Would You Rather: Beach House or Mountain Cabin?

I'm starting a new "Would You Rather" series.  Day to day plans, dreams, and wonderings I have, and I'd love for you to play along.

My first question, Would you rather have a beach house OR a mountain cabin?  I love dreaming about the future real estate I hope to own someday, so I'm curious what would you pick? I'm torn...

A beach house would be amazing, the soothing sound of the ocean waves lulling you to sleep every night.  Salty air, sand in your toes, sunshine over the outstretch of blue.  I can see it now.

OR

A rustic-chic mountain cabin, nestled in the trees, maybe on a icy mountain creek... Quiet, peaceful, isolated from the craziness of the city.  A place where you can kick back, relax, and let your worries melt away.

Which would you pick?

Yay! I get to be the first comment. So exciting! BOTH sound equally amazing, but I would have to go with the beach house. There is something so peaceful and healing about that ocean air. Great new idea! ( :

Oooh, so fun! Beach house. The sand, calming waves, breeze off the water, sunshine... Love it!

Beach house. No question. Unless my real house is a beach house...then I could go for a mountain cabin on the side too :)

Beach house. Hands down. I think my other half would disagreee :) I would be happy with a house on the ocean or lake -- I am dying here in the midwest without any real bodies of water!

Yikes, this is SUCH a tough question. I would probably have a beach house just because I love the warmth but I would love to someday have a ski chalet

I have an abundance of beaches around me but I would chose a quiet bush, mountain home. It is difficult to find a quiet beach and my soul craves serenity and coolness.

I would choose the best of both worlds in Lake Tahoe so we could enjoy 4 season fun!

oh my.. this is such a tough choice, but i pick mountain cabin! i love the idea of being around mountains and i'm assuming pine trees and a cool breeze. i can just imagine myself sitting by a fireplace with big windows in my cabin and listening to fleet foxes while the sun sets.

i'm so glad you asked this question!

I am going to like this series!

I would choose a beach house. A nice beach house on a white sandy beach with a cool tropical breeze blowing through the window.

Definitely beach house. Even though a mountain cabin would be fun, I just love the ocean.
