A large and ongoing issue, complicated by the fact that it is usually a seasonal property and subject to full capital gains assessment. Many offspring can't afford to take possession of a cottage that was $10K in 1950 and now $1M because neither they nor the rest of the estate has sufficient cash.reminds me of the fighting when the family cottage has to be decided upon at death of the parents.
Best option is to have a strong will that is openly discussed with your kids beforehand.
It stalked my wife's family, not upon her parent's death but their advanced age to the point they couldn't use or maintain it anymore. One cottage - five kids, with five different financial capacities and five different visions. It got so bad my wife said 'buy me out' (I'm an in-law and stay out of such matters). We have lost the use of the cottage and she has a toxic family dynamic that exists to this day. The very necessary open discussion by the parents did not happen.
