It’s not what you think, food is not involved! There’s a great lifestyle network called the Live Well Network and it has a pretty terrific lineup of shows. My favorites are “My Family Recipe Rocks,” “Mirror, Mirror,” “We Owe What?!,” and don’t get me started on the design/talk show “Steven and Chris (LOL).” There’s a new member of the family, “Sweet Retreats” and it’s just for us travelers.

Are you looking for a vacation option that provides a unique travel experience for you and your family with enough space for everyone to be comfortable without breaking the bank? Sounds tempting! “We’re highlighting what is becoming a growing and actually, economical way for people to vacation. It’s a great alternative to hotels. I tend to think of families with kids, since I fall into that group,” states host Rene Syler. A seasoned traveler, you know Rene as the former co-host of the CBS Early Show and the founder of Good Enough Mother.

In our current economy, it’s a way for families to vacation that is growing in popularity. “The fact that more and more people are opening their homes and people are finding it to be a great affordable alternative to a hotel. I really think viewers will be just as invested in the show as the vacationer. Each episode will show a few rental options, all with perks and flaws. It’s fun to see how every choice is made,” laughs Rene.

“Sweet Retreats” takes us on adventures with travelers featuring truly unique vacation rentals. From a renovated historic lighthouse, to the fabulous old brownstone, to luxury teepees (yes, a teepee can be luxurious…LOL), “Sweet Retreats” showcases secret vacation gems across the country. The show will also give viewers valuable tips on how to negotiate the best price on your own vacation rental.

    I love the premise of this show. More family travelers are definitely using this option to save money on vacations… It’s great to see Rene back on regular tv weekly, I watched her everyday on the CBS Early show…

    • Lamar Tyler

      Yes looks good. Looking forward to Sunday’s premiere.

    Am a fan of the show. BUT in every show there’s one place that is way over budget or lacks a major need. Seems like needs aren’t being listened to. And having looked for my own rentals know that there’s just the right fit if only folks looked a bit more. What’s up with that?
