    So far so good

    5/5 Genia P. on Feb 1, 2022

    The only reason I am moving is that the rates have increased so drastically, which makes it less affordable to stay than to have found a different place to live. My saving grace is that I am transferring to a new property within the Fort Family, and for that I am grateful!! If ever the possibility to purchase a unit as a condo arises, count me in!! These properties are truly what I consider a "resort lifestyle" and I'm so happy I have been afforded the opportunity to become a part of it!

    This is a wonderful peaceful place to live

    5/5 Anonymous on Feb 24, 2022

    I've lived here for a year now. I am happy with this place. The property is manicured and the neighbors are nice. People walk their dogs on a leash and pooper scoop. I've even seen someone walking their cat on a leash. There is no noise except what you would expect with kids playing during the day. I can always find a place to park, but it might not be close to the door. Overall this is a great place.
