Whether you’ve stayed in a cabin before or you’re thinking of making your first trip, planning ahead is the best way to ensure everyone has an incredible time. There’s so much to think about before you can book your trip, especially if you’re planning a big family vacation with lots of different people from across the whole family coming to stay with you.
With that in mind, here are 5 things to consider when renting a large cabin:
When Do You Want To Go?
Planning a time that is great for everyone is probably going to be one of the most difficult aspects of renting a large cabin. You’ll have to speak to everyone involved to find out when they’re able to get time off work and pick a time-frame that suits the majority.
A great way to do this is to build an online calendar where everyone can sign up and mark the date they’re not free as it’s so much easier to keep track of than sending lots of messages back and forth.
How Long Do You Want To Go For?
Once you’ve decided your dates it’s time to think about how long you want to go for. Not everyone will be able to get the same amount of time off work so it’s best to pick a time frame that suits most people.
If you’re struggling, why not consider renting a large cabin for a set period of time, allowing your family members to come and go on the dates they’re available. If you do this, try to get at least a couple of days where everyone is together at the same time.
Where Do You Want To Go?
Now that you know how long you’re going for and what dates, it’s time to find the perfect location. There are lots of different options across the country, but picking somewhere that’s easily accessible for the whole family would be the best option. For one of my favorite options, check out these stunning Red River Gorge Cabins.
How Many People Will Be Going?
Another thing to consider before you rent out a large cabin is the number of people that will be going. You’ll need to work out the number of rooms you will need based on who can share with who, enabling you to narrow down your search to only properties that are big enough.
What Activities Do You Want To Do?
Once you have absolutely everything else sorted you can start to think about what kind of activities you want to do while you’re staying at the cabin.
While in some cases this may affect the location you stay in, often you’ll find similar activities in surrounding areas of most cabins. Whether you want to go on long walks, hike up gorgeous mountains or spend time cozied up watching movies with the family – a cabin vacation will give you the opportunity to do everything you wish.
