Cabins help the travel budget Calendar of Events

Cabins help the travel budget
The secret to a great vacation is having a "home base" and our vacation rental cabins provide that to travelers. Among the many other advantages to booking vacation rentals or holiday homes are: 1. More bang for the buck - Hotels have to pay for all of the extras, marketing and amenities. If there are multiple people sharing then the cost per person is a lot less than it would be in a hotel.

2. Kitchen privileges - Vacations can be expensive and one of the major culprits is food. Dining out for every meal can not only be costly, but also boring. With our vacation rental cabins there are kitchens with cookware and appliances . all the comforts of home. Keeping some breakfast items, snacks and other foods on hand can save big bucks while still having the option of traveling to local area restaurants. 3. Convenience of coming and going - Vacation rentals offer travelers the flexibility in schedules as well as take care of the problems with hotel parking and security issues if late night excursions are part of the vacation plan.

How renting a cabin or chalet can save money.
Group trips and family vacations can be pretty pricey. Staying in a traditional vacation hotel with a substantial family can often leave you renting multiple rooms. This can quickly increase your costs on a per night basis and possibly make your vacation never happen. Renting a larger cabin is significantly cheaper. You still have comfortable sleeping accommodations but at a much lower price. The savings in terms of the price to sleep comfortably is not the only benefit on getting a cabin. Cabins also have full kitchens. This allows you to save money on food. By buying and cooking a few of your own meals you save a good chunk of change and eat better than you probably would have at any of the local restaurants. While you might not want to do this for every meal (you are on vacation!) it does help keep costs low and could be nice for children seeking to have one of their favorite foods.
