Hello,

Im looking to relocate to a small, quiet town. Id like someplace where I can have privacy, some land, and maybe room for a pool. Safety is a PRIORITY. Id like to be within about an hour of Louisville. Im looking for a house to buy for under 100k, cosmetic and minor repairs are fine but nothing major. A small home, approx. 1200 sq. feet is fine as well. Basically just looking for some room to roam safely in a very affordable area. Id love to be near hiking areas as well. (Bernheim, maybe?) Any ideas? It seems hard to find a town with homes for 100k or less.
Thanks for your help.

Salem / Washington County Indiana has lots of homes under $100k and is near lots of hiking in Jackson-Washington state forest and Clark state forest, one trail is 50 miles long. Hoosier National Forest area west of Corydon Indiana is also a nice rural area. The area around Bernheim Forest in Kentucky is very scenic too and some homes would be within range, homes closest to Ft Knox would hear some explosions that go on at the base.

There's a few for sale for that in E-town. For example:


36 Beech Ct, Elizabethtown, KY 42701 - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - realtor.com®

Parts of Harrison Co. in Southern Indiana will fit your description. Corydon is a great place to look into.

Agree about corydon IN.


I would focus on Shepherdsville, Mt Washington, Taylorsville, and Simpsonville, KY.

If schools are important, you need to look outside La Grange, Buckner, and Crestwood.

I concur on the Taylorsville but also give consideration to multiple small towns in Oldham (outside the Prospect corridor), Westport, Carrolton, or Brandenburg.
