The Best Over-the-Top Winter VRBOs

The winter months can be tough: The days are shorter and darker, the temps can be downright bone-chilling, and the memories of warm summer months feel like they couldn’t be further in the rearview mirror.

Whether the anecdote to the winter blahs is a winter wonderland or a balmy beach, we’ve rounded up a handful of VRBOs for chasing anyway whatever ails you. These over-the-top vacation homes range from $100+ a night to well over $10,000+ a night – so there are both bargains and splurges to dream about!

Whistler is of course home to the Blackcomb Ski Resort—one of the largest ski resorts in North America—so it only makes sense that the ski town just outside of Vancouver would make for an ideal wintertime getaway for snowsport fiends. The Northwood Chalet Whistler in particular was made for an over-the-top winter getaway thanks to the stunning A-frame design and uninterrupted views of the snow-covered mountain ranges and stunning Canadian wilderness.
