Very friendly community! Fun activities if you want to participate. My mom loves going to the clubhouse. Very quiet and peaceful. Large models. Lawn care is great and snow removed very quickly.

I was visiting for a few weeks to help my Mom, I am 51 years old. Some of the residents are very nice and some look at you like what are you doing here? Kind of a mix feeling on this community. In 4 years I could move here, but don't think I would because of that feeling. I feel my Mom's house is not build very good. When the winds hit you feel it in the house, and the windows that come with the home, not strong enough for these winds here. For what she paid for this house and the association fees, people need to be not so OLD and be more welcome like. All in all I have visited nicer communities.
