Luxury RV Rentals

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Luxury Camping or ‘Glamping’ is a fairly recent take on camping – enjoying the great outdoors without giving up the comforts of home.

The most extravagant RV’s are Class A or Class C RV’s. The luxury RV’s we offer can be over 40-feet long with 1-4 slide outs. Depending on the model, they can accommodate up to 8 people. If you are interested in smaller luxury RV Rentals, we have that too!

What is Class A?
luxury-motorhome-exterior1 luxury-motorhome-exterior
Class A is your typical tour bus style RV. These are often built on a sturdier frame than Class C’s, which is why the biggest RV’s are Class A.

What is a Class C?

Class C’s are motorhomes with a bed overhanging the driving cab.

Luxury RV’s may come with..

One-three TV/DVD set-ups, satellite/direct TV, surround sound, a gas fireplace, extensive indoor seating, large fridges, a microwave, a washer and dryer, an interior shower with a glass door and skylight, a fiberglass bathtub, an exterior shower, awnings – and all around just more amenities and space!

mile above sea level step

The Kirkland Museum offers a broad range of pieces demonstrating decorative art in all styles.
The fascinating thing about Denver is how short its history is; legend says there was not a soul living in the Denver metro area before 1958, the year it was founded as a Gold Mining town. This industry provided Denver with the people and resources to grow drastically over the next 2 years, reaching a population of 100,000. Nowadays Denver is the place to be for US skiing in the Rockies, river rafting, hiking, and other fun outdoor activities. The downtown core is one of the friendliest to pedestrians and its skyline is dappled with sky scrapers against scenic mountains.

Trip Itinerary: California Coast

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Driving Highway 1 along the California Coast has been on my bucket list for years. Skiing the top California Mountains has also been on my bucket list for years. So when the opportunity came combining the two for an ultimate Cali road trip, who could give that up.

Check out below my ski/coastal Cali road trip itinerary:

Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth Mountain

The first stop on the list was Mammoth Mountain. I spent a couple days enjoying the slopes of this big bad hill. It was a ton of fun. Although I stayed at the base of the mountain, there was a free shuttle to downtown which boasted unique shopping, dinning, and small town feel.

Mono Lake

Mono Lake

Next was the drive up to Lake Tahoe. Along the way, a stop at Mono Lake is a must. It’s one of the oldest lakes in the western hemisphere and is 70 square miles in size.

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

I drove along the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe to make it to North Lake Tahoe to start.

Northstar California

Northstar California

Purchasing the EPIC ski pass to hit NorthStar, Heavenly and Kirkwood was the best bang for the buck. Starting off at Northstar California was a great intro to Tahoe. It snowed the entire day and provided some great deep turns.

Squaw Valley

Squaw Valley

Being in North Lake Tahoe, skiing Squaw Valley is a must. Squaw hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics and should be on every snow sport enthusiasts bucket list.

Pier 39 San Francisco

Pier 39 San Francisco

San Francisco

San Francisco

After skiing for a few days, it was time to head to the coast for the weekend. I spent a few days wandering around San Francisco. Checking out Pier 39 and the sea lions, doing the night tour of Alcatraz (the night tour is highly recommended as the added dusk feel offers the best creepy feeling as well as fantastic views of San Fran, eating at some of the best restaurants San Francisco has to offer (hello China Town) and dancing the nights away to the wonderful live music, was a great time spent.

Heavenly Mountain

Heavenly Mountain

After being in the city it was time to head back to the mountains – to South Lake Tahoe. Heavenly and Kirkwood Mountain was on the list. Heavenly is uniquely situated right on the California/Nevada border. The views of the lake are breath taking from the top of the mountain. So if you are a gambler, it’s easy walk down the road into Nevada and spend some time in the casino. If you’re like me, I decided to eat at the Fire and Ice Grill & Bar and watch the chefs toss up custom meals.

Kirkwood Mountain

Kirkwood Mountain

After Heavenly, I stayed at the base of Kirkwood Mountain. Which was my favourite mountain of the trip. The terrain was great and varied, providing a little bit for everyone. I was there mid week and had the mountain to myself. The staff was super friendly and the little pub had great food, a toasty fireplace and drink specials that couldn’t be beat.

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz

Kirkwood was the final mountain stop of the trip. After that I was coast bound. Highway 1 was calling my name. I headed for the coast and decided on a stop over in Santa Cruz. I was so happy for the stop over too. The pier was great (and it started a bit of a pier obsession that I now have), the shops and restaurants were quaint and everyone seemed to breathe and love Santa Cruz. I visited the first surfing museum and witnessed some of the best waves to date. It also happened to be the 40th anniversary of Santa Cruz Skateboards, so a stop at their shop was a must.

California Coast: Highway 1

After walking all over Santa Cruz it was time to do the drive. The coastal highway 1 is an absolute must do! The coastal waters were gorgeous. There were also sightings of sea lions, elephant seals and wild Zebras as well! I kept my eye’s peeled for a whale sighting and even stopped for lunches and dinners at restaurants on the coast, but didn’t spot any.

Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park

Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park

One of my favourite stops along the coast was Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. The purple sand was so unique and the waters were amazing. It’s a tough spot to find as the turn off isn’t marked. But it’s well worth the time to scope it out.

Santa Monica

Santa Monica

After a big long drive, next stop was Santa Monica. I continued my love affair with piers and headed out there as my first stop. Being in the bustling city was a nice change. The warm weather and night life was exactly what was needed.

Hollywood

Hollywood

The final stop was Hollywood. Any trip to California isn’t complete without a stop in Beverly Hills, Hollywood Boulevard, or the Hollywood Sign. The picturesque view of the Hollywood Sign towering over the city was the perfect ending to the perfect trip of snow and sun.

California Wine Road Trips

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

We’re incredibly lucky to have one of the top locations in the world for wine tasting right in our own backyard. When people think of the best vineyards, they think of California. And why not? California boasts cozy caverns, scenic vineyards and more then 50 types of grapes. What better way to tour the top California wine regions then in an RV. Your home away from home is ready and waiting.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
When most people think of So-Cal they think of Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Malibu. For the wine lover, winemaking has been taking place in these wine regions since the late 1700s. Grab some lunch and road trip up to the high elevation wineries in Malibu. Elevations range from sea level to 3,111 feet at Sandstone Peak. The newly granted Malibu Coast AVA is mainly in the Santa Monica Mountains and is about 46 miles long and 8 miles wide and includes 198 acres of vines for 52 grape growers. The high elevation in this “region’s climate, soils and unique aspects affect the taste of the wine produced.” Check out this post, by Wine Folly for an easy to understand write up of why that’s important. Why does this matter? It matters because the combination produces the delicious wine we know and love in Malibu.

Malibu Wine Road Trip

While driving along the coast, don’t forget to stop by Mission San Diego de Alcala, as they are home to the oldest grapes in California. About an hour northeast of San Diego, off the beaten path, you can stumble upon Temecula. Best known for their Italian and Rhône varietals and the annual Balloon and Wine Festival. The Cucamonga Valley should also be on your hit list. Famous for preserving the past with historic vineyards and ranches and their old-vine Zinfandel and Portstyle wines.

Hot_Air
HIGHWAY 1 – THE CENTRAL COAST.
If you’re doing a California road trip, how can you not drive highway 1? The coastal ocean views, the winding road, the wine along the way. Starting in LA, a quick two hour drive north make sure to stop downtown Santa Barbara for lunch and visit beautiful State Street and sample some of the regional wines at one of the street’s many tasting rooms. From there head inland. The Paso Robles wine region is unique as the day/night temperature swings create bold red wines that are a must. Paso Robles is about half way between LA and San Fran.

Paso-Robles-VIneyards-e1360177457785

Continue heading north towards Monterey and stop by A Taste of Monterey, the regions official wine visitors center. You can learn all about Monterey Bay’s unique landscape and how it effects the vineyards, sample the regions wine, and maybe spot the whales migrating.

SAN FRANCISCO.
Next stop, San Fran. Home of amazing restaurants, fresh local foods and the urban wine movement. During the day, wine and dine on Fisherman’s Wharf, then head to Jackson Square and sample wines at the various wine bars downtown. Check out this half day tour.

Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco

NAPA VALLEY.
Any road trip that’s centered around wine tasting isn’t complete without stopping in Napa Valley. Just an hour northeast of San Francisco, start the day wandering downtown Napa and enjoy some local wines at the Oxbow Public Market. Head up Highway 29 to fill your sights with what Napa Valley has to offer, stopping at renowned wineries for tastings. Keep an eye out for the landmark sign “Wine is bottled poetry” as quoted by Robert Louis Stevenson after a visit to Napa Valley in the 1880s. Known for its life-change Cabernet, Napa Valley boasts tiered hillsides, wine caverns and illustrious estates, making for stellar scenery every wine lover will swoon over.

Napa Valley Wine Country Road Trip
SONOMA COUNTRY. 
Sonoma Valley, also know as Valley of the Moon, offers a bit more laid back atmosphere in comparison to Napa Valley. However, there are still more than 400 wineries with some of the best being: Chateau St. Jean, Simi, Sebastiani, Rodney Strong, Marcassin, Paul Hobbs, La Crema, and Kistler. The Somona Valley is known for its cool-climate Pinot Noirs. Be sure to taste a variety. While in the valley, Sonoma Plaza lies in the heart and offers a historic view of the country.

Best Fall Road Trips

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Fall is my favorite time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love every season for its own uniqueness, but there’s just something about the fall. The temperature allows for outdoor activities like biking without getting overheated, fire bans are lifted, everyone gets together for dinner parties and the colors of the changing leaves… oh the colors!

So you’ve decided that you want to set out and take a road trip. It’s harvest time, wine tours are at their peak, as is the fall foliage. But no matter where you are, or where you go, the way to cover the most ground—and take in the biggest eyeful of color—is behind the wheel. So the ultimate question is: where to go? Take a look at our top 5 spots across the country that can’t be missed!

Route 112, New Hampshire
The ‘Kanc’ (Kancamagus Highway) is always worth a drive. Taking route 112 west is a special treat. Be sure to keep an eye out for fun off-shoot roads that can provide stunning views and fun side adventures.

Best time to go: mid-September with peak times the first two weeks of October.

Skyline Drive, Virgina
It’s easy to fall in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains. Especially with its 105-mile-long Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. A special mention has to be made for route 211, around it’s 32 mile marker, there are plenty of overlooks to snap photos. And don’t forget to stop at the host of vineyards for some wine tasting.

Best time to go: 2nd to 3rd week in October.

Aspen, Colorado
When searching for the perfect fall foliage drive, how can you go wrong when the world-famous town is named after an extraordinary tree. Aspen leaves turn a rich yellow hue in the fall making a picture perfect contrast with the evergreens and gorgeous mountain peaks.

Best time to go: mid September to first week of October.

10 Tips to Survive Disneyland in an RV

Friday, August 14th, 2015

As you’re sitting around your kitchen table discussing with the family where the next big trip to go, the kids always chant… Disneyland, Disneyland! And why not! There’s so much to see and do. Why not make it an adventure like no other and make it a road trip?

Disneyland
Here are our top 10 tips to surviving Disneyland in an RV:

  1. Where to stay? Are there RV Resorts close by? Sure there are! Check out this link for the top resorts with the best reviews.
  2. Enjoy the view. Don’t forget to enjoy the views during your drive. No matter where you are coming from, California has some amazing sights that shouldn’t be missed. Especially if you’re driving along the coast!
  3. How long are the lines? If you’re wondering how long am I going to wait in this line for, there’s this handy little app called MouseWait that will tell you all you need to know!
  4. But where do I park when I get there?! Check out this link on where to park if you don’t have a shuttle service at your RV resort (some resorts offer shuttle service to and from Disneyland. Be sure to check that out before taking parking.)
  5. When to visit. If you’re wondering when is the least busy time to visit, there is a formula for that! Whenever school is in and during the week. That’s your best chance at missing the huge crowds.
  6. Preplan.  Since you’ve decided to travel all that way to get to Disneyland, make sure to do some pre-planning and buy your tickets online and book your resort before hand. Purchasing tickets at the front gate is the most expensive spot. Check out this site for some great deals.
  7. Food and drinks. There are so many fun and amazing foods you can cook in an RV (stay tuned for our next blog post on all kinds of fun ideas) but can you bring outside food into the park? You sure CAN! As much as you want. Just don’t try to bring in a cooler or anything bigger then 24″x15″x18″. And no alcohol.
  8. Home away from home. One of the best things about bringing an RV is that you can lounge and nap at your leisure. No need to leave the room during mousekeeping. And no need to pack and unpack during your trip!
  9. Where to stay along the drive.  If you are going to a number of National Parks and State Parks then look at getting the Interagency Annual Pass for USD $80 rather than having to pay $20 or $30 per park. This all depends on how long your drive is, obviously.
  10. Enjoy the drive. Don’t forget about all of the other fun stops to make during your journey. Check out these fun roadside attractions and historic sites.
