Let’s think about this from an investment perspective I'm all for a country house. Beach houses are a poor investment because of global warming. Also, chickens!—Hannah, Boerum Hill
Take me to the water I’d pick a beach house for sure. While the prospect of bad weather is a risk, I’d rather take that risk in exchange for a standup paddleboard in my backyard.—Lisa, Washington Heights
Oh those waves I grew up in the country so I prefer the beach because beach waves beat mosquitoes any day. Trust me on that!—Stacey, Queens
California dreaming Since I’m from Cali, I’d definitely rather have a beach house and let me mention: Who would you choose the country over surfer boys, ice cream and the ocean?—Kayla, Murray Hill (pictured below)

Verdict: Surf and sand may be #1 but a country cabin comes in a very close second!
