Election Mayhem Escapes & Deals

After watching Hillary and Trump during the presidential debate on Oct 9, you might be contemplating running for the hills (I don’t blame you)! If so, I’ve got some great getaway ideas and deals below for families or couples who want to tune out in November. Register for an absentee ballot (here) and head to the Poconos, upstate New York or Michigan for a relaxing, frustration-free election week.

Check-in. Tune out!

Looking to escape the election mayhem this year? Grab your kids and head to the Mountaintop Lodge at Lake Naomi in the Poconos of PA! Sip hot chocolate by a roaring fire, play board games, and take a hike (literally). The great outdoors is your backyard. Choose a Cabin Suite where WiFi may be limited… and, if, you happen to pro-actively seek out election results and aren’t too thrilled – hire a sitter and head with your significant other down the Poconos Wine Trail.

  • 2 nights accommodation at the Mountaintop Lodge at Lake Naomi (one room for two people)
  • Complimentary breakfast each morning
  • Complimentary use of board games/parlor games
