Being from smithers, you must realize that fuel costs are still considerably higher end of march than in summer; plus easter is a high demand time, hence our pricing. With the monthly rental (2 month min), you would have to provide your own linens, toilet paper etc, firewood, propane, and drinking water, and garbage takeout. You would pay a half month damage deposit, and half month pet deposit. You would pay an extra pet fee per month. You would have to clean up thoroughly after you leave (mop floors, windows etc) or risk losing your damage deposit. I dont usually rent by month to family with small children anyway.
I m sorry you didnt realize the cabin was off grid. Beach cabins on the grid are available up the road.. at roughly twice the price
