I've definitely considered the PNW- it is really beautiful there. I have reservations about all the rain and grey days affecting my mental health. I also really want four seasons. Charlottesville lacks a bit of snow in winter, but it still gets some (15 inches) and has a gorgeous fall and spring. In PNW do you get fall foliage? Any real snow?

Yes Asheville is a place we considered and visited. My wife was not having it. Way too "hippy" for her.

There are other areas nearby that are more conservative if she isn't able to handle the diversity of Asheville. Check out Waynesville to the west (2700 ft elevation) or to the north in Boone or Blowing Rock which are above 3000 ft.
