I admit, I am not a hotel fan. When I think of all the hundreds of thousands of people sleeping in that same bed, using that same chair and bathroom.... yeeeek, it gives me the heebie-jeebies. We much prefer finding vacation rentals for our longer stays away from home. Here's a great site I found to keep handy: MrVacation.com. Cute and memorable name, don't you think? Vacation rentals are truly wonderful, I think. Renting a home or cabin for a week is a superb way to really enjoy the local area you're visiting and to get to know the people and the cultural flavor of the area.
Mrvacation.com has a terrific searchable United States map on the front page- quick and easy. You can also search MrVacation.com for worldwide rental homes, condos, villas, and townhouses. And if you have a home or condo you'd like to rent, you can list it at MrVacation.com. I know that this is becoming more popular among people here in Upstate-- some folks here rent their homes for half of the year so that they can go to warmer states for the winter. It's the best of both worlds-- the folks get to spend winters down in Florida or in California (and you can find very nice California vacation rentals or take a Florianopolis Vacation) and they get income from renting out their NY home for people who want to enjoy our winter sports. You can list vacation homes for free at MrVacation.com. There's a few gorgeous cabins for rent off Lake Ontario, I see!
It's a great site to look for vacation rentals. Bookmark this one!
