When we think of a nice relaxing trip, our mind conjures one of these scenes:

 

a)      a hill station with mesmerising view of the mystique mountains, or

b)     a sea shore with energetic beaches, where crashing of waves, despite drawing you into its mystery, soothes your soul or

c)      a nice lake or creek where the flow of the water drains all your stress and worries

 

Imagine living between the magical Pocono mountains, or enjoying honeymoon in Maryland surrounded by the mesmerising blue waters or prom night at a bay-side in Delaware. How wonderful would it be to sleep on the top of mountains with the world at your feet, to wake up and breathe the fresh air of the mountains, or wake up with thecreek at your doorstep or sound of beach waves from your window!

 

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could fulfill this fantasy?

 

But with the hefty hotel room prices, expensive food and other travel cost, it is never possible to just enjoy these simple nature’s gift. We have to always plan to visit nearby places by cramming so many things in our schedule, take smaller rooms to reduce stay costs and carry food. The sentence in itself sounds tiring.

 

But, we at Grand Leisure Travel have a found a way to make your dream come true. We offer rental residences which have all the amenities and luxuries to turn your dream into a reality. You not only get a chance to live surrounded by nature’s gift but you can also swimming in the pools, relax in the hot tubs, enjoy a gaming room with your siblings and create memories to last a lifetime.

 

Our featured bedroom houses are the perfect place for a family get-together.

      Adequate spaces with very economic costs. Unlike hotels, we provide comfy homey feels with lots of spaces to accommodate as many people as your like.

      It provides you with the opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled evening splashing around in the pool, pulling pranks or just relaxing in a hot tub.

      It gives you a chance to treat your spouse with self-made romantic meal or BBQ outdoors laughing, dancing and enjoying with friends or siblings or give yourself a nice baking therapy. There is no rush to go anywhere, you can cook at an easy pace, making the most of your evenings. And you get the added advantage of saving on your food expenses.

      Do not worry about not packing adequate pair of clothes. We provide a laundry room so that you can pack light and do not have to burden yourself with planning and packing. 

 

Your vacation home is your little piece of paradise. A place where you escape the stresses of everyday life to lay on the beach, take in a round of golf, build a snowman with your grandchildren, or simply take a nap on the porch swing.

Vacations are not tiring

 

“Today is so hard to be back at work. I just had a vacation, now I’m so tired, I just want to sleep.”

 

All of us have heard or spoken this phrase, time and again, from/to our friends, co-workers or relatives. We plan a vacation to help us relax from our routine tiring lives and explore places we wish to visit, but when we come back we are more tired than ever.

 

According to various studies and surveys conducted by a leading universities and doctors, more than 60% of the vacationers felt more tired when they returned home than when they left.

 

The term ‘Vacation’ means the act of taking a leisure break to visit exciting places and return home rejuvenated and happy. But, like a lot of things, our lack of knowledge, has resulted in insulting the meaning of vacation.

 

According to the studies conducted, the main reason for vacations being tiring is the nature of the trip itself. Before the trip, we, especially women, plan what to pack and spend a large amount of time rushing to make sure nothing is forgotten. To take the trip, we stay at work till late and at home, to ensure everything will run smoothly in our absence. In our vacation, we stay at hotels with unfamiliar environments, which affects our mental peace and sleeping patterns. The food at such trips is always eaten out, resulting in stomach disturbances and no-satisfaction. To take the maximum advantage of the trip at the minimum cost, we book cheaper hotels, which may increase our conveyance time, then wake up earlier than usual, sleep later than usual - all of these results in lack of sleep.

 

Due to our past experiences and what we see around, we have accepted that vacations are always supposed to be tiring. We, at Grand Leisure Travel, ask for a chance to prove you wrong.

 

Picture this, the grand happy fresh return post-vacation-

 

Our motto at Grand Leisure Travel is to make your vacation “planned with just a chat, relaxing as a trip to the spa, comfortable as home, luxurious as dreamed but still within budget and exotic, exploring and exciting as ever.” We make sure that 100% of our clients come back happy and rejuvenated.

 

To ensure that we deliver what we promise, we offer residences for vacation that are designed by renowned local artisans, featuring luxury residences in a wide variety of styles, along with handy amenities like Pools, Hot Tubs, Game Rooms, and many other outdoor amenities including beaches, lakes and creeks. To make sure that none of the reasons, as discovered from the studies, make your vacation tiring, these residences have kitchen to take care of your food habits and also reduce your costs, laundry rooms so that you can pack lightly and still have enough, close vicinity to places you want to enjoy so that your sleep is not compromised and the right homey feel to not disturb your sleep.

 

All you have to do is chat with us, ask for a call back or book online, and you will have the world’s best feel of an actual relaxing yet exploring vacation.

            In order to make sure your stay goes as planned, we have a property manager in the Poconos who is available 24/7 in the event that something goes wrong. She has an entire maintenance and cleaning crew that is easily accessible and able to head over in the case of an emergency. She is reachable by phone and email throughout your stay. Her contact information will be provided to you in your welcome letter.

5.    Do I need to bring anything other than food and toiletries to the home?           

            Our homes come fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy your trip. From pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils and glassware to linens, towels, toilet paper and firewood. However, if you plan on cooking several large meals and spending a lot of time in the home, we ask that you bring extra black garbage bags and paper towels. Otherwise, you’re all set!  

 

Let's Beat The Winter Blues

Summer is always fun, but who said you can’t enjoy the winter weekends just as much? Let the Pocono Mountains become your playground this holiday season.

If you haven't heard, the Poconos has some of the most impressive ski trails in the Northeast. That's why our homes are centrally located- we are just minutes from Camelback, Blue Mountain and Shawnee. The Poconos includes not one or two, but seven state parks, six designated natural areas, seventeen state designated game areas, and the Delaware Water Gap National Park. If outdoorsy people aren't in the Poconos, they're in the wrong place.

You can fulfill all of your vacation needs here, whether you want to plan an exciting week of family fun or a romantic getaway for two, and everything in between. We’ve partnered with some of the most popular resorts in the Poconos to give you easy access to affordable ski vacations or weekend getaways.

Enjoy your stay in one of our beautiful Pocono homes all located in East Stroudsburg, 5-10 minute drive from Camelback Mountain, The Delaware Water Gap, Mount Airy Casino, The Crossings Outlet Mall and let’s not forget Aquatopia, the indoor water park for adults and kids.  

 Come join us this winter in the Pocono Mountains- where the fun starts and never ends.

Oktoberfest Events in the Poconos

As a vacation home rental company, we are (pretty much) experts on the best time of year to travel, especially when it comes to heading up to the Pocono Mountains. As September comes to an end, we are entering an incredible season full of great food, beer and other outdoorsy experiences. The Grand Leisure Travel team is looking forward to a number of activities taking place these next few weeks.

Our personal favorite event, the Hawley Harvest Hoedown, will begin on October 2nd. Count yourself in for some cider tasting, live music and family activities. The Coal Town Rounders, Roosevelt Dime and Caribou Mountain Collective will be blessing us with great bluegrass and folk music on Saturday, October 3rd at the Ritz Theater. 

An awesome event for the whole family is the annual pumpkin carving and storytelling dinner. The Settlers Inn hosts tons of Pocono visitors for a crafty night of Fall fun. 

And for our active travelers, the 2nd Annual Lake to Lake 8k Trail Run and Woods Walk will take participants on a course that goes through 550 acres of nature trails that wind through the park. Proceeds from this event will benefit Lacawac's preservation, environmental programs, scientific research and public awareness outreach. 

We hope to see you there.

Happy Fall!

Fall in the Pocono Mountains

As October approaches, we know it's time to get serious. The fall semester has started and it's time to stick to that budget we've all been anxiously anticipating all summer long. That's why, at Grand Leisure Travel, we've made vacation planning easy for those weekends you'll want to escape from the harsh realities of work and school.You're probably thinking: what is there to do in October? The water parks are closed and the ski lodges are not yet open. However, Autumn is one of the best times of year to visit the Poconos. Watch the leaves change colors in our woods-filled backyards. Oktoberfest, the Mount Pocono Harvest Festival,Pumpkin Fest and the Hotel of Horror Haunted House are all popular attractions for our renters. We realize that each attraction costs money and planning a trip can put a dent in your wallet. That's why fall rates are starting as low as $299 a night! 

Come join us in the Poconos this fall for an inexpensive yet impressive getaway.
