How to Find Discounts for Lake House Rentals for Large Groups
My best and most useful advice is to be an informed renter.
Research, research, research. Make sure to also speak with the property owner of the property you’re interested in renting – especially when you’re renting a vacation rental by owner.
They are typically local, or at least have experienced and spent time in the area of their property!
Take a deep dive into the specific region you are thinking of renting, ask about discounts, consider what luxuries you’re really planning on using and how much space you really need.
Either way, research and communicate. This way you can make the best of your vacation without breaking the bank entirely!
