3 Features To Look For In A Hunting Cottage For Rent For Your Outdoor Excursion

Recreation & Sports Blog

Hunting is a favorite pastime hobby for many outdoor enthusiasts, but not every location has a lot of hunting opportunities available. If you are looking at traveling away from home for a hunting adventure, renting a small cabin or cottage is a good way to feel comfortable during your trip. There are numerous hunting cottages sprinkled across the nation near to some prime hunting grounds, but not all of them have everything you need. Here is a look at some of the features to look for in a hunting cottage for rent for your outdoor excursion:

Make sure the place has a washer and dryer. 

After you've been hiking through the woods all day, possibly carrying your game, your clothes will be a mess for sure, and you will be quite ready to change when you make it back to the cottage. Stuffing them in your luggage until you get back home is not the best solution. Therefore, make sure the hunting cottage you rent has on-site laundry equipment where you can wash your hunting clothing. 

Look for a cottage that is close enough to your hunting grounds. 

The best way to make the most of a hunting trip is to spend as much time as possible in the wilderness. If most of your time is spent traveling back and forth from your hunting cottage because it is so far away from where you plan to hunt, you will not be making the most of your getaway time. Plus, some hunting will require you to leave well before daylight to be in the woods when the sun comes up to have the best chance of spotting the animals you are after. If your hunting cottage is too far away, this can be pretty hard to accomplish. 

Ensure the cottage has the security you need while you are there. 

Hunting trips can mean you bring with you all kinds of expensive equipment. From the SUV you haul in to travel deep into the woods to the firearms you need for hunting, you could easily have several thousand dollars worth of equipment with you on your trip. Because of this, it is a good idea to pick hunting cottages that are safe and secure. Some of the private cottages have a small garage where you can park your vehicle and ATV equipment, some do have on-site surveillance cameras, and some also have security alarms even if they are in a wooded area.
