At what point is it okay to ignore work-related emails and messages when you're on vacation? I'm on PTO and have not gone a single day without opening my work laptop.

My brother and I are considering investing in a vacation mountain house. Thinking is that our budget is around $400K, 10% down, approx a $2K/mo loan payment. My wife and I would go in 66%. And my brother would go in 34%, since I make a higher income than him. This would serve as both a weekend getaway for us, and ideally an Airbnb rental when we are not using it. Any advice here such as: sources we should read up on, if we should start an LLC to buy this property, any other considerations?
