Living in a city does have its perks, but even city-dwellers dream of escaping to some small comfortable house or cottage surrounded by wilderness to let their weary souls re-charge. All of these beautiful houses surrounded by picturesque views will inspire you to get away from it all – for a weekend or for good!
Most isolated homes like these had practical uses, and some still do – as hunting lodges or farm houses. These days, however, more and more such homes are instead rented out to people who want a peaceful place to rest or work.
Vote for your favorite house! If you've been to one or have just photographed one, we'd love to see it!
