New Hampshire second home, golf, ski , retire or all 3

A second home in the Mountains must provide the following items to be a successful purchase for the weekend warrior with a goal of being a passive investor.


Recreation…if it doesn’t provide a host of fun activities you are hard pressed to take the next step.


Proximity… if you can’t get there in all seasons for all reasons, maybe that doesn’t cut the mustard?


Affordability… If you struggle to keep it afloat it takes the joy out of ownership.


Goals… if it doesn’t tick off all the boxes above, it might be the wrong purchase/

 Jacl O'Lantern Nh golf

Ask your self these questions: Is there something to do year round that I would look forward too? Is the property easy enough to get to that I don’t dread the trip? Is there opportunity to generate income while still having access to the property?  Do I see myself using it through retirement…or does selling it down the road provide for my ultimate goal?



The Jack O’ Lantern Condominiums in Woodstock New Hampshire provides wonderful recreational choices…on-site 18 hole golf course, Tennis, indoor and outdoor pools, River frontage in the summer, Snowmobiling trails in the winter and is located two hours from Boston and less than ten minutes to Loon Mountain ski area.

Steve Loynd I can only imagine that this condo will be scooped up quickly at this price. A super location and place to live.

Thanks Kristin, Sandy and Norm... I think it does tick off all the boxes for a vacation home with a upside investment.
