What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Buckhannon

It's close to work. A twenty minute walk and I'm there. It's a peaceful neighborhood I can't wait for my brother to move down here with me..

Nothing is unique about Buckhannon. No favorites here to speak of. I don't go anywhere for leisure. This place is a joke and I can't wait to leave.

I greatly enjoy our towns annual Strawberry Festival held on our Main Street in late May. I enjoy visiting Stone Tower Brews for coffee with my friends and family. I find joy in Main Street; I see families walking down sidewalks with their pets while eating ice cream.

That we only live near our own family that's what's unique. The convenience store you can get drinks and food.
