Our cabin is 3 hours away. We are there 75% of the weekends of the year. Its far enough to be away, but close enough to go often. Spend a few weeks in the summer there and a few weeks in December too... actually most holidays. Years ago my kids chose the cabin over softball and baseball for their summer activities. None of them regretted it, and the list of friends who wanted to go got longer every year. The whole place is the best single investment in family I could have made. If your family is truly onboard with it 3 hours isn't bad. My wife and I do more communicating on the drives than any other time. Its a big part of our life. Hunting, fishing, boating, and all our great friends are there.For those that own a cabin or property for your personal 'get away', how far away is it from your house?
Is there a preferred distance to have a Get Away?
