What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Watertown

i like the closeness of the schools. i like the safeness of the houses. i also like the kindness of other families.

I like how close it is to stores, it is very easy to get items if needed. I also like how the houses look they aren't too old but aren't too new.

. I like that is it quieter out here then all the way in town. It's it own small community. We are close to the lake and golf courses.
