Visit the outdoors

Marco and Maude’s Home in Quebec, Canada


“We spent a pleasant Easter weekend in Marco and Maude's house. It is a cozy house, located in a very quiet location with a wonderful view of Lake StJean. Our child enjoyed swinging in front of the lake, picking up the eggs in the morning in the chicken coop and especially visiting the St Felicien Zoo! Marco and Maude were also very available and friendly during the weekend to ask them for advice.” - Fabian and Amelie

Travel with HomeExchange

Jennifer’s Lake House in McCall, Idaho


“Jennifer's McCall house is the perfect spot for enjoying everything about McCall. We were there in summer and swimming, beaches, trails, and biking routes are all close at hand. Would be equally convenient in winter. Close to town, but quiet and away from bustle. House is super comfortable and open- with a great kitchen and living area. Really smooth and memorable exchange!” - Brendan and Susan

Christina B. Sharman’s Home in Big Bear Lake, California


“Awesome home in the tall pines of Big Bear Lake. The home was perfectly kept and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a great treat after hiking the mountains all day every day. The town was nice too but honestly just loved cooking on the grill staying in at night, watching Netflix, soaking in the hot tub and falling asleep in the cozy big king size bed.” - Rodney

Elizabeth’s Home in Fraser, Colorado


“If you’re looking for the "Winter Wonderland" and envision the perfect mountain cabin with top of the line décor and furniture, this is it! The house is located in the cutest village of cabins, very picturesque. You go outside with a cup of coffee, walk around, inhale the crisp cold air and feel complete happiness... My elderly mom and my toddler had fun walking the trails, sliding down the hill at the property in the snow.” - Tatiana

Stay in a cabin

Gale’s Home in Lake Placid, New York
