We liked the Summit very much. The woman who showed us around was very cordial and informative. We met for an hour or so with the marketing director, and we had dinner there and met with some of the residents, so we thought we had a good tour. The food was excellent. We saw their cottages and the apartments. The one we saw was about 1,300 sq. ft., and it had 2 bedrooms, a decent size kitchen, 2 baths, and a balcony. We particularly liked the cottages that they have. It has got one side left that was fully developed to build another cottage on, and we are considering that. It is a great location because there is sort of a town center right across the street with retail establishments, and that was really attractive to us too.

As a resident of The Summit's Independent Living apartments, I am assured of lifetime use of my home and I have access to all the community areas as well as the assurance of immediate medical needs. My apartment is cleaned regularly by friendly and efficient personnel, and I join my friends each evening in a lovely dining room where I am served restaurant-style my choice of dinners. My transportation needs are met if I do not have a car. This is life at its best.
My choice of moving to The Summit was based on several factors. I wanted a senior home with beautiful grounds and location and I found it here. I wanted a home that guaranteed to support me in the event of a financial hardship and The Summit definitely did that in writing and I could not find that with any other home I researched. I wanted a home that adhered to the highest cleanliness standards and I found that at The Summit. I wanted a home that was small enough to know all my neighbors in a family way and I've found this at The Summit. I wanted a home where the staff members exuded commitment, faith, and love and that I've found at The Summit. Again, this is life at its best.
