steve loynd nh realtor: New Hampshire found by fate enjoyed by many - a photographic journey - 01/12/14 10:31 AM
Back in the late 1800's a road crew working to establish a route through a difficult mountain pass came along these beautiful falls. Many other sites were found in a similar manner (Sabbady Falls Rte 112)...I'll share a few I find enjoyable in the area in and around where I list and sell properties..

On another survey and road excavation trip Mount Pemigewasset was named after a local Indian you can see the stone face and ridge line of trees resembles and Indian's head with feather headdress.

I have been lucky enough to have a number of my photos published in various forums...and I'm often asked why I don't do a calendar of my regional shots?

I Love New Hampshireso here are a few of my favorite shots from in and around my state...LIVE FREE OR DIE.. NH's Motto

steve loynd nh realtor: South Peak Sales at Loon Mountain NH - 11/08/13 11:10 AM
The numbers say it all, and It should be obvious to anyone that the real estate market is showing signs of recovery...well you may be thinking thank you Captain obvious! But think again second home sales are the first to slow and the last to recover...and here at Loon Mountain ski resort, we are seeing that recovery. The number of Condos on the market, the number of days the average property spends on the market and the selling prices on similar style places have all gotten better for the sellers in this market place.

steve loynd nh realtor: What makes my state wonderful in a photo...New Hampshire - 10/13/13 07:35 AM
 Some would argue the first in the nation primary gives New Hampshire a lot of clout for a small state. Some would suggest our motto of "live free or die" truly makes a statement about our heritage. But personally I love the 4 seasons of recreation offered in the White Mountains national forest. I also think the no income tax or broad based sales tax makes New Hampshire a great place to live and conduct business. But I always go back to the mountain views as the one best reason to enjoy life in the north country.

The Kancamagus Scenic Highway is 35 miles of federal forest with no gas stations, power lines or any residential structures of any-kind for the entire trip.

steve loynd nh realtor: Slope side at Loon mt Lincoln NH- ski-in and ski-out. - 08/10/13 06:51 AM

This home bridges the gap between the four elements most people want in a ski home…#1 function, #2 proximity, #3 price & #4 maintenance. It is incredibly difficult to find a property that has it all at Loon Mountain ski resort in Lincoln New Hampshire.
The best locations were built long ago and therefore need work or modernization. The shiny new properties are a million dollars or quite far from the slopes and the properties that function perfectly come with a high monthly fee. This home has it all: Function- 5 bedrooms and a second living space … (4 comments)

I spent the last 10 years building this very cool property…it’s 6 miles from the Loon Mountain Ski Resort, I completed a 50,000 square foot pond after 5 years of engineering, permits and digging, the home has 1,725 feet of river-frontage and the 12.4 acre site has a spectacular view of Franconia Notch and comes with a private island.

steve loynd nh realtor: Riveredge at Loon Mountain - Waterfront ski house- Lincoln NH - 04/29/13 01:17 PM
The Rivers are filled with April Showers…and I’m told it brings May flowers. While there are still traces of snow on the ski trails at Loon Mountain next door, this featured home is starting to bloom.
One of the most unique things about this location is of course the direct water frontage on the Pemigewasset River…the other thing is – you can’t build this close to the water anymore. In 2008 the Shore Land Protection act changes the set back rules on lakes and rivers in New Hampshire (this home was built in 2002).

Call it a busman's holiday if you like, but on Easter I visited my favorite 100+ year old hotel...with a killed view, and a place our company will be doing some future building of custom homes. But Back to the "VIEW"...I think you'll agree this is pretty darn nice.

A dramatic view as you approach the hotel...this time of year the golf course isn't open, but it is a Trent Jones classic 100+ year old course with great challenges and of course great views.

Late March skiing is one of the best times of the year to enjoy the slopes...the snow is firm in the morning after a cold night and the sun is strong and warming on the face while riding your favorite lifts to the summit. This Chair leads to the South Mountain Peak, where a … (2 comments)

steve loynd nh realtor: South Peak at Loon mountain NH - update, expansion & development news - 03/07/13 08:31 AM
In an open letter to all the homeowners at south peak, the new developer made mention of the simple due diligence routine in filing the paperwork to create an owners association comprised of five board members – two of which would be required to be owners of property at south peak. This gives a stake to the current owners and allows them to voice their concerns about future development. There are 100 owners at south peak already.
Then the really interesting information came to light about – permitting and ski area operation expansions…including a lift at the south mountain bridge.
