Some of the things that will affect the rate at which you can rent a cabin are peak seasons and short notice. Whenever you try to acquire a cabin rental during the winter seasons for example, it will be more expensive than you would of paid during the summer season. And as far as a notice goes, try to get an idea of the type of rental you want at least 6 months before in order for you to avoid excessive short notice fees.

Consult With Multiple Sources
Another thing you can do before you make a decision is to consult multiple sources. By doing this you can get more familiarized about the area that you are planing to take your vacation in and you’ll be able to get an idea of the various deals that are available so that you can choose one that’s way within the limits of your budget.

Analyze The Contract
Just because you found a unit that is going for a great deal, it doesn’t mean that you should secure it as soon as possible. You need to analyze the contract to see if there are any unforeseen costs such as the frequency of your payment schedule and liabilities that you are responsible for such as cleaning and damages.

You also need to take a look at all the items that you will be receiving as a part of the contract so that you can factor that into the total costs you will have to spend while utilizing the unit. For example, what type of furniture is included in the rental as a part of the contract ? What types of furniture are not included in the contract that you may have to purchase on your own ?

Analyze The Terms Of The Deposit.
Another thing you need to factor into your total expenses for your expenditures is the terms surrounding the deposit. Two question you should be asking yourself:

  • How much is the deposit and is it feasible based on the limits of my budget ?
  • What are the terms surrounding receiving the deposit after you have left the Unit ?

For example, in some cases you may be required to thoroughly clean the house by utilizing professional services or all the rental payments have to be paid first before you can receive the deposit back.

Photograph Existing Damages/Flaws
The last thing you would want to hear is that you can’t get your deposit back, based on the fact that you’re being accused of damaging something in the house that was already in that condition before you rented the unit. The first thing you need to do when you arrive at your cabin rentals, is to photograph and/or video tape the entire vicinity. See if you can identify any flaws within the infrastructure or damages to appliances and furniture, so that you don’t get accused of being negligent with the property and thus, be required to pay for something you didn’t do.
