There is a lifestyle trend that we’re seeing a lot of today, and that’s grandparents being intimately involved in the raising of their grandchildren. These once empty-nesters are welcoming their grandchildren into the daily lives, and homes, with open arms.
It’s lovely to see families spending so much time together and great for grandchildren to spend so much time with their grandparents. But these once empty-nesters are discovering that there may not be enough room in their downsized home to fit the whole clan comfortably so often.
Many of these grandparents aren’t prepared to move back into larger homes, but they are on the hunt for leisure homes that will accommodate the extended family. Suddenly family cottages with five or more bedrooms are in high demand. Equally sought after are cottages with additional cabins or bunkies on the property. Not only are these the perfect place to house extended family when visiting, but they also make a great place to have other guests stay when entertaining, something many active boomers are doing often.
These cottages and other leisure homes, such as country homes and second homes, can be used year-round to enjoy the company of extended family and friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.
