Take the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Schwartz House in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, for example. This 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath LIFE Magazine Dream house really will let you live the dream, if only for a few nights. Renting for $395 per night, you and six friends can gaze out over the marsh upon which the house is built or snuggle in front of the fireplace and pretend you are the typical American family of Wright’s imagination.

If you want to go more contemporary, try the Off-Grid Glasshouse by Michelle Kaufman, which is in the Sierras. The glass walls open the home to forest and lake views while the off-grid structure will make your holiday eco-friendly as well as architecturally enriching. Or if something a little more offbeat and exotic is your calling, try out the Seashell House on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. This Eduardo Ocampo home is an eye-catcher, which means you’ll have to get used to passing tourists looking in on you as you sunbathe next to the pool. A small price to pay for such a unique retreat.
