pressure tank size

Hi there Im getting a well drilled in the next two weeks at a cabin. It has one bathroom 1 bedroom and kitchen plus a washing machine. we stay there about 6 days a month. My question is about a pressure tank, Home depot has the flotec tanks on sell for 1/2 price the next 3 days.They have like a 18 gallon 30 gallon 42 gallon and a 80 gallon. My space is limited i can fit up to the 42 gallon one but the 30 would fit better. What size do you think would work best. My well should be less than 200 feet deep and will use 3/4 submersible pump. I would like to buy one on their sell.
thank you

The rule is as follows. The larger the tank the less work your pump does.

the fact you stay there only 6days a month is of no importance..the proper operation of your system is....min size 30 would be ok for your demand..42 would be better ...less work on pump...
