Live and Play Well in The Cottages

Posted on: March 8th, 2022

In the Cottages by Jim Chapman Communities, residents can enjoy the flexibility of a carefree, lock-and-leave lifestyle. And because they don’t need to worry about the hassles that come with homeownership – like yardwork – those who choose to live here have more time to get out and enjoy their neighborhood.

And The Cottages communities have plenty to enjoy! We offer resort-style amenities that keep our residents as active or as rested as they want to be.

It starts with our community designs. Sidewalks in our gated communities invite residents out for early morning jogs, afternoon strolls or moonlight walks without worries of strangers passing by on public streets. Dog-walks are a special treat because they often end with a pick-up game of frisbee in the dog park. And after a game of frisbee, park benches are the perfect spot to rest and catch up with the neighbors.

Next, everyone is welcome at the Resident Clubhouse. In addition to gathering areas, the clubhouse includes a 24-hour access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, where residents get all the benefits of a private gym without leaving the community – or incurring the expense of membership fees! Free weights, resistance training, cardio machines and special fitness programs keep residents physically fit.

Step outside to find a resort-style pool that provides a perfect place to soak up some sun, cool off from the summer heat, gather with friends or escape from the world. Residents can swim laps for exercise, enjoy water games for fun, or lounge poolside with a good book for relaxation.

In The Cottages communities, residents are not left to fend for themselves when it comes to meeting their neighbors. Professional staff members organize exclusive resident events including movies on the lawn, food truck Saturdays, pizza night, best holiday décor contests with prizes and more.

For many residents, the very best amenities available at The Cottages communities are brought by the professional staff members who are on-site every day to oversee the leasing and management. Their presence ensures the facilities and grounds are well-maintained, and there’s always someone nearby to help in case of an issue. In fact, 24-hour emergency maintenance service is available. No need to fear paying weekend rates to get a plumber out if the water heater floods or to get on a long waiting list if the AC goes out on a summer day!

And that yard work that our residents are glad to leave behind? The Cottages’ professional landscapers take care of that too. When you live here, your only outdoors job is to enjoy the grounds as you walk through them on your way to do things that are more fun and less work.

It’s a resort-style life every day of the year!
