NH and VT are now the same as Massachusetts. Very high property taxes (like NY City), incredible levels of over-regulation by government.

The NH and VT of 30 years ago does not exist anymore.

to the OP, you say you want to get away from the city life. Have you ever lived on a farm? Raised crops/livestock?

Just asking because if you haven't already done those things, you might want to consider renting a farm and trying out the lifestyle for a while before investing your life's savings in buying a place where you just might find life a little too hard, or a little to boring compared to city living.
