  • Great Mother's Day

    "We had an extended weekend for a family gathering---6 adults, 2 children and a dog. The house was perfect! We have stayed at this owner's lakefront properties before, but they were all booked so we tried out this house and were very happy. There is a large HDTV upstairs with plenty of DVDs, which kept the kids busy, and there is a second refrigerator and kitchen next to the pool table area, so we were able to keep all of our sodas and beer cold without cramming the regular refrigerator. We used the pool table and hot tub non-stop during our stay, too, and it really helped that the hot tub is covered overhead, because we had a rainy day but were able to stay in it anyway. The beds and furniture were in good condition, and the bathrooms were very obviously redone and were very nice and clean. The house in is an area that has a lot of local restaurants, most reasonably priced, but there is only one food store really close, and it is just a 7/11 type place, so you should bring your food or make a trip to the town nearby for any major food purchases--but we didn't find that to be much of a problem. There are a lot of deer, and you will see them every day, and they will come closer if you throw them any food. We got lots of great deer pictures, and our dog is even in one! We had a great time, the owner Michael was very easy to work with, and we will now not be so picky about being lakefront--this house was very roomy and well kept. Thanks, everyone said they loved it!"

  • Great location

    "Just left from ski weekend at Onalake home. Had a great time. Home was very clean and had everything you could need. Sometimes homes look better in pictures, this home was even better than the pictures. Location can't be beat. Extremely close to big boulder and Jack Frost ski mountain. Homeowners were extremely nice and very accommodating!!! I can see why they have several retuning guests!!!"

  • An amazing nest for we 2 lovebirds!

    "When my fiance comes to visit, we typically rent a hotel room for a few days. Last visit, however, we looked on VRBO at the recommendation of a relative. We wanted something more personal than the typical hotel room, with all the amenities of home. This home is IT (but decorated way better than my home, and right off South Street, a place we love!)! We loved being able to park my car (with the provided parking pass) nearby and just walk around all weekend for meals, drinks, shopping, and wandering. The home is immaculately cleaned, decorated luxuriously, and I especially loved the kitchen and the whirlpool tub. We were able to enjoy the city when we wanted to, or enjoy our own little world when we felt like it. Thank you!"

  • Perfect Family Rental

    "There are many great things I could say about this property, the best thing though is that I would rent this property again and again. If you want a nice place to stay with your family, then this is the place for you. The house was clean and comfortable. The facilities at the lake were all I could ask for and we spent most of our time there. I particularly enjoyed renting a boat, and taking my son fishing on the lake."

Pennsylvania Travel Tips

Things to See and Do at Pennsylvania Vacation Rentals

One of Pennsylvania's main attractions is its excellent amusement parks. On Lake Erie, there is the famous Splash Lagoon. This amusement park is a giant indoor water park where you can enjoy slides and rides, have a lazy tube ride or surf in a wave pool. Because it is an indoor venue, it can be enjoyed in every season, even when it is snowing outside. Other notable amusement parks include Conneaut Lake Park, Dutch Wonderland, Hershey Park, and Sandcastle Water Park. Pennsylvania is also home to some of the country's best museums. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is well known for its top quality exhibits. Pittsburg is famous for the Carnegie Museums, and Scranton is home to the unique Houdini Museum.

Visitors to Pennsylvania Lodging

Pennsylvania is a great family vacation destination. The state is home to several top amusement parks which are ideal for family fun days. There are also more than 120 state parks where you can enjoy nature trails, fishing and hunting. Philadelphia vacation rentals are near a wealth of interesting museums for you to explore as a family. Music and art enthusiasts will enjoy the many festivals that take place throughout the year. These are usually weekend or week-long events where there are excellent music and entertainment combined with food and craft stalls. There are several casinos that provide endless gaming entertainment. Golfers have a choice of top-quality golf courses at which to enjoy 18 holes of golf. Philadelphia is also home to several major and minor league sports teams. Sports fans from all over the region often flock to the city when there is a big game.

Seasons to Travel to Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has a variable climate, depending on where in the state you are staying. Most of Pennsylvania enjoys a humid continental climate. Rain occurs throughout the year and heavy snowfall can occur in the winter months, especially in the far northwestern parts of the state. Philadelphia, because it is closer to the coast, benefits from a more subtropical climate. There really is no off season in which to visit Pennsylvania. Poconos resorts and Endless Mountain vacation rentals are a four-season destination, and visitors who enjoy snow sports will love the icy winter months when the state benefits from heavy snowfall. If you are wanting to explore the countryside, summertime would be a more ideal time to visit as getting around during this season is more convenient. It is advisable to listen to the weather reports when traveling as tornadoes frequently occur during the hot summer months. In the cities, the attractions of museums, shopping and entertainment are available all year round.
