We moved to Carillon in September 2012. Although we had lived in Wood Dale for 34 years we never really felt connected to the community. Since moving to Carillon we have made many friends and our calendar is full of fun activities. We both agree that moving here was the best thing we could have ever done and just can't imagine living anywhere else!

We moved into Carillon in November of 2008 from Tinley Park. We chose this community to be close to our grandchildren in Elgin. Prior to selecting Carillon we visited a number of other similar subdivisions and found that the homes were by far the best relative to cost and layout. The clubhouse offers opportunities for residents to participate in clubs, fitness(swimming and wellness center), and relaxation. A golf course was constructed in the fall and will be ready for play in the spring(2013). There is a property manager and lifestyle director on site. We love being part of this community and enjoy our friendly neighbors.

We recently moved to Carillon at Cambridge Lakes from Richmond about two months ago. Prior to selecting Carillon we did visit the surrounding 55 communities in the area and chose this one because of size of the community and the amenities. The community itself is the perfect size for us - not overwhelming. The location is ideal for our needs and we feel as if we are still in the country especially backing up to the lake. An added benefit is that we are now living closer to our grandchildren.

The clubhouse with the pool and fitness center is great, the walking paths and golf course grounds are just beautiful. There is an abundance of great shopping and restaurants nearby. The common areas are beautiful and well-maintained and we like the fact that this is a gated community. We are quite pleased with our choice!

We moved from Hoffman Estates and have lived in Carillon at Cambridge Lakes for about 3 months. We selected Carillon because we liked the amenities and size of the community - big enough but still small enough to have that friendly feel. Our neighbors are very friendly and made us feel welcome. We use the clubhouse (work out area) every week and just attended our first holiday party. We can't say enough about the community.

My husband and I have lived in Carillon at Cambridge Lakes since the summer of 2010. I can truly say that moving here has changed our lives and our marriage--in a really good way. We get to spend more time with each other because we don't have to worry about mowing grass, shoveling snow, or even pulling weeds. We have more friends than we've ever had, and there is always something interesting to do here. The community is very inclusive, we love our home...we even started a band that we're both part of. Who would think at our age that we'd be singing rock music and playing gigs. Our lifestyle director and club manager are both very tuned into the needs and requests of the residents. If there is some activity or class that you want and it's not already here, they help you get it going. We LOVE living here. We really do!

We have lived in Carillon at Cambridge Lakes for almost four years, and we love it. We believe the models are nicer than at Del Webb. We love the community, our neighbors, and are actively involved in many activities and programs. Really nice clubhouse with indoor and outdoor pool. And, we are getting our 3-hole golf course in 2013. Nowhere near the amount of rules that Del Webb has, only the necessary ones.

We moved to Carillon in Pingree Grove in December 2009 after living in Hoffman Estates for 25 years. Shortly afterwards we attended our first party at the Clubhouse and we met many home owners. They were very friendly and invited us over to there houses and made us feel very welcome. Ever since then we feel part of a big family. We have a great community. The Lifestyle is very relaxing with plenty of activities. One of the many benefits in living at the Carillon is that they take care of mowing the grass, trimming the shrubs and snow removal. It's sometimes difficult to leave when you have lived in your home for 25 years but we have a new home and more friends than ever. It was the right decision. We love it here.
