While camping is not exactly an every-day occurrence, tents can and do get blown over or drenched in extreme weather. Wind and rain both have the potential to ruin the tent camping experience. A cabin, on the other hand, has a foundation, solid walls, a roof, and isn’t going anywhere. The truth is that you can go camping without necessarily sacrificing your comfort.
