Average Rating for this Community

We really like this neighborhood because it's small, quiet and friendly. I golf a lot around town and always have someone willing to go along! I enjoy playing cards with the guys at the clubhouse and my wife keeps busy with book club and crafts. We are enjoying all the activities here. The prices of the houses are pretty reasonable too.


Nice community, but on the edge of town. To get to any decent shopping area is a 30 minute drive.
