Al and I are considering - help us narrow it down:



Some of the country’s most expensive rentals come with lavish features and opulent finishes – in addition to eye-popping price tags. Can you picture yourself inside?

I'll just stay right here on my quiet little mini-mountain with the beautiful view.

San Fran I'd need to know if it was the "wet" side, and way too many stairs. Chicago - nope, cold and ugly and the view out that window is not that great. NY - winner. Rocky Mountain - another winner, but way too much cold so you'll need the Miami beach house too. Also for NY - too much winter to be an only residence. I think you'd better keep looking, you're not there yet.

Funny, when I saw the 1st photo, before I read the comments, I thought "San Francisco". My grandparents lived
in a similar home in SF for many years. ALL of the SF Bay Area has soaring rents. We just sold our mountain/weekend
home in the mountains so I vote for the Rocky Mountains.

I vote for the Windy City ( Chicago ) ......We lived there when my DH Terry was in college......nothing that expensive ( we were poor college students ! )
All of the photos are gorgeous !

Probably none of the above for me.. can't you just see me living in one of those,, hob knobbing with " high mucky mucks" and reusing sheets of parchment paper for baking...or refilling my water bottle from my own filtered water...:icon_razz:
try this place... but we have no M* close:))))

The ski retreat would be our cup of tea!

I vote for Chicago .... I have a spare bedroom upstairs .... you can see the downtown skyline if you get up on the roof .... and my rent would be soooooo much more reasonable! Of course you would have to share the second floor with my Juki and Grace frame. (Sorry, no elevator.)

Oh, Sandy! Maybe you should come to Louisiana, our rent is much more quilter friendly. Any of the places you have posted would run MSQC out of business with the loss of your purchasing power. LOL!

Miami, that place looks like it was made for a King and Queen. But the rent! Are you serious...

jjkaiser
September 28th, 2015, 12:49 AM
And yet if you moved to Chicago we would be neihgbors. I am "just" 90 miles north! That would be a plus for me!

Midge
September 28th, 2015, 12:57 AM
Sandy, thank you so much for the invitation! Boy could I use a vacation. I understand completely your need to have your many guests pay the rent during their stays. I will plan to stay 30 - 45 minutes, depending on which property you settle on. Let's talk dates later, k?

Rocky Mountain Ski Retreat would be my choice. But, if you chose Miami, you would only be a few hours away from me!

I vote for the beach house, I saw a room that would make a wonderful quilting room - all you need to do is put all that exercise equipment in storage.

I agree. I think running a foot pedal is exercise anyway. Good for the calves.

Would love to have roucky mountains. You would only be closer to me. I know great fabric stores here and Vegas and even in Salt lake. But look like some major price tags. My advise is follow your heart

Yes, host a retreat!! Although there is NO parking available in SF,
even if we car pooled you have to move your car twice a week
for street cleaning! lol! Get a place with a long driveway.

I must agree with Sonic! NONE of these would work. Any choice would take you too far from M* and me!

New York. You can always go to the Hamptons to the beach. See all the plays on Broadway. Go to MOOD for fabric. Best food in the world at your fingertips, both street food and high end dining. If I could afford any of these rentals, I could always take myself off to some other venue. Can I visit you whatever property you and Al decide on???

September 28th, 2015, 05:18 PM
I don't care where it is. Just have an extra room for me and I'll gladly move in and help pay the rent.

Those poor people can't even afford a nice quilt for their beds. Or maybe they don't have any friends to make them one.

September 29th, 2015, 01:03 AM
Definitely the Rocky Mountain home, although Aspen is a bit crowded during ski season. You are right, Snip Snip! No quilts in sight! Such a shame!
