Consider Your Guests

Posted on 11/21/2016 by Pioneer Vacation Rentals

Thinking of maybe purchasing a Smoky Mountain Cabin? Maybe you would use it as a family cabin in the summer or as a winter cabin to get away from time to time? Whatever you decide, once you choose the cabin you plan to purchase be sure to place it on our rental program to not only generate additional income but to ensure the cabin is professionally maintained and cared for while it is not in use.

Hot Tubs: If you have a rental cabin and it has a hot tub, which I sincerely hope it does, please be sure there is a step to get in and out of the hot tub as well as a cover to help keep unwanted “critters” out as well as debris, plus it holds in the heat too so the tub heats faster.

Window Coverings: Many cabin owners use basic window coverings (blinds, curtains, drapes), in their cabins, which may be perfectly fine. We would suggest an alternative to using “basic” window coverings and ask that you consider buying slightly better quality. While we can certainly appreciate saving money and thinking that “it’s just blinds”, but many guests would be unhappy with bent, broken, or patched up window treatments.

One of the first things most guests will do upon arrival is open the curtains or blinds. They want to enjoy the scenery the view. They want to see the Mountains. That’s one of the reasons why they’re here.

Family heirlooms & sentimental items: We strongly discourage cabin owners from putting these items in their rental cabins due to possible damage or even theft. Although such an event may never happen, the possibility of such an occurrence is very real and may one day happen. Although your cabin in the Smoky Mountains may be a second home for your family, we would recommend keeping these personal & family items at your primary residence and not using them to decorate your cabin in the mountains.

There are many cabins guests can choose to rent so make their experience a memorable one and keep them coming back to your cabin again and again.
