Edward N.
The Retreat at Kemp’s River was definitely the right decision for us! Yes, like many, we are over 55 and were seeking a new construction, open floor plan, modern home. Our Charleston Model is perfect. We moved in a month ago. The community is welcoming, includes a pool, clubhouse, fitness center and more. My Granddaughters give a “Thumbs Up” to the pool and kid bike friendly street design. The customer service and follow up support has been prompt and professional. William Jones the Wendle and Rowe Service Manager gives each new owner his personal attention. Things are done correctly the first time. Come out and join this unique easy living Retirement Community in Chesapeake, VA.
