We would highly recommend Dillon, MT! Check it out. We bought our house on an acre almost two years ago. We came from a retirement community in Green Valley, AZ but found we much prefer the cooler climate, more land, and wide open spaces. The people are very friendly in Dillon. We've seen not only unlocked cars but also unlocked and running parked in front of the Safeway store. There isn't a lot of shopping but you will find a good infrastructure including groceries, gas, restaurants, hospital, even a University. We found Dillon through ****.com
Now we are thinking of selling our house and buying a little more than one acre in Dillon.
Good luck in your search.
Lynne

Default Oh, I thought you wanted Central Montana

[quote=dcconey;353863]My husband and I are thinking about retirement in Montana, and have visited every year for the past 4 years.
We are looking for a very small town, gotta have tree's/mountains/quiet
I don't like shopping so convience is not important. QUOTE]

I thought you wanted inexpensive Central Montana property. When was the last time you've been through Troy/Yaak? Yes, a beautiful area MORE beautiful 10 years ago. Its almost sad what has taken place up there. Hmmm, yes, Lincoln county is beautiful. From the description of what you are looking to find that area can not be beat.

I can not guarantee that you can continue your bad habits up there. Since the yokel wrote all about Yaak country in the New Yorker or whatever books he wrote....it has been discovered by every Tom Dick and Henry. It once was pristine with very little congestion.

I was up there two years ago and could not believe what had taken place in such a short time span....DEVELOPERS !!! Sad Before you could have found an old cabin or a local selling a bit of his ground. Now there are pristine yellow pine log cabins, so cutely placed on their 5 acre plot with COVENANTS and river access only to those who have purchased the parcel in the development.

The bunny rabbits and the bears don't even know which way to turn now. Yes, it is a very lovely part of Montana ...

If you are of retirement age and wanting to be away from services, I would think about this a little more, services also include things like fire and ambulance. Unless you want to move again, I would keep in mind that as you get older, you may need an ambulance to come to your house and you may need them to get their pretty quick. Many people move in and then away again when their health starts to fail after lifeflight has picked them up a few times. They say it takes about 30-45 minutes for the ambulance to get to your location out of town and that much to get back, too many people forget this when they move out here. It is much more than shopping.

Ah, beautiful Dillon! I'm a New England boy, but currently living in the south.. however I have lived as far west as North Dakota.

That being said, I've seen pictures of Dillon and even applied for a job there (I'm a radio broadcaster).. it's absolutely BEAUITFUL in Dillon!

The whole darn state of Montana is absolutely beautiful and I don't think it makes any difference about whether this town or that town is liberal or conservative or not. All the small towns are still like Mayberry l but all areas are developing very fast. If you like the old Montana well guess what? It's going bye bye fast. I live in a very small funky eclectic hot springs resort town am I'm selling my house to buy a place closer to the big muddy and to be closer to big shopping and more eateries. A person could sell a house in Baltamore and with the money buy four houses and a new motorhome up on the highline !

Default been thinkin' bout' Montana for a long time now.

Hi:

My hubby and I have been thinking about checking out Montana for a while now. We currently live in SW New Mexico ( a small town at least 2-3 hours from any major city) and have our home on the market to sell. We want to move, but are unsure of where to go next. We have looked at Roundup-Billings area because the housing prices seem to be very reasonable. You can get alot for your money there it seems. Know anything about the area?? I am in the healthcare field and am currently on assignment till Jan in Tucson, AZ. So, I thought as a healthcare traveler would be a good way to check it all out. When is a good time to visit the state? Also, any folks out there reading this that live in Montana can you tell me about some of the places there? We would like to be close to a bigger city like Billings, but not live right in town. We have gotten to use to the privacy that living out of town offers on 12 acres. Any places with privacy, low cost of living, reasonable housing prices, and plenty of the things that you need to survive?? I am willing to commute at least 1/2 to get to work.

I just now found this site so you may already have found your special place. Take a look at Sanders County, milder winters & lots for sale e.g my place. Check out Realty Northwest.
