We all strive to meet certain goals in life. Some of us want to make enough money to travel around and experience different places, and some want to own our own piece of paradise and what defines that is up to each one of us. Some of our paradises are our own private island, beach, country, eco-friendly, historic, lakefront, golf, ranch, equestrian or mountain. Some places determine if you live on one coast or another. When buying or renting a place it often comes down to your lifestyle. Some folks are beach folks and other want to be where the mountains are and get back to nature. Mountain life isn’t for everyone, but if it’s for you then you have a lot of choices. On the East Coast, we have some great spots, and many are a short drive from Boston. Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Many of the locations offer diverse activities so there is something for just about anyone. If you would like more information about any of the properties featured contact me.
