Last fall my mom and aunt purchased a little cabin up in the mountains. It's a couple miles away and nothing fancy, but a nice place to get away.
It doesn't have electricity, but is on a septic system and has propane powered appliances.
Just a couple hours out of the city, I'm already dreaming of summer (and winter and fall and spring) getaway weekends.
And I can't wait for some hiking adventures (like this or this).
