Your choice of accommodation can make or break your vacation. After all, if you choose the wrong place to stay, you could encounter noisy neighbors, filthy floors, tiny rooms, and even bed bugs! Although most travelers immediately start searching for hotels, don’t forget about slightly less standard places to stay, like cabins, cottages, and condos. Cabin vs. hotel accommodations: which is best? Although hotels are more common and frequent travelers might enjoy their loyalty programs, cabins boast a number of unbeatable benefits. Scroll down to learn about a few of our favorites . . .
Cabin vs. Hotel
PRIVATE RETREAT. Privacy is essential for true relaxation, and a cabin can provide the privacy you crave. Not only will you be fully separated from other travelers (eliminating the frustration of noisy neighbors that comes with a thin-walled hotel), but you will also have privacy within your family or group. If you choose a multi-bedroom cabin, your children can have their own private space. Or if you’re traveling with another couple, you can each retire to your separate quarters at night. Finally, you can find cabins that are private within the city as well, shielded by trees and tucked away in wooded areas.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME. In a cabin, you won’t be restricted to only a bedroom and a bathroom, like in most standard hotel rooms. Instead, you will have a common area, bedroom(s), bathroom(s), a kitchen, and maybe even a patio or deck. With the great amount of space and homey kitchen essentials like a fridge, an oven, a microwave, silverware, glassware, plates, and bowls, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable meals and cozy evenings in your makeshift home. Plus, the fully-equipped kitchens can also help thrifty families save money on meals.
GREAT FOR GROUPS. When traveling with a group, it can be difficult to find accommodations that keep everyone close together. In a hotel, you might be separated onto several different floors or forced to squeeze into a single room together. If you book a cabin, on the other hand, the group can stay in the same cabin but split into different bedrooms. Or, you could book multiple cabins that are near to one another. This strategy works well for reunions, weddings, and other large groups.
WELCOMING TO PETS AND BABIES. Young parents often avoid traveling, partially because they aren’t sure how they’ll care for their newborn in a hotel. Cabins eliminate many young parents’ fears because they provide a kitchen to prepare family meals and they ensure that neighboring guests won’t wake up to hear a baby screaming and crying through the wall. Additionally, proud pet-owners will find that many cabins are open to small and well-behaved dogs. And because cabins are often surrounded by wooded areas and walking paths, it will be easy to take your dog out for walks and bathroom breaks.
