There are several benefits to having a vacation small cottage home. The most obvious benefit has a place to get away, relax and enjoy some quality time with family and friends. Another benefit of owning a small cottage home or vacation home is that if you are not fully ready to commit to using your vacation cottage home all year long, then you can profit from some rental income. Renting out your small cottage home can be an easy way to help pay down your bills. Many small cottage vacation homeowners choose to do this since they are not using the small cottage home all year long anyway. This rental income can be used to put towards the bills and the maintenance of the small cottage home if needed or can be tucked away to use later.

Another benefit of a vacation home is that you can prepare for retirement. Most people when they go on vacation try to avoid doing work; if this sounds like you, then you’re already getting a sample taste of what retirement will be like. Many people own small cottage homes or vacation homes to use seasonally until they are ready to retire. After retirement, you’ll have a second home to enjoy all year long if you choose so. If you sell your primary residence when you are retired, you can use that money to put towards your small cottage home or vacation home. Additionally, moving to a familiar, enjoyable location will make transitioning into retirement that much easier than just jumping right into living in a new place. You’ll be setting yourself up for what will be a comfortable retirement.
