What type of cottage matches your family's March Break travel style?

Whether you prefer to travel in style or on budget, the perfect March Break cottage getaway for your family is out there. Cottage rentals are a great way to get out of town, without the hustle and bustle that comes with hotels in a tourist town.

What type of vacation rental best suits your family's travel style?

1. The Budget-conscious Travellers

When this family ventures out of town, the most important part of the trip is the fun they'll have together.

Signs you're a budget-conscious traveller: you take lots of pictures sightseeing, but you don't bother with trinkets and souvenirs; you eat modestly for the whole trip so you can splurge on a great meal on your last night; and you've always got your trusty canteen with you because paying $5 for bottled water is highway robbery.

Budget-conscious travellers focus on the essentials for a fun and comfortable stay: a clean kitchen for making family meals, a cozy living space for downtime and comfortable beds for a good night's rest. When searching for March Break accommodations, this family will look to stay on budget by keeping just outside of the main tourist drag where room rates and attractions often come at a premium rate.

Cottage style: clean, no frills cottage with the essentials and just enough room for quality family time.

2. The Quirky Adventure Seekers

This pack would never pass up an opportunity to travel off the beaten path and try something new.

Signs you're a quirky adventure seeker: your travel motto is "Why not?"; and your family and friends are actually excited to see your vacation pics when you come home.

The quirky adventure-seeking family may lean towards unique accommodations near, or right in the middle of, spectacular natural scenery just waiting to be explored.

Cottage style: a quirky and secluded lakeside yurt.

3. The Pampered and Posh Travellers

Even when they're away at the cottage, this family wants all the comforts of home...and then some!

Signs you're a pampered and posh traveller: you like to know the thread count for the bed linens; and your ultimate vacation objective is to let the worries of daily life melt away in the hot tub or in the pool.

The pampered and posh pack enjoys quality family time in seclusion, without necessarily feeling like they're "roughing it" out in the woods. Top notch amenities and beautiful views are a must for any vacation to truly feel like a getaway.

Cottage style: a fully-appointed chalet a short distance away from the spa and fine dining.

4. The Active Nature Lovers

For these nature lovers, the most important part of any trip is discovering what adventures lay beyond the walls of the cottage.

Signs you're an active nature lover: the sooner you can get unplugged on vacation, the better; your hiking boots have covered a lot of terrain; and your outdoor survival skills are unparalleled.

Active, nature-loving travellers love a good challenge and are extremely resourceful. They don't need much, but they know how to work with what they've got.

Cottage style: a cozy off-the-grid log cabin, free of 21st century gadgets and nuisances.
