Is there a looming project you and your spouse just haven’t gotten to? Maybe a business venture or a family event? Why not take the corporate model of a retreat and apply it to your project? Take a productive escape to a vacation rental home that is away from it all.
Always have a dream of starting a business together? This mountain cottage in Asheville, North Carolina is perfect for creating the calm tranquility you need. This vacation home offers plenty of decks and balconies for enjoying the forest and mountain views. Imagine having tea on this porch while discussing raw material sourcing.
Bring your pets and let them explore the grounds while you two focus on brand development or brainstorming. There is a safe fenced area and doggie door access, so your pets can stay occupied while you’re getting down to business. You’ll have everything you need on site from a full kitchen to a full office equipped with internet. The home office even comes with a computer and printer, so you’ll be headed home with a hard copy of that business plan before you take it to your investors.
Maybe your project isn’t business related at all. Planning a family reunion or a 75th birthday for your family matriarch are just a few of the momentous tasks that you might be tackling as a couple. Take a break from your busy working lives and head south to Punta Mita, Mexico. Sit on the beach where you can let go of all the anxiety that planning can cause. With the gorgeous waves this beach front villa is known for, you’ll be transported into a zen state.
Once your business decisions have been made, shore up the loose ends in the Burro room on the lower level. This is the only room without an ocean view, so you’ll be able to concentrate and get your office work done. You’ll have a desk top computer as well as a printer and fax machine. For international calls, a Vonage capable phone system is available for use.
