A Good Community, One of My Top Picks

My tour of this community went very well. It was one of my top picks for my mother. The community looks beautiful, everything is well maintained. The staff was kind and friendly. My questions were answered, they were informative. Unfortunately the location was a little far for our family. This is a lovely community, and I would recommend it.
