    Explore the USA's Own Backyard

    Local Friendships.  More Savings


    Don't let the rising cost of international air travel discourage you from taking a holiday this year. While you may naturally be attracted to the exciting possibilities of exchanging with one of our 13,000+ HomeLinkers in exotic locations around the world, do remember one thing...

    There are almost 3,000 American members to swap with too!

    And sometimes, it turns out that the very best holiday experiences are the ones we can find and enjoy right here, amongst friends, relatives, and fellow Americans.

    Exchanging homes with a fellow American is a great way to explore our own backyard and on a super shoestring budget too! Consider our "Savings" comparison for a typical international holiday - the greatest cost by far, is the airfares. So imagine how ridiculously affordable your holiday can be, just by choosing to swap homes with another HomeLinker right here in America.

    For home exchange first timers, it's also a great way to "dip a toe in the water" with local people perhaps in a nearby capital city or tourist region.

    Don't forget about our friends to the north. There are nearly 1000 HomeLinkers in the beautiful Land of Canada and their accent alone might be enough to give you a taste of the alternate cultural experience you'd expect to find in a non-English speaking country!

    Best of all, the new friendships you will make around the USA are so easy to foster and maintain. Happy reunions and follow up exchanges are naturally just par for the course when you exchange homes with a fellow American ... just ask some of our longstanding members.

    My home "Pavement Ends" is located in central New York State, the location of several of James Fenimore Cooper's novels. It is six miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown plus two other museums and 1/2 mile from the nearest neighbor. It is in a beautiful rural location with rolling hills and 9 mile long Otsego Lake (called "Glimmerglass" in Cooper's novels) nearby for boating, fishing, and swimming in season.

    My property encompasses 120 acres of farmland and wooded hillside, all under a conservation easement -- perfect for hiking and picnics. There is a "meditation hut" at the edge of the property with a small waterfall and stream in back and peaceful view all around. The spa deck is very private and overlooks an old skiing hill.
