This is an overview about the Eastman Community. As the saying goes, often imitated but never duplicated. This community is one of a kind….
A 3500 acre four season community centrally located between the college towns of Hanover, NH (Dartmouth College) and New London, NH(Colby Sawyer College) known as the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region. There are about 1000 homes and 336 townhouse style condominiums surrounding the 325 acre Eastman Lake. Residents that live here come from all walks of life. There are young families, working couples, empty nesters and retirees.
Eastman Lake is located in the center of Eastman. Swimming and sunbathing can be enjoyed from any of the six beaches. Canoeing, sailing, fishing and kayaking can be enjoyed by all. Even Loons love Eastman Lake. Most summers there is a nesting pair that raise their young on the lake. The lake is speed restricted to 10mph.
South Cove Activity Center is the new jewel of the community. It is a new building that opened in July of 2009. The design and look is amazing. The indoor heated swimming pool, fitness center with all new equipment, WiFi Internet, flat screen TV’s, community rooms are being enjoyed by the community residents. Yet there is NEVER a growd like you might find at other gyms or fitness centers. Another huge plus is the recreation department no has a permanent home which they desperately need. The best part is the building is LEED certified for energy efficiency.
The Center At Eastman is home the Bistro Nouveau, an outstanding restaurant, the golf pro shop that becomes the ski touring center in the winter.
Eastman Golf Links is 18 holes of championship golf. Major improvements took place in 06′-07′ and the course has never been better.
Tennis is another summer activity that you will find many residents taking part in. There are 12 courts in the community. Five of the courts were built in 2007. Hard True surface is the preferred surface and there are 8 courts now that are Hard True.
Miles of nature trails can be accessed from many different locations. The “Lake Trail” is just that. I like this one the best. It is a real hiking trail for 3/4 of the way around the lake. The last 1/4 is a fire lane that is a little less adventurous, which is just fine with most people, especially when there a bit tired. Other trails abound through the forest and are well marked so it is easy to find your way.
The sports field area is home to the soccer, baseball/softball fields and basketball court.
Cross Country Skiing is right out so many back doors. Easily accessed and miles of trails. Beginner to expert skier, all will be happy on these trails.
Ice Skating, when the lake freezes that’s great, but Eastman maintains a skating pond right near the Center At Eastman. So if you don’t want to shovel there is a place to skate.
Sledding, this is New Hampshire. You have to have a sledding hill! There are certain areas on the golf course where sledding is allowed.
I can go on and on……. If you would like an Eastman Info packet please sign up for one and you will receive one in a few business days. If you would rather come for a visit, I would be glad to take you on a tour.
