Smile of the Great Spirit

Posted 02-03-2016 at 12:02 PM by moneill
Updated 02-03-2016 at 12:05 PM by moneill (typo)

On the northern shore of the big lake, dwelt the chieftain of the woodlands, Ahanton. He was renowned for his courage, but even more so for the beauty of his daughter, Ellacoya. Many warriors pursued her. Yet all were rejected until one day, Kona, a young chief from a rival tribe to the south, appeared in the village. In response to the legend of Ellacoya’s beauty, he had traveled across the lake in his canoe to win her hand.

Leading an expedition to expel invaders, Chief Ahanton...

Lakes Region, NH vs. Cape Cod, MA

Posted 01-13-2016 at 10:06 AM by moneill

The decision to buy in the Lakes Region or on the Cape is a question that repeatedly surfaces when working with buyers looking for a second home in this area. The answer to the question is easy for someone who has lived on the lakes all his or her life. But let us at least try to look at the question objectively.

The Lakes Region versus Cape Cod debate is not an age-old question in the same category as what the universe if made of or the biological basis of consciousness, but it is...

Wolfeboro, NH Through Different Eyes

Posted 12-31-2015 at 12:59 PM by moneill

Many famous people have owned beautiful homes and estates in Wolfeboro over the years. One of the most interesting was Chiang Kai-shek. He was a Chinese political leader and a major figure in Chinese history from 1927 to 1948. His wife, Soong Mei-ling,*often called Madame Chiang Kai-shek, was also prominent in the world scene. Time Magazine named the couple “Man and Woman of the Year” in 1938. In his “New Hampshire Commentary” blog, Dean Dexter says the couple “were what Tracy and Hepburn were to...

In America, we have front porches, side porches, back porches, entry porches, screened porches, three season porches, four season...

Newfound Lake: The Secret is Out

Posted 10-01-2015 at 03:42 PM by moneill

Newfound Lake draws a captive audience year after year. Its mystique is nothing new. Frank Roche, President of Roche Realty Group, mentioned to me that when he was doing a high school project on Newfound Lake in the 1960’s, it was called one of the cleanest lakes in the country by National Geographic. Today, it is still considered to be one of the cleanest in the world.

Newfound is the 5th largest lake in New Hampshire. It encompasses 4,106 acres with 22 miles of shoreline and is...
