Weekend Cottage in New Hampshire or Seasonal Home for Retirees
This community, Lake Forest Resort, geared to older adults makes a perfect summer home for snowbirds. Spend the winter down south with the palm trees, but escape the southern heat and humidity to spend spring, summer and fall in comfort, surrounded by woods and not far from a first-class lake, Great East Lake. Situated on the Maine-New Hampshire border, it is the third largest lake in New Hampshire.
You won't believe all the amenities at Lake Forest Resort or all the features included in the cottages. It's a fantastic opportunity to live in a rustic setting yet in complete comfort.
This cottage is move-in ready and fully furnished, even down to the pots and pans.

My Friends Are Selling Their Cottage - Summer 2015
When I heard that Hank and Barbara were putting their place in Lake Forest Resort up for sale, I told them I would feature it on my blog. It's a lovely place, just a few years old and in wonderful condition with lots of upgrades.
You can see the photos that I took of it and displayed on my blog, Summer in New Hampshire. It's a very tempting cottage. It's move-in ready, as it is fully furnished, even down to the pots and pans.

Demand Has Increased
