I would like to live right on a lake or pond so I could use a row boat whenever I want. Can anyone suggest some places where I could rent a house? Also, would I need to get a boating liscense or anything, or can I just row out there whenever I want? Are there any ponds or lakes in Manchester or right outside Manchester? Every place I have ever lived is always backed right up to other peoples houses, so I want to try to have nature as my backyard. Peace everyone

I'm on twelve acres of wooded area in Seabrook, but Ron Helwig out in Deerfield is on an area just as large, and he has both a lake and a small dock to park your boat.  I'm not sure that it would hold a very large vessel, but you may even be able to put a living area there.  It's a beautiful area in a nice, small town, and there are quite a few Ron Paul supporters out there--about the same as Searbrook, IIRC.

Most of the porc manors are up on porcmanor.com and people are pretty reasonable.  I ask $600 a month for the master bedroom, but you could get it for $500 as a porc if you will sign a lease on put up first and last.

Yes, there are lakes and ponds in/near Manchester, with many boats on them.  I don't believe you need a license.
The Lakes Region is full of small places, but don't limit yourself to there... most of NH has plenty of places as you describe.  I live near (up the road, a dirt road, wild turkeys and deer and more...) a medium sized pond, plenty of good fishing, and I know there are places for sale right on the pond itself, sitting on the market for at least a year now... yet this is far from the middle of nowhere, it's only 15 minutes or less to Concord.

As I recall, there were quite a few people talking about just buying a boat and living on the water out here in Seabrook.  It turned out to be fairly inexpensive, but I wonder if that boat would be too cold in the winter time.

There are loads and loads of waterfront properties available. I avoided them because the taxes, valuations and restrictions on use are higher than on other property. I found 5 acres with a view of only trees. it is my heaven.
