The Ultimate Cabin Rental Inventory Checklist
You’re ready for guests--and the income they bring. You want guests to have a memorably relaxing experience, so stock everything they’ll need for a hassle-free stay. This checklist helps you prepare for guests and also gives you an inventory so you know if anything is used up, broken or missing later.
This inventory checklist includes essentials, like safety basics and appliances, and extras like a DVD collection or toiletries. Talk to the cabin management experts at Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals to find out more about features to keep guests coming back again and again!
Rental regulations will require certain safety features, but it’s helpful to include them on your personal inventory too. Talk to your cabin management team about local requirements.
