Carillon Reviews (9)

Average Rating for this Community

We have lived in Carillon almost five years and truly enjoy the safety, beauty and caring community. The HOA leadership is prudent, fees are fair, and amenities are diverse, inclusive and great for learning and socializing. Plenty of convenient shopping is nearby, too.


Carillon has the best clubhouse and amenities of any communities in the south west burbs. We've got indoor and outdoor pools, a hot tub, fitness room, ballroom, cards room, library, billiards, ceramics, wood working and a lot more. We have a broad range of home styles, sizes, and price points. The residents are very friendly and it's easy to meet people. We love living here.


We are one of the "Early Settlers" coming up on 20 years. We were downsizing moving from a four bedroom raised ranch in Lisle IL. We found a floor plan we liked. 2bed room 2 full baths 1550 sq ft. No stairs (except for the half basement)My wife swims 5 days a week at the club house. I golf 3 days a week and dabble in water colors and wine making in the winter. Life is good


Carillon is a fabulous community. We visited relatives here for years and were not surprised to find that it was extremely attractive as we approached the target age for residence. We can be as active as we choose, taking advantage of the extensive variety of events and activities, or we can simply enjoy the privacy and beauty of the grounds. We are happy to be here.


Carillon is a great place to live. I searched several other 55+ communities in the Southwest suburbs before making a decision. Carillon offers some of the best value of any of these communities. The clubhouse is huge, the people are amazing and the location is right near I-55 so I can easily get to my grandchildren in Downers Grove.
I've made so many new friends here and I absolutely love it!


There is so much to do in this community. Lots of activities and groups to join. Excellent place to live.


The variety of neighborhoods avoids the cookie cutter syndrome. Numerous styles of homes and floor plans to appeal to different needs. Better construction than any I've checked within a 30 mile radius. Guarded gate access a plus for security. Nearby emergency and medical services and businesses. Only negative is the heavy traffic access road.


I'm very happy to have purchased a home with a beautiful view (5th hole blue course)everyone has been very friendly and I have enjoyed the hot tub and pool in the clubhouse look forward to making this our new home


This neighborhood is 55+ and has a lot of different style homes. The community does a big loop with many small neighborhoods branching out around the golf course. The clubhouse is large and there is always something to do. I like the fact that Walgreens is right outside the entrance.
