Yeah, but - 10/24/2018
First of all, let me head off some of the arguments that usually accompany critical reviews: the people who live here are for the most part, warm, welcoming, friendly and nice. The housing is, indeed, affordable and, yes, there is a small-town feel here and it is easy to get around town. Yes, there are plenty of things to do here if you hunt, fish or boat. Yes, there are a lot of churches and healthcare is, I believe, above average for a town of this size. Yes, this is a decent town to raise a family in and there is little-to-no violent crime. Yes, the air is clean and the the stars at night are bright (certainly not as big and bright as those deep in the heart of Texas). Lol I have lived in Mountain Home for over 4 1/2 years; before that I lived in The Woodlands, TX; Houston, TX; Billings, MT; Nacogdoches, TX; Denver, CO andGrand Junction, CO. Mountain Home has some nice things to offer some as I noted, BUT it also has many negatives. If you want diversity, keep looking. If you want Read More

Great, relaxing place to live - 7/10/2018
Great, relaxing small town, but still has everything you need. Meet friends at church, enjoy the outdoors and have a good time getting everywhere in town quickly with no traffic. Great for retirees or Read More

Mountain Home Economy - 5/1/2016
The economy here is getting worse. In the 10+ years I have lived here, I have been seeing a degradation of employment opportunities, houses sitting on the market longer, and the degradation of the infrastructure (roads, park up keep, ect). New business has come in, but this offer, at best, minimum wage jobs, and mostly, from what I see and hear, part time so health benefits are not available. And the hospital where I work, is not investing into technology, the building itself, in my view, is in desperate need of renovation(s) all over. I am now looking to leave the city for better Read More

Poor opportunities - 4/9/2016
I've lived her most of my life, have a BS degree, and had to go and get a certificate in CNA in order to get a paying job.

VERY little employment opportunity Read More

Looking for a fresh start - 11/6/2012
As a 21 year old single man with a personal training business and an extreme passion for the outdoors, do you think I would thrive in Mt Home? I heard about it from outdoor life magazine and would like to go somewhere to build my business and be surrounded with big trout and lots of hunting and good people.I have a fine dining serving, fishing guide background. I am from central Oregon which is thriving in the summer because of tourism, but not so much in the winter and have always wanted to see the true lifestyle of the southern Read More

A little bit of paradise - 2/13/2010
We live between 2 lakes, the Norfork, and Bull Shoals. There are 3 rivers in Baxter County, which are world renowned for trout fishing.
A lot of retired people here. There is very little industry, so consequently very low paying jobs. A lot of low income. Property values are coming down, but still high.
The weather is nice, we have beautiful springs and falls. It gets a little too cold in the winter for us, and a little too hot in July and Read More

Welcome to Mayberry ! - 1/9/2010
I am not a "retireee" we moved here 20 years ago from Chicago and continue to find Mountain Home a step back in time..I saw the negative review and everyone has a right to their own opinion. No matter where you live or where you go , it is up to YOU to enjoy your life..this town has little transportation, nightlife, shopping etc..the people however are WONDERFUL!
As I watch the aweful news on TV, I feel soo lucky to have found this place so long ago..We raised 6 children here and never plan to move ever..dont move here if you dont think you could live in "Mayberry"'s a town where for a change, you do Read More

The Worst LIttle Pit - 9/16/2009
I regret having moved to Mountain Home more than any other thing I have done in my entire life. The people here, the tourists who came here and then never left, are the rudest people I have ever met. They are snobs, religious zealouts, racists and don't know how to interact with anyone who is not a white racist. I have been mistreated by these people from the moment I set foot on the soil. And because part of what they do here is oppress people who are not white and racist, people who move here find it hard to escape, because they find it impossible to find a job. As for the cost of living, it has gone up and up and up, to the point where I can't even afford to feed my kids. I don't know who put the "facts" on here, but the cost of living is horrible. My husband is from here originally, and it was a nice place a long time ago, but these northern invaders have completely ruined it. They moved here because they are racists, to get away from anyone different from themselves and Read More

Affordable Retirement at its best - 7/4/2009
Some of the best catfish, bass, trout,fishing in the country and some of the best hunting for just about all types of hunters. Beautiful rivers, two great lakes. One of the top volunteer states in the country. Because this is my primary home, my property taxes are $100.00 a year. My vehicle registration is $25.00 each for my cars. Stop by for a mini-vacation if you wish. Abundant rolling hills covered with oaks, maple, pine, dogwood, redbud and others. Fall is briliant, the eagles spectacular. A real surprise for me
and a real joy. 30 kinds of bird in our 3.5 acre home, white tail families, on and Read More

Mountain Home Is A Great Place To Live - 12/31/2008
I moved to the Mountain Home area in 1979 from the Chicago area with my husband and my son. In the last 30 years I have started and sold a couple of businesses, and I'm now a real estate broker/co-owner of a real estate office. Life has been good in Mountain Home. My favorite thing about the area is the wonderful weather. We have truly 4 seasons, each lasting about 3 months. And winter is very mild compared to the Chicago area. If anyone has any questions about the area, it would be my pleasure to answer.
