I am a resident for 17 years. The services provided are not worth the fees.
The present Home Owners Association is a social club and has no power over fees but only
social, recreational, and educational powers. At the present time the Home Owners
Association is not functional as has been so since 2005. The original Home Owners
Association which had legal and financial powers changed its name to Harwood Properties.
The officers of that association is the present owners of Cherrywood Estates. Look else where
to buy and you will have far less problems.

Yes I'm a resident. However there is much discrimination against renters here. Yes the amenities are nice but renters do not have the use of the fitness rooms, are not included in their directory and a few other privileges. People are not every friendly. If you are looking for quiet this is the place to be.

I have been at Cherrywood for a few years and like how quiet and casual this place is. My house was priced good so I don't have to worry about living beyond my means here. I play bocce and pickleball, poker and dominos. Living here keeps me busy and I enjoy spending my time with the people here.

I feel you should have photos of all the areas you offer such as the fitness center inside and out, and all the other activity areas. I only saw 3 phots on your web site.
