Elliston Reviews

1 review
Elliston is such a beautiful place. The scenery is absolutely breathe taking! The spring, summer and fall seasons are all filled with so much color and life. If you love the mountains then Elliston is a place you would love to see.
While the scenery is amazing, it is a very small town. The great thing, however, is that it's just a 15 minute drive in either direction to reach a bigger city with much more to do recreationally. It is country life with a quick commute to a more urban place.
I love living in Elliston because it is peaceful and beautiful. If you want to go out on the town it is extremely easy to go down the road and do so.
