I was wondering what it is like between South of Ashland and the West Virginia State Line? That is the area we are thinking to moving to in the Spring. City life is not for us, we like to live outside the city limits. We are looking for a house with 3 bedrooms or more and with 3 or more acres of land. Is there places like that around?

Thank you so much for your time and help,

Well I live in Pikeville about 20 minutes from Williamson , WV. You can find places like that probley down Lower Johns Creek. Its nice with good schools and lots of mountains, creeks, some good food. There is great entertainment and things of that nature. We got about anything you would need and maby even more if you are wanting to slow it down a bit and live a slower paced life. Good luck to you..

I want to help answer your question, but I'm not quite understanding your question... Ashland sits right on the Ohio river... on the other side of the river is West Virginia.
If you go South of Ashland... you have Catlettsburg, KY.. which is almost like a suburb of Ashland.. then I-64, then below that you have places like Louisa, KY then Paintsville, Pikeville, etc.

Anywhere that I've mentioned is going to be good for you if you like the mountains and a slower paced lifestyle! People are friendly, cost of living is very cheap (although Pikeville has a bit higher pricing I believe). It's beautiful country all through that region. The only complaint I've ever heard of people who reside there (around Louisa) is the coal trucks running up and down the highway lumber slowly along or zip along. Complaints either way..

If you are looking for a place in these areas, you might need to also live close enough for a commute to jobs?? If so, closer to Ashland, or Pikeville, or even Paintsville might be areas better suited for more jobs... all depends on your circumstances! 3 bdrm houses should be plentiful in most of these places listed..

Hope any of this information helps you, and good luck!
