Your Second Home: A Place for the Grandchildren

Your Second Home - GrandparentsMore and more retirees are calling the beautiful mountains of North Georgia home. The lovely laid-back atmosphere and natural beauty of the area, combined with the multitude of activities available, make the mountains the perfect location for retirement.

Grandparents will soon find that grandchildren feel the same way about the mountains...they LOVE them!  The ability to do the things they usually can't do at home -- fish, kayak, raft, hike, go to the drive-in -- with the extra added attraction of being able to do it with Grandma and Grandpa, makes a trip to the mountains a wonderful experience for the grandbabies.

Making your mountain home welcoming to the grandchildren is an easy proposition according to this article from The New York Times.  Enjoy!

Thanks for the info. I'm in a second home market (The Hamptons on LI) and this is good info to pass on to the Grandparents. Being one myself, I'll even use some of the pointers!

I have a vacation home and hope to give this to the children one day, perhaps as a wedding gift.
