Classic Family Vacation: Autumn Mountain Drives

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Spending a fall vacation in the mountains to see the leaves change colors is one of the great classic family vacations that is simple and so rewarding. Head to the Appalachians for some of the best color shows in the US. Since this mountain range spans almost the entire length of the nation, you’ll have plenty of perfectly crisp mornings and warm afternoons along the mountain range for weeks to come. Take a tour from north to south with these beautiful vacation homes nestled amidst the foliage.

Start your autumn excursion in Lake Wallenpaupack for all the best the season has to offer. From the foliage to the festivals, there is plenty of harvest time family fun. This lake home is the perfect escape into the season.

Great cabin features embrace the changing weather. You’ll have a wood burning stove as well as a gorgeous screened back porch to enjoy the shifting temperatures. The community at the lake will be celebrating the Bavarian Festival as well as wine tastings and a classic car show. Pennsylvania is northern enough to start enjoying the cooler autumn temperatures, but if you’re not ready to let go of hot autumn afternoons, head south toward the Smokey Mountains.

Classic mountain views and perfect weather make Tennessee a postcard perfect vacation destination. This cabin near Pigeon Forge is a perfect spot for a multifamily fall vacation.

Postcard-perfect pictures to send to the grandparents


With that view from the spacious front porch, you’ll be guaranteed gorgeous family vacation photos.  This cabin has space for 10, so invite the cousins to join you. Cool features like a game room with pool table will make vacationing with teenagers a joy. Send them off on a fishing trip off the docks or on a boat. This mountain lake is inviting: the water’s still warm and the fish are biting!

Plenty of space to have a meal together

This cabin is designed to maximize the outdoors. The multiple patio areas include an outdoor dining and grilling area as well as an outdoor fire pit. Plenty of wood is stacked and waiting for you. If toasting marshmallows under the stars is the family fun you’re looking for, this is your vacation home.
