Attending school this past year was filled with the usual ups and downs that come with getting a great education. Your school or collage aged student paid their dues by attending class, studying, writing papers and growing as a person. Now, it’s time for you to reward them by letting them relax and finding some fun things to do over the summer. Being a family in the Finger Lakes puts you in the perfect place to get out and explore other towns and places that your family didn’t have time to do during the school year. School, work and other responsibilities take up a lot of time, preventing your family from fully appreciating everything this region has to offer.
If your family is sticking around for the summer months, this is the perfect opportunity for you to plan a little getaway for your family. Did you know that there are some amazing vacation rentals in the Finger Lakes that offer you better amenities than hotels?
Finger Lakes vacation rentals are a marvelous alternative to traditional hotels. This type of rental involves reserving a beautiful home to stay at for a few days, a week or longer. The cool thing about this is that these rentals feature modern kitchens that allow you to fix your own breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can shop at the local grocery store and prepare those recipes you’ve been meaning to try. They also have spacious living and dining rooms that accommodate several people. You can stretch out, hold chat sessions, watch TV, read, listen to music or hang out on the porch (home rentals).
You will quickly find that these home-like settings provide you with more value than what is ordinarily available in cramped hotel rooms. For example, most hotels don’t offer you a gorgeous view near a picturesque lakefront. If you know anything about living out by the lake here or anywhere else, it costs a pretty penny. Yet, you and your family can experience this by choosing a Finger Lakes vacation rental home.
But, of course, you don’t want to spend all your time hanging out at the rental place. There’s got to be other things to do, right?
As a matter of fact, there is plenty to do on your getaway vacation. You can choose to go biking, hiking, boating, sightseeing or shopping every day. Spend a day along a nearby wine trail tasting world-class vintages from local wineries. Take pictures while exploring charming towns and villages. Attend a food and music festival. See a live theater show. Indulge in a day spa. Hey, and don’t forget to visit a local park that has a waterfall. The natural beauty in the area is stunning.
There are still a few available vacation homes for rent in Skaneateles that have tons of amenities. Grab your summer getaway spot now, before they’re all snapped up.
