Default Is Painesville area too far to drive

I am moving to the Cleveland area next Spring as part of a job promotion and will be working on Lakeside Avenue and in researching homes, I like the Painesville, Thompson, Montville area. You seem to be able to get a good size house with a lot of land.

My question is whether or not that location is too far to commute? I am an early arriver so I'd generally be on the road by 6:15am. My wife homeschools our kids so school districts are not a deciding factor.

Thanks for any advice.

Assuming you mean Painesville Twp, as opposed to the City of Painesville, you are looking at about a 40 mile commute. Leaving early will limit to 40+ minutes, unless it is snowing. Painesville Twp. and the other communities you mention are pretty much in the snow belt. The snow belt gets the brunt of snow due to its location in relation to Lake Erie. When near eastern suburbs get 4 inches of snow, the snow belt can expect 12"+.

Lots of people make the commute. I used to live in eastern Lake County and took the LakeTran commuter bus downtown. Even for bad traffic, Cleveland in general is a bunny.

Good luck.

Thompson and Montville are alot further east of Cleveland than Painesville is. As far as land goes I think you will be better off in Thompson or Montville. Painesville Twp. housing prices are comparable to Mentor. Houses in Painesville city are on postage stamp size lots.

I live in Madison, which is close to Thompson. It takes at least 45 minutes to get to downtown Cleveland and that is on a clear day. There isn't many homes in Thompson for sale because it is a small area. It just depends on what you want.

Good luck.
