5 Gadgets Every Cabin Should Include

Whether you're a seasoned cabin owner or this is your first time purchasing one, there are some key gadgets that every cabin should include. Here are five gadgets to consider when outfitting your cabin.

1. WiFi

This may be obvious and not a smart device per se, but the number one smart home technology and an absolute necessity is reliable WiFi. Most smart home accessories will need WiFi to connect to the internet. And importantly, readily available WiFi access to the internet is a guest expectation.

2. A Smart TV

A Smart TV will give guests access to all their favorite streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. This can also save money on purchasing an expensive cable tv package, and you can instead offer an affordable streaming service through the smart TV.

3. A Bluetooth Speaker

A Bluetooth speaker is a must for any cabin rental. It's perfect for playing music indoors or outdoors, and your guests can even use it to listen to audiobooks or podcasts while they relax in the hot tub.

4. LED Lights

When it comes to a vacation rental property, one of the most important considerations is lighting. Not only does lighting set the mood for a space, but it can also affect how guests feel about their stay. One type of light that is becoming increasingly popular for vacation rentals is LED lighting. LEDs are more energy-efficient than traditional light bulbs, and they also produce less heat. This can be beneficial for both owners and guests, as it can help to reduce energy costs and keep the cabin cooler in the summer months. In addition, LED lights are available in a variety of colors, which means that they can be used to create a different atmosphere in each room of the cabin. Whether you want a cozy and inviting space or a bright and cheerful one, LED lights can help you achieve the perfect ambiance for your rental property.

5. A Smart Thermostat

For cabin rental owners, a smart thermostat can be a valuable tool for helping to manage energy costs. By monitoring and adjusting the temperature in response to changes in humidity and occupancy, a smart thermostat can help to keep the cabin comfortable while minimizing energy usage. In addition, many smart thermostats allow owners to remotely monitor and adjust the temperature settings, making it easy to respond to changes in the weather or unexpected occupancy.

While some of these gadgets are convenience items, they can help make your guests more comfortable and improve the overall experience. If you're looking for ways to upgrade your rental cabin, consider adding one or more of these top 5 gadgets.
