To the OP:

If you are looking for a house to rent in Clemmons, check the WS newspaper online, journalnow.com. If the ad says the house is in Clemmons, then it will be Clemmons proper. If the ad says North Davidson, then it means in northern Davidson County--could be a Clemmons, WS, or Lexington address. (Within 5 miles of me are all 3 addresses and I am just inside the county line.) If you look at the rent ads, you may see a rental agency advertising a house and I would give them a call and see if they can help you find a house. Some realtors may know of a house here or there, but generally it is just by word of mouth.

West Forsyth would be a good high school with good academics and a swim team. The Clemmons YMCA is right off the 'main drag'. There are swim teams through the Y that travel. I know there is a riding/boarding stable in Lewisville for your girls to ride horses. My friend has worked there for years. She also teaches riding and they travel some for competitions. Whew, you sound busy! Good luck!
Yes I am busy, but it will be worth the while. Thanks for the info on the horse stable and all. I believe I am looking into the right area for us, I just need a house to rent for a few months. it is not that easy to find! I will be working for the WS school district so I can't go as far as Davidson county I need to stay closer to WS. I will check the resources you mentioned, thank you

Davidson county info was for clarification. Didn't think you were wanting DC at all.

Default Live near Clemmons

Hi,

I live in the small community of Arcadia. It is an EXCELLENT place to live. We have a great elementary school and high school. This part of Clemmons IS in Davidson County with MUCH lower taxes than Forsyth. I also have an 8 year old daughter and a 14 year old son. The North Davidson County schools are crowded but the teachers are great. Also, Friedberg elementary was voted the NC school of technology in 2005.

Boy this is hard to find an area that you won't regret. Coming from Cali with our abnormal tax rate I don't believe I could be shocked, never know though. Lower taxes sound great. I will do a search and check it out. I just don't want to commute too far. Having three kids doesn't allow much leway. Any info is helpful, we are on our way in two weeks, ahhh.

Todd, I know there are properties in N Davidson that have barns or stables. Depending where in Forsyth you will be working, your time for traveling should be 30 minutes or less.

Default wish I had more time

I was on other posts and people are putting down NC as a whole. Some said the education system is bad. It's hard for me to believe coming from Cali. One reason I wanted to move to NC was for the education, but with the inflex I hope I'm not in for another Cali situation!!!!

I will have a few days after we get to WS to look around. I will look into Davidson and the commute. Do you know of any rentals in Arcadia?

We live in Arcadia and just moved here from CA last summer. My husband works for Forsyth school district and it takes him 12 minutes to get to his school. It really depends on where you will be working. There are parts of Winston-Salem out near Reynolda that will be at least a 30 minute drive. We have noticed driving is different out here. The length of time doesn't have to do with traffic, but more with stop lights and 2 lane roads. There can be congestion (which is still VERY mild by CA standards) in town with long stop lights. Otherwise, I would say it would probably take you about an average of 25 minutes to get anywhere from Arcadia.

The people who put down NC education tend to be from the New England states where they are use to top notch schools. In CA we are use to bottom notch schools and NC is probably medium notch schools....I remember reading some list a few years ago that had CT or MA as number 1, CA near 47 or something like that and NC at around 25th in the nation.

I have seen rental signs every so often on houses out in Arcadia, but I am not sure of the main rental agency. I know I see Baldwin rental company listed on a lot of the places in Winston-Salem.
