                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My husband, Art, and I bought our first home in the Mount Washington Valley in 2004. First, we used it as a vacation getaway but eventually, loved the area so much, we retired here in 2007. In 2009, went looking for a house that visitors to the area would enjoy vacationing at and would feel at home in. We found this perfect house just minutes from 5 beaches and close to all the attractions in the Mount Washington Valley area.
