Top 5 Reasons to Stay in a Vacation Rental vs. a Hotel 

1. Save Money 

Let’s face it, family vacations are expensive. Browse this study on regional travel and tourism in the Finger Lakes. Between airfare and lodging for several people, you can easily rack up thousands of dollars. So, saving money wherever you can is crucial. Staying in a vacation rental is a cost-effective way to travel with a large group!  

Why book multiple hotel rooms when you can stay in a rental property that can accommodate your entire group? Even better, you can save money on your rental by booking directly through our website (say “goodbye!” to hidden, third-party fees) and by browsing our selection of current specials

2. Optimal Privacy 

Don’t want to be kept awake at night from the sound of your hotel room neighbors or guests in the hallways? Book a vacation rental for optimal privacy! A whole-house rental means you’ll have the entire place to yourself, so you won’t have to deal with other guests. 

3. Cook Meals at Home 

When you stay in a hotel, you have to dine out for every meal. Want to save money on eating out? Stay in a vacation rental where you can cook meals in a well-equipped kitchen. Be sure to take a look at our vacation rental meal prep tips for information on grocery delivery services, tips for cooking at your rental, and more! 

4. Awesome Amenities 

Trade in the hotel’s indoor pool for a hot tub! Our Finger Lakes rentals offer amenities that hotels simply can’t match. Our amenities include pet-friendly stays, hot tubs, fireplaces, washers and dryers, dishwashers, and more! 

5. Travel With a Larger Group 

Did you know that 44% of people aged 18-35 travel with their children? Kids can go stir crazy in a hotel room, which is another great reason to book a vacation rental instead of a hotel room. Our rentals offer space for the kids to run around and play. Some of them are even large enough to accommodate family reunion-sized vacations!
