I have been reading this website for some time now. I am looking to retire early and love the sounds of Tennessee. I would love the slower pace and friendy people.

After I sell my home here in Ma. I will only have enough to get a moble home on at least 5 acres and pay cash.

My husband is disabled and we have a 10 year old.

I am looking at middle Tennessee and I have seen mobile homes with acres in small towns, such as Waverly, Mcewen, Lyles, Fayetteville, Pulaski and Linden, to name a few.

I have not seen alot of info on these towns. I would appreciate any info.

Thanks......................Kat

Of those towns you mentioned, I like Waverly and Linden the most, but only because of their location near the beautiful Tennessee River. Waverly isn't too far off of I-40 and is a little over an hour west of Nashville.

Fayetteville is probably the largest of the towns you mentioned and is growing the fastest. It's only about 20-30 minutes from Huntsville, Alabama, so quite a few people are choosing to live in Fayetteville and commute to Huntsville.

I'm not sure what other kind of information you're looking for. You can get online and see what kinds of stores and churches are in those towns as well as the school report cards for those school systems.

Best of luck with your choice. I honestly think that those are all nice little towns, so I don't think any of them is necessarily better than the others.

Go to the CD main site and enter the city. I didn't find anything on Lyles, but there are pictures of some of these areas -- looks so peaceful!

Lyles isn't really a town, it's more like a community. I don't know whether it's incorporated as a town or not; if it is, it's just for political reasons. It's fairly rural out in that area.

Yes. Housing prices are very high in Mass. And yes, Tennessee prices are higher than most people think, but much lower than Mass.
