Going on holidays is a great way to bond with family – and to form new ties with loved ones and partners.
And, having your own holiday home means you can jet off as much as possible to your favourite destination.
A man recently opened up about a dilemma involving his family’s holiday cabin, reports the Sun.

His girlfriend was excited to be invited to the home where generations of his family had spent the summer, he wrote on Reddit.
But, she was fuming when he said she’d need to pay £300 to come along.
He claimed that as the cabin is so old it needs “constant maintenance”.
And, he noted that his grandparents were too old to do the work themselves and couldn’t afford to hire workers alone.
The bloke said: "This has caused them to implement a fee system.
"The rule is as follows; every person from the age of 20 years old need to pay an annual fee to be allowed to stay at the cabin.
"The size of the fee varies as it is calculated according to how many people plan on using the cabin, and how big the upkeep costs were the previous year."
While the wider family was happy with the arrangement the man’s girlfriend was shocked at the £300 fee.
He said: "She was ecstatic about the idea of meeting my extended family and going to the cabin, as she's very curious about it after hearing me talk about it a lot.
"Naturally, I sat her down and told her about the rule and how she needed to pay, as everyone else paid, and it was only fair for her to do so as well since she would be using the cabin when coming with me this year."
The woman decided not to go on the trip as "the idea of paying this fee really upset her."
"We had a big argument where she concluded with saying she would make other plans without me this summer," the Reddit user wrote.
He noted: "The rule is very simple and made completely fair on everyone, I don't understand why she thinks she should be exempt from it.
"My brother told me I should just pay her fee for her as my extended family really would like to meet her, but I really don't think that's fair for me to pay double the fee when she's completely capable of paying it herself."
In the comments, some people ripped the man apart.
One wrote: "Even the audacity of wanting her to pay is a huge red flag."
While another added: "She's perfectly within her rights not to want to spend 200-400 dollars for a weekend at a shared, broken-down cabin.
"It's not her family's property, she has no emotional attachments to it, and she may never reap the benefits of fixing it up."
