Top Bargain Stays for a Fall Getaway

All you leaf peepers take heed! This week marked the beginning of Autumn in the northern hemisphere, so Leaf Watch 2020 has officially commenced.

Obviously international travel is pretty much off limits for a bit longer as the world continues to battle with the pandemic, so I thought I'd put together a list of amazing BARGAIN STAYS within the United States for my fellow Americans stuck stateside (Canadian version coming soon, so hold tight!).

So, put on that favorite sweater, grab your pumpkin spice latte and settle in as I present my top Bargain Stay picks across the U.S.A. for a cozy Fall getaway for two.

Mid-Century Modern Eagles Nest

Lopez Island, WA

Starting at $75/nt
