Top 3 Vacation Rental 365 Homes of 2018
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Monday, February 11, 2019

2018 was an amazing year for Vacation Rental 365! We brought 13 new properties into the Vacation Rental 365 family and we cannot wait to see what's in store for us in 2019. Here are the top 3 homes that guests couldn't get enough of in 2018!

Pine Ridge Estate

By far our largest home, this beautiful 7,000 square foot estate is the epitome of luxury. This home has an open layout that showcases the high, vaulted ceilings and beautiful furnishings. The covered outdoor patio features a state of the art gas BBQ and gas burner cook top. Above the garage there's a private game room and kitchenette. Above all, there's a wonderful private hot tub so guests can soak their troubles away. Hailed by our guests as being a comfotable and peaceful retreat, a past guest wrote that: 

"This lodge is perfect for a lare group. It's spacious, well laid out, comfortable, and yet elegant. There is plenty of space for cooking and the kitchen is more than adequately stocked. The outdoor space is also comfortable and peaceful with a great BBQ, picnic tables and outdoor heaters. We saw wild turkeys and deer during our stay! The furniture is also very cozy to snuggle up on in front of a warm fire. The bedrooms all have attached bathrooms and the beds are comfortable. There are no shortage of things to do in this area. You won't be disappointed."

Evergreen Mountain Lodge

It's no secrety why this home is popular with our guests. This home has a massive, AWESOME, game room in the garage. There are hours of fun to be had in the heated garage game room in Evergreen Mountain Lodge. You can play Rock Band on the XBox360 Kinect, shoot some pool, or enjoy some old fashioned arcade games like Space Mission Pinball! But that's not all! There's also a Ping Pong Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, and a Smart TV with Internet Movie Streaming. There's no need to go to an arcade when you have an arcade in your Vacation Home. For more homes that have amazing game rooms, check out our blog post. Not only that, but guests can rent this home and the neighboring home, Cascade Mountain Villa, and sleep up to 30 people! As a past guest so eloquently put it:

"This 3-day retreat at Evergreen Mountain Lodge was a wonderful experience and everything we needed for our guests. The space was huge even for our party of 20. The open space made it comfy enough to have movie nights in the livingroom where most of us naturally gathered. The bonus was not the playroom, jacuzzi, or firepit but our special guests: DEER! We were surprised at how they just appeared in the backyard while we were having breakfast. Our neighbors were actually noisier when they passed by but we still had a good time with no complaints. Definitely will recommend again."

Elk Run Lodge

This beautiful home in Suncadia Resort is located on the 4th green of the Rope Rider Golf Course, making for amazing views and nearby activities. The game room downstairs is just detached enough from the rest of the home that the kids can have a great time while the adults are relaxing upstairs. The home itself is amazingly beautiful, showcasing exposed beams, gas fireplaces, and stunning accents that are sure to impress. Guests can enjoy the heated seating area on the main floor, or cook up a feast in the spacious chef's kitchen. Whatever you are looking for in a vacation home, Elk Run Lodge has it, and more!

"We rented a couple of rental properties in Suncadia to accommodate a large group, celebrating my parents 60th anniversary. The Elk Run Lodge was by far the best of all. Your back yard being the golf course, views from upper and lower level decks is gorgeous. Enough open concept play area downstairs. Loaded master bedroom and comfortable other rooms. Most importantly, very accessible and helpful representatives when you rent it from their website."

5 Vacation Rental 365 Homes with EPIC Game Rooms
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Wednesday, January 16, 2019

At Vacation Rental 365 we have a wide variety of homes that include Ping Pong Tables, Foosball, or Pop-A-Shot. But for the homes with the most epic game rooms, check out the list below. These homes are perfect for families with lots of kids or guests that are looking for a fun weekend in.

Elk Run Lodge

The Elk Run Lodge game room makes it easy for guests to enjoy playing games at all hours of the day. This game room is downstairs, away from the bedrooms, so that kids can play a match of Ping Pong or watch a movie while parents go to bed early. This epic game room has access to ourside seating, a Ping Pong table, Bumper Pool, an HD TV, Kitchenette, and Wet Bar.

Guest Endorsement

"Our family of 10 stayed at Elk Run Lodge for my mom's 80th birthday. We were all thrilled with the house and the set up. The kitchen has a large island and a very large dining room table - room enough for all of us to cook, eat, play games, and have a 1000 piece puzzle laid out. When my parents went to bed in the upstairs master, we headed downstairs to the game room and watched movies, played games, and ping pong. The house was perfect in every way and very well maintained. I'm a snob, and terribly picky about where I stay, and I loved this house and hope to rent it again." ~ Colleen Koningh

Mountain Elegance

Our NEW PROPERTY, Mountain Elegance features a heated game room in the garage. There's Pop-A-Shot, Foosball, Ping Pong, an HD TV, and seating area. Guests can start their day with some sunrise Yoga on the padded floor, or practice their free throws at the Pop-A-Shot arcade game. If you get more than 50 points, you have the new high score.

Evergreen Mountain Lodge

There are hours of fun to be had in the heated garage game room in Evergreen Mountain Lodge. You can play Rock Band on the XBox360 Kinect, shoot some pool, or enjoy some old fashioned arcade games like Space Mission Pinball! But that's not all!

Guest Endorsement

"We were a group of 5 couples and this cabin had enough room for all of us! The girls enjoyed the large living room, big couch, and warm fire. We could barely get the boys out of the heated garage game room! Kitchen was large enough to make group dinners and enjoy them at the long dining table. We will be back!" ~ Haley Kocek

Elk Sedge in Suncadia

This game room is perfect for families that love exploring the outdoors. The room itself features a Ping Pong and Foosball Table, but that's not why our guests love it. This owner has graciously allowed guest to use 4 bikes, tennis rackets, snowshoes, and basketballs. Guests can enjoy a relaxing bike ride around Suncadia Resort, or play tennis in Dawson Park. Or, in the winter, you can strap on the snowshoes and explore one of the many trails in Suncadia.

Guest Endorsement

"We had a fantastic time at the Elk Sedge in Suncadia. This is a wonderful property for families. We have six adults and five kids. Plenty of room for all. The house is well stocked and the game room in the garage was a big hit. As were the bikes in the garage that we used to enjoy the Suncadia property. The house is very well stocked and one of the nicest rentals we have stayed in. We are already planning our trip back next year. Thank you!" ~ Jill McCall

Granite Creek Estate

The Granite Creek Estate garage game room has Air Hockey, Pop-A-Shot, and Ping Pong. But the real gem is the kids entertainment room upstairs. Theres a basket of toys for children to enjoy, a large HD TV with plenty of DVDs, and a collapisble play tunnel. After a long day of playing, there's a twin over full bunk bed for kids to collapse in.

Guest Endorsement

"We had an incredible stay. It was perfect for our mix of kids and adults. Plenty of privacy and space. Lots of toys were provided, which made it feel like Christmas for the kiddos. I can't wait to book this location again!"

Activities Our Recommendations



Yakima River Retreat “This cabin is not a cabin at all but a really spacious beautiful lodge-style home. Deer wandered throughout the weekend and the view of the nearby river completed the fairy tale scenery. Add into that a nice hot jetted tub soak overlooking that beautiful setting, from the warmth of the very luxurious master bathroom, completes the restful stay for us. We would definitely come back to this lodge for summer or winter stays. ”
