Who doesn’t dream of a small retreat for the weekend after a busy workweek or of escaping to a shady summer home in New England away from the heat of Florida? Ideally, it would be surrounded by big pines and maples with a lake not too far away. There would be interesting activities, yet plenty of quiet time on your own. Some seniors get an RV and head off to find a remote place like this.
Unfortunately, the average campground is filled with rambunctious kids jumping and screaming in the pool or riding pell-mell past you on their bicycles. Not exactly the pleasant, relaxing scenario you had in mind. For me, a senior resort is the way to go.
That’s why I love the Lake Forest Resort in central New Hampshire. There are seasonal residents who come from Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida and other overly hot southern areas. There are weekenders who live within a 2 or 3-hour driving distance and look forward to the day they can retire and be in Lake Forest for the whole summer. Then, there are individual RVers and now and then, RV rallies on the rally field. It makes a great blend of retirees and almost-retirees enjoying the delightful New England spring, summer, and colorful autumn.
Below is an example of the park models that you can buy in the resort. Only one is for sale at the moment, but you can work with the resort’s owners to order a new one to place on a lot of your choice. You can even own the lot. Most RV resorts only rent their spaces. This cottage is for sale for $73,000. It’s furnished, and only a few years old. It has central air, but one seldom needs that in the cool woods of New Hampshire.
