    Athol Reviews

    Athol is a wonderful rural area, with stunning views and scenary. The, lakes, waterfalls, and mountains are to die for. I love having lakes and mountains just around the corner. Athol is where everyone knows your name. Great place to live.
    This is where my families roots have been laid for quite a long time. However, it is sad to see that it is not as developed as it used to be. There is one main factory that is a main source of jobs, that keeps the town a float.
    Friendly, helpful people in my experience
