This Week on Upstater: Last Minute Holiday Rentals

For those of you who are only just realizing that you want to get out of town for the holidays, there are still some great rentals available, so we’re going to spend this week selecting some from and VRBO — the best rental resources, as far as we know. (If you have a line on other great renral resources, please, by all means, let us know).

One caveat about both those sites: the calendars aren’t always accurate. I got very excited about what looked like an available rental on last winter (yet another of the HomeAway companies, that owns VRBO, too) but turns out they just hadn’t updated the calendar, and it was gone. This recent NY Times article names some troubles with AirBnB, too.

That said, we’re going to take it on faith that these upstate New York vacation rentals are still available for the holidays. See you up there!
