I have lived at Edgewater since 2011 and really like it. My daughter and her family live in Geneva and my son with his family lives in Algonquin so it's the perfect central location. Everything I could need is available along Randall Road and it's pretty close to I-90 too. The clubhouse is very nice and there are lots of events and activities to participate in. I enjoy keeping busy and spending time with my friends here. I also considered Sun City out in Huntley and while it is also very nice, I just preferred this location more than driving the extra 10 minutes out to Huntley.
