6 Atlanta Airbnbs with enticing hot tubs for cold-weather staycations


Earlier this year, Atlanta was named one of the best cities for a staycation.

If you agree, and if you’re planning on taking time off in the city where you live soon, you’ll need some options. Particularly, homes that are suitable for staying warm and cozy over these next few cold-weather months — and that means homes that are outfitted with hot tubs.

Here are some prime-for-the-winter, ITP spots that don’t require a plane ticket, road trip or train ride.   

Cabbagetown

You’ll probably spend most of your time at the “Cabbagehouse” in the hot tub, which comes complete with color-changing lights and an built-in sound system. For the rare times when you’re inside, stay warm sitting by the fireplace, playing the baby grand piano or climbing the spiral staircase that leads to an intimate, plant-filled loft area.

Midtown

A hot tub and a propane grill are gems in the backyard of this 100-year-old bungalow. That’s probably enough said, but just know there’s also a shared fireplace that connects a meditation room to the living room. Plus, a loft that the listing says “washes warm sunlight into the space through its large skylight.”

East Atlanta

The hot tub is positioned near a firepit and seating area, so you can jump in and out without ever being too far from a heat source. Indoors, a wood burning stove, pool table and dartboard awaits. Oh, and the hosts provide hot chocolate, coffee and tea. There’s no getting chilly here. 

Note: The unit is a private bedroom in the lower level of a house, but the other bedroom can be rented in tandem to have the entire space to yourself. If you have a bigger group, there’s also a snug remodeled RV for rent on the same property.

Ormewood Park

A big appeal of Airbnb is the homey quality that comes with rentals, but this cottage also has resort-like elements. In addition to the attractive hot tub, guests have access to “hotel-quality robes,” pool towels and yoga mats.

Midtown 

Blocks from Piedmont Park, this 1920s craftsman home has a picturesque backyard for the wintertime. It boasts a grill, fire pit, hot tub and lights strung above it all. And hey, that gas fireplace in the living room? It doesn’t hurt either. 

Note: Guests can rent the studio cottage out back to accommodate two additional guests.

East Point

This tiny house, which the hosts say has been featured on HGTV network, has outdoor amenities that include a fire pit, barbecue grills, a hot tub and an outdoor shower. Other features of the 400-square-foot house — sitauted on a 2½-acre property — include a kitchen with a 300-year-old reclaimed pine island and a living room with a rocking chair and 40-inch television. Don’t forget your footed pajamas.
