Mountaintop, is a small town out of Luzerne County with a population of about 11,100 residents. There are convenient bus services; the average one-way commute is about 31.9 minutes. The cost of living is affordable and worth the pay with the quality of the homes in the area. One of the reasons I chose to live here is the affordable housing market.
We get beautiful to die for weather here, summers are hot and pleasant. Occasionally we may get scattered showers and thunderstorms; however, they really do not last long. Winters are cold and carry about 35 inches of snow throughout the year.
