*Curb Appeal: Your guest will be picking your cabin from hundreds of others based off of pictures & you want your cabin to really stand out. A good tip to go by is to look for a cabin that has a nice entrance to the front door…like a porch or deck.
*Hot Tub: This is the 2nd thing that the guest look for. If you have the option to buy a new one, always go with a light interior. White is the best, it always looks great & very clean in pictures. The darker the inside, the dirtier the water looks (even if it is clean as can be)
*Rocking Chairs: Guest look to seat outside & enjoy the mountain air, so rockers are a must. Just know ahead to time that with the whether & “Wears & Tear”, rocking chairs usually will have to be replaced every few years. Advise: if you buy chairs that are painted from the factory then that is great…but never paint them yourself because over time & as the guest uses them the paint will come off & mark marks all over the deck floor.
*Outdoor Table & Chairs: If you have room for it this counts as an amenity. This is always a big plus for the guest & provides them with an outside dining experience.
*Grill: If you have a gas grill, you will have the expense of refilling the pro-pain tank & ussually they have to be replace from “wear & tear” every 2-3 years. Having a park grill with a lid will last forever.
*Firepit: This counts as an amenity & is a big attraction for guest. Only put in a firepit & has safety in mind 1st. In the area that the firewood is placed, its always safest to have a “wall” around it, this way if a child gets too close it will protect them from the fire. Stay away from metal ones because they are very hot to the touch. Don’t create a “pit” down in the ground because someone could fall in.
