Summer Place is awesome, and I can't wait to move in. It's a bunch of people my own age. They're very active, and they drink wine at dinner like I do. I was impressed. I have five windows in the living room. My apartment has a backdoor with a patio that goes all around the apartment, and with hooks for bird feeders, and various little sitting spots that overlook the woods. The staff is fabulous, very friendly, and accommodating. I tried the food, and it's like a restaurant. You can choose anything you want from the menu that day. Everything is included in the fee except for my cell phone.

Summer Place was a very nice, cheery, and bright facility. I met with a woman who toured the place with me who seemed nice and answered pretty much everything that I had to inquire about. It's well maintained and very clean. They had many activities for the residents. The apartments that were shown to me were very nice and very clean. It's a very nice facility inside and out. The grounds were kept very nice, and the building itself was very clean.

Summer Place was very nice and located in a convenient place. The rooms were really nice, too. They had a bus that would take you to different places if you can't drive. They had somebody that plays the piano once a week. The staff was really nice, too.

I visited Summer Place. They showed me an apartment that was at the end of the corridor. It had a huge octagonal living area and a wrap-around porch. You could place 30 lounge chairs there. It was more a meeting room than a home. It was not what I was interested in, and I couldn't imagine myself living there. They offer exercise classes, art classes, games, and all sorts of things. It was too expensive, and like living in a first-class hotel.
