Ten Reasons to Book a Cabin in 2023

Ten Reasons to Book a Cabin in 2023

Cabins are excellent places to get away from it all and have a relaxing vacation. Here are 10 reasons to book a cabin this year.

[Browse ALL It’s Cabin Time Rentals!]

  1. Cabins contain all the fun of camping, without the hassle of putting up a tent. You will not have to worry about inclement weather or lumpy terrain under your back as you sleep.

2. A cabin will give you the space to relax, whereas hotel rooms only provide a space for sleeping. Play a game of cards at the kitchen table, or read a riveting novel in the bedroom. You will be able to maximize the amount of time you spend at your cabin because you will like being there, and will have a space to do activities you enjoy.

3. Cabins include cooking facilities, so you can make meals you and your family would love. You can skip noisy, busy restaurants, and stock up on your favorite groceries. Cooking as a family can be fun, too.

4. Cabins provide space for you and your family to spread out, so you will not need to be in the same area all the time. You and your family can enjoy as much alone time or togetherness as you desire.

5. Cabins offer peace and quiet, and are generally tucked away from highways and other noisy areas. You won’t have to worry about thin hotel walls, or hearing the sounds of people walking past your room at night.

6. In a cabin, you can enjoy nature without sacrificing the benefits of home. Cabins offer an ideal vacation experience because they can be as comfortable or as rustic as you would like. You won’t have to sacrifice hot showers or home-cooked meals if you do not want to.

7. Cabins offer beautiful picturesque surroundings, since they are not in populated urban areas. You can enjoy time in the woods, by a lake, or near a river.

8. You can bring your furry friend along. Pet-friendly hotels are few and far between. Booking a cabin ensures you can find a property that will welcome your four-legged friend as well.

9. No matter what you are looking for in your next vacation, there is a variety of settings and styles to choose from—looking for an A-frame cabin with a lake view? We’ve got that. Want a vacation home with a pool, hot tub, or fire pit? You can find that here, too.

10. Renting a cabin can be a more affordable option. When you book through Its Cabin Time, you will be booking directly with property owners or local managers. This will save you the fees that other vacation home rental platforms charge.

Enjoying a Fall Vacation in Wisconsin – “Colorama”

If we ask vacationers to tell us their favorite vacation memory, we typically don’t expect to hear about their road trip. Bustled with excitement, the road trip always seems to take longer than anticipated. Traveling with kids? We’re sure you’re used to the classic, “ARE WE THERE YET?!” We don’t even think we’re crazy to suggest that some adults may have slipped this phrase now and then. And finally, as the vacation comes to a close and you’re all packed up you’ll think, “Do we really have to go now?” That’s the drive home that no one is ready for.

It’s time to enjoy the road trip too.

We get it. When compared to the vacation itself, it’s hard to compete. But as fall begins in Wisconsin, we want to change this mentality. Sure, biking the scenic trails of Wisconsin, visiting an apple orchard, enjoying autumn inspired events and other fun activities may trump the “drive time.” Yet, we can say that this colorful drive will be something to enjoy.

Don’t dread the travel time! It’s time to enjoy the colorful drive to your next vacation destination. It’s not too late to book your perfect Wisconsin vacation property. And where can you turn to find that? We’ve got you covered. Search over 700 Wisconsin vacation rentals & book directly with the property owners to save.

For those of you looking for a Wisconsin color report, we recommend using the Department of Tourism’s Fall Color Report tool – it’s pretty neat.

Traveling On a Budget, It Can Be Done

Memorable Vacation Experiences Without a Huge Price Tag

  1. Vacation Properties vs. Hotels
    Opt for vacation properties, not overpriced hotels. For longer trips, vacationers can expect to pay less when renting cabins, cottages, lodges, and homes. Plus these properties offer amenities that hotels can’t offer: full kitchens, washer/dryer, ample space, and fantastic locations.
  2. Budget for your vacation
    Once you decide that you want to take a vacation, financially plan for it. Take a small amount out of each paycheck, then plan how you wish to allocate your savings. The goal is to not be surprised — plan ahead and research some pricing prior to your vacation.
  3. Avoid traveling during the peak-season
    Many people look to vacation during the peak travel weeks, for Wisconsin that can be in both the summer and winter. But vacationer interest means more competitive pricing. Avoid that and book your vacation during the shoulder season.
  4. You don’t have to a lot pay to have a great vacation experience
    Stop having the mindset that every great activity costs a lot of money — that’s a hoax. Instead, look for properties that are near affordable attractions that interest you.

    • Love to bike? Many of the vacation properties are near popular bike paths.
    • End your evening around a campfire with your friends and family. Share stories around the crackling fire or make dinner over the flame. This Wisconsin tradition is so popular that many properties include a firepit with the rental, you’ll just need to supply the firewood and snacks!
    • If you enjoy shopping at unique shops and checking out local restaurants, search for vacation properties that offer that small-town-charm. You can spend an entire afternoon exploring the area.
    • How could we forget about Wisconsin’s lakefront properties. Step right outside your door for an entire day of fun.
  5. Take advantage of the property’s kitchen and/or grill
    We’re aren’t saying that you shouldn’t eat out on vacation — heck we encourage some indulgence. Instead, do both. Take a trip to the local grocery store; then pack a picnic for an afternoon or spend an evening grilling out. Going out to eat is never your only option with a vacation cabin, cottage, lodge, or home.

Everyone deserves a vacation here and there! Use RentWisconsinCabins.com to start your search — travel on!

Vacationing in Large Groups

Make sure the smiles are for real!

This summer my family is having a reunion at the same Northern-Wisconsin resort my parents owned in the 70’s and 80’s. Hats-off to my mom who is organizing the trip for 16 to 18 people. Heck, organizing a weekend getaway for my family 4 (5 with the dog) is nearly impossible.

Do you have what it takes to organize a large group?

Leadership
Don’t go into the leadership role halfway; reluctant leadership is worse than none at all. Remember, the best leaders actively delegate.

People
Avoid looking back on your trip and saying, “we should have done some group psychological testing before the trip.” I know, it’s not practical to ask my two sisters, (I mean) everyone you’re considering traveling with to submit to testing (no matter how tempting the idea is). But, if your group came together by happenstance; the Leader should ask questions. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers; their greatest value is self-awareness.

General Attitudes
The passive/aggressive is the achilles heel of any travel group. They will not state their needs up front, but they will openly complain during and after the fact if their needs are not met. Avoid them at all costs! Get answers…How much time do you want/expect to spend with the group? How much alone? What travel pace do you prefer?

Money
Differing attitudes about money is one of the key factors leading to divorce. If $ can split up people who plan to spend their lives together, imagine what it can do to those who’ve only committed to 7 days of togetherness. Ask about equally handling big expenses (example, damages to rental property) which we know would never really happen.

Do everything you can to enjoy your vacation and, if you have accepted the role of Leader, part of your job is to help your entire group SMILE.
