We are grateful that our 96-yr-old mother is at Carefree. Everyone who works there has demonstrated kindness & thoughtfulness. We can trust that even through this challenging time of uncertainty, mom is being cared for comprehensively & compassionately.
I currently do not live in the same state but when I did visit the community everything was great! The staff was very friendly, community seems very clean. My mother lives in the cottages so she is pretty independent. So far so good.
Did not like it at all! Very disorganized & unappealing.
I've been living here in an adorable, 1 bedroom cottage since August 1,2014. I am completely happy with everything so far!! Peaceful, friendly community with awesome management persons. Johnny-on-the-spot attention to maintenance requests. Happy camper, I am!! Just a couple of blocks from any kind of retail needs I could dream of. After living in a mobile home for 25 years, being responsible for all upkeep, repairs, yard work, etc. expenses, it is an enormous relief to have everything included in affordable rent. I also had to contend with less than acceptable neighbors, noise, etc and the Carefree Cottages community is beautiful and peaceful. Love it!!
rushed the tour, cottages are small and dark, must walk on snow /ice to car and to trash
We really liked this, it's #l on our list!! I wish there were more places like this. We just looked at the 3bd room, 2 bath with attached garage.
It is wonderful! I couldn't have found a nicer place! I live there myself. I love the apartment. Nice and big and beautiful. All brand new everything, including the tub and sink. And it is just beautiful and government subsidized but you wouldn't even believe it. Once a month they have a luncheon, and this last Wednesday they had a Thanksgiving. I play 500 cards, and they play Bingo twice a week. They have Bible studies and communion, and a bus that takes us to church and other places. The income cap is $35,000, and there is no wait list right now. Cottages are gorgeous, and can have a pet. Everything is well kept up. Right out my window is beautiful trees and a pond.
