This was a challenging exercise, Jack! The mountain lookout sounds stunning but I'm an extrovert who would start to feel lonely if I was so isolated. Yet I dislike hotels as I do like my peaceful getaways without hearing neighboring residents talking. So that made it hard to pick #4, my ultimate choice Yet I love the ocean and the idea of exploring a small coastal town with only sporadic tourists appeals greatly to me. I wish I could combine the two. Then I might have a small private retreat with a stunning view of the ocean, with easy access to a charming small town to meet the locals.
