"Holiday Cottages" in the US?

Postby Strawberry » Sat Mar 03, 2007 9:46 pm

Does anyone know if it's possible to rent the equivalent of a UK "holiday cottage" in the US? We have often taken our holidays over here a holiday cottage, and but I don't remember such a concept even existing in the US when I lived there. Anyone know if they do them over there?

We'd be using it as a place to move into when we arrive instead of staying with my parents... so we are talking about the Pittsburgh area, not exactly a typical holiday area! :roll: :D That probably reduces the chances. =/

If it is an option to stay in a holiday house of some sort, it would work much better than staying in my parent's house, and probably much cheaper than staying in a nearby hotel.

I'd appreciate any thoughts. Cheers. :)

I live in a resort town on the coast of Maine...we have holiday cottages...but, they are very expensive (and would not help you in the Pittsburg area!) Often times they have cottages to let by the week if there is a large lake nearby. Good luck!

Stephanie

Try Extended Stay hotels.



I only googled it because I remember there being extended stay hotels in the Dallas area - and some even have kitchens, etc.

Let us know how you get on.

Hi Stephanie,

There are vacation homes, although they can be pricey. You might see if there is a Craig's list website or short-term let apt/home listing in your area as you might find someone who is away for a few months and wants to let out their place.

We took a furnished corporate flat that is more reasonable than a hotel, and gives us plenty of space, a full kitchen, etc. For us it was the perfect solution as we wanted our own space while house-hunting, yet we didn't want to rush out and try to furnish a place. The place we got has open-ended leases so we can move anytime with 30 days notice. Just a suggestion-
