Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Mammoth Cave,
the Ollie / Cub Run neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 42.85 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 90.7% of America.

When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Ollie / Cub Run neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 58.4%, which is higher than 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.0% of all neighborhoods in America, with 40.1% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes.
