Our year-round residents number 85 to 90 during the summer months.
There is plenty to do... entertainment, dancing, and other planned activities happen every day of every month during the winter season. You can play shuffleboard, enjoy our clubhouse and swim in our heated pool (open daily from morning until dusk). Pool tables are located in the mini hall, behind the office.
