Bearfoot Creek vs. The Rest

Last week I discussed why one should choose Bearfoot Creek in the Mount Washington Valley over another trailside home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was brought to my attention that while the comparison is great for people that do not know what area of the country they'd like to be in, it doesn't hold true for people who already know they want to come to the Northeast.

I attended Johnson & Wales University in Providence (And, NO, I'm not a chef!) and spent some of my years there living right downtown. I loved every second of it. Walking to class, walking to dinner and shopping, the hustle and bustle, the proximity to Boston and NYC, all of it. There was always something to do, an art gallery opening, a concert, street fairs, I never got bored. Coming from Maine, even a small city like Providence was a huge difference for me. But this strange thing began to happen every time I went home to visit. I realized how relaxed life is here. I noticed that my shoulders would loosen up as soon as I saw the Welcome to Maine sign. Living in the city, whether you realize it or not, brings a tension and stress that in my opinion can only be cured with some time spent in the mountains.

Making the decision to buy a vacation home is only the first piece of the puzzle. If you are a skier from Massachusetts, or RI, or even New York, chances are you have spent your life visiting different ski areas in the Northeast. The easy choice would be to choose to buy a vacation home on your favorite ski mountain. But aren't all of them pretty great? The Mount Washington Valley offers that certain something that you aren't going to find anywhere else. Our town is the perfect mix of tourist friendly and hometown comfortable. For every one big box store you will find dozens of mom and pops. For every chain restaurant with a dozen teenagers microwaving your food, you can bet on either side of it there will be a place where you will get a meal made by the owner, who got his recipes from his Sicilian grandmother. We are the perfect mix.

Most importantly, we are far less expensive than other big mountains in the Northeast. An unlimited season pass at Attitash will cost you $799. Killington's price? $1,349 for the season. Okemo? $1,619. More than double the cost of Attitash! Between the drive up and then paying for meals and entertainment besides skiing the entire time you are here, vacations can be expensive enough. Make the right choice!

Bearfoot Creek offers vacation home buyers a very unique experience. With only 22 homes ever being built on site, you can rest assured that it will never become a busy neighborhood. Your privacy will always be protected, and you will be able to sit back and enjoy your vacation without worrying about where you will be staying, or if the noisy neighbor will be up all night playing beer pong again. You work hard enough all week long, Bearfoot Creek will make it easy to relax and play. 17 Bearfoot Creek is all finished, and just waiting for you to move in and enjoy the rest of the season.
