What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bear Creek Asheville

There are plenty of beautiful views. Lots of local businesses and restaurants. Quite a few nearby parks. Lots of wooded areas great for hiking.

I live in an area with a couple of parks nearby. It's a drive to get to the restaurants and bars but there are convenience stores and a couple of tiendas a short drive or long walk. I go downtown because there isn't much to do where I live as far as eating out and such.

I like that it's quiet and people look out for neighbors for the most part. I don't like the distance

It has unique and unusal tiny restaurants and stores to check out. We like to go to the blue ridge parkway to explore the mountains.

I like the seclusion. I like the views. I like the wildlife. There's not as much pollution since we're farther away from humans.

My neighborhood is unique because it is surrounded by trees and in the middle of no where but all of the houses and people are nice.
