What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Barnesville

My neighborhood is unique to its history. The houses are very old. My favorite local businesses are those downtown which is about 10 minutes drive.

Good restaurants are less than a mile away and it's a 20 minute drive to the beach. There is a great market close by too.

Close to stores and eating facilities. There stores and a library within walking distance and trees line the walkway. I lile that there are playgrounds for kils and adults.

Other than the main high way near me, the neighbor hood is good and there is lots of restrants and store around to walk or ride a bike to. Have a nice down town with lots of stores, coffee shops and bars and restrants and water front with a piere

I adore my neighbors. Nearly all of the neighbors on my block know each other. I work from home, and sometimes a neighbor will text to ask me to grab a package for them if they won't be home for a while or if they are out of town.
