Default Moving to Mont Belvieu area help

Will be moving to Mont Belvieu area soon for work. Was just curious if anyone had any ideas or suggestions on where to live in the Mont Belvieu area. Iíve looked at Eaglebrook apartments and Ravella apartments but didnít know if those were good spots to be or not. Iíve also looked at Zillow to see if any houses for rent are available. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Eaglebrook is right in the middle of MB and a good spot to be if your working close by. I'm sure they might be a little more than apartments in Baytown, but if you want a better location with a lot less riff raff then stay in MB.
If you are looking for a rent house reach out to the Remax office on eagle drive. They have a lot of good realtors.

Depends what ya wanna do, if you have a family ect. I worked in Mont Belvieu for years but lived in Houston. Found the apartments to be the same price and the drive wasn't bad. I also had 14 days off a month though and didn't want to be bored. If I ever work there again I'm sure I'll buy in the area though. Houses are expensive there.

Don’t let CSanders confuse (on accident of course) but you can live in Baytown but be in Mont Belvieu...some places in Baytown are closer to being Mont Belvieu than Mont Belvieu is

My sister lives there as well as a couple of co-workers. Great schools and is developing like crazy. I know one has had a lot of problems from the house he bought from Anglia homes, might be a builder to avoid.

I wish that was all we still had. People started moving here for the small town feel, then want to change it to the area they left.

Freshman still go through initiation every year with parent oversight and approval.

You can drive by the high school and see Texas and American flags flying in the beds of trucks.

Well it started as a 1 room schoolhouse, dirt roads and a hand drawn ferry across old river. Our old place started with a team of mules and 13 acres on the banks of Old River right where it empties into Old River Lake.

More people moved. in It still wasnt anything but rice or marsh. Tallow trees didnt exist in the United States. It all got worked with teams of mules. Once tractors came on the scene the soybeans were planted as cover crops to build soil then plowed under.

It really started going down hill when they built the interstate in the 50's and split our farm. Abandoned the old home place on the edge of the river (crawfish hideaway location) for the new one to the west. Even more people moved in.

A market for soybeans developed and they got cut and sold in addition to the rice. More people moved in.

In the 90s the rice market went to shiat. More people moved in. Sold the farm land in the late 90s. It has since been developed and more people moved in.

Sold the last place the family farm operated from in 2015 or so when hwy 99 construction ruined it. Grandma finally got her a nice new house that they didnt even have to build themselves this time. She got to enjoy it 4 years or so before she passed. They finally knocked the old box blind down a few months ago after working around it for the last year.

It was all really nice all those years of rice farming, growing up with room to run and do whatever you wanted.

We sure wish all those people would have never moved in. It was a lot nicer before they showed up. Is that how you remember it?

Still live in the area. Most of us are family and neighbors still just like on the farm. We just have a whole lot of stragers living next to us also.

We love the Mont Belvieu/Barbers Hill area. Low tax rate and excellent schools. Yes it is growing too fast but it is what it is. Great place to raise kids (for now), hopefully it stays that way.

I am also looking in the area. My dad has worked on the hill for 37 years are what is Targa now. I know that the town is not the same town from yesteryear but I think the community does try to keep the small town charm in every way they can. Barbers Hill is cliquish, you have been warned. It doesn't bother me because I can usually get along with anyone but its a very us vs them mentality sometimes. For me the benefits of great schools and proximity to Houston and family outweigh the negatives. I grew up in Huffman so I am already familiar with the politics of small towns.

Riff-Raff? I resemble that remark.

Pinehurst 1 and 2 usually have a few houses for rent available. The traffic on 146 itself can be bad at times, but bearable.

A couple of brand new apartment complexes on Kilgore pkwy. You can see Mont Belvieu probably from the second floor. Good luck with your re-location. Rent for awhile as you learn more about the area.

Check out the Banana Bend Bowbenders archery club in that area. They have some decent 3d shoots to keep your skills sharp. Just bring your rubber boots.

Warren Gas used to look down at Enterprise's little facility. Now, Enterprise looks down at little old Targa I bet your dad misses the Warren Gas days.

The old mayor Lonnie Follis worked at the Galena Park facility with me years ago.

If your looking for rental property I would suggest Baytown area. If you have school age kids then MB is good but not what it was when my kids went there. You may even want to look in Liberty county for a rent house.

I never said everyone from Baytown was trash. Just saying if you get into most of the apartments in Baytown then your going to deal with it.

Iím from Anahuac and itís not all pleasant either. Weíre actually going to move back that way soon.

Boy does he. We used to have company Christmas parties in the lab and I could drive into the plant and have lunch with dad in the control room whenever I wanted to. Things have certainly changed. He likes Targa and they have been good to him but its not what it once was. Enterprise is a beast for sure.

Yep, cracked me up how they worked around it for so long.

Many many deer took their last breath on that field edge from all sorts of bullets and broadheads. I miss that free easy hunting. Id get a 10 point every year and fill all my other tags also. Wouldnt be anything to have 20 to 30 deer out there every afternoon.

I understand and agree, we still have friends that live there and visit on occasion. I just havenít adjusted to seeing those hood rats walking around. They use to stay in the sewers.
