Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee, U.S.A.
The Tennesse National Park has pulled in big numbers for Airbnb lately. It saw an increase of 191 percent—across all seasons—this year, and the hospitality platform named it one of the “Must Visit” destinations for 2019.
Lombardy Mountains, Italy

Hop on a tiny mountain train to reach the historical Hotel Bellevue des Alpes, one of the most iconic inns in Switzerland. Curl up under in one of the modern rooms and watch snow-clouds gather around the legendary Eiger and Jungfrau mountains outside your window.
Lenox, Massachusetts, U.S.A
