Emerald Pond was very nice, but the average age is around ten years older than I am, and I feel more comfortable with my own age group. The apartments weren't bad, they were larger than the other communities that I have seen, but there were no actual kitchens. They have a lot of amenities, like a library, and a game room with pool and card tables. What stood out to me was the fact that it was very clean. I had lunch there and the food was excellent. The staff was very good as well.

Emerald Pond is very clean and the people are very pleasant. You get so many amenities. They change your sheets and give you fresh towels every day. They have a wonderful dining area, crafts, and a few gym machines to use. There's just so much stuff. I have a studio room and I have enough stuff here that I don’t need anything else. Everybody has been wonderful, especially Jeff who showed me around and gave me a good tour of the place. I'm quite pleased with the place and the food is quite good. The place has no stairs, but they have elevators so you don't have to have any assistance. They have a long list of activities.

Emerald Pond was clean, well-maintained, and inviting. The location is great because they have great wildlife around it and at the same time it's in the middle of the city. I saw where they have game boards, cards, and a pool table. There are a lot of activities that anybody would want to be a part of. The staff was very open, honest, friendly, and very helpful.

Emerald Pond was very clean and very beautiful, but the apartments were small. I liked it the best, but it wasn't my decision. The place was up-to-date and modern. The pond out front was gorgeous, too.

Emerald Pond is very expensive but beautiful. The rooms are small, and they allow people to smoke there. It smells everywhere and in the hallways, which is why I didn't like it. It's not a good environment, but it's very pretty and on a pond.

Emerald Pond had small cottages that you could live in independently with a dining room, a library, and a movie theater. I would be able to keep on working while living there. I liked it so much because of the nearness to my family and work.
