Carvill SIR Listing: 6 Vacation Homes You Can Own for $800,000

Whether it’s a log cabin nestled deep in the Montana woods or an upscale beach cottage in the Bahamas, sometimes you just need a place to get away. These properties all offer an escape from the ordinary for $800,000. Choosing the right location and making a smart financial decision for your vacation home can seem a tall order, but the six properties below are striking in their balance of both.

Londonderry, Vermont, USA

Lee Brown & Bobby WaiteFour Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty

Set on 30 acres in the Vermont countryside, this early American-style homestead is the perfect pastoral getaway. Built in the late 1700s, this multi-building country cape has been outfitted with modern amenities including in-floor radiant heating and a new gas range. Start the day with a bath in the master ensuite’s deep soaking tub, and take your morning coffee outside to enjoy the view of distant Bromley Mountain on the stone-tiled patio—this retreat is undeniably about taking it slow. The reclaimed post and beam style living space features tall, A-frame ceilings and an antique wood-burning stove. After skiing in the nearby mountains or exploring the property’s trail system, ease yourself into the sauna or fully-tiled hot tub.

La Romana, Dominican Republic

Jolanthe SuchySergio Llach Sotheby’s International Realty

Stop dreaming and start living your beachside idyll in this enchanting Dominican home away from home. The property is located in the tranquil beachside neighbourhood of Los Lagos, just steps from Playa Minitas beach. The east-facing, three-bedroom home is the ideal locale for those looking for a relaxing tropical getaway, but also has the potential to generate extra income as a vacation rental. Vaulted ceilings and whitewashed walls translate to a serene space that blends seamlessly with the tiled patio and turquoise pool just outside. With an outdoor brick oven and spacious seating area surrounded by palm trees and tropical flowers, you’ll be tempted to spend every spare moment here.

Lakemont, Georgia, USA

Yetty ArpAtlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty

Escape to the South with this contemporary retreat custom-designed by renowned interior designer Jill VanTosh. The open-concept living space features exposed beams and floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the space, bringing the majesty of the outdoors in. Spend the day lakeside, tend to the property’s garden, or lounge on the wraparound terrace and soak up some of that Southern sunshine. In the evening, build a bonfire in the fire pit and settle in to easy Adirondack chairs for stellar stargazing.

O’ahu, Hawaii, USA

Carvill Sotheby’s International Realty

Hide away in this snug vacation property on Hawaii’s O’ahu island. Situated alongside preservation land and perched on a tropical hillside, the residence is one of only four single-family dwellings in a two-acre condominium project. Step outside onto the private balcony and enjoy the view of the Kaneohe Bay and Kualoa Ridge—or just open the wall-to-wall sliding glass doors that lead into the main living space and let the tropical breeze inside. The neutral-toned kitchen, with built-in koa cabinetry and terra-cotta-toned tile work, features picture windows that look out to the lush flora surrounding the oasis. Bonus: it’s an easy commute to all that nearby Honolulu and Waikiki have to offer.

Whitefish, Montana, USA

Sonja BurgardGlacier Sotheby’s International Realty

Sitting on 11.3 acres on Montana’s Whitefish Lake, this cabin is a quintessential forest getaway. With expansive views of the lake and the woods beyond, this charmingly rustic log cabin is a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world: take a seat on the porch as the sun rises, saunter through the spellbinding woods, spend the day on the lake, and come home to soak in the tub bathed in natural light. The property also features a level building site for those looking to expand, as well as a dock with shared lake access and boat slips. This is the place to bask in the restorative influence of the wilderness.

Elbow Cay, The Abacos, Bahamas

Jane PattersonDamianos Sotheby’s International Realty

Things really do slow down in the Bahamas, especially at this upscale beach cottage located in the Abaco Islands. Aptly named the Abaco Rum Punch, this little oasis features three bedrooms, cypress wood walls, and ceramic floors to keep you cool in the tropical heat. The main living space spills out to the balcony, leading to a private pool and deck. Walk barefoot down to the beach, just minutes away, and soak up the sun or partake in the area’s excellent surfing—it’s all about taking your time.

Everyone needs to get away from the everyday. Whether you prefer the woods or the beach as your chosen escape, these properties all offer a space where you can recreate in style.

With an option for every portfolio, find your next beach escape or country address with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand.
