Wonderful Active Living Happy for 13 years! Peaceful!…  Bob Oust Resident since 2003

Retirement Happiness! If you think you will be bored in retirement, then visit us here in SLV! We are busier now than before and having the time of our lives. And what a caring neighborhood. Need a highchair for visiting grandchild, need to borrow a hole digger? Make your needs known via our Neighborlink newsletter issued twice daily. Social media at it’s best… Sarah R Resident since 2005

SLV is the perfect place to retire! SLV is not one of your routine retirement villages, in fact, it is not a retirement village at all. There are two championship golf courses, an incredible lake, and miles of biking and walking trails. Our biggest complaint is there’s not enough time in one day to do all of the activities that are available here, This is THE place for the young at heart!… Barb S. Resident since 2000

Perfect Place to Retire This is the only place with which I am familiar where we have First Responders, Neighborlink, caring and friendly neighbors, two beautiful golf courses, lots of water and many other amenities. What more can I say? I love it here… Barabara Z Resident since 1990

A great place to live! From our very first visit to SLV, we knew we wanted to retire here because of its natural beauty, all the amenities and the sense of community. We came here from Illinois not knowing anyone. From day one, everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. There are so many activities, clubs and fun events to participate in, but because SLV is located in a beautiful serene area with its lake and woods… Terry & Marlene O Resident since 2000
