My wife and I like the idea of Fayetteville but don't want to live in Fayetteville. My Brother said Prairie Grove, does anyone one know of and area that is within driving distance to Fayetteville but has some nice mountain areas for homes?

In Farmington and PG, you will have mountain views from a lot of the homes. If you're wanting to live IN the hills, then maybe the southern outskirts of those two towns would have something for you.

West Fork is in the hills, but it is really small. Winslow is basically rural, and "up in the hills".

If you're wanting more of a subdivision vibe, Goshen is out east, Fayetteville school district, and some mountain views, but not as good of views as PG & Farmington.

There are some rural subdivision out west of Fayetteville in the Wedington Lake area.

How far out of Fayetteville do you want to live?

Here's a video showing the topography SW of Fayetteville. This is a video taken during the construction of Rupple Rd through West Fayetteville a year ago. When the drone gets to the first roundabout and turns south, that is the area of Farmington and PG. That's the landscape you see out there.

We can be 25 miles or so. We can also move up to Springdale or Bentonville areas also.

I wouldn't recommend Springdale, if being in the mountains or near mountain views is what you seek. You might find some good properties that meet that description nearer to Siloam Springs, or far west of Fayetteville out near Wedington. Far western Fayetteville is in the Farmington School District, the areas around Double Springs Rd.

The topography plateaus a bit once you get up to Springdale, and it isn't as "mountainous". The exceptions being the east side of Rogers nearer to Beaver Lake, and the north side of Bentonville into Bella Vista.

Fayetteville is definitely "in the hills". There are some subdivisions on the far south side of Fayetteville that definitely do not feel like they are "in town" The country club area and the Stonebridge areas, in particular.

I should add that if Springdale is being considered, the very, extreme far eastern part of the city, nears the tail end of Beaver Lake/White River is hilly and pretty. That's where you start getting back into the Ozarks. Hindsville and that area might be a bit far out, but that is definitely getting back into the hills.
