Traveling for holidays is not a new concept, millions of people travel every year order to celebrate with friends and family. If you have every been near an airport for Christmas, you know that holiday travel is a mess. From booking hotel rooms to ensuring everyone has a good time, holidays can be a mess. St. Patrick’s Day is not a holiday commonly thought of for travel, but we assure you that a St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado and out vacation homes will change your mind instantly.
Looking for Where to Stay for St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado
Part of the stresses of holiday travel include where to stay. Traditional hotel and resort options always come with hidden fees and restrictions that would drive anyone mad. We suggest another option: a vacation rental!
Instead of booking a small hotel room, you can rent out an entire home, condo, or townhome and enjoy access to an entire home, including a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable rooms with fresh linens, and in many instances, amenities that you simply cannot get with other accommodations. This is especially true of our rentals in Snowmass; many of our amenities highlight the beautiful scenery that Snowmass provides such as outdoor decks, hot tubs, and large windows with picturesque views.
One of the unforeseen expenses of the traditional hotel or resort options is the substantial cost of eating. With a vacation rental, guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen in which to cook their own meals. Although you probably want to taste a bit of the local cuisine, eating out for every meal eats up a large portion of your vacation budget. If you are looking to cut back on your vacation costs or even just looking to prioritize where you spend your money on vacation, a full kitchen will help. The ability to cook one meal a day will provide you with much more spending money on your trip. Since St. Patrick’s Day generally involves more drinking and celebrating than most vacations, you can save your money for the more fun parts of your trip!
New Ways to Celebrate
Another great benefit of a vacation rental is the new ways to celebrate a traditional St. Patrick’s Day. Many of the vacation rentals in Colorado have been fully upgraded with new state of the art amenities. Many of the rentals in Snowmass even have available hot tubs, movie theaters, large backyards, and really anything you are looking for to take your Colorado St. Patrick’s Day to a whole new level. Instead of being forced to stay in a small room, you get to choose the home you rent from any of the available rentals in the area. This means you are free to choose which amenities fit your planned vacation. If a hot tub or scenic views are a must have, you can choose from rentals that meet these requirements. The freedom to choose your own adventure lies with a vacation rental.
