A Vacationer's Guide to Choosing Cabins in the Poconos

By Stephanie Williams

If you love the idea of spending time in a relaxing setting, you may want to look at the Poconos. This mountain range is located in the state of Pennsylvania and it has a lot to offer vacationers of all ages. Here are some tips to consider when looking at cabins in the Poconos in order to find the right one for your next vacation.

Setting your budget ahead of time is important. This can help you narrow down your options. You may worry about not being able to afford a cabin or a room at a resort but if you start planning ahead of time you may be surprised at what you can afford. One thing to consider is the time of year, however, as often prices are higher and options more limited if you are trying to book your stay during the tourist high season.

During summer months, there are often a large number of activities that are available to guests who are staying in the area. Tourists will often flock to the area in larger numbers and will cause rooms and cabins to book up more quickly. There will also often be surcharges or extra fees that are added on to the price of cabins so if you are working with a tighter budget you will need to pay attention to when it is cheaper to travel.

More secluded locations will be of interest to some travelers. You may want to think about how far away you want to be from other vacationers or from different attractions. For some individuals who want to be right in the hustle and bustle of Poconos towns, a more rustic area may not be to their taste. Others may love the idea of seeing as few other people as possible while they are vacationing.

The size of the group you are staying with can affect which options will be suitable for you. Larger groups will do best with options that have more bedrooms as well as larger amounts of living space. Remember that your group will often want to do several different things at the same time and so having room to stretch out and not interfere with one another will help make your vacation more enjoyable.

It may be surprising to find that some locations will also include catering and housekeeping services. If you want amenities like this, looking for words such as "glamping" or "all inclusive" may help you find the kind of vacation experience you have been hoping for.

Some couples choose the Poconos as their honeymoon destination. If you have gotten married and this is your honeymoon it is worthwhile to mention it when you book your cabin. You may be eligible for perks such as free drinks, upgrade accommodations or even things such as chocolates or other romantic items.

A cabin can be an amazing place for you to relax, unwind, and get away from the stress and hassle of your everyday life. Choosing the right cabin can mean the difference between an idyllic retreat and one that is not as enjoyable.
