Rimrock & Lake Montezuma is a nice place to live if you are retired or you want a slower pace of life.
I think it has a good location to Sedona, Flagstaff, Cottonwood, Camp Verde but be prepared to drive distances for shopping and entertainment. Camp Verde is about 15 minutes away and Cottonwood about 30 minutes or more.
Lake Montezuma/Rimrock has the creek that runs through it with big sycamore trees and a golf course. It has a community center, post office, library, dr’s office, park, fire dept. and a restaurant.
Rimrock is just over the bridge and you are allowed to have horses, chickens and I have seen goats and cows. The zoning isn’t that great in Rimrock, you can have a trailor next to a house and it may be pretty run down. Lake Montezuma is just across the bridge and has much better zoning with homes only. It has really grown and prices have really gone up but nothing is selling in that area. You can get property that has Red Rock views in that area. My family still lives in the area and have for 50+ years.
For me I had two small children and found it a little boring and the schooling not that great and wanted a different life for my children but I miss the small town atmosphere, being tucked away. When I was young we fed the ducks at the pond, watched fireworks on the golf course, had parades and played in the creeks. There is a lot of hiking and fishing in the near area and to me the weather is great.
Jobs are hard to find in that area, we had to commute to Flagstaff and in the winter that drive can be dangerous and it’s over an hour one way. All in all I like it there and if retired I would move back.
One of the oldest golf courses in Az is in Williams and it’s called Elephant Rock and it was built in 1920’s, Beaver Creek was built in the 60’s.
