  • Wonderful home to stay in for any vacation!

    "We stayed at this beautiful home for a gorgeous wedding that my niece had at the Lords Valley Country Club right inside the Hemlock Farms development. It exceeded all our expectations and allowed us to gather with family in the surrounding area, that we haven't seen for over 8 years. It has all the comforts of home, many toys to keep little ones happy and a large great room where you can cook a meal and enjoy visiting at the same time. The owners were wonderful to work with and we highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a Home Away from their own. Thanks again, Judy and Daniel"

  • Better than expected!

    "We rented Jean's place just last week 8/9-16 and had a wonderful time. All the positive reviews were spot on, the pictures don't do the chalet justice, and we were blown away with our welcome basket! I chose Jean's chalet as I was bringing my parents and sister up from Texas for a week to spend with our 2 year old son as it's easier to bring them up than travel with our son. The chalet has one bedroom on the 1st floor, a master on the second, and two bedrooms (including bunk) on the third floor so it was perfect for our arrangement - everyone had their own floor and bathroom. The chalet was very clean, even by my mom's standards, and the hot tub water was changed before we arrived. Arrowhead Lake's amenities were very nice and exceeded our expectations. Despite it being a very cool summer (didn't get above 72 during our stay) the pools were a comfortable temperature as they all have a solar heating system. The community also had various evening events during the summer though we only went to bingo, which was a riot. This was the first time I've ever played 'real' bingo and we had a blast with the older folks that were at our table. I have absolutely no negative comments about the chalet or the community and hope to own a place of my own there in the next few years. Until then, I'll be renting Jean's place!"

  • Great Weekend

    "We booked the cottage for a short weekend get away. Upon arrival we found the reviews to be accurate. The cottage is cozy, beautifully decorated & maintained and extremely clean. We caught trout in the pine creek which is only a short walk out the back door. Had bears visit Saturday Night and enjoyed a great meal at the log cabin restaurant."

  • Very Comfortable, Nice Family Ski Getaway!

    "We had a great stay with our three boys (2 teens and an 8-year-old) who all snowboard. The unit was huge, with plenty of room for us all to be together or spread out when we needed our space. The lower level was an extra bonus, with plenty of room for another family to stay. Well furnished, and fully stocked which made for a very comfortable stay. The unit was also close enough to walk to the slopes, which our boys loved the convenience of! (And my husband loved more because he didn't have to drive down the mountain every time someone wanted to hit the slopes or come in!) The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions and went out of her way to be accommodating. Would definitely stay at this unit 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

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.
