Ida Q.

God gave me the 10 desires of my heart here at The Arbors. 1.) I can walk right outside from my apartment. 2.) Screen porch 3.) A Fireplace 4.) A smooth cook top stove 5.) A washer and dryer in my apartment 6.) Ice and water dispenser in refrigerator 7.) Indoor garbage receptacle 8.) Indoor heated garage 9.) Indoor Mail pickup 10.) Great activities, games, entertainment, pot luck, lunches, cook outs etc. Most of all I love the way Alison manages The Arbors. She is detailed, personable, treats all of us fairly. She is the best manager The Arbors has ever had in my time!

We've had an amazing time at Autumn Woods! The staff is incredibly responsive and prompt always making us feel like a priority. We love the calm and peaceful atmosphere and really enjoy getting to sit at the pool or walk through all the beautiful nature encased among the apartment buildings. The tenants and the community activities really make Autumn Woods feel like a home. The apartment is in an awesome location close to so many restaurants and stores and just minutes from the cities!

We have enjoyed living at Creekside Gables for the last year. Cheryl the manager and Joe the maintenance man are fantastic!

Victoria S.

Resident

I have loved to see the changes here at Cedarwood over the last couple of months. There are so many different games and activities offered. You do more for the residents than any other apartment managers. Putting out coffee and water each day seems like a small thing but it is one of the reasons I am proud to live at Cedarwood, it is a great way of saying, “Hi, Welcome to Cedarwood.”

Leah S.

Resident

I really enjoy the new activities, they are great to attend. The other residents are so friendly and nice to spend time with. I enjoyed having chat and chowder outside this past month and look forward to helping with future activities!

Igor S.

I am Igor and I have lived at Cedarwood since November of 2017. I really love it here. Management and the maintenance team are doing a great job keeping everything nice, neat and looking good. I thank them for that, it makes me happy.

Tom K.

Resident

I would like to give Cedarwood a big “thank you” for how they dealt with winter snow and the parking lot. You assure the residents that you are working to solve any problems that come up and that means a lot.

Helga H.

Resident

Ever since I started eating my meals in the Ida Marie Bistro, the kitchen staff have spoiled me every day and always bring me hot coffee when I arrive. I love eating in the Bistro!

Dorothy W.

I really like my apartment at the Legacy. I also enjoy the music on Thursdays because it reminds me of the songs my husband and I used to dance to at the ballroom.

Sarah W.

Resident

I lived in a different community for a while prior to living at the Legacy and I love the Legacy so much more. Everyone is very friendly.

Judy G.

Resident

I love the Continuum of Care that has helped me through a recent medical setback. The courtesy I received gave me piece of mind and was a comfort to me. Who know that an apartment building would care so much about me. Thank you Summit Oaks and Lang Nelson!

Summit Oaks is a fabulous place to live. I love the get-together's and the residents here. We feel safe, sound, and so secure in our lovely home.

Everyone is so nice, I get along with everyone. I was looking for a quiet community that was convenient and Twin Lake North Apartments was exactly what I was looking for.

It is always well lit and has very nice scenic areas to sit outside and enjoy. You can come for a lot of different activities, which you don’t get other places.

Kari A.

I picked Emerald Pointe due to the location, so I could be close to family. I enjoy all the resident activities, love the office staff and the efficiency of our maintenance staff. The underground heated garage is a big plus, especially in the winter months.

I moved to The Anthony James a year and a half ago. I really like the view from my apartment and the many friends that I have made. The staff here are very caring and the "AJ Team is great. I like the many different outings and the meals that are put together by the AJ Team. The Anthony James is a great place to call home.

Bev E.

Resident

My husband and I moved in to Blaine Courts over 25 years ago. We knew we had found a great community of people. The building has changed over the years but the people are happy, active and friendly. My husband has since passed and some of my family thought I should move in to a smaller place but Blaine Courts is my home and I wasn’t leaving! My neighbors are my friends and we care about each other and watch out for each other too! I think this is a great place to live!

Josie and Rich H.

Residents

We have been married for 51 years. We raised our children in the Blaine area and when we retired we wanted a place that felt like home. We knew we had found “home” when we walked into Blaine Courts for the first time. Residents and staff are friendly and welcoming. It didn’t take long before we were in the swing of all the activities! The people who live at Blaine Courts are the best neighbors! We are so happy we found our place to call home!

Dan M.

Resident

The reason I came to Broadway Village is the people here and how nice and quiet it is. Volunteering at Broadway is something that I really enjoys too. The reason I stay is because of the friendships with friends who make me laugh and I’m never going to move!

Kathleen M.

Resident

The reason I came to Broadway Village is convenience to family, reasonable cost, and most importantly, the people I met when I came to visit. The reason I will remain at Broadway Village is how moving the kindness and friendliness of the maintenance crew, the caretakers, the office, and the other residents who were welcomed me.

Faye M.

Resident

There are so many wonderful things to do at Broadway Village, you should never be bored. I love the people who are here, I feel peace when I come home to my apartment because of my wonderful neighbors. I love the community room. If you don’t have a family around you, you can make a family at Broadway Village with your neighbors.

Wyatt W.

Resident

The reason I came to Broadway Village because a friend lived here and loved the community, flowers and beautiful grounds. The reason I choose to remain at Broadway Village are the friends we’ve made and what I great place it is to be.

Bob S.

Resident

The reason I came to Broadway Village is that I wanted to be in a community where it was quiet and I would be with people in my age group, could have Hercules as my companion, and a bonus at Broadway, the pools, and having my own garden. The reason I will stay is the “open front door feeling I have found with my neighbors.

Jerri H.

Resident

I just love it here at Calibre Chase. I’ve been here for eight years. The people are so nice and there are so many walking paths for me to take my daily walks.

Douglas and Dorothy B. on behalf of First Lutheran

Residents and Very Important People

We are so appreciative to our manager and all she does to welcome members from First Lutheran Church to hold a monthly Bible Study Brunch for residents at Calibre Chase. Management goes out of their way to make sure all feel welcome. We wouldn’t live anywhere else.

Ralph

Resident

There is always something good happening at The Crossings. I have a cozy apartment home...the residents are very friendly...there are always games & crafts & many other activities going on...we have lots of programs & events here such as a bus to a restaurant or a river cruise, a trip to Canterbury Downs, an apple orchard, a theatre play & many more functions. We have a great management team who continues to be aware of the residents’ needs & works to accommodate those needs. There is no reason to become bored here as there is always something to do. Thanks ‘Crossings’....I love it here.

Don and Janice W.

Residents

Just about everything! My apartment is unbelievably comfortable and has a fantastic view. We even have a young man, Jason, who comes to fix anything mechanical. We love the staff, who helps with any problems. The activities here are so numerous that I can’t keep up with them. The Crossings is a community in every sense of the word. We feel truly blessed to find this community...truly.

Alice and Ted P.

Residents

We moved to Cloverleaf Courts 6 years ago to be closer to family. We were so impressed with how clean the place is! I have been known to referred to Cloverleaf Courts as being like a ‘5 star hotel’. In the last year my husband has passed on. I have gained dear, dear friends who also live here and my family members are grateful to all who have come to comfort me. I am very happy we moved here when we did. The place is still wonderfully clean and I love living here.

Louise B.

Resident

Before moving here three years ago on the occasion of driving past Cloverleaf I would think to myself, “That place is really beautiful.” So when it came time to sell my house, downsize and find a new home Cloverleaf Courts popped into my head. I called and got a tour set up with the manager. The moment I walked into the grand lobby I thought, “This is home for me!” The manager introduced me to residents and I got to talk to them about what it is like to live at Cloverleaf. Three years later I have my own raised garden I tend to every summer with some of my neighbors at Cloverleaf. I walk daily for my health and I volunteer at many of the events and activities at Cloverleaf. This is a beautiful place to live but it is also filled with people who are truly kind. I am very lucky to call this my home!

Susie R.

I have lived at Orono Woods for 2 ½ years and enjoy living here very much. It’s a fun community with a lot to do and we are a family. We have coffee each morning and share many ideas/stories. Orono Woods is home.

Bobbi L.

At Orono Woods we are a family - We say “hello” to our neighbors - We look out for each other. The staff is always helpful with groceries or bringing packages up to my apartment. People here care…

Melvin H.

Resident

I am a new resident at River Oaks, but from day one, they made me feel like part of the family. They even cared about my dietary needs and fixed foods that work for me. There is no time to be bored here because we play bingo, music entertainers perform for us several times a month and I have already taken the Lang Nelson transportation to a community concert.

Ralph S.

Resident

River Oaks is a great place to live. We are one big happy family. We have a new “wall of honor” at River Oaks and us veterans felt very honored that they went above and beyond to show their appreciation to those of us who so proudly served our country.
