Is there a dog size or type that is prohibited?

  • All dogs are welcome. We request no more than two per home.
  • Big dogs and little dogs are both allowed.
  • They must be in a fenced in yard or on a leash.
  • Please do not leave your dog outside to constantly bark.
  • Dog waste must be picked up if left at your neighbor’s yard.
  • Please do not walk dogs in the well house area so there will be no risk of contaminating the water.

Who is responsible for town taxes?

  • The homeowner pays the town property taxes on the home only. The park is responsible for the property taxes on the land. The park is also taxed on the resale value of the park, that’s why the rent is mainly based on the property taxes.

Can I have a fire pit?

  • Fire pits are allowed and require a permit from the town fire department.
  • Please be respectful of your neighbors and follow the town ordinance for quietness at 10pm.

Can I have a pool?

  • Pools are allowed.
  • Please check in with Dave before setting it up for placement in the yard so it doesn’t interfere with the septic.
  • Pools over 300 gallons must be filled from an outside source. A receipt can be requested by park management.

Can I drop off my rent check at the office?

  • Both parks have locked boxes at the entrances to put rent checks in or mail it to PO Box 512, Contoocook, NH 03229
  • Since the park office is also our home, we prefer people to not stop in. Please call for an appointment.
