Any recommendations on any great little river or lake towns located in the Northeast/Mid Atlantic region? Low pollution, rural, four seasons, close to state or national forests, and not insane property taxes.

warren, pa fits your criteria, except possibly for low pollution. I'm not sure if there's much pollution there or not. It is located along the Allegheny river in northwestern pa. It's very rural and is near the allegheny national forest.

Thanks. I did some research and the Allegheny, Clarion, and Susquehanna areas look good.

OP, are you retiring or looking for a vacation home? You need to know that the areas you are looking at have had high unemployment/low wages since the 1980's.

It's low pollution if you live away from the big oil refinery. If you are very sensitive to pollution I probably wouldn't live right in Warren, because depending on which way the wind is blowing, you can smell the refinery. There are areas nearby that would be fine though.

Ok, Warren is out because of the refinery. But there are plenty of other places. And sorry, I have no interest in NC. I have a minimalistic lifestyle, so work is a necessity but not sweating it.
