13. Minimalist black home in the woods, Cape Neddick

Nestled in the deep woods, this Airbnb in coastal Maine has recently gotten a well-deserved facelift with all the modern trimmings to make your stay comfortable. When you enter the living room, a smile will surely cross your face when you see the bright and vibrant space. Comfort was obviously the priority when decorating this home, so sink into that plush sofa and just relax.

The master bedroom is large and minimalistic, but some simple additions, like the carpet and wall decorations, help make the room pop. Lie back on the bed and rest your tired head on the pillows - you’re sure to have a complete night’s sleep. The other bedroom looks more simple, but the view outside the window more than makes up for it. Also, the bed is as comfortable as the one in the master bedroom, so you shouldn’t face any problems falling asleep here.

You even have access to the patio in the private backyard! Fire up the grill and have a barbeque for dinner, or just relax on the lounge chairs and watch the day pass by.

14. Double yurt, New Gloucester (from USD 150)

Yurts offer a unique living experience, but what is better than one yurt? Two yurts of course! These are the “Peace” and “Quiet” yurts, with “Peace” being the sleeping quarters while “Quiet” is the kitchen area.

The spacious sleeping quarters come with a wood-burning stove so you can keep the entire yurt warm during the winter. There are four beds for up to eight guests, and the kitchen-cum-dining area is large and extremely modern, which seems a little shocking since it’s in a yurt. It’s well appointed with all the appliances and cookware you’ll need to cook with ease. Located just a few steps away from both yurts is the outdoor shower and toilet area, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to get clean.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the sunrise and sunset from the large open porch at one of the best Maine Airbnbs! Also, you’ll have an unparalleled view of the Beech and Western Mountains.

When you first enter the kitchen, it looks very much like a cabin. However, despite looking very old-fashioned, it is well equipped with modern appliances so you can cook. From the comfortable living room, you’ll have an amazing view of Long Pond. It even comes with an indoor fireplace to keep the space warm when you feel too cold.

The quaint and well-decorated bedroom comes with storage and a comfortable queen-sized bed so you can sleep tight. The additional bedroom is simply decorated and comes with two additional single beds. There’s a hammock out back that overlooks the dock and a swimming cove. So how about a quick lie-in before enjoying a swim in the cool waters?

19. Contemporary and quirky home, South Portland (from 189 USD)

Well lit and beautifully decorated, this unique Airbnb on the East Coast comes with a mesh of modern and rustic decor, making the space feel quirky yet welcoming. Budding cooks will surely be impressed by the contemporary and well-appointed kitchen, so feel free to make use of it and come up with a delicious meal. The dining area features some rustic pieces, and the dining set comes with mismatched dining chairs, so the space feels unique and comfortable.

When you first enter the master bedroom, you’ll feel extremely welcomed as it’s roomy and well decorated. The bed is fairly large and plush so you won’t have any problems falling asleep in it. The second bedroom is slightly smaller than the first one, but it’s still equally as comfortable. Fall asleep on the full-sized futon with ease. Even better, there’s a TV right across from the futon, so you can watch some programmes before or after you wake up.

20. Gorgeous apartment with waterfront view, West Bath

Providing a gorgeous view, the roomy and comfortable living area of this Airbnb will surely perk you up every time you step foot in the room. Sit back, relax and just admire the view. The bedroom is large and cosy, and it comes well decorated with paintings reminiscent of Maine’s oceanfront.

There’s a comfortable bed that’s tucked into a corner where you can wake up with the sun’s gentle and warm rays caressing your face. The second bedroom is definitely more spacious and has a soft bed so you can have a peaceful sleep throughout the night. It also comes with some storage and hanging space to put your clothes and belongings away.

Spend some quality time with your friends or family in the screened-in porch. The rocky backdrop helps to make you feel as though you’re living amongst the mountains, which is truly a fun experience. Alternatively, spend some time outside on the deck. Enjoy cloud gazing under the expansive sky, or just watch the slow movements of the water.

21. Vibrant and cheery home on a farm, Freeport

This charming vacation rental is both bright and colourful, which makes it feel so cheery and welcoming. It has an open-concept living space, which is so beautifully decorated, so you’ll feel right at home. Cook to your heart’s content in the spacious and fully equipped kitchen. It comes well-stocked with spices and cookware to ensure you’ll have a fuss-free cooking experience. The brilliant and homey bedroom loft is the perfect space to retreat to after a long day out. That large and plush bed beckons you into its warm embrace, so just lie back and enjoy a snooze.

As the farm you’ll be living on is still operating, how about having a seat on the deck and soaking up the atmosphere?

22. Cosy, waterfront home with a view, Edgecomb (from USD 140)

Make use of the spacious and extremely well-appointed kitchen in this Airbnb on Maine’s coast to whip up a delicious meal. And, while the food’s still piping hot, serve it up immediately at the large dining table. Sit back, relax, and watch some of your favourite TV shows in the cosy living area. When you think it’s time to head to bed, the sofa can be used as an additional bed to accommodate two more people. The bedroom may be simple-looking, but it’s extremely comfortable. The plush, queen-sized bed is just about the perfect space to catch up on some well-deserved sleep. Even better, the bedroom comes with a dresser and closet so you can put your belongings away neatly. To top it all off, you have access to the private deck, which is the perfect place for a hangout session. Interact with your friends or family, or just share the gorgeous view with them.
