In the New Hampshire Lakes Region, The Very Names are Beguiling

The very names are beguiling, intriguing, beckoning: Bearcamp, Shellcamp, Mirror, Crescent, Crystal, Great East, Dan Hole, Halfmoon, Hermit, Huntress, Lily, Locke, Merrymeeting, Sunrise, Suncook, Sunset, Loon, Province, Silver, Horn, Rust, Wentworth, Pine River, Saltmarsh...

The Indian names Chocura, Wicwas, Pemigewasset, Winnisquam, Paugus, Winnipesaukee, Waukewan, Winona, Ossipee, Squam, Kanaska, Opechee.

They all can be found in this area. By this area, I mean the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Glacier gouged, spring fed, interconnected by subterranean rivers each lake carries a history and fondness in the heart for those that have spent time on their waters, be it a vacation or a lifetime. Second home buyers immediately feel they somehow belong here, have always belonged here. The capacity for the homing sentiment is not something to be denied.

I have no complete information but the newspaper at times makes reference to various famous residents of the Lakes Region, usually in the obituaries. People who have, or had, the wherewithal to live anywhere yet chose New Hampshire. Not surprising to me, after all I did. Our Spencer Hughes website, recently remodeled, is a very good place to start a search for your ideal Lakes Region home or property. I look forward to assisting you in your discovery of what some believe to be the most beautiful place on earth. Check the comments section to register your opinion.
