Have you ever considered renting a Poconos Mountains vacation home, but thought it was only something for those people who are rich?
Renting a vacation home is a relaxing option for an overnight or week-long stay, especially for larger families. Families of five and more have a hard time fitting into a hotel room. Families either have to book two rooms or get a cot and squeeze into the room spending their vacation tripping over one another and sharing a single small bathroom. Not to mention they have to go out for every dinner spending big bucks on all meals!
Vacation home rentals allow more room for you to spread out, they usually have a kitchen to prepare less expensive meals (including a refridgerator so you can buy groceries and save money!), most have plenty of rooms and beds for everyone to have their own space, sometimes a yard to let the kids experience the outdoors and your destination, and often the price is comparable to or less than a hotel room or the rooms needed for the same number of people.
Renting a Poconos vacation home can be really very simple. The best way to find a vacation home rental is by word of mouth. If a friend mentions a great vacation home stay, ask them about the community, what they did in the Poconos and about the home itself. The second best way is to use the reservation engine above, enter your dates of stay and nights, leave the rooms at 1 (each room is a total townhouse unit) and click on Search for Availability. The results page will show you homes and rates. If it is showing it is available at the rate shown. You can reserve online with an immediate email, back to you, showing your reservation. You will then receive a lease and instructions via email within 48 hours. Sign, send back and you're ready for a great fun vacation.

If a homeowner or rental agent can not or will not answer your questions, move on to the next listing.
Since some Poconos rental homes require you to provide bedding and towels, which can take up a monstrous amount of space in your luggage, you will need to get creative with your packing (You'll only need to pack half as much if there are a washer and dryer). The space-saving bags that roll out the excess air without a vacuum are great for saving space when packing blankets and pillows.
Some Poconos vacation homes offer linens and housekeeping between renters. If you can find a rental with that option available, you'll probably spend a bit more, but all the extra stuff won't be necessary. Make the most of your stay by treating yourselves to a few meals out and enjoy some down time at the end of each day talking about all your Poconos activities and fun times.
