Correct. If you refer to the information Frank Ettin cited from the BATFE FAQ, it's pretty clear that you are a resident of the second state even if you only go there for weekends.

Example 2.

A is a U.S. citizen and maintains a home in State X and a home in State Y. A resides in State X except for weekends or the summer months of the year and in State Y for the weekends or the summer months of the year. During the time that A actually resides in State X, A is a resident of State X, and during the time that A actually resides in State Y, A is a resident of State Y.
The key here seems to be that you must own your own second home in the second state. Renting a vacation house in Maine for two weeks does not qualify you as a resident of Maine for those two weeks.
