Thankful Residents Share Why They Love Living at Orchards of Sweet Apple

After reading the frightful articles about Assisted Living and Nursing Homes in the newspaper recently, it made Wilson and I realize how thankful we are to have found our “retirement” home here in Sweet Apple.

We are so grateful for the Architect at the Orchards who thought long and hard about the features of our home. One story, a spare bedroom for guests, one bathroom for a handicapped individual, a spacious Master bedroom, lovely Den, a convenient kitchen and an inviting Family Room complete with fireplace. One important feature that we needed was a long wall in the Family Room that would accommodate our large TV!  We have that too! The gorgeous Sun Room is an extra bonus!

These beautiful surroundings and “carefree” maintenance of the exterior, along with being close to family, have made our move to Roswell seem Providential. We look forward to the future with confidence that we WILL be able to remain in our own WONDERFUL home!

With Thankful hearts,
Wilson & Elaine

The Retreat at Kemp’s River In The News

The Retreat at Kemps River…Where those age 55-and-better can find their “forever home”

By Rob Lauer

Evening is settling over The Retreat at Kemps River. The surrounding woodlands that are so scenic during the day are now in shadows. But the
spacious clubhouse that is at the center of this 55-and-better adult community is aglow with light and life. Inside neighbors greet one another with handshakes, hugs, and laughter. Some drift outside to relax around the spectacular pool; others settle into the seats around the stone fire pit. The atmosphere is that of a special celebration, but such gatherings are a part of life at The Retreat.
