So I had been focusing a lot on Texas but with some insight, recommendations and the fact I don't have family there, I'm open to broaden my search. I live in so cal. My kids are young adults but still live with me. I'm an esthetician so would need to have a decent drive near upscale spa and shopping areas. My dream? A lake house affordable, low crime. Easy drive (don't like the winding roads like to big bear or lake arrowhead). Does anything like this exist or am I just a dreamer? I don't get to travel out much so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do you have any preferences in terms of location?

This would help to know, because realistically there are a ton of lakes that could be great

Default Distance

How far do you think you could drive or (if possible) fly to go to a lake house?

Also, would you prefer remote rural or more suburban settings?

He mentioned he doesn't like the long/winding roads that he currently deals with, so I'm ussuming rural would be a no go.

Correct, no winding roads. If anything closer to California, if not in California. I'm pretty much open to almost anything though once I narrow down the most ideal location I will go check out. Would prefer warmer locations rather than real snowy. Suburban settings will probably be more ideal but wouldn't mind checking out a rural setting if it meets the criteria I mentioned.

What would you deem "affordable"? That would help considerably.
