If you plan to visit the Finger Lakes region during spring, you’re in for a real treat. Sure, spring brings the start of the rainy season, but rain is a necessary part of nourishing the ground so that small seeds and buds can burst from the earth as lush green grass, flowers and plants. Spring is literally in the air, and you get whiffs of its aroma as you walk down the street.
Robins return to the region seeking earthworms for their young. Young deer wander into yards, and squirrels playfully hop from tree to tree. Local parks are accessible again for hiking and nature gazing, and our famous lakes once again shimmer in the sunshine. Spring has a way of making you want to burst into song – just like the songbirds. It’s the perfect time of year to rediscover the things that make this area so special with a stay at a Finger Lakes vacation rental.
As the weather turns warmer, and daylight lasts well into early evening, you’ll be able to hang out and enjoy everything the local towns and cities have to offer, which is why each spring people from all over the U.S. flock to the Finger Lakes. A number of people also come from other countries. Many come to see family members graduate from college. In fact, the weeks right before and after college graduation ceremonies are a busy time for area businesses offering Skaneateles luxury accommodations.
Area concerts, festivals and celebrations also attract numerous visitors. That’s why you should begin making plans now to find places to stay in the Finger Lakes. While our area has many choices when it comes to room rentals, savvier visitors seek accommodations that are a lot more comfortable – luxury vacation homes.
If you’re not familiar with vacation home rentals, these are simply homes that are temporarily rented to visitors for specific amounts of time. For instance, you can rent a nice home in the charming village of Skaneateles for a weekend, or even a full week. The reason why many visitors prefer this type of rental arrangement is that a home is far cozier than a cramped hotel room. There’s simply no comparison when you think about it.
Skaneateles luxury rentals offers homes of various sizes that feature furnished rooms where you can kick back and truly relax during your stay. You can live here just as you do at your own home, while enjoying beautiful views, and local hospitality. Our homes can accommodate couples, or a whole family. Groups of friends from time to time also find luxury home rental the ideal solution.
All of our homes include comfortable beds in real bedrooms; living rooms with flat screen TV, a fireplace, and a kitchen where you can cook your own meals, or enjoy take out food with ease. If you feel like having a party, or an outdoor barbecue, you’re free to do that anytime. Basically, the place is all yours to do as you please.
