. There’s also a rock waterfall and fire pit in the garden – grab a loved one and cuddle up!

Already feeling that warm glow of excitement? Pop your place on Airbnb – or add some extra January and February availability – and make the dream of skiing this winter a reality. To avoid any disappointment, be sure to follow our tips for making your house an appealing home – the cosier for incoming guests the better. Or better yet, have an Airbnb property management service do it for you (hint: that’s us). Happy holidays!
