    "I can't imagine a better spot if you're looking to see downtown Pittsburgh. We were there for a weekend series against the Pirates. Everything of interest is in walking distance, with the stadiums only a few blocks away. We happened to have perfect weather. We found the people in the area to be extremely friendly and always willing to help if asked for directions. The apartment has incredible views. It's nicely decorated, and it has a complete kitchen and a very comfortable king bed. There was a regatta on the river so there was a lot going on right outside of the apartment building. We had a great view of the 4th of July fireworks. The owners were easily accessible and they were a pleasure to deal with. They were kind enough to let us leave our luggage until after a game so we didn't have to keep it in the car before our departure. Our only complaint was with the. Gateway parking garage next door. We understood the increased rate for the holiday weekend, but the prices weren't communicated clearly and the daily rate was charged for each 16 hour period. Seems like a dishonest business practice. Overall this is a great choice if you're looking to stay in downtown Pittsburgh. We would absolutely recommend it."

  • An extremely peaceful and welcoming getaway.

    "The home was wonderful. We arrived extremely late but everything was ready for us, fresh flowers and all. We would definately stay there again if in the area and would recommend it for others. The property was beautiful and the views were incredible. It was an extremely relaxing and welcoming home. The home was stocked with dishes, linens, etc. and they even had new toothbrushes, supplies, etc. in case you forgot anything. It was great for families or just adults."

    "This home has everything to enjoy a wonderful vacation. The photos do not do this place justice! It is comfortable and so homey. The location is the best. We were right near the tennis courts and the pool. The pool is heated and large and the people working there were so nice. This home is close to so many activities. We loved the horsebacking riding, my son and daughter enjoyed the waterpark and they took a white water rafting trip down the Lehigh and had a ball! The owner, Jim, is so helpful and very good at getting back to you with any questions that you may have. We just had a wonderful vacation and we hope to return next year! Thanks again for allowing us to vacation in your beautiful home! I highly recommend this place to friends or anyone looking for a great vacation in the Poconos!"

  • Lakefront Townhome

    "We had a wonderful vacation at this well maintained town home. Awesome location, right on the lake. All the necessary amenities. Large, spacious & comfortable. Deck had a great view of the lake. Literally 30 ft from away. Had use of the owners kayaks, which we used daily. The kids loved traveling on the lake at sunset. The beach was fun and relaxing. Tree-line community was quiet and refreshing. Excellent communication with the owner. Sukla did a great job. Will definitely vacation here again."

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

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.

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.
