Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Rent a Cabin for the WeekendCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Rent a Cabin for the Weekend

By Samantha Mucha

Take advantage of the weekend and escape the chaos of holiday shopping by renting a nice, quiet, cozy, cabin in the middle of the woods.  There’s nothing more romantic than cozying up with your sweetheart as you sit alone by the fire in the wilderness?

Put the city noise and stress of the up-coming holidays behind you and escape.  A cabin gives you the chance to live simply for a weekend and who better to enjoy the relaxation with than your lover.

If you do your research, you may be able to find a good deal.  Remember more than just retail stores go on sale during the holidays.  Better yet, ask your friends for advice and see if they know anyone who has a cabin that they won’t be using for the weekend.

If it’s too costly for this time of year, invite another couple to join in the festivities for an added dose of fun.  Although it may not be as romantic as you originally planned it’s often more entertaining to share the experience with close friends, especially when you are alone in the woods with nobody else around. It will also help cut down on costs.

If you’e with another couple, you can play games together or have a spooky story night by the fire while you’re roasting marshmallows.  Go back to simpler times and play cards, and do other things you did as a child, this will allow your significant other to reminisce about the childhood that they may not have been around to share with you.

Have fun doing next to nothing and be sure to keep your mind away from the stress of going back home.  Enjoy the company of your partner and the silence of the woods.

Have you ever rented a cabin or went camping?  What did you think about the experience?
