Well, according to me, this is a beautiful place to work and live. You can be sitting on the porch and enjoying a cup of coffee at an isolated cabin within 30 to 45 minutes of Fayetteville. There are beautiful sites, great restaurants, excellent places to get back to nature with your family and friends, enjoy a fire and a good book, pick up a few fleas at an antique stop that is an easy drive from just about anywhere.
Come visit and you just might end up staying for a spell!
