|Whether nestled in a stand of pines, edging a mountain lake, or basking in the sun by the sea, a vacation home provides welcome retreat from the hectic pace of daily life. In terms of modern conveniences, your vacation home will not necessarily be all that different from your primary residence. It may be smaller in scale and should use that space efficiently, but its construction will probably be very similar and it may offer the same amenities. In many cases, its appearance may be more rustic, blending in with its natural setting. And what a difference that setting can make!|
