Default Newtown and other locations for short term housing options

In order to reduce another repeat question, I first tried to search on the forum for information on Newtown, but I couldn't find much. I am looking for short term housing for the summer. I will be working in downtown, but am interested in living in more of a residential/ suburb setting. Not really interested in the University area, and have been considering the Hyde Park/ Blue Ash/ Kenwood area.

However, I recently found a place in Newtown and have really heard nothing of the area. Curious if people have any information on the area. As well, if anyone has any other recommendations on short term housing in the suburb areas I have been mentioning. I really appreciate any help I can get.

Newtown doesn't have any residences, to speak of. They do however have a very little known summer cabin community that is quite cool. Its called Shademoore Park and you will be the only person who knows anything about it if you look into it and get a place. Its very well kept secret and there is probably no advertising for any cottage but there are rentals and they have everything you could want there.

Newtown does have some recently built town homes along 32 and some tucked on the east side of church street. Newtown is a very small village next to the Little Miami River. Mostly small older homes in a range of conditions. It is not "trendy", but it can be charming and more low key than the other areas mentioned. It does have a park (Short Park). Traffic gets conjested at rush hour on 32, and they run quite the speed trap on 32. Also have access to the little Miami Bike trail, public golf course.

Newtown is a nice place. The bike path is right there and except for the massive traffic on 32, it is pretty quiet.

Newtown is a relatively small village nestled next to the Little Miami River flood plain. If you have located a place to live there I would certainly take it, particularly for a short duration. Not much going on in Newtown, but there is plenty not far away.

The place has a web site, which offers only a tantalizing peek. It looks like something straight out of the 1950s Lake Erie "resorts" where my parents used to take me for family vacations. This is a secret, all right!

Very helpful responses. I appreciate your help! I have found an apartment complex there that does short term corporate housing and is just off the 32. Any estimation on how long it would take in morning or evening rush hour to get from Newtown to downtown Cincy? Google maps tells me 16 minutes, but I am guessing it is longer with rush hour.

Thanks!

This is totally a secret. The range of people who live out there in the summer is a cross section of society. A lot of teachers and college prof but even downtown professionals and retired folk. Its unbelievable.

i think in the 25 minute range is reasonable. columbia parkway isn't bad at all, but getting there might take some time.

If you are close to Newtown, it really will be 16 minutes. If you are up by Eastgate, there is traffic trouble getting down to Newtown and the 25 minutes will be more accurate.
