It's almost August, yes, and you've yet to schedule your woodsy escape from the city. Good news: This sampling of vacation rentals in the mountains still have availabilities—as of this writing—for hike-and-bike enthusiasts longing for a break from NYC.
Wells, New York: This new two-bedroom, two-bath cabin in the southern Adirondacks asking an average of $147/night on Vrbo.com comes with a perk many summer vacationers would appreciate after a hot day out on the trails: central air. The property's on Lake Algonquin, too, so swimming is also a (better) alternative for hot days.
Hunter, New York: For $250/night (on average) via HomeAway.com, this chalet-style three-bedroom, one-bath on two acres will get you near Hunter Mountain's hiking and biking trails; adrenaline junkies will also appreciate the mountain's ziplining course.
Lake George, New York: This modernist three-bedroom, four-bath in the Adirondacks is just seven miles from the Olympic Village, and is asking $220 a night on Airbnb.
Ludlow, Vermont: A one-bedroom, one-bath condo for $163/night on Vrbo.com on Okemo Mountain isn't just a boon in winter; given that the complex comes with tennis courts and a swimming pool, plus the ski trails that are perfect for hiking in the summer, there's plenty for an outdoor enthusiast to be enthusiastic about.
Pocono Summit, Pennsylvania: This four-bedroom house in the Poconos is built for entertaining, with seven beds, three full baths, and two half-baths, plus a massive outdoor deck, a game room (with a billiards table), and a hot tub. It's asking $450/night on Airbnb.
