I rent mine through Baldwin Realty in Winston-Salem.(I've been here about a yr now).I'm in Kernersville,and it's a 4 bed,2 1/2 bath for $1075/mo,with most of the amenities you can think of (except for a basement)..2 story,2 car garage,gas heat,gas fireplace,garden tub,walk-in shower,fridge,stove,dw,built-in microwave,garbage disposal,fenced-in backyard w small patio,etc.I can even have my cat here (for a non-refundable pet fee),it's almost brand new,and HOA takes care of all the yardwork.(owner pays the dues).But I think I got a really good deal on it,b/c looking around,there are others the same size that rent for anywhere from $1100-1400 (or so)/ mo for something comparable,and even then,you usually have to mow your own yard.But I confess,I was having a really hard time last yr,and I prayed really hard for something like this to come along for me and my kids,and I think my prayers were answered
This is a really great area,too...very quiet,and all the stores like Lowe's,walmart,target,kohl's,staple's,and almost all the major fast food chains are within a 5 min drive from here.(If you like mexican,you must try don juan's !).there is really no nightlife here though,(unless you count walmart being open 24/7,lol).
As for bigger restaurants,rightoffhand,fire mountain(buffet),outwest steakhouse,denny's are here.
