"A quiet spot in the foothills"

Idledale is a small town just northwest of Morrison. This pretty area lies among winding streets in the foothills of the mountains. There are only 252 residents here and you can find a variety of home types at different prices scattered about. The median household income is around $70,000 which is about $15,000 more than the state average, although to buy a home here costs about $40,000 less than the state average. This makes the cost of living very good.

The area itself has no amenities so residents must travel to town to groceries to dine out. During the winter months the roads here can get icy and slick, but road crews do their best to keep it clean and passable. The schools here get above average ratings when compared to the rest of the state.

This would be a good area to live in for someone who doesn't like to be in the city but wants to be close enough for work or shopping.
