What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Whitefish

I like where we live because people leave me alone. I don't have to deal with many others but out neighbors, although not close, are pleasant.

I appreciate that all of the houses resemble in style but are all different. I appreciate the woods surrounding our neighborhood. We are close to downtown with shopping and restaurants.

I like how there's not so much people around and we live in the woods away from everyone. However there's nobody around

I love that we can walk around with the dogs without much traffic. Most homes have porches so we can wave at neighbors as we walk by. Mostly, we walk to where we can see the lake.
