If you only wanted to escape the city, you could just book a hotel. The point of an Airbnb is to envision yourself living there full time. Or to use a hot tub without other random hotel guests. 

Below, 10 of the best West Virginia Airbnbs that would all make excellent cold-weather getaways from Washington, D.C., or elsewhere. Most have hot tubs. (Which are better in when it’s freezing. Especially if it has snowed and you can go from hot tub to snow to hot tub to…you get the picture.)
