Made the move 3 years ago and it’s better than I’d imagined. :D

Retiring very soon and will be moving from AZ to the High Country. Can’t wait to be there full-time.

Boone's been on this for at least a decade. It's a place I'd retire to in a heartbeat.

Probably not Boone, but I could see myself retiring in Blowing Rock

Approximately three years for me, real estate prices are better in Ashe and Wilkes Counties (by the way).

Congrats on building enough wealth to retire
after working 15 years (yes, I'm making a ton of assumptions)

I wonder how they square the effects of harsh winters on old bones? Also, isn’t Boone a bit pricey for the average retiree? Also, I require year-round golf.

Maybe this will keep all those folks from retiring in Boone.😉

The wife and I are currently on our search for land in Watauga and Ashe counties. Was a day late twice already on making offers on great deals. We found 20 acres with a stocked trout stream and a small three bedroom farm house listed at $145k. 10 miles outside Boone to the north. All the hunting and fishing I would need and some of it level enough for a garden. Seller accepted an offer the day before we made ours. So the search continues...

I have a place in Todd and will retire in about 10-12 years. I kid my wife, who is 13 years younger than me, she can come and visit on weekends until she can retire.

Would love to retire to the Boone "area" when I retire in about 2.5 years. However, with a special needs 8 year old and an Ex from 3 years ago it is not looking likely. I am like Atl above in that I like to play golf year round.
