Burnsville is a wonderful place to live and shares a rich history with most of the Western North Carolina region. The views are nothing short of majestic. The climate is mild. Residents of Yancey County are most welcoming and upbeat, even at the post office! While traditional employment might be somewhat limited, self-employment opportunities abound. For those who wish to retire in a mountain community, it doesn’t get better. The locale encourages a healthy and practical lifestyle with access to contemporary civilization or the choice to be self-sufficient.
Beautiful scenery, really nice people, and extremely reasonable living expenses. Have not met one person who has been unfriendly. I think I'm going to love it here!
I love the rural "country" aspects of Burnsville and the events that bring the community together. It has beautiful scenery and a convenient layout. I would like to see change, on an individual basis, of increased respect of others' opinions. Sometimes people can be judgemental and rude.
