Perks of a Staying at an Abode Luxury Rental vs. Hotel
Vacation is so much more than just a room with a view. Have you ever dreamed of staying in a ski-in/ski-out chalet with access to powder runs right out your door? Or fantasized about bringing the whole family together under one roof, laughing and telling stories curled up around a fire? Vacation Home Rentals unlock access to a world of one-of-a-kind opportunities, on your own terms, for a truly unique getaway with all the comforts of home.
Hotels used to be one of the only options for guests searching for accommodations that fit all their needs with beautiful views and specialized amenities. Now with the rise of vacation rentals, guests have a plethora of opportunities to seek out spectacular properties that give off that staycation feel.
Before the pandemic hit, staying in a vacation rental over a hotel already had many perks. But travelers wants and needs have evolved and now more than ever, families and friends are choosing vacation rentals that offer safe places to congregate together, while having access to properties with wide-open spaces, and amenities hotels might not be able to offer that make it feel more like home so you can stay for a weekend or weeks, at a home away from home that your family can rely on for their safety and comfort.
Staying in a vacation rental like one of our Abode properties is a superior place to stay for any group, from small families looking for a bit more privacy in their vacation lodging, all the way up to extended families wanting to have a great time making memories on vacation together. Here at Abode Luxury Rentals, we specialize in creating memorable experiences through our unparalleled service and carefully curated portfolio, giving guests everything they need to live their own story and create moments to cherish for a lifetime.
When you’re ready to get away, consider some of these perks of staying in an Abode Luxury Rental over a hotel, and browse our portfolio to start planning your trip and to find the perfect Abode for your group!

1. Wide Open Spaces
Abode Luxury Vacation Rentals give you an abundance of space to accommodate large groups of people and help you spread out so you’re not clustered in the same room at the same time. No longer do you have to share a shoebox of a room with little more than a mini-fridge and an ice bucket. Drop your belongings in one of the bedrooms, enjoy a nap in a living room, or wander around the property without running into another soul outside of your own group. At Abode you have space to lounge, spread out, and feel far away from crowds.
Many of our Abode properties have access to open spaces, be it a patio with outdoor seating, a backyard with a hot tub, a lawn with plenty of space for games, or acres of land that include a pond for some stand up paddleboarding. You don’t need to leave your property for the length of your stay if you don’t want to and still have access to outdoor spaces and all the fresh air you could ever want. From backyard ponds for fishing, hiking, biking & ski trails right out your door, to outdoor spaces for lounging & entertaining and the potential of wildlife viewing from your private deck, the opportunities for outdoor adventures are endless, right in your backyard!
Why stay in another high rise where you’re confined to one space when you can escape the hustle and bustle and have the room to literally unwind.
2. Your Vacation, on Your Time
Vacation time is fleeting, and we believe in making the most of every minute! When you stay in a hotel, you have no choice but to conform to its schedule for meals, housekeeping, fitness facilities, etc. Not so in a vacation home. You can get out of bed when you like, cook your own meals – or have a nightcap, soak in the hot tub or work up a sweat with private gyms or private in-home fitness instruction from a personal trainer like Stoke Coach Rachel Elberts, who creates custom fitness experiences, encouraging clients to spark joy by moving their bodies out in nature to help them feel stronger and more confident.
3. All the Comforts of Home and Then Some
Vacation homes are just that: Homes. All of Abode’s properties are individually owned and include everything you’d expect to find in your own home, plus some extra amenities, because not only do our homeowners share the same commitment to your guest experience as we do, but this is also their own home! Full-sized appliances, dishes, books, games, private game rooms, theaters, laundry facilities – these kinds of amenities can make your stay so much more comfortable – especially if you’re traveling with the family or for an extended period of time. After a few days of hiking or skiing during your stay, freshening up those athletic layers is a must. With a vacation rental, you won’t have to bring as much stuff or worry about traveling back home with a suitcase full of dirty laundry. You will be able to wash your clothes with ease.
4. Flexibility for your Evolving Priorities
A vacation rental is your home away from home and can be flexible to meet your new priorities. During this time, you might have the opportunity to stay longer in our mountain towns. Refresh your work from home background, with serene office setups and business amenities, as all our homes have free wifi and private networks with increased connectivity and security for your work from home needs. Take a road trip with all the gear you might need as our properties often have a garage/reserved parking for roadtrippers, and there is plenty of space for skis, golf bags, bikes, and other adventure gear. If you are looking to get away for longer periods of time, bringing your own gear and having a place to store it is a huge benefit vs. renting equipment.
And, if you’re looking to bring along furry four-legged friends we do have some pet-friendly options! Inquire for available properties.
5. Accommodations for Everyone
Most hotels just aren’t geared for families or groups of friends traveling together. Between everyone’s own agenda, the expense of eating out, and having to book two (or more) rooms to accommodate all guests, vacations can get a bit confusing, expensive, and not quite relaxing. Fortunately, it’s easy to find a vacation home with Abode that can satisfy the needs of just about any sized group. In addition to the essentials (plenty of beds and bathrooms), you can create a cheerful vibe by making sure everyone’s needs are met. We have a carefully curated portfolio of homes and a dedicated local sales team committed to finding the perfect property to fit you and your family’s unique needs. Being locals in Park City and Jackson, the Abode Team can truly customize your experience.
For groups who want to stay together, vacation rental homes are an affordable alternative to hotels. For how much more space you’re getting all to yourself, factoring the cost of eating and drinking in your fully-equipped kitchen, sharing a home with multiple families or friends feels more like a deal. No need to pay for transportation to an overpriced restaurant when you can bring your own groceries (or utilize a local grocery delivery service to stock your fridge). Abode guests find that you can’t put a price on privacy and having your own space.
7. Full Kitchen
When you rent a home, you can create big family meals and enjoy time together without having to get everyone out the door. All Abode kitchens are fully equipped, many of which are a professional (and home) chef’s dream! Dinner reservations can sometimes be elusive during the busier months and having a full kitchen gives guests an opportunity to spend more quality time together and to save money preparing fresh meals at home, giving you more money to spend on other things during your trip. And sometimes you come on vacation so that you can take a break from playing chef for the whole family – Sit back, relax and let our local grocery delivery service work their magic or have a private chef whip up a feast for you, delivering some local flavor in a more intimate environment.
For guests who like having their own space, hotel rooms lack privacy. When you are staying at one of our Abodes you will have a full run of the place, and won’t need to deal with the crowds. Fewer interactions with people outside your group – no passing other guests in the hallways or elevators, no need to worry about hotel rooms being spaced out, or shared business centers when you need to work remotely
For your safety, we have contactless check-in, and most properties have a digital lock with a unique code so there’s no need for a physical key. Plus we have our very own app for guests where all of the information you’ll need for your stay is housed!
9. Customized Local Experience
While staying at one of our rental properties you will live more like a local and less like a tourist. Upon arrival, you will get a local taste with a “Welcome Basket” waiting for you with local snacks, beverages, and more to start your adventure off right. Our properties are intermingled throughout our towns and amongst the most highly sought after neighborhoods so you can stay even closer to where you play. Get an insider view of what it’s like to live in Park City or Jackson, and feel fully immersed in our community. From the time you book until after you leave, you’ll have one of our dedicated, longtime local team members available to personalize your experience. Recommendations for socially distant activities, where to dine safely, add-ons available for your WFH needs, babysitter recommendations, and family activities to help you juggle working from home and childcare, private chef services, and endless one of a kind services with an endless amount of unique experiences!
10. A Safe Haven You Can Trust
All of our homes meet & exceed the standards of cleanliness guidelines as dictated by WHO, CDC, local health officials, and industry experts like VRBO & Airbnb. We take your safety seriously and include pre-arrival & post-departure housekeeping in your reservation, and we’ve partnered with local companies like the Virus Assassins to offer additional sanitation add-ons if you so desire. Our linens are also laundered at a commercial facility, giving you peace of mind whenever you lay your head down to rest. Learn more about our commitment to safety in Park City and Jackson Hole.
