There's no denying the fun in summer road trips. However, between the traffic, cost and other headaches associated with summer travel, sometimes staying local is an attractive alternative. And although "staycations" have their upside no matter where you live, at several William Raveis listings, home really is the best place to be.

For homeowners seeking old-world charm in a peaceful setting, 9 Terrace Circle in Armonk offers can't-miss value. The massive 12,000 sq. ft. stone residence was built with entertaining in mind; from the house's top-of-the-line Rutt kitchen to its sprawling patio and backyard, the property is equipped to host gatherings from 10 to 100. Inside, a breathtaking entryway welcomes guests and ushers them into the wood-paneled library, family room, kitchen and dining room. Gear heads, fear not: the house contains a four car garage and offers four more spaces in an attached unit.

Looking to relax as hard as you work? 55 Penwood Road in Bedford Corners allows homeowners to break a sweat and take it easy, all without ever having to leave home. The six bedroom, 11 bathroom house features a state-of-the-art exercise room, a half-court basketball court, an inground pool and five acres of carefully manicured land, perfect for playing sports or just taking a walk. Once they're ready to unwind, residents and guests can relax in the house's theater-quality media room, shoot pool in the game lounge or just sit by the outdoor fire pit and Koi ponds and enjoy the outdoors. Although it's only minutes from Westchester County Airport and a short trip from Manhattan, 55 Penwood Road offers the feeling of being a world apart.

Getting away from it all during the summer is often just what's needed to help reset and refocus. However, being able to do so without losing cell phone service is a major bonus. Thankfully, William Raveis's listing at 290 Barrett Hill Road in Mahopac offers solitude and convenience, at a price that can't be beat. Listed for under $1 million, the rustic contemporary house blurs the line between home and nature. The house's wrap around deck, outdoor kitchen, patio, hot tub and pool provide entertainment from dawn 'til dark, while the home's interior invokes a modern take on the traditional cabin. For those looking to be pampered, the house's detached sauna and spa is the perfect way to melt away stress after a long day's work.
