The city of Cortland boasts scenic Mosquito lake views, five public parks, local shopping that includes antique and consignments shops, a bicycle shop and bistro, several local eateries, and small-family owned businesses.
An excerpt from the listing includes:
Named last year as the top city to retire in Ohio, the ambience of Cortland seems to lend itself to an older demographic, with a strong community feel throughout. Situated on the border of suburbia and farmland, the town’s population has actually grown fairly significantly over the past few decades, but the mindset of its residents hasn’t changed a bit.
At its heart, it’s still a small, rural town of like-minded people seeking the same easy-going and simple way of life. As far as small town America is concerned, it is charm personified.
