Serving New Hampshire's North Country and Vermont's Northeast Kingdom
The Great North Woods is a place of natural beauty, close-knit communities and proud people.
With four distinct seasons, and a rural landscape providing bountiful opportunities for recreation, visitors and residents alike enjoy the great outdoors for all it has to offer.
Trails and routes criss-cross the countryside, allowing for opportunities to hike, bike, ski, snowmobile and ATV. We are the "heart" of Ride the Wilds!
The wilderness landscape sets the scene for animal watching and hunting the many species that inhabit the area. In fact we even hold an annual Moose Festival every fourth weekend in August to honor our largest animal of the wild.
Pittsburg's Connecticut Lakes, the Connecticut River that divides New Hampshire and Vermont, and many other waterways make for a literal playground for fishermen and paddlers of all kinds. Canoe, kayak, boat-- whatever your preference, there's more than enough water to go around!
The land has shaped occupations, making for a region full of farmers, loggers and truckers, as well as those in the hospitality industry catering to the guests who come to experience the Great North Woods. Small businesses survive here, where few franchises and corporate companies have yet stretched their wings.
Communities are filled with spirited organizations who volunteer their time generously. School pride is rich and school sports are highly valued. Historical markers and buildings are around every corner, with the proud locals here to "tell you the story". Cultural attractions are on the rise, as well, with the Tillotson Center for the Arts in Colebrook as the hub, offering high-quality concerts for the public to enjoy.
If you are looking for a safe and full-filling place to live, work, play or stay, the North Country is it! Raise your family, find a perfect place to retire or just enjoy visiting, time and time again!
