Why Renting a Cabin is Better Than Tent Camping

Perhaps we should start with the reasons why a cabin is NOT better than a tent…we can’t think of any. When it comes to the camping adventure, a cabin is the way to go.

Firstly, they are stable structures that will stay upright and dry no matter the weather conditions. You are also able to sleep in a cabin year round no matter the weather whereas tent camping you are subjected to the elements. You also won’t suffer from those first morning rays of sunshine making your tent into a personal oven. Another great reason for a sound structure is the lack of pests bothering you. Every zip of the tent door allows more critters into your bed. Behold the power of electricity! You can store food easily in the fridge, cook food on a stove, and charge your phone when you rent a cabin. Don’t forget, indoor plumbing is always a much better accommodation over porta-potties or a simple bush.

With a cabin, they allow for multiple people to sleep more comfortably for a handful of reasons. One being there are solid, comfortable beds to sleep on as opposed to an air mattress, cot, pad or just the ground in a tent. Cabins also allow for multiple rooms and areas for people to sleep as opposed to everyone sleeping right next to each other. By the end of the night inside a tent, you are practically sleeping on top of one another. Or you are forced into bringing multiple tents to accommodate the size of your group. The cost of camping equipment can get quite costly. Another perk is being able to easily organize all your gear within the cabin, while also being able to pack less gear since a lot of cabin rentals come with standard equipment available for your use. There are so many reasons as to why many people prefer renting a cabin. If you have never experienced the adventure of a cabin rental, we recommend you give it a try!
