        This weekend will be the last weekend of summer before Fall officially starts on September 22nd. Luckily, the weather is expected to be marvelous, reaching 80 degrees. Here are some suggestions for how to enjoy your last weekend of summer. Enjoy whatever you do! 

        Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough 

        This mountaintop estate is a popular tourist destination for its exquisite beauty and unique history. Visitors can choose from several activities while visiting the estate including: touring the mansion, eating at the restaurant located on the property, horseback riding and/or visiting the estate's exhibit gallery.

        DeVylder Farm in Wolfeboro 

        This local farm offers all the fruits and vegetables you'll need to make a wonderful end of summer meal. 

        Rail Trail in Wolfeboro 

        The rail trail is a great way to enoy summer scenery before foliage season. The trail is 11 miles long, beginning at Depot Street in Wolfeboro, and ends at Route 16 in Wakefield. 

        End of Summer Home Maintenance 

        This may not seem like an ideal way to spend your last weekend of summer but it could leave you feeling accomplished and prepared for the upcoming colder seasons. 

        Water Activities in The Lakes Region 

        Perhaps the best way to enjoy the last weekend of summer should somehow involve one of the many gorgeous lakes in our area. Whether boating, swimming, fishing, waterskiing, etc., enjoy the water now because soon, it will be too cold!

        New Home Essentials

        Purchasing a home for the first time can be quite exciting. However, having certain items in a new home make the experience all the more enjoyable and most of all, convenient. Make sure that you have these recommended essentials so that you can stay home and enjoy your new home as opposed to having to leave to get these items as you realize you need them. That way, there will be more time to focus on where you want to place your furniture and how you want to decorate each room.

        1. First Aid Kit - Injuries sometimes happen when moving. Make sure you're prepared!

        2. Power outage supplies - You never know when an outage will occur. Make sure to have batteries, flashlights, bottled water, etc.

        3. Fire extinguisher - Every home should have one of these. Imagine the potential damage you could prevent by having one of these quickly accessible.

        4. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors - These save lives and are absolute necessities. 

        5. Cleaning supplies - Homes can get dirty on moving days with people constantly walking from outside to the inside of your home while moving furniture and boxes. We recommend having Bleach, Comet, a broom and dustpan, vacuum, mop, floor cleaner, sponges, wipes, and rags handily available for whatever messes you may encounter. 

        6. Snow shovel -Be prepared for that first snowfall with a snow shovel. If not, you may not be able to back out of your driveway to go and get one. 

        7. Tool kit - Whether needing a hammer to hang pictures or a screwdriver to install curtain rods, be prepared by having a basic tool kit in you home. 

        8. Shower curtain - Don't wait until you're exhausted and in need of a shower on your first day in your new home to discover that you have a tub with no curtain! To avoid a wet floor or not being able to shower at all, make sure to put up one of these up on your first day. 

        9. Spare keys - Get spare keys made for your new home as soon as possible. Give a key to each member of the household that will need one.  This way, in the midst moving, if a key is misplaced or someone accidentally locks themselves out of the house, someone will most likely have a spare key to unlock the door.

        10. Lawn equipment  - Part of a home's appeal is its landscaping. Give your new home curb appeal by maintaining the lawn, hedges, etc.

        11. Appliances - It's common for people to buy homes without appliances already present. Be prepared by bringing your own from your previous residence or schedule to have new appliances delivered by your move in day.
