What Residents are Saying:
Visitors particularly enjoy this community's well-portioned, tasty food. One says, "Today, I had the Thanksgiving lunch... The chef served turkey and gravy, creamed spinach, cranberry jello, mashed potatoes with pumpkin bread pudding with butter pecan ice cream. It was spot on. The appetizers were small and delightful, just the right serving size. Also, the service was great."
