Retirement in Mountain Home - 5/9/2010
I was stationed at the base in the late 60s. I am sure many things have changed. Don't remember much so can anyone tell me about bugs (mosquitoes), wind, heat, cold and cost of living other than what has been posted so far. How about the people? Friendly, welcoming? or "Welcome to Mountain Home now go somewhere else to live"? Considering Mountain Home for retirement.  Read More

Great Place to Live - 12/16/2009
We have lived here since 1991 and love it... the wind can be brutal in the spring, summers are hot and dry, and the winters can be cold and snowy and we love it...
Cost of living is less than Boise and crime is very low...Read More

Best things about Mountain Home - 7/12/2008
Mountain Home is a comfortable, affordable and safe place to live, with an easy going outlook; a small town with easy access to the freeway and Boise Idaho just 40 miles away. The town is relatively small, with a population of around 11,000. With Mountain Home AFB 10 miles away, the town's support of the military is very strong. In fact, every fall we have an Air Force Appreciation Day, with a parade and picnic. Mountain Home residents also enjoy access to many outdoor recreation areas, making camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, skiing (both water and snow) frequently enjoyed pastimes. Housing and living expenses are very affordable. You can work in town, out at the base, or commute to Boise for your job. The Van Pool allows an affordable commuting alternative for those considering work in Boise, and Mountain Home supports a commuter van for those who travel to the base to work. As for weather, the word is 'SUNSHINE'! While we experience cold and snow in the winter, Read More

Mountain Home - 1/13/2008
Wow, Can't believe I'm the first one to review this city considering it's about 10 min from a military base named the same. Lots of people must be stationed here or have been. Mountain home is a small town of about 11,000 people. It has a wonderful relationship with the military base. They have a great parade veterans day and really show their appreciation for the military. I have to admit there isn't a lot to do here. I am from Freeland, Michigan which is another small town and there wasn't anything to do there growing up either. I've found that to be the case with small towns. It does have a pool, coffee shops, library, parks, and golf course. It also has car dealerships, eye dr's, dentists, spas, grocery stores, clinics, small hospital, gas stations, etc.. It is in the desert so it's pretty flat and lots of cows and sagebrush. I've also noticed on base a lot of grouse and rabbits. On the highway you can see falcons flying overhead. I've also seen an occasional coyote and some Read More
