    I had been going to a buddy's (two cabins away) for about 18 yrs. Mine went up for sale about 4 years ago and I never let it hit the open market. I owned it lock stock and barrel in about 5 days. Not many come up for sale. They don't usually leave the family or get outside of a close nit group of friends. It is my "happy" place.

    I cant find an aerial views of town... But if I did it would be pretty boring. A lot of trees :)

    We live about 40 minutes west of Boston in a small old New England Town. Picture Norman Rockwell and you have our main street. the town was settled in the 1600's and formed as an independent town in 1724 by one of the early in honor of one of the benefectors of Harvard College - Thomas Hollis. We have a lot of old architecture from the colonial (pre-1790) and Greek Revival (1840-1860) eras.

    The town is known for a few things, among then the "balancing rock", the origin of "Casey at the Bat" and old tavern that George Washington stopped into while traveling though the area.

    I like that from my house I can walk to a pub (built in an 1840 RR station), small community supermarket, general store (open since the 1863), drugstore, 3 different coffee houses, bank, 2 pizza joints, 2 liquor stores, the hardware store, auto parts, etc. and the town beach.

    The main street through town. This is a 20 minute walk.

    Lake Winthrop and the town beach. About a mile and a half away.

    The Blancing Rock. Its said that George Washington's troops tried to tip it over on a march through town in November 1789...

    And then the general had a drink at the Littlefield Tavern.

    And this is the view as you head down the street toward my house. Did I mention the trees? ;)

    Jharkin: Now I know why I love the New ENgland States! I plan on taking a trip through there in the next few years with the kids. The last time I was down there was 9 years ago. It's been too long. Super nice/historical area!!
