What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Elizabethtown

This is a residential area. There are no bars, restaurants or businesses nearby. However, we are very close to town and can easily go and do what we need to do. Four cities are within easy driving distances.

The small downtown area with unique shops and restaurants. Kids can run and play without worrying. The seasonal decorations are super cute

Quiet with indoor walking to and from the dining areas. Private mailing address with central location for package dropoff.

I live in an average place. Personally, I think it's OK! There is a busy traffic downstairs. There is a vegetable market near the downstairs, and there are people who buy breakfast! The reason I like it is that I feel at home, and I feel very comfortable living in my heart! Will not compare with others, will not compare with others!

We are a tight knit group. Pizza place right around the corner. Woods for the kids to explore in. And great for riding bikes

I love that we have small Woodlands behind our home and farmlands. There are walking trails less than a mile away.
