After you find an inhabitable, affordable, and well insulated home, it's all gravy. Enjoy a round of golf, a hike along the river, a night of live music, or just stroll down the widest Main Street in America. There are lots of local shops, eateries, and brewpubs, as well as a great lineup of independent films, plays, ballets, operas, and concerts at the Colonial Theatre.
Amenities are the name of the game around here. Things like covered parking, snow removal, and laundry facilities can really make life easier. Many rentals are in shared homes, where furnished living areas, paid utilities, and cable/internet ready rooms make the big move much easier.
If you're looking for a pet-friendly rental, then you have a long and weary journey ahead of you. Most apartments don't allow pets, especially dogs. Though it may be possible to peruse the local classifieds for pet-friendly rentals, don't hold your breath. It's a tough world for dogs up here in New Hampshire.
So, that's about all you need to know about the renter's life in Keene. Enjoy!
