We're looking at moving to the area in June and need to find a house to rent somewhere between Mason and northern Cincinnati. We're 30-somethings with a 4 yr old who will be attending one of the Montessori schools near Mason. We've been living near downtown Charlottesville, VA for several years and love it - progressive, intelligent, historical, great food, wine, music...a little pretentious but also has good grounded/earthy population and lots happening (and we're moving why?) Maybe we should look closer to Cincinnati? Thanks for any input!

Mason's average family income is a little more than two times that of Charlottesville according to City Data so the upscale and pretentious part shouldn't be an issue, but as to progressive, I think you will have to take a reduction in that department.

Unhappy Northern Cincy

We actually would like to live somewhere in between Mason and Northern Cincy. I get the feeling that we'd fit in closer to the city but we don't want to be too far from the south Mason area. Any suggestions? Montgomery?

That's a really tough call, because Mason is pretty far out in the 'burbs.

The stereotypical answer for your wish list would be Hyde Park, Oakley, Mount Lookout, and Clifton. But you'd be so far away from Mason it defeats the purpose of living in a vibrant urban type community. You'd still be in your car all day.

Montgomery might be a solid compromise, if it's in your price range. It has a cute little downtown strip, and the homes are a bit older (although not historical). It's still the suburbs, so I doubt you'll find what you had in Charlottesville. But it sounds like Montgomery would be better for you than Mason.

Mason is a nice area and very safe, away from city crime.

But it sounds like you're looking for areas like Hyde Park as mentioned before.
