Hi teachers~

I am looking for a name for a house people have for special occasions (vacation ot weekend)

Beach or mountain (hose/home/cabin)

Which one is the most common word?

Is there anything else?

Thanks in advance~


In Ontario, a lot of people have a cottage, often beside a lake in the forest.

It's regional, so it depends where you live. Where I grew up in the North Central region of the U.S., it was "cottage", but in other areas I hear "cabin". There are no doubt other favorite words for that idea in other parts of the world.

I've heard "shack" in Australia, and "dacha" in Russia.

Thank you so much for your help~
