The Hudson Valley is a favorite spot for summer travelers, many of whom opt to stay in a private vacation rental near the wine festival venue, bypassing overpriced hotels and enjoying the added perks of a vacation rental.
Liz Ernst of NYvacationrentals.com says that more vacation properties are being listed in the scenic Hudson Valley as travelers head here in droves for their summer vacations.
“An event like the Putnam County International Wine and Food Festival will get people to come and spend a long weekend or a week in the Hudson Valley area,” Ernst says.
Travelers looking for vacation lodgings in the Hudson Valley log on to NYVacationRentals.com and search for a cabin, condo, house or cottage that suits their needs. Whether they are staying for a night or two, or booking Hudson Valley vacation accommodations for the week, they’re discovering a growing number of area home and condo owners are making their private vacation properties available to families and groups of friends to rent close to the wine festival venue.
These private vacation rentals sleep anywhere from two to 20 people, providing an option to hotels that provide privacy and home-away-from-home amenities like a full kitchen and laundry facilities.
Ernst says that more travelers are looking for lower-cost options to hotel rooms when they visit the Hudson Valley or any of New York State’s popular vacation areas. New York vacation rental properties are gaining momentum as travelers juggle rising gas prices and other expenses in tough economic times.
“People love coming to the Hudson Valley for summer weekend getaways, week-long family vacations, or for an extended vacation because of the region’s scenic beauty and local charm,” Ernst says. “Now that so many people have been renting private vacation properties for short visits in places all across New York State and other areas for years, it’s a trend that never loses its appeal.
“Travelers opt for the convenience and value they find in a privately owned vacation rental condo or house, and they’re not going back to booking hotel rooms.”
Guests attending the wine festival are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets and relax on the venue’s lawn while listening to local and international bands throughout the day. Upon arriving at the festival, guests 21 and older receive a gift bag, wine glass and a festival journal.
A portion of the proceeds benefits Feed the Children's, "Americans Feeding Americans' Campaign" which benefits local food pantries and educational charities.
