-Apartments are well appointed, good storage and closet space, good size kitchen with modern appliances, comparatively lots of windows with nice exterior views. -Good quality construction, attentive to fixing wherever/whenever repairs are needed. -Multiple restaurants and pubs, offering a variety of different menus, each menu having many selections to please the residents' food preferences. Food excellent, well prepared, good quality, good sized portions. Those in charge seek feedback from residents regarding how the food is, what improvements or changes recommended. And they respond to to those inputs. -Grounds are well maintained, lots of attention to flowering plants. -Both interior of buildings and exterior grounds are kept very clean. Staff constantly tending to ensure maintained that way. -Management and Leadership are excellent to work with, helpful, solution oriented, friendly, personable. They remember peoples' names and their stories. -All the staff are friendly, helpful. They seem to always be working, tending to every detail necessary to maintain the cleanliness, comfort, attractiveness and enjoyment of the facility. -Many walking paths on the grounds. Also, as all the buildings are connected via glassed-in enclosed walkways, one can get in good long walks without every having to get outside, which is good during rainy, snowy or icy weather. -There are gyms and an indoor swimming pool (another in the future). -Every apartment gets its own covered, reserved parking space. -There is a bus system that is continually running to assist residents to travel to different buildings and restaurants on the campus. -There are many activities, clubs and featured programs; some are from local universities, most are put on by and feature the residents themselves. -The residents all seem friendly, happy and anxious to help others.

The apartments have wonderful views and great appliances. The staff is fast to fix anything that breaks. The staff is very friendly and are quick to learn your name. There are so many wonderful activities that it is hard to chose what to do. There is something to interest everybody and if your choice is not available you can start your own club. The residents are all friendly, well educated and have traveled, so conversations are fun and educational.

Ashby Ponds is a very upscale community. It has a huge buy-in, you get one meal a day, the food is superb, it’s very clean, and the people are very nice. It’s very big, and you almost need a wheelchair to get around. It’s all connected, you never have to go outside, but to us, it was just too big. They have a pool, workout room, bocce ball, and a dog park. It’s really a superb place. They have an in-house chef that prepares the food the way you want it.

My parents have been there 3 years. One of the reasons we chose it was if we needed help with care, we assumed they had some available. They have none. If you have an issue, you’re on your own. They also have only 1 rehab/assisted living and no guarantee you can get a room there if needed. My parents have also told me the food is terrible and I have been there a couple times and truly can’t even eat it. They charge a huge down payment and monthly fee, these shouldn’t be lacking. It is an immaculate building and like that they have what they need in 1 place.

My parents recently moved into Ashby Ponds. While there are many good amenities, the managing is poor. We never heard anything from the sales/marketing person once we signed. We've had to call numerous times for things to be fixed or appointments to be made. They never respond to the first call or email. Overall a real disappointment! Think twice about it. They get you in and then good luck.

Ashby Ponds is a brand-new place and it is very large. Everything is first class, but it's also expensive. The deposit is huge. There were so many people there. They also accept pets. There were lots of rooms, and there were apartment-type accommodations. The staff is good, and they even have my name on a parking place. The food is also very good, but you only get one meal per day, and you take care of the rest. Everything you want to do, they have it.

We have decided to move to Ashby Ponds. I thought it was the best. They are top quality and close to family. I like the area because it’s an open space. It has a lot of amenities and large apartments with a lot of light and space. My husband has been sick and has a lot of support if he needs doctors and nurses. The food is OK. I will have one meal a day, so the other two meals are up to me, which is fine.

I was very favorably impressed by the people, services and facilities at Ashby Ponds. My relative was distraught at losing a spouse and did not want to move from their home. The transition was was difficult because of grief. Within six months, his attitude improved considerably. After one year, he was very happy and appreciative of his surroundings. He has made wonderful friends, enjoys the activities and has received excellent care. Ashby Pond is a blessing.

Ashby Ponds was very pleasant. The rooms were very nice. The person who showed us around was very personable. Their meal plan was variable. They were very clear about the number of activities they had available, like lots of arts and crafts and theater. The community was very large, so because of the size, you can do just about anything you’re interested in. There was an attractive bike path outside.

Ashby Ponds was pretty nice and clean and had some nice facilities. They had a nice dining room, a library, and some art classes. It’s on a good area of land. What we liked about it was the fact that their walking area was enclosed, so that you could have a good long walk. You don’t have to go to the mall; you could stay on the property and walk around, and if there is bad weather, you don’t have to worry about that because you could walk around the property where the buildings are all connected by enclosed hallways. I know they offer activities for tours and physical activities and entertainment because the membership director told us some of the things that they do. All of the residents seemed pretty happy. They are pretty comprehensive in their list of sevices that they provide.

My Mom is a resident here and she is so happy and thankful she chose Ashby Ponds. To clear up some confusion in the other postings I read listed on this site... it is by no means "out in the boonies". It is in the middle of a huge residential area, up the street from where the Redskins practice. There are shops and a huge mall 5 mins down the road. Those who live in DC might consider it far outside the beltway but yes, there is life outside of DC and Loudoun is a bustling, gorgeous area of VA to live in. The apartments are NOT all alike. There are many floorplans to choose from. My Mom was able to choose the floorplan she wanted along with the colors of tile, cabinets and countertops. There are moderately sized apartments, very large ones and many sizes in between. Once you move in you are NOT expected to pay for local transportation, unless of course you choose to hire a private taxi for transport. Ashby Ponds provides local transportation to many places including the post office, grocery stores, shops and the mall, all free of charge. They also have a shuttle bus that runs throughout the community to provide transport within Ashby Ponds. My Mom has met so many people and developed wonderful, close relationships with other women in the community. Countless times she has told me she can't believe how lucky she is to live in such a beautiful place, to have made so many friends and that she is happier than she could've ever imagined being, after having lost my Dad suddenly back in 2014. Ashby Ponds is very safe and secure and the staff takes excellent care of the residents. My Mom had a medical emergency last month and the staff were there in minutes after she pulled the emergency cord in her apartment, caring for her and evaluating her condition. It makes me breath easier, knowing she is safe and in good hands. Every location within Ashby Ponds can be accessed via internal hallways and bridges. This means that my Mom and her friends need not ever step foot in any ice and snow during the months when the weather can get dicey in this area. She parks her car in an enclosed, parking garage under her building. Ashby Ponds has exceeded our expectations and I will continue to tell anyone and everyone how happy we have been with our choice to have my Mom move here.

Ashby Ponds was nice; the people and the accommodations were nice too. I like the fact that they had different dining rooms, and the only thing I dislike about it was that it was so far out in the boonies when I call. They do have a bus service, computer classes, physical therapy, and cooking classes. The apartments that I saw were extremely nice and nice laid out. They had granite tops and a nice kitchen. If the location were better, I would move in tomorrow.

We have lived here just over two weeks and everything has exceeded our expectations. The security is the tops, food is fine restaurant quality and the neighbors/staff very friendly and helpful.

Once you have paid the downpayment and have moved in and paying the monthly payments, should you want to go anywhere with transportation, you must pay privately. Not included!. If you want to take an exercise swim class, must pay for that too. Frankly I find that this place nickels and dimes residents horribly.

I like Ashby Ponds. Everything in it is very elegant and clean. The only thing is that it is huge, and I do not know if I will be happy in anything quite that big. I do not like anything too small either, but it is too big. It has a pool, bathtubs, and a gym. The rooms are like in any other places -- they are all about the same. The staff is very nice, and they have a list of activities.

If we would decide, so far, it looked like that Ashby Ponds would probably the one we would go to. It had a lot of wide open places. It was lovely and a fairly new facility. It was really clean and bright. We were just really pleased with the whole atmosphere of the place. The young lady who assisted us was very helpful, and they had other presentations. We had been out there two or three times to attend some functions.
