Cabins, such as Broken Bow cabins, are a wonderful way to enjoy nature while still having the comforts of home. They can provide a warm place to relax after a long day trekking through the woods or swimming in the lake. Cabins are equipped with a wide array of amenities with some being more luxurious and others more rustic. No matter what type of cabin you are staying in, there are a few things you should bring to ensure you have the perfect vacation.
For a majority of it, packing for a cabin is the same as packing for any type of vacation. There are several basic necessities that you will need to bring. Make sure you have clothing that is appropriate for the weather expected during your visit. This will mean you will have to check the weather in the area before packing. Bringing extra clothing is another good idea, especially if the cabin you are staying at doesn’t have laundry facilities. If it does have a washer and dryer, however, you will need to bring laundry soap and dryer sheets. Personal hygiene products, such as soap, toilet paper and feminine products, are a few other items that you should bring along.
For the Kitchen
A lot of cabins are fully-equipped with kitchens, however, you will have to bring your own groceries. And don’t forget the silverware, plates, bowls, cups, utensils, pots and pans. You will also need dish soap and dish rags to clean these items with. If you want to reduce the amount of dishes you do, consider using throwaway plates, cups, bowls and silverware. Matches and newspapers are a good idea as well since you can use them to make a fire. And don’t forget the ingredients to make s’mores!
Bed and Bath
A lot of cabins don’t provide bedding so you may need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and blankets. You will also need to pack towels and washcloths. If you’re vacationing with children, don’t forget to bring any bedtime toys that they commonly sleep with.
Items to help keep you entertained should also be packed. Even if you have a schedule filled with activities, you will more than likely have some down time and need a things to keep you busy. Puzzles, cards, books and games are good options. If the cabin is equipped with a TV and DVD player, you may want to pack some DVDs with you.
