How to Pack for a Summer Getaway

We get a lot of questions from people wondering how to pack for a Getaway. The best part about Getaway is we have almost everything you need waiting for you in your cabin.

You don’t need to worry about linens, shampoo and conditioner, olive oil and salt, or cooking utensils, and we encourage you to bring as little as possible to truly disconnect.

There are some items, though, that are a nice bonus to have around. We’ve put together a packing list of things you just might want for that summer escape.

Hammock

Just because it’s warm out doesn’t mean you can’t still do nothing. Bring along your hammock so you can enjoy the weather and read a good book or just lay back and relax.

Hat and Sun Protection

We all love being outside in the summer, but it’s important to take care of yourself as well. Don’t forget to grab that hat and sunscreen on the way out the door, so you can stay outside for longer. A good general tip is to try to stay out of direct sunlight from 10-4, as that’s when UV rays are the strongest.

Sun protection isn’t limited to sunscreen though – a good pair of sunglasses will go a long way if you’re looking to spend lots of time outdoors.

Bug Spray

For the indoors folks among us, we don’t need to worry so much about this, but if you’re looking to venture out, bug spray is a must. Mosquitos love this time of year, so in order to avoid those pesky bug bites, keep some bug spray handy.

Outdoor Gear for Your Pup

If you’re looking to get away with your favorite canine friend, don’t forget what they need during the summer. Maybe it’s a portable dog bowl to take with you on your hike, or their favorite outdoor toy. This is also the season where pests are particularly active, so making sure your pup is on a flea and tick medication is essential for their long term health.

Your Sense of Adventure

It’s one of our favorite times to get away – going on long walks on sunny warm days, and cooling off in our air-conditioned cabins. There’s no right or wrong way to get away. All you need is a good sense of adventure and excitement for what’s to come.

With these in hand, you’ll have more than enough to enjoy your stay. Don’t be afraid to hide in bed all day though; we do that every time of year.

A Light Layer

Some of the best moments of a Getaway are spent curled up around a campfire beneath the stars. Make sure to pack a light layer to keep warm while roasting s’mores, swapping stories and lessons, and laughing with those who matter most to you.

How to Pack for a Spring Getaway

We get a lot of questions from people wondering how to pack for a Getaway. The best part about Getaway is we have almost everything you need waiting for you in your cabin.

You don’t need to worry about bedding, shower stuff, or cooking utensils and we encourage you to bring as little as possible to truly disconnect.

There are some items, though, that are a nice bonus to have around. We’ve put together a packing list of things you just might want for that warmer weather Getaway.

Spring Cabin

A Rainjacket

“April showers, May flowers” is a nice phrase, but we know rain can strike at really any moment, especially in the spring. A rainy day is the perfect opportunity to cozy up inside with a good book and a cup of coffee, but in case you’re feeling adventurous, you might want some rain protection nearby.

Campfire Supplies

Now that the weather is warmer, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of a fire pit. Don’t forget to bring those extra hot dogs or the ingredients for your favorite campfire chili. If you need some recipe inspiration or some tips for starting your campfire, we’ve got your back.

Light Layers

The sun might be shining during the day, but it still gets a bit chilly at at nighttime, especially near our Outposts. Don’t forget to bring that extra vest or flannel so you can stay outdoors as long as you like.

Bug and Sun Protection

We think spring is the perfect time to head outside, but unfortunately so do the bugs. You might want to throw that bug spray in your bag on your way out the door. While you’re at it, grab the sunscreen too, so you can protect yourself from the bugs and the sun.

A Good Pair of Hiking Boots

Hiking Boots

Now that the snow has started to melt, it’s a great time to check out that hike you’ve been wanting to do. Don’t forget the right shoes though. With the sporadic spring rain, we recommend a pair you don’t mind getting muddy.

With these in hand, you’ll be more than ready to explore. Don’t be afraid to cozy up and do nothing all day though; we love doing that too.
