12 Parsecs– Champions Gate, Florida
If your kids are huge fans of the Star Wars franchise (let’s be serious, this booking is for you too), then this themed rental home will create long lasting memories. With NINE bedrooms and 17 beds, this vacation home is great for a vacation with extended family, multiple families, etc.
Who wants to go to bed in Cloud City? You can sleep how Yoda sleeps on Dagobah! Good thing they have warm blankets for falling asleep on Hoth. The kids will probably be fighting to see who gets to go to bed in the Millenium Falcon. Hopefully you won’t have Ewoks wake you up if you decide to sleep on Endor! The rest of the bedrooms are themed just as awesome.
12 Parsecs also has its own private pool. Guests of this home also have access to all of the other amenities of the Champions Gate neighborhood. This includes two golf courses, water park, splash pad, game room, bar, sand volleyball, and more.

The Hobbit House of Russellville– Russellville, Arkansas

Despite feeling secluded and in The Shire, you are only minutes from town with a movie theater, bowling alley, and other human civilization.
The Great Escape 2.0– Lake County, Florida
I truly don’t even know where to start with this home! Well, I guess we should start with its size. It is MASSIVE. The Great Escape 2.0 clocks in at 6000 sq/ft, has 15 bedrooms, 39 beds, and will sleep up to 54! This would be great for a family reunion or take the entire little league team after a great season. The possibilities are endless.
Every bedroom in this home is designed with gaming in mind. Pac Man, Operation, Clue, Risk, Twister, Legos, Laser Room and many more. There is one game that is completely XBox themed. There is one room filled with old school carnival games.
Do you think the fun stops when you go outside? Oh no…no it doesn’t. The pool is designed to look like a giant pool table. There is a human whack-a-mole. And you know those giant bubbles you climb into? Ya, they have that, but only on a giant bowling lane where you become the bowling ball! Skee Ball? Ya, they have that too. In fact, I haven’t even scratched the surface. You truly just need to see it to believe it.

Strand Island– St Louis County, Minnesota
The stresses of life and work (and people) are one of the reasons people take vacations. But many vacations simply put you around more people. What if we told you that you can take a vacation that is not at all people-y?

Cliff Dweller– Campton, Kentucky
Alright, let’s be honest here…who could do it? Could any of you be able to stay in a home that is suspended from a cliffside ridgeline? As soon as you get to the parking area, you will immediately be in awe! There is 177 steps on the floating staircase to get to the kitchen. 45 more steps to get to the bedroom. Then only 11 more to get to the rooftop deck. I can’t even imagine how amazing the view is from up there!
They recommend packing your stuff in backpacks instead of suitcases. Any food you choose to bring should be in bags instead of coolers. There is a fridge and freezer in the kitchen. That’s a LOT of stairs to be dragging suitcases and coolers!
This is undoubtedly one of the most unique lodging opportunities anywhere. I would have a hard time getting up there, but I am pretty sure once we got up, we wouldn’t ever want to come back down (because of how pretty it is, not because we would be scared. OK, maybe because we would be scared. But it is still super cool!)

The majority of the pirate ship is outdoor living area. There are NO indoor living or dining areas.
