Hey, y’all. I’ve been so busy lately that the only cabin I escape to is my blog cabin. But renting a cabin up in the hills or down by the sea sure sounds appealing! I dream of retreating to a cabin vacation rental for an idyllic week of rest, relaxation, and reconnection with nature. And then I think I just might run screaming through the woods out of sheer boredom!
Luckily, there are many things to do while staying at a cabin vacation rental that will occupy your time while still giving you that rest and relaxation you crave. When you combine tranquil surroundings with a plethora of activities, cabin vacations can be a delightful experience.
Savoring Coffee on the Deck
Being a morning person pays off in a cabin rental. The early hours of the day are perfect for enjoying a quiet cup of coffee on the deck (and any vacation rental worth its cost should have a deck). Soak in the quiet, and then notice the gentle sounds of nature around you. Of course, if one of those sounds is a bear getting uncomfortably close to the garbage cans, you might want to retreat inside and watch through a (hopefully) thick window!
Playing Board and Card Games
I don’t know about y’all, but I have a bit of a competitive streak. A cabin vacation offers the perfect opportunity to indulge it by cheerfully annihilating my companions at Monopoly, Sorry, or Texas Hold ‘Em. If you want to get fancy, pull out a chessboard. Be sure to be a gracious winner with a minimum of gloating. Just kidding. Gloat away!
Exploring Local Attractions
Every cabin location has its unique attractions. It could be a picturesque hiking trail, a sparkling lake ideal for fishing, or a charming local market. Take time to explore these local attractions. And don’t forget local seasonal festivals. For example, if you’re going to North Georgia, pick up a local newspaper (they might still exist!) and see what local Georgian music venues are offering during your stay. Visit a microbrewery, local distillery, historic site, or museum. You’ll get to know the area you’re visiting better and appreciate it more.
Enjoying a Campfire and S’mores
No cabin vacation is complete without a campfire under the starlit sky. Gather around the fire, roast marshmallows, and create your own delicious s’mores. The warmth of the fire, the sweet taste of the s’mores, and the enchanting environment make for a magical experience. But listen, y’all, be respectful of local fire regulations and red flag warnings. Don’t be the jerk who burns down the cabin and the forest around it!
Finding things to do while staying at a cabin vacation rental provides a break from routine and offers numerous ways to relax and have fun. Whether you choose to enjoy nature’s splendor, engage in games, explore local attractions, or relish a campfire, these activities ensure a memorable and enjoyable cabin vacation.
