Charming town on the outside, but a divided mean-spirited community with a dysfunctional town government.
We live in New England! You have to be prepared for the change of seasons. Winter is cold and extremely long. Snow is great if you make the most of it-skiing, snowmobiling and outdoor activities are essential if you choose to live in this climate. The Spring is always welcomed after the long hard winters. Nice to see the blooming flowers and tress as well more activity outside. Summer is a welcoming change after the sometimes harsh winters. There are plenty of nearby lakes and beaches to travel to to escape the heat. The Fall is beautiful. The brisk air and beautiful change in color makes it my favorite season of all! Living in New England is wonderful!
