The Retreat at Craig Ranch Reviews
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|October 13, 2013My husband and I purchased a home here right after the community opened and we've loved making the move here. The amenities are outstanding! We both golf so having the course close by is great, the fitness center has given us new motivation to live a healthier lifestyle and we give ourselves spa perks when we keep going on our fitness routine. The quality of all the amenities here makes it really easy to want to be active rather than sit at home. It's a fantastic neighborhood and we've recommended it to lots of people, a few of who have also purchased homes here and are very happy.
