North East- Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. I'd have a place just like the one in the Southeast right at the peak of Mount Washington.
South East- A nice chalet style place at the peak of White Top Mountain in SW Virginia. The view from up there is amazing, always windy though. I would take advantage of the wind and power the house from turbines.

Mid West- Somewhere along the shores of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan.

South West- Probably Ruidoso, New Mexico or a little closer to the White Sands.

West- Some where around Glacier National Park in Montana.

Pacific North West- Anchorage, Alaska

Interesting thread topic!

Southeast -- Mississippi
South Central/Western South (not counting Texas since I already live here! LOL) -- Ozark area of Arkansas.
Upper South -- Smoky Mountain area of Tennessee/Kentucky


Rocky Mountain -- Colorado
Southwest -- Ruidosa, New Mexico area
Pacific Coast -- Northern California


Plains -- southeastern Kansas
Central -- Great Lakes area of Michigan


Lower -- upstate New York, I guess
New England -- New Hampshire (as I have always heard it is the most conservative of this region).

It looks as we are all defining the regions as we see fit, so here's mine;

Northeast - Boston
Mid-Atlantic - Washington D.C.
Southeast - Nashville
South Central - Austin
Great Lakes - Detroit
Plains - Minneapolis
Mountain - Denver
West Coast - San Francisco

As long as money is not a factor I would prefer to be in, or near, a large metro. I realize Austin and Nashville are not very large but as I don't care for the south and the heat these seemed to be lesser evils.
