We recently moved to Salemtowne and so far we just love it. We have found the neighbors to be very friendly and helpful. There are many activities. I have been welcomed wherever I have gone. There is always something going on. We have a lovely view of the golf course but haven't played as of yet. still busy getting the house together. I am sure we are going to love living here!
