The development is close to 494, so there is quick access to anywhere you want to go. However, even though we are close to a freeway, it is almost like being in a rural area. The view from our deck is of Carver Lake Park – and the lake itself. I have seen other reviews in which the reviewer complains about hearing noise from neighbors. Very rarely we have heard a little noise if a neighbor has music on or is watching a noisy movie. But even on those rare occasions, it has not been very loud – certainly not loud enough to be bothersome. Staff members are professional and pleasant.
