What Renters Like and Dislike About Fairmont

That it's quiet. We have an amazinggggggggggggg view and 111111111111111there are lots of kids. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My neighborhood is quiet. It is not busy but we have all the stores and others things we need to get things done right in the area. It is safe and a good place to be.

we have woods behind our house which can be used for privacy. there isnt anything unique about my neighborhood, there really arent very many things to do here.

There is nothing inquire about this area. It's an older area with no restaurants really we just have a bar.
