What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Montpelier

Grocery stores, Walmart, the hospital, the mall, etc. are a short distance away if you feel comfortable walking directly in the highway or crossing a busy intersection. The bus can be called to stop by, and they're debating adding back a bus route where my building is a regular stop to carry people to and from the greater downtown area.

Great local restaurants, my favorites are Pho Capital and The Hippie Chickpea. This town is small and everything is in walking distance.

rural housing, our neighbors are nice, we all have gardens in the summer, retired - we go out to lunch a few times a week, shopping. Get back to traveling day trips to cities and parks, etc

We are in a great location. We are close to town and highways and grocery stores yet the neighborhood is quiet and secluded.

the land out here is beautiful and the quality of life is unparalleled. The lifestyle is relaxed and and quiet.
