Cottonwood? *Delilahbadapple* or others...

For those who haven't seen my posts, DH are planning to move to Prescott later this summer.  But, DH just got asked to do a phone interview for a job he applied for in his field - but the job is in Cottonwood.  Neither of us has ever been to Cottonwood... I understand that it is about an hour from Prescott?  And that it is quite a bit smaller - pop 11,000.  Everything we've learned so far is from internet research and since we are in MN now, obviously we can't hop on over to check it out.

Does anyone know about Cottonwood?  The good, the great, bad and ugly??  Understanding that we both love Prescott, what is your opinion of how we'd like Cottonwood? 

Of course he may not even get the job, but if he did it would be a really great opportunity so we'd really like to consider it! tia!

    Where is time going??
  • Hello again! :) Cottonwood...hmmmmm....can't say that I would ever really WANT to live there, but if the money were right and I could find a cute farmhouse, I'd consider it. It's not a bad place really, just a little more "country" if that makes any sense at all!

    I did work for about 4 years at Cliff Castle Casino in Camp Verde (neighboring town to Cottonwood) and made the drive from Prescott, although I wouldn't recommend it. It was rough. Also, my husband worked for a few months on the hospital there and carpooled...so maybe your DH could ask if there were others from nearby towns who were ridesharing?

     Good luck on your search! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I'm around most days and would love to help!

  • hey! thanks for the reply. From what we've seen, it looks like we wouldn't LOVE to live there either (compared to Prescott) - but this job is a great opportunity and if he gets it we won't pass it up. We figure it gets us at least in the area we want to be and the clinic he'd be at is looking into expanding into Prescott which would be perfect!  DH is actually going out there in a week for a second interview and he'll check out the situation...  if it comes down to it maybe he'll have to do the commuting thing. I know they said one guy who works there commutes from Phoenix - yikes!!  We'll have to see what pans out and just go from there. I'm sure you'll hear from me again!! :)
