- Robert, Kristin, tell us, where is the best place to live in New England?

- Kristin, I know you have a remarkable listing there, would you also agree that Moultonborough is a special place, that fits “the best place to live” profile?
- KHC: Yes, it is absolutely a special place.

- Give us a brief description of Moultonborough, NH.
- REG/KHC: The town of Moultonborough is bounded by Lake Winnipesaukee and Squam Lake. Moultonborough is home to the Castle in the Clouds, an estate in the Ossippee Mountains that LandVest helped to conserve in 2002, Lake Kanasatka, Red Hill and Mount Shaw. The town includes Long Island, the largest island in Lake Winnipesaukee, which is connected to the mainland by a bridge. Notable inhabitants include Robert Frost, Claude Rains, Thomas Gustave Plant and John Greenleaf Whittier. Boating is a popular sport with three public boat launches and full-service marinas available spring through fall. Beaches abound, fishing and ice-fishing is popular among salmon fisherman, and hiking is abundant within the Markus Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. Squam Lake is best known for conservation efforts, water sports and as the site of the film “On Golden Pond”.
