For many individuals the thought of owning a lake home is a dream. For others it becomes a reality…a dream come true.

For some it is a weekend getaway, for others, a permanent year-round residence or semi-retirement home.



During my 36-year career in real estate I’ve often found we are motivated by fond childhood memories of vacationing at a lake or ocean cottage. The sounds of waves lapping gently at theshoreline of a lake or the chilling call of a loon and days spent on the water—reminders of our early years at the lake.

Or the sounds of crashing waves, the scent of salt air, long sandy beaches, and seafood…childhood memories at the ocean.

There are so many choices: lakes, ocean, ski resort, or golf course. So many clients have commented over the years the #1 reason they selected the Lakes Region was pure location. They found they got the best year-round value for their money to enjoy all 4 seasons. Sure, everyone loves the ocean. But what do you do during the winter months? You can’t ski, snowboard, cross-country ski, snowmobile, or ice fish at the ocean. What about boating, water-skiing, kayaking, and swimming. It’s simply a lot harder and colder at the ocean and not as “user friendly” as the lake.



Here’s the answer:

The Lakes Region is only an hour’s drive to NH’s seacoast (Rye Beach and Hampton Beach) and is only 1 hour and 15 minutes from Ogunquit Beach in Maine. So on those days when you’re looking for a change of pace, salty air, crashing waves, and fried clams it’s an easy day trip back and forth. That’s the beauty of our stunning Lakes Region area…pure demographics and distance, a taste for all seasons: lakes, rivers, mountains, golf courses, skiing, hiking and the ocean nearby. The Lakes Region is less than a 2 hour drive from the Boston market, which is very appealing. The White Mountain National Forest with its 750,852 acres of forests, towering peaks, rivers, and ski areas is just up the road. Vermont and Maine attractions a day trip away, and the aura of Canada is only 3 hours away. Try getting this combination in Colorado, Florida, or Utah. Great states, but bring your airline tickets or plan on a lengthy road trip.


Stay tuned for Part 2: the next step after you’ve defined your search for a lake house.
