    I've lived at Wingsong Manor for over a decade — which is possibly a ridiculous length of time to stay anywhere you don't own. The management is super friendly and empathetic (not to be taken for granted) and the location by Mt. Tabor is superb. The rent is reasonable, and it's a lovely spot to live in all season.

    I've been here a few months but it's be so nice for all of them. Staff is quick to respond to issues and all neighbors are quiet at reasonable hours!
