Cabin Rental Tips
I grew up camping and spending most weekends on outdoor adventures with my family. Spring and fall breaks were often spent at the river with a tent or in a Northern Arizona cabin. Some of my favorite childhood memories include skipping rocks, fishing from a dock and roasting marshmallows in the dark over a campfire. Our daughters don’t yet have these same types of memories and this year I’m intent on committing to a few extended weekends exploring outdoors together. A favorite fall break travel idea that has been on our list for years is renting a cabin at Big Bear Lake in Southern California. We visit Southern California often and would love to show our daughters a different experience in our favorite travel state destination. It’s been over five years since the last time we stayed a weekend in a cabin at Hawley Lake and it’s definitely time to show little sister what camping is all about.
My husband did not grow up with the same outdoor adventure experiences as I did and has only a small handful of childhood camping memories. We both love being outside and have found a happy compromise with cabin rentals.
How to save on your cabin rental
Every year we talk about visiting a cabin with our daughters but don’t seriously look into booking the experience until we have a spontaneous weekend available. The best cabins at the best prices take reservations early and unless you’re in for a true outdoors experience without the comforts of a warm cabin, you should book early too.
Travel with family or friends
Cabins vary in size and price but the expense can be cut down greatly by traveling with family or friends.
Pet friendly cabins
When we travel, our Siberian Husky often stays at a dog boarding facility where she gets to play with her doggie friends all day. We love where we take her but it also comes with a big expense. You can save on your family travel expense by booking a pet friendly cabin so your dog can travel with you.
Read the reviews
We once spent a weekend in a cabin we regretted booking from the minute we arrived. Read the reviews and your family will have a much better experience because you’ll know what to expect.
