Sutton-Alpine, AKWe love it
We acquired our homesite 1985, built a log cabin/house and permanently moved there in 2000. Left in 2010 (in our 70's) as the cold became a problem, but still love it and miss that beautiful area. 20 miles from the closest town with medical, grocery, Borough offices and etc. We had well water and electricity after the first few years. Moose passing through the yard and an occasional grizzly. If you love the downtown city life it would be too rural for you, but if you like the wilderness, you would love being there. Sutton has a small grocery/restaurant, Elementary school, State prison 10 miles away, Community church, an old folks home that is only a few years old and a fine new Library.
re: comfort index ??? - 5/17/2008
You must be a youngster. I am on the other side to that scale. What I thought was comfortable once is very painful now with arthritis. I was comfortable in 97116 and 99674-except in my late 60's the cold became a problem. I have escaped that in 28792 only to find out the humidity here is much more of a problem than the cold was. I am counting on this site to help me find the right place for me, an otherwise healthy 73 year old.
Hendersonville, NCBeautiful place but
We moved here to escape the cold of 99764. It has the most beautiful spring and fall, but if you have arthritis problems this is not the place for you. People here are friendly, I love the street dances and quaint downtown, that has just been renewed.
