I will admit that I didn’t know what I was getting my family into when I rented a cabin for us to relax in for a week.
I thought the place came with a heating system, but by that they meant the fireplace.
They also had a wood burning stove so that you could also provide additional heating and do your cooking. The problem was, we didn’t have much wood that was already cut, and we were expecting to be able to adjust a thermostat. There was no regular HVAC system at all, and that bothered me. The air quality was not especially nice, and the place had a rather odd smell. We got used to it after awhile and I got a fire going in the fireplace to warm everything up. We had to use candles for our lighting since there was no electricity. I can’t tell you how disappointed everybody was about that. They couldn’t use their devices but we could watch some movies! I actually had a small TV I brought and I had a portable power supply that is rechargeable. It also can jump start your car which is nice. We were able to watch some good movies in front of the fireplace, and that was our primary source of entertainment apart from playing cards and other family games. I was happy when everybody said they actually had a good time, even though it was tough making it through the week. Everybody also admitted that they couldn’t wait to get back home to regular civilization where they could use their devices again.
