Taking a vacation is important. Whether you like nature weekend getaways or romantic cabin rentals to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, taking time to get away is always a good thing. Studies have shown that vacations reduce stress, are heart healthy, and improve your mental health. It has also been found that a vacation can improve personal relationships.
Somewhere around 53% of the employed adults in the U.S. feel refreshed after coming back from a vacation, so it’s crucial to hit that reset button. Statistically, many Americans don’t even take all of their vacation time. One study found, each additional ten hours of vacation resulted in an eight percent higher performance rating. So what are you waiting for?
It’s important for your mental health to take a break. You don’t necessarily have to rent one of the many luxury cabins that are out there, but it’s definitely not a bad idea. In fact, cabin getaways can top a hotel vacation in many ways, and here’s why:
Hotel rooms can get confining after a few days, especially when you’re used to living in a larger home. It can feel like you’re living in a shoe box and the environment is often stark and sterile. Cabins are often decorated to be homey or rustic, giving it a warmer atmosphere. A cabin will most likely have a separate bedroom area, to enjoy as a quiet place to read and relax, or sleep in if you want to because there is no one running or walking up and down the hall outside your door like in a hotel. With fewer distractions couples often experience a romantic re connection, during a private cabin getaway.
A cabin rental will often have a similar cost to a hotel room, in a lot of cases, they’re more affordable because they’re booked at a weekly rate. Plus, you can rent a larger cabin with friends or family, and thus can split the costs to have an even more affordable stay.
You can also cook in the cabins kitchen, unlike a hotel that requires you to get room service, order take out, or go out to a restaurant. Cooking inside the cabin can save you money on food and is therefore a major benefit. The costs of eating out for every meal adds up quickly.
They’re called “nature weekend getaways” for a reason, after all. Cabins are located outside of the city, often in forests and near lakes. The cabin might even have waterfront access, allowing you to boat, fish, or swim right there.
You can enjoy a campfire, cook on the grill, and you can actually see the stars at night if you far enough away from the city lights. It’s all perfectly romantic, natural and serene, compared to staying at a hotel in a big city or large suburb. Cabins are often set in a private location, off the beaten path, giving you the peace and quiet not found elsewhere.
Those are just some of the benefits to escaping the city and the hotels and choosing to have a getaway at a private cabin instead. You could save a lot of money, really enjoy your vacation, along with all the other benefits of your home away from home for a couple of days or even a few weeks.
