I think your best option would be to drive down to Elizabethtown and search for rentals.

We are BRACcies to E-Town and having the same frustration. The biggest source of rentals we have is only open to military or Govt employees.

Not much. Just curious...why Etown? It is a nice town and all, but being from Chicago, it may not be the suburb type lifestyle you may want.

You stated in an earlier post that Etown was 30 minutes to Louisville. Well, that is not the case at all. If you speed, you can make it in 40-45 minutes. During, rush hour, the commute can be over an hour to downtown Louisville. Downtown Louisville to Etown is further than downtown Chicago to Aurora, but since Louisville metro is about 1/7th the size of Chicago metro, there is a lot of country between Louisville's immediate south suburbs like Shepherdsville, and Etown.

That said, Etown is certainly worth checking out, and these are beautiful spanking 3 bedroom new rentals in a nice area for cheaper than a studio apartment in downtown Chicago:

If you do enjoy the exurban lifestyle, I would suggest looking at Louisville's Northeast suburbs and exurbs, like La Grange. This is a very quaint, small town, although the county is much more affluent than Etown's county with a better school system. It is also closer to the culture and shopping of Louisville.

I'm just wondering, what are you referring to? I'm not aware of any private rentals in E-town limited to only military and civilian workers. This wouldn't be right.

As far as finding a place to stay, outlaw79 you really need to come down here. There isn't much to find online, but there are plenty of places for rent in your price range, that meet your needs. You may have to contact a Realtor and see if they have rentals and you can always contact the Fort Knox Housing Service Office too. You can contact them at 502-624-3548/5824, fax 502-624-4089.
Good Luck

Actually, i was referring to a private rental service website called ahrn.com. I said they were only open to military/govt employees because that is one of the requirements on the site.

Outlaw, BRACcie means someone who is relocating due to BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure). We're being relocated from Northern VA. Some are also coming from Indianapolis and St. Louis. Stx12499 is right about the hour commute to Downtown Louisville from E-town, mind you that is mostly mileage as opposed to traffic such as Chicago or Northern VA. The 30 mintues you were referring to would take you from E-town to the Pleasure Ridge Park and Southwestern areas of Louisville.

Ok when I went to elizabethtown to get married people were nice it seemed big,yet small the ride wasnt horrible to louisville or chicago. What I dont like is maybe that it might be to small and country where people grew up toghter and look at me as a somebody from the north and not be nice. I had this already happen an hour south of Chicago out by Bradley area a town by there I wont mention. In short Etown just kinda pulled us in I have another post maybe i should look at lville to.. I need 4br at 155 k I know thats hard to find,and if mine dont sell than I need a rental. Thats why I come here advice I guess
