Re: potter county...anyone spend time there

The only towns of any consequence are Coudersport and Galeton and they are not big. The county is beautiful and is an outdoors treasure trove. More hunting and fishing than you can shake a stick at - and I can shake a stick at alot of hunting and fishing.
If you are an outdoors nut, you cannot do better in PA.
If you are someone who likes the night life and alot of people, it will probably not be for you.
Can't speak to the rent thing.

Things to do:
Split wood, chase flys away, go to Galetons fireworks.

Re: potter county...anyone spend time there

I love the area and could spend a couple or three months there in the fall, but as much as I love it I don't think I could live there fulltime. Winters would be very long in my opinion. Your mileage may vary. Rents used to be quite resonable but I'm not sure how much the natural gas boom has affected the avilability and price in Potter. It certianly has in Tioga and some of the other counties to the east. Good luck in whatever you choose to do!

I love Potter County! I've already been there more than 60 days this year. Where is the work opportunity - north or south Potter Co.?

Re: potter county...anyone spend time there

I don't have a lot of information at this point. Are you there working for the natural gas industry?

Re: potter county...anyone spend time there

I live it Potter County. I live in Galeton, which is east of Coudersport. If you love to be outside, you cant beat this place. There are so many hiking trails and creeks to fish in, you could go to a new place each day and never run out. If you are more the town type and want a mall or shopping center,,, wrong place for you.

Re: potter county...anyone spend time there

Its paradise ! You are much better off to buy a small place there than rent, the gas workers have driven the rental rates and rentals are scarce. Small country properties are very easy to find and not expensive. Depending on how long you stay would make your decision, but you would have no problem selling a place if you left. Be prepared to drive an hour for anything resembling the modern world.
