I feel safe
I have lived at The Legends for almost one year. It has been a very positive experience. I feel safe and happy living among some really great people. Staff has always been welcoming, helpful and supportive. Social activities are offered that has fostered a friendly, caring atmosphere for us. I am glad I chose The legends to be my home! I am looking forward to many more happy years here.
Life at the Legends
Over the past three years my family and friends have often commented positively about the buildings, grounds and atmosphere at the Legends. The landscaping of the grounds is beautiful and great care is taken to maintain and keep them attractive. The buildings’ interiors are kept in very good condition by a professional maintenance staff. All maintenance issues are addressed promptly and efficiently. The office is run by a very professional and personable manager who encourages tenants to participate in the various social opportunities of “life at the Legends”. These include: special dinners, educational group meetings on topics of interest to seniors, card and game nights and entertainment by outside groups. Overall, it has been a pleasure residing at the Legends.
I watched as Legends was constructed. The thought hit me I should move there. I investigated and found a beautiful facility with a warm and friendly staff, a perfect location; close to shopping and bordering on North Ponds Park. Being one that loves to walk and ride a bike it was perfect for me. I moved in in November. I love my beautiful apartment. In a short time I have established several new friends. The environment promotes a strong community atmosphere.
I feel safe and secure
I’ve lived at the Legends for 4 1/2 years and I’m thrilled. I’ve lived in apartments all of my life and this is the best! Staff is always available for you and if they’re busy they get back with you promptly. I feel safe and secure here.
I love my work-in kitchen
I’ve lived at the Legends for 1 1/2 years and the experience has been a happy one. My apartment is spacious and I love my work-in kitchen. The community is welcoming and friendly and many functions are part of the activities here. Such as, dinners, coffee hours, bingo, movie night and Bible studies. The staff makes everyone feel at home and they keep the Legends in pristine condition. I miss my gardens, but the landscaping is beautiful here and so well kept by our maintenance staff. North Ponds is the perfect spot for walking or jogging, or just sitting on the benches enjoying being outdoors. Shopping is readily available from Aldi’s to Walmart along with local Library and Senior Center. I’m so glad to be part of this community at the Legends.
I’ve been here for almost 2 years. I’ve enjoyed my apartment, my surroundings, and the staff. Sue has been very helpful. It’s quiet and so nice to be around seniors. I am only 1 mile from my work, which is great!
I absolutely love my new apartment/community
I sold my home and moved into The Legends at North Ponds in August 2017. What a difference this has made in my life! No longer do I experience the stress of home ownership. I no longer worry about lawn maintenance, snow removal, roof problems, etc. Maintenance at The Legends does a phenomenal job of plowing, shoveling and icing the walkways. They even shovel in front of my garage door.
Sue, North Ponds manager, has been instantly responsive to my questions and any concerns I have. My heat, hot water and standard cable are included in the rent. My mailbox is inside my secure building. I have an attached garage that has room for additional storage. I also chose to purchase additional indoor storage in the main building for clothing, shoes, bedding, etc., as downsizing was a challenge for a woman who loves to shop.
My apartment is perfect for my needs. It includes a beautiful balcony. North Ponds Park is right outside my building with it’s beautiful walking trails. All stores that I need, my bank, gas station, Urgent Care, etc. are within 2-5 minutes driving time.
The other residents are so nice! They are personable, quiet, respectful and invested in the community. The community is safe and secure. I have packages delivered to my door which sometimes sit there all day when I am busy elsewhere. None have been missing.
I absolutely love my new apartment/community and would highly recommend it for anyone considering independent senior living!!!!
I love it here at The Legends!
I love it here at The Legends! It’s clean, it’s friendly. If you need anything, just ask Sue and she will get it done! I enjoy a view of the North Ponds Park. So far, I have seen it through late summer, fall (beautiful!), and winter. I am looking forward to the spring.
I highly recommend The Legends if you are looking for a place to come home to relax.
I have lived here at Legends for 1 1/2 years and it has been such a wonderful experience! This is so much more than just an apartment complex. It’s a home in a loving community of people who are smart, genuine and fun! We are engaged in all kinds of activities including a book club, bingo, theme dinners, trivia night, movies, exercise, chair massage, bible study, coffee hour, holiday party, and music. We use our beautiful community room for all kinds of activities we enjoy. Another thing I love is when you go away, you just turn your key and you are gone. No worries about shoveling or cutting the grass while you are gone! And if anything comes up that needs repair or even a light bulb changed, it’s done by their outstanding maintenance crew in no time! I love it here and have made so many new friends from all walks of life. It truly is a wonderful home. I recommend it highly!!!
Welcoming, Caring, Friendly
I have lived at The Legends At North Ponds for almost 3 years and found it to be a welcoming friendly and caring community. The office and maintenance staff are both courteous and responsive at all time. Visitors often comment on the well maintained grounds. There are many activities to choose from including the monthly coffee gathering in the community room where neighbors get to meet each other. The adjacent North Ponds Park offers the opportunity to observe nature, go fishing or walk the 1 mile track. Close by are many stores to shop at. I have thoroughly enjoyed living at The Legends at North Ponds!
