The Best AirBnbs in the Lehigh Valley (& Some Surrounding Gems, Too)

January 8, 2018

The Lehigh Valley is conveniently located equidistant from both Philadelphia and New York City, and it has many interesting attractions along the way. There’s at least two to three different ski resorts within reasonable driving distance, making the valley a great place to visit, especially during the winter months. During the Summer, we host Musikfest, Allentown Fair, Dorney Park, Lehigh Valley Zoo, and more! Did I mention we also house quite a few colleges like Lehigh, Lafayette, and Muhlenberg?

A great way to make your vacation give you the comforts of home, AirBnb offers lodging anywhere from one room to an entire house at reasonable prices that help local homeowners! Airbnb can be an affordable alternative to stiff hotels when planning your vacation or college visits.

Being a Valley native, I wanted to take a look at the best Airbnb’s we have to offer. I have went ahead and added a few additional places just outside the Valley for you to choose from as well, since some of these are just outside the valley and may be closer to the other ski resort, Bear Creek! Some of these I just couldn’t resist adding. I mean, just look at them! 

Please read the reviews and make cautious note if the listing is a single room or whole house/apartment and use your best judgment as to what would work best for you. Also make note of the amenities and house rules, as these contain important information! Prices can change at owners discretion, but these were the listing prices at the time of publishing.

(Note: If you sign up using my link, you will receive $40 stay credit, which can cover almost a whole night!)

Here are some of the best AirBnb’s the Lehigh Valley has to offer.

(I’ve broken them down by area and then put them in alphabetical order, so these are not in any particular order besides such.)
