Vacation Money-Saving Tip: State Park Cottage Rentals

This past weekend, we traveled from our home in PA to Cedarville University near Springfield, Ohio for Homecoming Weekend. Our little ones (ages 3 months and 19 months) did surprisingly well on the 8 hour drive!

We have found a great way to stretch our vacation dollars and to have a more enjoyable overnight experience for all of us--state park cottage rentals! We were able to stay in a two-bedroom cottage (that sleeps eight) for $85 per night. Our cottage at Buck Creek State Park included a full kitchen with dishes, pots/pans, and appliances; a flat-screen TV with Direct TV; towels and linens; a screened-in porch and a grill and fire ring. We loved having the extra room to spread out.

Isaac is excited to watch Mickey Mouse since we don't have cable at home!
