Review of Mountain Home, Idaho

Best things about Mountain Home
Star Rating - 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, and hot summers, our location in a semi-arid climate ensures that most days will be full of sunlight. Whether you're considering moving here for a few years, or retiring here, Mountain Home offers a relaxing lifestyle.
