airbnb oswego ny

When someone mentions New York, you immediately think of an urban jungle with towering buildings and busy streets. It’s often forgotten that New York isn’t just that. It’s a vast state with several cities scattered all throughout. If you head up north, you will find the city of Oswego, which is known as the “Port City of Central New York”. It sits on the banks of Lake Ontario, which makes it an accessible area for trade. Oswego also played an important role during World War II as a refugee camp for Holocaust survivors. The city is home to other museums and historical sites, including Fort Ontario, which is a great place to visit for tourists who want to learn about the city. If you’re planning a trip to this port city, check out our list of the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Oswego, New York.

1. Nice loft with great location (from USD 189)

The preserved brick building, where this accommodation is located, sits on the banks of Lake Ontario, and it doesn’t get any better than that. The views both during the day and night are splendid. To add to that, the apartment is located in the middle of downtown, right next to great restaurants and bars, and walking distance to shops such as groceries, bookshops, and pharmacies. The loft itself has traces of its rustic remnants, but it is also equipped with modern amenities, thus making it a great place to stay.
