Families decide to cut out their summer vacation, because summer is the optimal time to take school-age
children on a holiday, and a great chance for parents to soothe their frazzled nerves. Nixing a vacation may
save money, but it can also result in higher tensions and stress since they did not take a much-needed break
from daily life.

If you want to cut costs while still taking a vacation, you should consider renting a cottage. Many cottages
are available that can house up to fourteen people, so sharing it with family or friends can be a very
effective way to take that vacation on a tight budget, while enjoying your vacation with the people you love.

The primary concern with this arrangement is the decision as to who is responsible for    what, such as grocery
shopping, laundry duties, cooking expectations, cleaning duties and other chores that     are included in
a
cottage vacation. Even with family and friends, problems can arise if every person’s      expectations are not
the If you work out these differences before the vacation, you can avoid turmoil during
same.                                                                                     and after the trip.

Renting a cottage for a vacation is an option that is widely available across the globe. Some of the cottages
are part of larger resorts in popular destinations, but even those usually retain their cosy feel.
In
addition, many private owners rent out their cottages for the summer. Some privately-owned cottages are
managed by a private rental company.

If you choose to rent from a private owner or company, there are some things you should consider before
officially renting the cottage. If something in the cottage needs to be repaired, would it be
your
responsibility to fix it or theirs? If they perform the repairs, how can you contact them and how quickly
could they be expected to make the repairs? What are the terms of the lease? Is the cottage furnished,
including small appliances and linens, or are you expected to bring your own? In addition, find out if there
is a security deposit required upfront. If there is, ask what condition you must leave the cottage in to
get full deposit returned.

Some cottages and pet and children friendly; others are not. If you plan on bringing your pets or children,
make sure that the cottage allows them. If you are booking without seeing the cottage in person, make sure to
ask for the most current photos of the property and a thorough description of the cottage. Ask for a floorplan
if one is available.

Renting a cottage can be done on almost any budget, from the most elaborate to the smallest. How much a rental
will cost varies greatly depending on location, size of the cottage, and time of year. If you can arrange
a
vacation before or after summer, you may be able to save hundreds of dollars by renting in the off season.
This option may not be the best choice for families with school-age children, but it is worth considering.

If you plan on vacationing at a popular destination, a vacation in the off season would have the additional
advantage of smaller crowds. If you’d like to take a break without breaking your budget, consider a cottage
vacation.
