Carillon North Reviews
- John H.(Resident/Homeowner)|May 2, 2014We haven't really settled in as yet, but so far so good. A neighbor stopped in and gave us a run down on the activities and brought warm home-made cookies. Management has been very helpful and we hope to soon get more involved.
- Joann (Resident/Homeowner)|November 13, 2013This is a friendly, active community. I've made some good friends. I feeling like I live in the country yet everything I need is just a short drive away.
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|August 18, 2013We love the neighborhood and especially like that each entrance has a gate for privacy. The people here are friendly, the clubhouse is wonderful and we even have a nice little 9-hole golf course. We get a lot of use out of everything in the community and really like having everything so close.
