The Great North Woods is more than just a wonderful place to visit. It’s also a great place to live and work.

Live in the North Country

When you make the Great North Woods your home, the region’s miles of remote wilderness, pristine waterways, beautiful mountains and charming towns become your backyard.

The region isn’t only scenic and fun; it is also very affordable. With the median price for home sales at well under $100,000, buying a home in the North Country will be as good for your budget as it is for your soul.  

It’s a great time to live in the Great North Woods. The region is experiencing a renaissance, invigorated by new businesses and activity that is transforming the region into one of the most exciting, interesting and fun places in all of New England. Additionally, its location bordering Quebec allows you to easily enjoy international experiences. Cruise over the border, immerse yourself in French-Canadian culture for the day, and be back at night to sleep in the comfort of your own bed.

On top of things to do, the Great North Woods boasts of fun events!

The North Country’s annual Moose Festival is one of the region’s biggest events and is a favorite among both locals and visitors. Held each August, the Moose Festival features a moose-calling competition, moose chili tasting, and the opportunity to look for moose. It also includes arts and crafts vendors, a maple syrup tasting contest, horse and wagon rides, live music and more.

Another popular event is the annual Dixville Notch Music, Arts and Crafts Festival held each spring at Mohawk Falls. The festival features live music, arts and crafts vendors, delicious food, artist workshops and much more. The Harvest Festival, held each fall, showcases local growers, crafters and artists, while the region welcomes in the arrival of winter each December with the Snowflake Festival, which has horse-drawn wagon rides, Santa’s workshop, a parade and fireworks.

It’s time to make the North Country more than your favorite vacation destination. It’s time to make it your home.
