Local Reviews

I like that our neighborhood is secluded and that unless you know where you are going you don't even realize we are there.

Beautiful mountain viewsin a quiet neighborhood. Friendly helpful Neighbors. Close enough to grocery stores and other necessities

Library nearby as well as shopping. Cultural activities also fairly close. Hiking and outdoor activities within a reasonable distance.

I love having a grocery store in walking distance, takes me less than a minute to get there, I love the bicyclists community as well as the cafe right next door. It?s just so friendly and welcoming you can?t go wrong living here.

I love living out in this area because it is fairly quiet and safe. The out skirts of town are dark enough at night to be able to see a beautiful lit night sky. And I am far from neighbors, I love space between housing.
