"My husband and I decided to move into the community of North Star (Villas). It will soon be 2 years. It was everything we expected and more!  With all the advantages and activities they offer here, we are so pleased with everything. The residents here are so nice. I enjoy saying hello to passing friends as they walk by. If you need anything done or have questions to ask just call the office and Debbie will sure take care of you. My husband and I are glad to say “we love our forever home at North Star Villas!”

"Thelma and I have been here at North Star for a little more than a year. Long enough to be comfortable but still finding ourselves hunting for one item or another we know came with us but is now hiding! We have been blessed with welcoming neighbors, staff, management and owners that are very willing to help, and many unexpected kindnesses. The friendliness of everyone on this campus is very special. The newness is now gone. Now this is home."

-Millard Niver

We like living at North Star for the last fifteen years because it is a safe and quiet community. We also have to mow no grass or shovel no snow! We have a club house with a beautiful pool and we enjoy all of the activities including bingo and cards. The office personnel are always very helpful for whatever you may need. It’s just a great place to live!

North Star is a beautiful place to retire. My husband and I have resided at North Star for 5 years now. It has been a lovely, pleasant, very peaceful and pet friendly place to retire. The Community Clubhouse has much to offer and the residents are very friendly. Also having the opportunity to have your own flowers, along with a vegetable garden is a plus. Having essentials nearby such as groceries, banks, pharmacies, restaurants, and hair stylists, is also a nice amenity. It has been a pleasure to have this type of community available.
