    My wife and I have lived here for a year now and really like our little neighborhood. It is small and private. We didn't want all the fuss of a big community. Lake James is perfect. The quality of construction is great, the pool is very nice and the work-out room fits our needs. Our home is right on the water so we spend a lot of time enjoying the views and taking in the nice weather.
