5 Reasons To Rent A Cabin

As you may know, last week my little family loaded up and went to a cabin for our summer vacation. We enjoyed a lot of time talking and resting in the cabin and then went to Dollywood. Because we had so much fun today I want to share 5 reasons we chose to rent a cabin instead of a hotel. These benefits can be applied to beach house as well.

1. You can eat in. A great way to save money on your vacation is by eating in. Even though my energy sometimes runs out of the room when I have to make dinner eating out every day can get expensive. With a rental cabin/beach house you can stock up on groceries and use your own fridge, microwave, stove, and oven.

2. You can have multiple rooms. If you are a family with small kids you will need multiple rooms so that the kids can take their naps. A good nap equals a happy baby. A happy baby equals a fun vacation.

3. You can do laundry. Nobody wants to have a weeks worth of dirty clothes piling up. Having a washer and drying in your rental allows you to cut down on what you bring. You can do a mid-week wash if you need to.  

4. You have privacy. In a cabin or a fun beach house you have secluded entryways, balconies, hot tubs, etc. I loved this benefit with our cabin. We sat on our balcony and rocked each morning and night.

5. You have the luxuries of home. In a rental you can spread out in a living room, pop open the fridge to find a coke, do laundry, have your own private bathroom, and watch TV from your own bed. Having the comforts of home on vacation is a definite plus.

We loved our time at the cabin! I’m so glad we chose to rent a house instead of getting a hotel.

We were sad to go home, but I think that is a good sign that we had a lot of fun! Or maybe we were simply dreading unloading all of this stuff. Tell me… who really needs that much stuff???

  1. What a beautiful and fun cabin! This is seriously a great review for families going on vacations – I never would have thought about this as an option, but now I might just have to look into a cabin or house next time we go on vacation! These are really important factors for a family. Thanks for sharing! I’m sharing it on Twitter and Facebook 🙂

    • The first year we went we used a personal reference. We asked around to see where people enjoyed visiting and booked our cabin off of recommendation. The next year we researched cabins close to the city we wanted to stay at, and this year we chose our cabin based on location and size.

  2. I love the pictures that you captured of the boys! ahh! So adorable!! I could just squeeze them! I love this idea …you actually make me want to go to a cabin now haha. And haha i love all the stuff in your van! woaaahhhhh! what’s going to happen when you add several more children lol 😛
