I'm interviewing with a company that has an office in Lakeview.

My first choice would be KFalls but from the searchs I've done Lakeview might be an alternative if nothing is available in KFalls.

So anyone live there? I'd like to know about the "horsey" folk and grocery stores ect. Any other info would be great.

Default Lakeview?

You do not say from how far east you are returning from. Lots of Cowboys, ranchers, farmers and lumberjacks here, no fancy botiques, shopping malls, theator, or the like though.
I am currently trying to locate a steel fabrication business in Lakeview for a friend of mine. It is an affordable place to live, very affordable for small business, and very friendly towards small businesses.
I do not know why you would prefer Klamath Falls over Lakeview though. Lakeview does not have enough traffic to justify a traffic light or Wal-Mart. Lakeview does have a grocery store, a couple of gas stations, and friendly people.
If by "horsey folks" you mean people who have expensive show animals, I don't know. There are a lot of working horses in Lake County though, they might even end up on the dinner table when they're too old to work. Same with dogs, no AKA dog shows, just working dogs. The people too are working, not show, people. If this is what you seek, a friendly, hard working community, this is the place for you.

I am originally from Or, went to college in Bend over 30 years ago when it was a little cow town.

I did show my horses at one time but now I'm into trail riding and I'll actually be looking for a riding mule. I do have two dogs a Jack Russell and a Corgi...both purebreeds but both rescues.

My idea of "shoping" is a feed store, tack shop, tractor store or hardware store...LOL I'm not into malls, fancy over priced eatories, ect.

My weekends consist of farm chores and riding. A great sat night is grilling some fresh fish or chicken and watching a rented DVD. I get excited about the latest and greatest in pasture maitenance, feed for horses ect.

I do want to make sure there's a good equine vet and Doc for me as I do have health issues at my age

I currently live in a little town in NE GA, so I'm into the rural life.

And I have actually been thru Lakeview, but it was many years ago, so I was trying to find out what it is like currently.

I do shop at Wal-mart and other big box stores for their convient one stop shoping, the closest one to me right now is about 25 miles away. I am used to not having a mini-mart at every corner. Hope this helps

I forgot to tell you I am of native american heritage and I'm tired of living without the culture around me. It is non-existant here in GA. That is why KFalls is atractive to me and I would like to be near an indigenous population.

Default KF's

Klamath Falls is a nice little town. I think the crime is a little high, but I have land over there--actually out in Beatty--and have considered doing something with it. I used to work there and never had problems. I used to head that direction for fishing/hunting with my ex and friends. I really do miss the fish

Default Lakeview

If you were thru Lakeview many years back, and you are wondering what it is like now, it's still the same, minus some of the mills, and maybe some of the people. I believe you will find this town will suit your lifestyle to a "T". There are a couple doctors, a couple dentists, and a very good local hospital There are very good medical facilities and specialists 180 miles away in Bend, 3 hrs. by car, 45 minute by air if need is urgent.
I have been helping a friend locat a business in Lakeview and will be relocating there to start-up and run the shop for him. You will enjoy the friendlieness of the local government and how easy it is to work with them. Imagine, government officials that actually work for you, rather than against you! Maybe I had better check to see if Lakeview is still a part of the United States.
You will find Lakeview to be affordable and friendly, and believe you would very much enjoy living there, I know I am looking forward to it.

I've been reading Lakeview Threads - everyone is telling it like it is - one way or another. If you have a nice warm coat, ear muffs, gloves and 'good' winter boots with "snow studs" on them :-) you can survive the winter. We have a great ski hill and lots of beautiful winter cross country and snowmobile terrain. We are friendly - everyone waves and says "hello" (unless they are a new-comer from So.Cal. and haven't caught on yet) (Many of my friends have moved here from Southern Cal - it's just a local "joke" ) In summer there is so much outdoors stuff to do you won't have time to do it all! We having winning sports teams, good schools, a couple generous scholarships for 4 yr high school students who have had good grades - not necessarily perfect, but good. We are growing - slowly, but surely. You won't need "fancy-schmancy" clothes or designer purses or shoes (no one would know the difference). UPS is great. Going to Klamath Falls is a nice family outing. Reno, Bend, Medford, are all within 4 hours. Portland, SanFranciso, Eugene and the Oregon Coast are all within a day's drive. We are small town people and we like it that way .......... so don't come to 'town' thinking you are going to change it. After all, if you choose to move here and away from 'there', why would you want to change what's already best. Welcome - stop by the Westside Store when you are out enjoying the country - they'll treat you right.
