Newfound Lake: The Secret is Out

Posted 10-01-2015 at 02:42 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 1960s, 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...

The Porch - The Lakes Region Real Estate Report November 2015

The Porch - The Lakes Region Real Estate Report November 2015



As I was performing the annual fall ritual of bringing in the porch furniture, I thought it might be a good time to reflect, pause, and ponder that specific American architectural institution; the porch. In America, we have front porches, side porches, back porches, entry porches, screened porches, three season porches, four season...

Lakes Region, NH vs. Cape Cod, MA

Posted 01-13-2016 at 09:06 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...

My Vacation at the Lake

Posted 08-09-2008 at 05:25 PM by Don
Updated 08-16-2008 at 09:22 PM by Don

Day 1

We arrived today for a week on the Lake. I am going to post at least once a day to this blog with some comments, observations and a summary of what we did. I'll briefly report on the restaurants we went to and anything I find interesting. We are staying on the water near Weirs Beach and hope to be out on the boat as much as possible.

The weather is better than expected today with scattered clouds and temperatures in the mid-70s. The boat traffic at the Weirs was...

New Blog Feature

Posted 05-18-2008 at 12:16 PM by webmaster

Welcome to our new Blogs. They can be used to post thoughts, musings, rants, information and just about anything else on your mind.

Unlike a forum thread, you control your blog. You can choose to allow comments or not and can moderate the comments if you want to. Although we encourage you to post about subjects related to the Lakes Region this is not required. You can blog about anything you want here while the Forum will still be completely dedicated to Lakes Region topics.

Interesting area: A milestone day in our family today

Posted 05-18-2008 at 05:18 PM by Skipper of the Sea Que

Hello,

Thanks to the Webmaster for yet another feature on this great web site.

A few hours ago we returned from the college graduation and early dinner celebration for our 1st child, daughter Lauren. Boy how quickly time passes. Our other child, Jonathan, graduates from High School soon and is off to college in September.

So today as my kids grow, mature, and develop just as they are supposed to do, I'm full of many different emotions.

Island Life

Posted 05-19-2008 at 03:07 PM by hazelnut

This is a great new feature and I applaud the Webmaster for allowing this. I have decided to use this space to blog about Island Life.

THE SEARCH BEGINS
So often questions arise concerning Island Life and all that comes with it. There are so many great things about life on Cow Island that probably mirror those experiences on many of Lake Winnipesaukee's islands. As most islanders would attest there are many challenges to life on the islands but the reward is so sweet.

A great long weekend at the Lake

Posted 08-26-2008 at 04:35 PM by Winni Luvr

First time I came up with the rest of the Family....Hubby and youngest daughter, they unfortunately could not share in our 2nd trip up because of work obligations for my Husband and Band Camp for...

Triscadecaphobia. Afraid of numbers? Welllll, it depends.

Posted 06-13-2008 at 08:58 AM by Skipper of the Sea Que

I've had many ideas of what I could write in my Blog then I sit down to type and my mind goes blank. That's fodder for another Blog entry some other time.

Today is Friday the 13th and I'm reminded that some folks are afraid of the number 13. Some elevators and buildings don't even recognize a 13th floor - the floor number "jumps" from 12 to 14. All this fear because of superstition about the number 13. Combine that with a Friday and some people cower. Triskaidekaphobia,...

Moving Day

Posted 05-28-2008 at 07:22 AM by hazelnut

After signing the Purchase and Sales agreement in July of 2002 the race was on! The race to find..... FURNITURE. You see, the place was completely empty. Yup, most likely the only Island house in the history of Island houses to come completely UN-furnished, save for a wicker furniture set. So we began the process of asking any and all friends and family members for free furniture. You'd be surprised what you can get if you just ask. I found myself traveling all over the state of MA, to pick...

The Lake will help us keep together + other stuff

Posted 05-30-2008 at 09:15 PM by Skipper of the Sea Que

We all appreciate the kind comments, thanks. While Lauren is looking for work, one of the requirements is the ability to be off the weeks we have scheduled for the Lake. The last few seasons she spends a night or 3 every few weeks on board the boat with a few of her girlfriends. I would do a day trip up to drive them in the boat.

Lauren also is the one who helps me with boat chores. She secures us at the dock, does the canvas, AC wire and will drive (not dock) if she has to (yes,...

Island Impressions (on hold)

Posted 06-25-2008 at 02:21 PM by hazelnut

As I sit here today I am beyond excited. My wife and I have spent the past two days doing little projects around our home. All in preparation for our trip up to the Island. We will be spending almost the entire summer on the island.

With that said I will post-pone my much anticipated "First Impressions" to a later date. I will post that once we get settled in this week and I have time to sit by the water and type away. For now I wanted to blog on about what I am feeling...
