Golf Getaways

As summer cools off, the first signs of fall can be seen in most parts of the country: school buses, after-school football practices, and piles of crunchy leaves that let you know winter is around the corner. The weather during this time is perfect for golfing. From coast to coast – and some areas in between - you’ll find several well-manicured and challenging golf courses to help put the zing back in your swing. With a vacation rental on the green, you’re sure to hit a hole in one by the end of your fall vacation, so book now.

Leaf Peeping

Autumn brings a flood of tourists to the East Coast where the trees change color in preparation for the upcoming winter. You haven’t experienced a true season change until you’ve seen the vibrant shades of gold, yellow, and crimson that brighten New England during the fall. But plan ahead -- these colors only last a few precious weeks. Bring your camera along to shoot some colorful photographs that will last forever, long after the leaves have fallen to the ground.

A mountain cabin rental in the White Mountains makes for an excellent autumn retreat. Mountain Retreats

When the weather cools off, head for the mountains. A mountain hike or bike trip is the best way to experience the changing of the seasons, first-hand. Plan a weekend camping trip in a secluded mountain cottage and view the bright yellow aspens of Colorado or the crimson maples of New York State. Several vacation rentals have outdoor hot tubs and other amenities to make your stay feel luxurious. Who says you have to rough it in order to enjoy the great outdoors? Book your mountain vacation rental today.

Lake Escapes

It’s still warm outside, so take advantage of the last few days of sunshine -- escape to the lake for some last-minute swimming, fishing, and sailing.  The best thing about a lake vacation is that anything goes, whether you feel like zipping around on a jet ski or prefer to sip lemonade on your lake house rental’s deck. Visit a lake on the Eastern Seaboard where the maple, birch and beech trees are most in bloom. There are few things as relaxing as lounging away those last few rays of sun after Labor Day, so act now and get ahead of other travelers with the same idea.
