I love living in the country but still about an hour from Boston! Nothing gets better than Lee. Minutes from the ocean and minutes from skiing. It is amazing.

I've lived in Lee for 12 years and I absolutely love it. It has a small town country feel, but is close enough to shopping and cities so you don't feel isolated. The school district is fantastic. I'd recommend living here to anyone.
I have loved living here for the past 10-11 years, however I would really love to experience somewhere new. If I were to move, I would definitely stay within New England- Vermont has always been an area of interest. I plan to have my own farm some day, so I would love to stay in an area where land is available. In the past few years, I haven't seen a lot of changes in Lee, however there have been a lot of changes in the nearby town, Durham, due to their University (UNH). Most of the changes have been for the better of the campus, but I feel like the town is becoming overfilled during the school year.
