Big Bend is a great place to live or vacation. I spend a lot of time out there. Cool days in the mountains or warm days by the Rio Grande river. Sights, like you have never seen anywhere else. Star gazing is outstanding. Try it sometime.

What about the Big Bend area of Texas, that westernmost place that dips down on the map of that state? Most Texans never even come here...

what I have noticed is,,, most people live above their needs. they want to live like millionaires but don't have the where withal to do that and consequently they fall into the big rut and struggle just to exist, then along come the blessed events and all is done forever. it seems that we need to preplan as young people and stick by it, easier said then done isn't it ?  I am working on my second million because I missed the first one  LOL.

Some family will move there and then insist the closest public school system bus their kids to school.
If a lot of these homes don't even have bathrooms and in the middle of no where -- why are they so expensive??

For those of you calling this place a hell hole, over priced, ugly, a shack, let me tell you from experience. It's not the house it's WHERE IT IT. I've spent a good deal of time in Alaska and you don't live there to have a mansion. I'd buy this shack in a heart beat if it was up near Homer or somewhere north on the peninsula. If you have ANY love for the outdoors Alaska is THE place. We will retire there, and I'd be perfectly happy with this shack as long as I could walk outside and see THAT view every day.
I have a home I built myself in the mountains of Western NC. Its a frame house, full finished basement. I elected to make it board and batten because the logs invite boring bugs and they a very hard and expensive  to get rid of.

I think this website is great! I own a beautiful log home worth 600K that I purchased for a retirement home but I decided to go back to work , so I bought a smaller house in town. Now I'm at the age where the log home is too far away from things an older person needs. This allows me to advertise my beautiful property in the mountains of Colorado so that the upper class can have a second home.

Forget the prices the quiet serenity and self reliance is what quality of life is for some. If you think its to pricey buy the land build it yourself, Just saying

I would love to have a house in the middle of no where so i can walk around and do what i want freely without dealing with others

To those of you complaining about the price, it's including the acreage. Land no matter where it is, will never be cheap.

Got to be rich to get any of these places. What about the average person getting a nice remote place?

Glad to see others in same situation. Growing up in suburbs of Chicago, first part of business career spent in the cities suddenly found myself in 9200 sq ft ranch. situated on 200 acres in Paradise West Virginia.

residing at Space Mountain loaded with wild life,ATV trails, time has come to go back to upper Mid-West where I know nothing like this exists.


This is where I want to get my home in the middle of nowehere and not in city suburbs.

you get more privacy,you have no neighbors next to you,and nature is actually your true neighbor.

you live completely surrounded by trees and enjoy peace and tranquiliy where noise is absent,but the sound of nature is present.I want a log home in the woods,not a fancy home in the city.

We live on 140 acres in the middle of the USFS in the Rockies.  It's so remote that friends can't find it- even with directions.  The peace and tranquility are unbelievable not to mention the quiet.  When a jet flies overhead at 35 thousand feet the roar is almost disturbing.  At any time in a major city you can have 15 jets passing overhead and not hear one because of all the constant noise produced by cars, machinery and the lot.  It's hard to believe that, today, we aren't the only ones seeking some solitude in our lives.  One only has to read "On Walden's Pond" to see little has changed in the past 300 years or perhaps in the last 3 million years.  Stress subsides, relationships get stronger and a deeper respect and understanding of nature and it's ways are imparted on those fortunate enough to experience this.
