Plan a Staycation

By Paul Bielinski

Are you too busy for a proper vacation? Maybe you’re just trying to save some money. Or maybe you just have a weekend off. No matter your reason, if you love where you live, try a staycation.


It doesn’t require travelling far. It doesn’t even require booking a hotel. All it requires is for you to take a little time to yourself. Staycating is about doing whatever you want to do. For some folks that might be spending time with family and friends. Others might prefer to spend some alone time working on a hobby. The key is to dedicate time to doing something that makes you happy.


If you’re going to be doing a lot of staycating, it might be smart to create a space in your home for it. Many Bielinski customers choose to finish off a lower-level room that can act as a hobby headquarters, game room, or any other type of personal area you can think of. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, you also have the option of looking past a room’s original purpose and turning your formal dining room or home office into something a little more fun.
A souped-up kitchen (pun intended) and a luxury master bath are two more great options when it comes to tailoring your home for the perfect staycation.


I’m a foodie and an organic junkie, so when I staycate, I cook. I’m always looking to challenge myself, so I might cook a dish that I’ve never made before, or something that takes more time than what a regular weeknight might allow. Knowing that this is where I’m happiest, I always make sure that my home is suited to my culinary needs with larger work surfaces and upgraded appliances.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.

  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
