My significant other and I are moving from Pueblo to Georgia with my family in a couple weeks - but we're coming back to Colorado a couple months after that to live permanently again. We're looking for a "Mountain Town" to live in, since we enjoy nature and hiking so much.

Is it impossible to find a town such as this that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to live in? It's only the two of us, and we only need a 2 bedroom cabin or house at the most. (No apartments.)

Might be helpful if you state how much you're willing to pay to buy or rent.

We don't have a set price, but we're not willing to pay over $800.00 if we're renting a small 1-2 bedroom cabin.

I'm just asking if there's a mountain town that's not ridiculously expensive. We cannot afford $2000.00 a month.

You should probably just look around on Craigslist.

You don't mention whether or not you need jobs or what you can do for a living.

But if a local income isn't high on your priorities, then you might consider some of the mountain towns where the local economy is a bit depressed. Everywhere from Leadville to down in the South Central mountain towns of Colorado where tourism and second homes aren't quite so prevalent and driving the economy.

if you're willing to live in Western Colorado there's a small town called Collbran where the prices haven't caught up with the other mountain towns in Colorado.
