"I don’t have the foggiest recollection of how we heard of Meadow Ridge, but I’m certainly glad we did. Meadow Ridge is undoubtedly the best decision we ever made."

Betty Lee Kent

"Coming to a community sooner can give you such a better life. People focus on the cost while forgetting all the things they pay for now. Look at how much you get here."

Judy Manderbach

After Judy and her husband, Aaron, looked at several communities, but none measured up to Meadow Ridge. "They take very good care of us. It’s luxury living in a beautiful setting. We live a very free and relaxed lifestyle. That’s just as it should be."
