"I decided to treat myself to the "snowbird" life after 35 years of educating children in Michigan. What a fabulous retreat Karen, Tom and their beautiful Cherry Oaks carriage home provided for us. We had a blast and enjoyed all that Fiddlers Creek had to offer. The Walsh family are the best and go out of their way to make sure a fantastic stay is had by all. Their living areas are clean, comfortable, spacious and homey. I did not want to leave! Reflective times sitting out on the lanai watching the golfers and sunsets were among my favorites.
I made many new friends in Florida because I lived at the pools, tennis courts and walking/bike trails. Many of my new friends call and text me daily. I feel like I left a "home away from home" that was a memory of a lifetime. I loved the staff and everyone went out of their way to make sure a 5 star experience was had. I can not wait to go back next year! A brilliant celebration of life, new chapters, friendships and active lifestyle were received on a daily basis. Thanks Tom and Karen for sharing your little slice of heaven with a Kalamazoo gal who loves to see her son and sun!!!! It made the start of my retirement a very special time. I tried to sit out on my lanai when I came back to Michigan but it was raining and 50 degrees....just not the same experience....Life is good, especially when shared at Cherry Oaks within Fiddlers Creek. Thanks for the memories....I'm very thankful!"
