Ozark Mountain Living
Ozark Mountain Living is embraced by the communities of Cherokee Village, Horseshoe Bend and Ozark Acres.

They attract retirees and families from all over the nation seeking a more relaxed lifestyle and welcome new businesses to revitalize the area.
The Ozark Mountains are mostly located in Arkansas and Missouri.

Here in North Arkansas temperatures average from the lower 80’s in the summer to the upper 30’s in the winter.
