About Me
Business and Pleasure

On occasions, my husband takes overnight business trips. To prevent loneliness, he often invites me to go along with him. Whenever I discover what city we will be visiting, I immediately start researching it. For instance, I map out landmarks we’ve never seen, restaurants with good reviews, entertainment options, and hotels that look appealing. By the time we get in the car, board the plane, or get on the train, every minute of our trip is already planned out. If your spouse travels frequently for work, consider mixing business with pleasure from time to time. On this blog, you will discover how to make the most of an upcoming business trip.

4 Must-Haves When Renting a Cabin for Your Next Ski Trip

Delores Tucker

Taking a ski trip is not only a great way to bond with family and friends, but it also provides some much needed exercise during the winter season. When browsing cabins for rent, there are a few key things you'll want to watch for. These must-haves will contribute to your overall comfort, as well as make the vacation even more memorable.

A Working Fireplace

Fireplaces provide a romantic ambiance for couples who may be taking an anniversary trip. They also quickly warm you up after a day on the ski slopes. Family can gather around the fire with a hot cup of cocoa or a mug of chamomile tea and relax while talking about the events of the day. While a traditional fireplace is ideal, some cabins are equipped with a gas fireplace. It is up to you how authentic you want your experience to be, but both are sure to offer climate you're looking for. 

A Scenic View

Vacation cabin rentals will disappoint if they don't come with a scenic view. Look for a cabin that sits on a lake, or one that offers an unobstructed view of the mountains. Remember that this space is your escape from the busy life you normally lead, so you want it to feel relaxing. A surrounding majestic nature scene will help you do just that. Of course, you'll also want to make sure the cabin isn't too far away from the ski slopes. 

A Kitchen

After hours of skiing and snowboarding, you may want to skip finding a restaurant for your evening meal. Cabins for rent that contain either a kitchenette or a full kitchen allow you to create your own meals. This is also a must-have feature for anyone traveling on a budget. You can bring your favorite foods, and in some cases, the agency providing the rental will even do the shopping for you so that the kitchen is stocked upon your arrival. 

A Hot Tub

When it comes to additional amenities, look for a cabin that features either an indoor or outdoor hot tub. What better way to soothe sore muscles after skiing than with a soak in a bubbling hot tub. Needless to say, the hot tub will also warm you right up after spending time in the snow. Don't forget to bring a bottle of wine or champagne to enjoy while you de-stress and chat with your traveling companions.
