I have a Family Fun cocktail, a 60-1 video game, and a pool table at my house in Blue Ridge, GA. Not sure they get a lot of use, but I like having them when it's raining.
Don't put anything really nice in your house - no way would I put a new or classic machine in a rental. Even high-end rentals take a lot of abuse.
It's amazing how stupid and or inconsiderate people are:
Let's use the new cookware in the fire place
Lets rewire all the audio/tv equipment
Lets put bubble bath in the hot tub
Let's give the kid a sharpie and let him run around the house
Let's flush towels down the toilet
Let's steal the LED light bulbs
Let's cut down that tree, its blocking the view of the house next door
I could go on and on
I have a great management company, so I don't deal with much of these directly, but it annoys me when I have to replace something because someone was stupid.
You need to also consider how often or quickly you get to the house. If something breaks on your machine, people will keep trying to play it and may damage it more in the process.
We use the house about 1 weekend a month and major holidays and rent it out the rest of the time. The goal was to help defer some costs, but it now pays for itself.
