Unique Cabins in the Pacific Northwest to Rent on Airbnb this Winter

Before You Book Your Cabin…(Frequently Asked Questions)

Each cabin rental is different in so many ways. We’ve stayed in some places that have all the modern amenities, and some that are 100 years old! Before booking, it’s important to know your priorities for choosing the right cabin for you. Here are some important questions you need to ask before booking your cabin:

Where is the best place to rent a cabin?
The best place to rent a cabin in the Pacific Northwest is completely up to you and your personal preferences. Part of choosing the right cabin rental is deciding what kind of experience you want to have around the area. If you love hiking, consider renting a cabin in the mountains. If you are a water lover, think about renting a cabin on a lake so you can swim (if it’s still warm enough) and bring a boat!

Can I bring my dog to the cabin?
Bringing pets to a cabin is up to the discretion of the cabin owner. Many listings will add “pet friendly” to their listing, but others do not and it’s totally okay to ask and make sure! We’ve reached out to cabin owners with no-pet policies, and asked if they could make an exception for our group. Some have made an exception for us, but when they do it’s VERY important that you keep that trust!

Will the cabin have WiFi?
More often than not, you’ll find more and more cabins equipped with wifi nowadays. This is because more people are working from home, and it’s nice to book a cabin and get a change of scenery! Cabin listings will often have that featured as an amenity. If you find yourself without wifi, you can bring a personal VPN to connect, or just curl up with a good book!

How will you prepare meals? What food should I pack?
It’s important to know the kitchen amenities before you start planning your cabin meals. Make sure you can keep cold items cold, have basic essentials like pots and pans, and a dishwasher (or dishwashing friends!) for easy cleanup. As far as food is concerned – that’s totally up to you!

What cabin amenities can I expect?
Make sure to fully read the cabin listing before booking your cabin getaway. Often, PNW cabins will be equipped with basic essentials, like bedding, pillows, towels, soap, and water. However, there are so many types of cabins to rent, so it’s important to know what you are reserving before you commit!

Is my cabin safe? What are the safety precautions in place?
In order to be a part of short-term rental programs (like Airbnb), many safety measures have to be met in order to book guests. However, for a little extra safety, make sure to lock doors while inside, and keep valuables hidden when you leave for the day. If you are concerned about wildlife or traffic, bring that up with your host and they can give you more information to help ease any extra worries.

Is there a season to book a cabin if I want to save money?
Depending on where in the world you book your cabin stay, there is usually a busy season and a slow season. Before booking your cabin getaway, spend some time researching the area and the popular tourist times. In order to save a little money, consider coming in the off-season months, or the shoulder season, which is the time directly before and after the busy season.

Is there a quiet area for small kids to go to sleep early?
If you have babies or small children, you may be interested in booking a place with quiet bedrooms. Ideally, ones where they can be sound asleep on one side of the house, and you can visit and enjoy late-night chats with friends on the other end. Spend some time browsing the listing to get a feel for the layout of the house.

These are all important questions that will ultimately determine what cabin essentials you will need to bring. Make sure to FULLY read the listing, including amenities, directions, and reviews. Still have questions? Reach out to the owner!
