Situated a little more than a half-hour’s drive from downtown Boston, the North Shore is the ideal spot to spend your holidays. While many folks think of coastal New England as a summer destination, the fun doesn't stop after Labor Day! The holiday season is a great time to experience coastal New England.
We've compiled the top 7 reasons to rent a vacation home for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, or for any other important family gathering.
7. In a vacation rental, there's no stress over hosting
Not everyone enjoys hosting others at the holidays and even those who love it can get tired of it after doing it year in and year out. It can take hours (or days) preparing a home for guests and there's pressure on the host to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Even the most close-knit families have their tense moments, especially when home turf is involved. Why not meet at a neutral location and start a new family tradition?
6. Pepare a home-cooked holiday meal but keep your own home kitchen spotless
Since all of our vacation rental homes have kitchens, you can still collaborate on a home-cooked holiday feast, while your home kitchen stays mess-free. Don't feel like cooking? There are plenty of restaurants in the area that are open for special holiday meals.
5. There's room for everyone in a vacation rental
Finding a vacation rental big enough for your whole group is easy. Just think -- no sleeping bags or air mattresses required. This is also a great option for our local friends who want to invite their loved ones for the holidays but just don't have enough room at their own place.
Don't let this happen to you!
Why not do this instead?
4. Your dog deserves a vacation, too
The holidays just aren't the holidays if you have to leave someone behind! Plus, kennel costs can seriously chip away at your vacation budget. Our selection of pet-friendly rental homes ensure that your furry friends won't get left out of the festivities.
3. You can have a holiday home with a view
Many of our vacation rental homes have a view of the water, making any holiday scenic and memorable. We've got homes overlooking glassy harbors as well as ones that look out over dramatic crashing surf. Whatever your preference, you can let your stress go out with the tide.
2. Cape Ann and the North Shore are just as amazing in the off-season
Fall and winter north of Boston is jam-packed with fun stuff to do. The beaches in winter are chilly but still breathtaking and hiking in the woods is always popular pastime. And don't forget sledding! Around here, you often see just as many parents as kids on the hills. In addition to the natural amenities of the area, there are multiple local Christmas parades & festivals the Middle Street Walk in Gloucester, seasonal plays starring adorable children, tours of stunning houses, special museum events, and more.
1. Take advantage of off-season vacation rental pricing
Need we say more? Vacation home rental rates are significantly lower in the fall and winter months than in the summer. Our large selection of rental properties will suit every need and wallet.
