There’s not much missing in the Dartmouth-Sunapee region. And the Eastman Community knows it. With lakes, nearby rivers and
mountains, a golf course (turned cross country
course in winter months), tennis courts,
sailing, boating, canoes, kayaks, restaurants,
and lakeside concerts and festivals, Eastman
Community is the perfect home away from
home or ‘forever’ spot.
With Boston just two hours away and
Dartmouth just around the corner, culture, art,
theatre, and lifelong learning opportunities
are at residents; and ;isitors; fingertips; The
blend of nature, culture, and endless activities
led Money Magazine to name nearby Hanover
(Dartmouth’s hometown) one of the ‘ Top 25
Places to Retire’ in the country.
Eastman’s 3,600 acres in the Upper Valley
just minutes from Hanover provides the
lifestyle to go with it all.
Eastman Community is one of those places
you just have to see. So add it to your list and
plan your trip at www.eastmannh.org.
