You’ve booked a cottage getaway for your next vacation and are already looking forward to enjoying your home away from home. Besides your personal items and clothing, knowing what to pack can be a challenge. Contact the owners or management company to learn what linens and kitchen items are included with the cottage rentals lake george. Here is a guide to help you know what to include in your suitcase and what to leave at home.
One item that’s often forgotten is the charger for your cell phone, so pack that first. Include rain gear just in case all your days aren’t sunny. Add in a tissue box, a roll of paper towels and a few trash bags. If your pet is traveling with you, remember to pack their food, a few toys and a water dish. Pick up grilling supplies and firewood on your drive to the cottage as they could be more expensive at your destination.
If you plan on doing some cooking at the cottage, bring along a couple of your favorite seasonings, a small bottle of cooking oil, salt and pepper, and condiments in individual-sized packets. Include a corkscrew/bottle opener, and the supplies you normally use for your morning cup of coffee or tea. A small cutting board, your favorite kitchen knife, one roll of aluminum foil and lots of zip-closure plastic bags round out your kitchen supplies list.
Pack any seasonal and location-specific items, such as insect repellent, sunscreen, beach towels, snowboards and skis. If the cottage offers bicycle rentals, bring along your own helmet to make sure you have one that fits properly. Throw in those magazines and that novel you’ve been meaning to read for months. Board games, jigsaw puzzles and playing cards are good to have around for rainy days.
Packing these items will make your cottage visit even more enjoyable.
