That's why, at, you can find great golf and spa vacations to balance out the surprising stress on the greens.

If you want to reduce stress, a hotel is not the place to do. Noisy neighbors become even more intolerable thanks to the thin walls. Hotel staff is usually overwhelmed by complaints from other weary, stressed-out travelers to do anything about it. The space is small, inducing claustrophobia rather than relaxation. Food options are sparse and the atmosphere is cold, indifferent, and unwelcoming.

Book a house with a bedroom for each family member, and a couple extra bathrooms to boot. Sick of relying on room service and continental breakfasts?
