People often ask us what to pack for their Getaways. We usually say ‘not much’ because we believe in the simplicity of just getting away to enjoy the great outdoors or great company.
Our tiny cabins also include all the essentials you’ll need—fresh linens on a queen bed with pillows and blankets, towels and a hot shower with shampoo, conditioner and body wash from Pharmacopia, kitchen cooking supplies and provisions for purchase. For the chefs and foodies, keep in mind that bringing large cooking appliances may over-complicate things and take up precious space. See the full list of what’s in our cabins here.
As for the rest, here’s what we recommend to pack, with a few different options based on how you like to get away.
