Local Reviews

shops and restaurants at Kentland. we go to many restaurants. and grocery stores. We go to nearby movie theatre.

I have grown up here and there are lots of restaurants nearby. We have several parks and movie theaters along with a walkable lake.

I like that my neighborhood is centrally located to great schools and shopping. It is also in-between 2 major cities that are within a 25-45 min drive.

The neighbors are friendly . The homes are kept reasonable. There are enough places to walk for exercise.

I like how the neighbors are so nice to everyone,were close by schools so kids can easily walk to school when their parents are at work.

To the local playground with grandkids. Having neighbors as friends. You can walk to the downtown to shop or to a grocery store.
