Live and work in Boston, but make memories in New Hampshire

Live and Work in Boston, but make memories up north in New Hampshire.


A recent trend is taking hold on many currently living in the "BIG" city. They love their convenient location in town, but they are buying lifestyle homes in the North Country. When Boston replacement properties exceed $1,000/ Square foot families are opting to stay where they are and making memories in the mountains. When you can purchase a home on 2 acres and on the river a few miles from Loon Mountain ski resort for under $160/ square foot... or have a custom built slope side home for under $300/ square foot people are grabbing a great place 2 hours north of the city and bringing their recreational equipment here.

 Riverfront home..$239,900



  Many are looking for outdoor adventure, and we have you covered on that score…Skiing, Zip lining, mountain bike trails kayaking and endless White Mountain National Park Lands to explore are right at your new back door. Not looking for that type of Adventure? How about a fire-pit in the back yard, or that tree house you always wanted to build for the kids…well you can’t do that in down town Boston.

 Loon Slope side Custom home


  Many families love the easy highway access, setting their cruise control in the car and enjoying that uninterrupted and meaningful conversation time with kids and their spouse along the way. While our well established resort area offers well appointed and often furnished homes on private sites, with water sports, golf courses, small town parades and fireworks plus friendly locals who moved here and love their homes as much as you will.

 2 acre Chalet w/ Garage $237,500

                                Trading up not out

  My Boston friends tell me city listings sell before they have a chance to see them and often for 10-to-15% above asking prices. White Mountain homes offer a safe, and fun family retreat, where friends are draw together and where you wouldn’t have to beg your loved ones to visit for the Holidays, a weekend get away… or a place to watch the big game and shout at the top of your lungs.

 Lincoln NH condo $225,000

                                 Rental or Retirement

Many New Hampshire resort area home owners are able to lease seasonally or short term to cover some of their cost of ownership. While others enjoy the no-income tax or sales tax environment of our state and retire to their once second home. This tend has been happening for years. The Ski, golf, tennis, hiking groups are where many long term connection start, once involved many folks move here full time and as I said earlier…it is easy to get the kids to visit when you have the mountains as a draw.

 Walk to the Lake...$300,000
