The Fairways at Lake Ridge Reviews
- Janet (Resident/Homeowner)|September 30, 2015Great place to live! We bought a resale in December of 2014 which was is move in condition and have been very happy since. The residents are welcoming, outgoing and active. We have made several new friends and participate in the myriad of offered activities. The Home Owner's Association is on solid financial ground and hold regular updates with the community. The community takes security seriously and is well manicured and beautiful regardless of seasons. The residents often say that we live in a resort! So glad we chose the Fairways as our retirement home.
- Karen |December 31, 2013We looked at many over 55 communities and decided that the Fairways was perfect. Though the homes are older, the landscapes are mature and beautiful. The home settings are well spaced with privacy yards backing up to woods or other natural settings. There is also new construction starting.
- Susan L.|September 7, 2013We've been looking at some resale homes here. Our friends live in the community and have had nothing but good things to say. Looks like most of the homes here need some cosmetic updates but there are some really nice places on the market now. We just need to make a decision, it's a hard choice!
