In terms of being a poor but spoiled 30 year old, I kind of lucked-out for vacation homes. My mom inherited a townhome, which she beautifully renovated, on Hilton Head Island, SC, and Matt's mom lives in an amazing home / old mill up in the North Carolina mountains (coincidentally, which she also renovated beautifully). Best of both worlds, amiright?
This weekend we headed up to higher altitude and traded in cell phone service for fresh air. She's got ducks, chickens, a dog, and 25 acres of nature (goulet...). We're back to reality now, but brought some relaxation and inspiration home with us. If you need a getaway of your own, Matt's folks bought this cottage next door and have flipped it into an awesome little rental - check them out sometime.
