Recent Washington State reviews

  • Great Vacation Home

    "This home was an outstanding place to stay during our week in Friday Harbour. It's well maintained and simply beautiful. The owners have taken the time to ensure that you are never bored while there. Between the board games, DVD'S, ping pong table, or just sitting on the back deck drinking a glass of wine, you'll never be bored. Oh and there are frequent visits from the local deer. We'll definitely stay here again."

  • Perfect place!

    "We are here for the Ironman 70.3, and while I'd like to say all bad things to discourage anyone from renting it before us for 2016, I just can't. Perfect location, every amenity you could need in a home, the beds are like sleeping at a four star hotel (linens, duvet, mattress, all wonderful), lots of parking, roomy living room, and everything looks modern instead of slightly run down (like it can in some home rentals), the upstairs room has plenty of space for four people and the twin beds, and the owners have been great to work with. The only complaint I have is the can opener doesn't work very well. It it says a lot when the only complaint a person has is about a can opener. There is no air conditioning so make sure to bring fans just in case the weather gets warm. We we certainly be renting it again next year, and possibly the house next door as well. Thank you!"

  • Elk Trail Lodge

    "What a beautiful place to stay. Elk roaming in the front yard and mountain peaks full of snow. It was everything and more than I had expected. Cabin was clean, cozy and had everything we needed. The owners had it decorated for Christmas which was great because it gave us a chance to have Christmas with my son who is stationed at Ft. Lewis. It was a couple hours drive from Seattle airport, but very easy to get to. I would recommend it to friends and relatives. If we go back, we will definitely stay there again. Mt. Rainier is absolutely breathtaking. Being from the south, playing in the snow was great. Thank you again Carie for a wonderful and relaxing time."

Washington State Travel Tips

Visitors to Washington State Vacation Rentals

Washington State is known for its National Parks, beautiful coastline and towering mountain ranges. It is a travel destination that attracts nature lovers and outdoor adventurers. In every season, there are a wide range of activities that visitors can participate in. For those who enjoy a more leisurely vacation, you can spend your day birdwatching or whale watching from the deck of your Olympic Peninsula vacation home on the coast. The spectacular scenery has also been known to attract many artists and photographers. Washington has a rich gold mining and pioneer history. For those with an interest in the state's historical heritage, there are many museums, cultural centers and historic places of interest to visit. You can either take a guided tour or explore on your own. The city of Seattle is a fascinating destination to visit and a place where people with an interest in science will find many places of interest to visit. In the winter months, snow sports enthusiasts head to Cascade Mountains vacation rentals to enjoy some excellent skiing and snowboarding.

There are also several cultural centers where you can learn about the native traditions of the region. The mountains offer a wide range of trails open to hikers and mountain bikers. In the winter months, the same trails are where you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing as well as snowboarding.

Seasons to Visit Washington State Lodging

Washington State is one of those great year-round destinations. Each season brings a transformation to the landscape and a wide range of activities to be enjoyed. For those who have an interest in things scientific and historic, you need not be too selective of your travel season. Most museums and attractions stay open all year long. In fact, often it is better to travel in the low season as you can avoid lines and crowds. In peak summer season, the attractions can get very busy.

If you enjoy outdoor adventure activities such as mountain biking, hiking or climbing, the summer season is the best time for you to visit. The weather generally starts to warm in May, and by June and July you can take advantage of the long summer days. The season lasts until early September when the fall season brings cooler temperatures. The winter months bring snow for most parts of Washington State. The taller mountain landscapes are transformed into a snow skiing paradise. The many ski resorts are popular vacation destinations. The peak winter travel season is during December and January. Depending on the snowfall, the ski season can last until April.

Traveling to Washington State

There are two main access points to Washington State. Both Seattle vacation rentals and Portland rentals are near international airports which connect Washington State with the rest of North America. There are frequently scheduled commercial flights on most North American airlines. While Portland is officially in Oregon, it lies just south of the border with Washington State and provides an easy access point for the southern region of the state. A secondary regional airport at Spokane is the main travel hub for the eastern part of Washington State. There are good road links within the state and with neighboring states and Canada, which make getting to and around Washington State easy. There is a limited rail network which operates only on major routes.
